Industrial PCs are high-performance computing solutions that offer flexible I/O interface and display options. They help support multiple networks, peripherals, sensors, actuators, and displays. Traditionally, there are various types of IPC solution including panels, boxes, racks, embedded panels, embedded boxes and thin clients. These industrial PCs are used for various applications in industrial, transportation, medical, telecom, military and other sectors.
Superior features of an Industrial PC such as being fan-less, long product life, ability to perform in harsh environment make it an ideal material in the plethora of applications such as industrial sector, transportation, healthcare, services, telecom, defense etc. The factors leading to increased interest in the IPC market include demand for automation, increasing operational efficiency, growing need for IoT and Smart City. However, the market’s potential is somewhat hindered by high price of the IPC, and lack of skilled labor. In spite of this, there is a huge opportunity for existing & new IPC producers.
Although, the adoption rate of IPC is increasing, mass-market adoption will not be achieved until a few major challenges are addressed. These challenges include high cost of Installation, entry of new players, and lack of effective product differentiation. Industrial sector and the transportation sector are the top contributors of the IPC market and together account for more than 50% of the IPC market. This growth is attributed to their wide application area. The advantages of IPC over normal PCs make it a very attractive market for investment.
