The technological advancements attained in the field of automation and the evolution of touch screen technology has discovered a common platform to deliver new range of control function modules across all industrial applications both in industrial and commercial sector. Touch based human machine interface are one of the emerging technology and is all set to take a significant shift in all the leading end user industry verticals. The touch based human machine is an instinctive programming interface that allows operators to make efficient decisions and establish fast communication network with the help of Internet of Things (IoT) concept. Touch screen HMIs have turned out to be an efficient solution for automation for a wide range of applications in manufacturing, digital signage, automotive, aerospace, retail and so on. The product has gained more adaptation in the commercial sector apart from its broad range of applications in industrial automation. In industry applications, touch based applications are basically used as operator panels, control and monitoring devices and industrial PCs.

According to a recent study from IndustryARC, the touch based human machine interface market report is forecast to reach $32.61 billion by 2020 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 26.7%. The growth in the touch based HMI market can be attributed to the increase in demand for the connected products and the high standards set by the industries to meet the production target.

The touch based HMI market are all set to propel into the commercial sector with a broad range of application in retail, branding, advertising and for promotional activities. The use of digital signage, Point of Sale (PoS), interactive kiosks is perceived to propel in the coming years on the back of the initiatives towards a digitized world. Moreover, the price of the advanced software for data visualization and interpretation could pose threat to the adaptation of the touch screen HMI devices. However, the functions performed by these HMIs and the ability of these devices to cut short time and to bring down the operating expenses will certainly overpower the constraints and challenges for the touch screen HMI market.

The Asia Pacific touch based HMI market is forecast to witness high rate of adaptation compared to other regions. The presence of a large number of developing markets in the A-PAC is one of the key factors driving the growth of the touch screen HMI market. China, India and South East Asia countries are speculated to make huge investments in the automation sector by 2018 to equip their manufacturing and industrial plants with automated solutions to improvise the production process and achieve set targets. Japan being one of the technology advanced nations is a big market for touch screen HMIs and is currently using these devices across all sorts of industry verticals at a higher scale. Australia and New Zealand are the mature markets but the touch based HMIs shipments are projected to surge as the countries are shifting towards more automated and advanced military equipment.
