Global Human Machine Interface Market 2016-2020

About Human Machine Interface (HMI)

HMI is a tool that helps machines and humans communicate. HMI systems are widely adopted for plant automation; they help operators interact with automation systems and understand the plant floor automation process. This system helps feed inputs, and monitors, controls, and checks the parameters connected to the control system. It enhances operational efficiency, and reduces cost associated with industries.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Human Machine Interface Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global human machine interface market: GE, Rockwell Automation, Schneider Electric, and Siemens.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Advantech, Atmel, Beijer Electronics, EAO, Eaton, Elektrobit, Elipse Software, Bosch Rexroth, Digital Electronics, Mitsubishi Electric, Progea, Omron, Emerson Electric, Interlink Electronics, and Yokogawa Electric.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “An important trend driving market growth is the growing demand for smart factories. Manufacturing countries, such as China and Germany, are automating their factories to sustain business in the competitive market. This may enable precise communication and coordination in factories, and ensure flexible underlying processes. The manufacturing companies use sensors, robots, wireless systems, enterprise software, and automation solutions, such as DCS, PLC, and SCADA, to automate end-to-end processes. The process and discrete industries use these systems to identify the best industry practices and share information, data retrieval, and documentation. ”

According to the report, an increased focus on equipment and employee safety is making the use of HMI necessary in a working environment. Industries are making efforts to reduce industrial accidents due to process failure, which if not corrected may cause fatal injuries to employees and lead to financial loss, plant shutdown, or heavy refurbishing requirements.

In addition, the market has experienced a high number of litigations, as countries worldwide implement and enforce industrial safety measures and standards. The EU and other countries, such as the US, have formulated strict guidelines for various industries to improve the safety of operations and reduce emissions from facilities.

Further, the report states that every company is becoming increasingly vulnerable to cyberattacks due to an increased use of automated systems, including HMI.
