The global Human Machine Interface (HMI) market is expected to reach USD 6.31 billion by 2022, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Advancement in HMI programming software in order to incorporate ability for managing multi-vendor environment is anticipated to escalate industry growth over the next few years. Benefits offered such as remote operation coupled with the widespread usage of HMIs across oil & gas and water treatment plant for operating in harsh conditions may also elevate product demand significantly. This has also instigated vendors to manufacture devices with better wear and tear property.

Growing trend towards protocol conversion to exchange data between all connected devices is estimated to further catalyze human machine interface industry growth. Technological development such as open platform architecture resulting in improvement of the migration process is also anticipated to fuel demand considerably over the forecast period.

High upfront capital and need for change in business process to integrate HMIs are key challenges anticipated to impact the industry. In addition, lack of skilled professionals and awareness on HMIs among management and lower level executives may also pose a challenge to market growth over the coming years.

Human Machine Interface (HMI) Application:

HMI terminals are significantly used in manufacturing industry for automation for improvement of overall plant management by improving communication between user & machine, providing warning & alarms, and cost reduction. Rapid industrialization in several emerging economies such as India and China is expected to be a key factor for future growth.

Key end-use industries with heavy demand include food & beverages, oil & gas, and packaging. Increasing shale oil extraction significantly in North America may increase need for industrial automation, thereby offering avenues for growth.

In automobiles, usage of advanced technology has transformed the car dashboard layout to more flexible, dynamic and adaptable design. Standalone systems may increase safety risks; however, integration of speech input/output system with HMIs may lower driver distraction while commanding vehicles, and may catalyze industry growth.

Use cases in the healthcare sector mainly include emotions analytics. The industry has witnessed growing application in unmanned vehicles & drones, and cyber security in the military aerospace and defense sector

Further Key Findings from the Report:

  • Interface software market accounted for substantial revenue share in 2014. The segment is also anticipated to exhibit high growth with an estimated CAGR exceeding 10% over the next few years. This may be attributed to the increasing adoption of PC- based open source monitoring and controlling system worldwide.
  • Development of new and innovative displays along with emergence of industrial internet of things may contribute towards further growth in the display terminal segment.
  • Oil & gas emerged as the dominant application and accounted for over 20% of the overall revenue in 2014. This may be attributed to increasing demand from the oil & gas sector owing to the benefits offered by HMI regarding the flow of information inside a pipeline without updated monitoring capabilities for overcoming a particular problem.
  • HMI offers several benefits regarding driver safety and security by integrating solutions such as ADAS, ACC and LDW, which are expected to drive demand in the automotive industry.
  • North America HMI market is estimated to hold majority share and accounted for more than 30% of the consumption in 2014. Additionally, Asia Pacific is anticipated to exhibit high growth over the next few years. This may be attributed to the migration of manufacturing processes to developing regions in order to capitalize on labor cost and high availability of raw materials in this region.
  • Key companies dominating human machine interface market share include ABB Ltd., Eaton Corp., Emerson Electric Corp., General Electric Co., Omron Corp., Honeywell International Inc., Siemens AG, and Rockwell Automation Inc.
