Global Human Machine Interface Market Research, 2031

The global human machine interface market size was valued at $4 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $10.8 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 10.8% from 2022 to 2031.

A human machine interface (HMI) is an electronic device component that allows the user to easily communicate and interact with the machine or system. HMI is made up of a number of hardware and software components that convert human inputs into signals that the machine may use to produce results. Moreover, motion sensors, peripheral devices, speech-recognition interfaces, and other devices are used to transmit information via sound, sight, heat, and touch. It helps to reduce errors while also improving customer satisfaction, efficiency, and comfort.

Surge in industrial automation drives the human machine interface market growth. Industrial factories and control automation devices are executed for reducing human interaction in the development of products and services. This, in turn, reduces labor and production costs thereby helping to increase the production output. In addition, increase in demand for monitoring the production plants in various industries such as mining, automotive, and oil and gas drives the significant demand for human machine interface. These factors drive the growth of the human machine interface market. However, the installation cost of a human machine interface system is high, which restrains the growth of the human machine interface market. On the contrary, the increase in popularity of AR and VR technology and multi-touch screens is anticipated to provide lucrative opportunities for the growth of the human machine interface market.

Top Impacting Factors

Surge in industrial automation  

Industrial automation refers to practices of software and control systems to monitor and operate independently as mechanized system solutions of manufacturing processes. Industrial factories and control automation devices are executed for reducing human interaction in the development of products and services. This, in turn, reduces labor and production costs, thereby helping to increase the production output. Moreover, human machine interface (HMI) plays a vital part in industrial automation to improve industrial controls. Many industries such as packaging, pharmaceutical, energy, mining, automobile, petrochemical, and oil & gas has witnessed automation in the recent past. In addition, the integration of advanced HMI solutions and connectivity technology with various industrial automation equipment has tremendously increased the quality, productivity, and mobility of plant assets such as machinery and equipment. These factors are expected to drive growth of the global human machine interface industry during the forecast period.

Increase in demand for monitoring the production plants

The growth in need for efficiently monitoring the production plants in various industries such as mining, automotive, and oil and gas drives the significant demand for HMI software. Moreover, rise in demand for smart technological solutions across the manufacturing and processing industries is expected to spur the human machine interface market growth. In addition, the blending of technological and logical software is anticipated to enhance quality and productivity, thereby leading to an increase in demand for human interface systems. Furthermore, the introduction of IIOT and HTML5 enables end users with more convenience and flexibility to propel the human machine interface industry growth. The launch of the latest version of software programs is projected to allow optimum running, visualization, and analyzing equipment and machinery across industries. Moreover, there is growth in market for human-machine interfaces as a result of a number of issues, including strict regulations for the adoption of energy efficiency, workplace safety, and rise in labor wages.   

High costs and investment        

The installation cost of a human machine interface system is high, which acts as a major restraint for the growth of the market. The high installation cost of the HMI system is due to the involvement of various stages, such as consultation, acquisition, implementation, and running costs, that further increases the expenditure of the installing company. Moreover, some advanced technologies including multi-touch screen, laser key panels, voice recognition, and gesture recognition are expensive to purchase and install. . The huge installation cost and lack of skilled operators is the main factor behind the slow adoption of these technologies. These factors are expected to hinder the market growth during the forecast period.

Inadequate HMI design

Human machine interface provides numerous advantages, but  it still has various deficiencies that can result in accidental and psychological risks. Moreover, the use of inadequate HMI systems can lead to various occupational accidents. HMI systems are complex and need to be operated by skilled personnel. These operators require proper training regarding the use of the systems. In addition, the machine operator may suffer from cognitive overload in case information provided by systems is ambiguous or not readily understandable. In some cases, accidents occur due to operational errors such as failure to act other information provided by the interface or inability to operate machine correctly. All these factors are expected to restrain growth of the global human machine interface market during the forecast period.

Rise in deployment of advanced technologies

The increase in popularity of AR and VR technology and multi-touch screens fuel the growth of the market. Moreover, loT has transformed the operations of various industries, including manufacturing. The application of loT across manufacturing industries can be termed Industrial loT. In addition, the human machine interface is projected to reduce the operational expenses by substituting various indicator lights, selectors, and push buttons, along with lowering the necessity of additional cables and display panels. Furthermore, with the implementation of a flexible HMI facility, managers can improve productivity by reducing start-up time. All these factors are projected to provide lucrative opportunities for the growth of the human machine interface market share.

Increase in adoption of mobile HMIs

Mobile HMIs are gaining popularity, as connectivity becomes increasingly indispensable in industrial automation. They allow workers who need access to information about their machines while out on the shop floor to connect with data systems without needing to return to the control room or office to do so. Moreover, mobile devices are being used as an interface for IIoT systems, allowing machine parameters to be monitored and controlled wherever the device is located. In addition, modern HMIs allow manufacturing plants of all sizes to achieve greater efficiency through faster performance, improved connectivity, and more intuitive user interfaces that promote safety of operators. The future of HMI is bright, with all aspects of plant control being revolutionized by connectivity, mobile technology, and automation.
