The Internet of Things (IoT) is the next generation of the Internet based on the Internet Protocol (IP). It facilitates end-point devices by allowing the automatized use of data generated by sensors or devices that are connected to wired communication networks. The Internet of Things and AIS has already been making a significant impact on the transportation industry, providers, cities and consumers.
Human Machine Interfaces plays a significant role in industrial automation, enabling the efficient operation and monitoring of essential production devices. Growth in the automation industries which in turn enhanced the growth in HMI market is a major driver.
The global market for commercial Building Automation Systems (BAS) will double and reach $146 billion by 2021. Building Automation Products and Services: Bridging the gap between building control and network information systems. Commercial property management firms, IT and business process outsourcing, and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) firms will partner to provide complete building and energy management services.
The automation expenditures for food and beverage outlook examine the market for automation products and systems. Much of the current Human Machine Interface deployment focuses on projects that improve hardware and software flexibility and comprehensive device management, more intelligent functionality, greater compliance with environmental regulations, ensure better product safety and reduce costs.
The North American economy is beginning to show some positive signs - there is a pent-up demand for new packaging, new products, and new technologies to increase packaging line productivity. The OEM packaging machine builders will pick up on Human Machine Interface (HMI) systems' growing ability to monitor and control operating conditions utilizing off-the-shelf HMI hardware and software.
The utilities industry is expected to increase investments on power, water and wastewater infrastructure development to meet increasing demands. HMIs are progressively being implemented in utility markets. Increased manufacturing activity and population spurs demand for highly effective and efficient monitoring and operating interfaces for power generation, transmission, and distribution in order to optimize power usage.
Consumer packaged goods (CPG) are consumable goods such as food and beverages, footwear and apparel, tobacco, and cleaning products. The consumer packaged goods industry is one of the largest in North America, valued at approximately US$2 trillion. Offering a flexible HMI solution architecture build around an open platform empower companies to mix and match the best solutions quickly meeting production requirements.
