A human machine interface (HMI) stands as a key constituent for these sweeping automation trends wherein it plays a vital role in presenting information to an operator or the user about the state of a process, and in accepting and implementing the operator’s control instructions. In this context, an HMI enables both the representation of information in GUI and as part of SCADA systems. Both capabilities of control systems and thus are evolving with the growth and expectations of key infrastructural and manufacturing end-users. The growing focus on safety, energy efficiency, better productivity, and sustainability is driving the growth of the global HMI market. The implementation of industrial automation and centralized systems for effective integration and implementation across industries will boost the demand for these systems in the market. The high degree of customization and the use of this technology for PLC will for higher precision and efficiency across industries in the global human machine interface market.

Continuous shift from WIMP-based GUI to Multi-touch GUI will drive the human machine interface market growth
Internet of Things (IoT) is likely to change data capturing and handling dramatically, automated gesture recognition systems. IOT helps to gather significant interest, moderation and fundamental shifts in the wearables market, and virtualization and automation to majorly impact the development in the global HMI market. Factory automation is among the latest trends that is propelling the growth of the human machine interface market during the forecast period. The report discusses the major trends and drivers, which are likely to shape the HMI market. A continuous shift from WIMP (Windows-Icon-Mouse-Pointer Based GUI) to Multi-Touch GUI, rise of augmented reality (AR) and immersive experiences, and overwhelming rise in global industrial automation expenditure are the key factors that are likely to drive the human machine interface market. The growing demand for factory automation systems will augment the adoption of this technology in the global human machine interface market.
Motion technology to post the highest growth rate of 10% during the forecast period.
Tactile, optical, and acoustic technologies together held 90.7% of the market share in 2016. The main driving factor of these technologies is that they provide effective public interface applications in the human machine interface market. The bionic technology will be the major revenue contributing segment of the global HMI market. Also, the motion technology will post the highest growth rate of more than 10% during the forecast period.
The analysts at Arizton expect that embedded configuration will have the dominance over the human machine interface market growing rapidly compared with the standalone segment. Similarly, the software interface will post a rapid growth rate during the forecast period but the hardware interface will remain the dominant segment in terms of revenue. In 2022, the automotive, chemicals and petrochemicals, and food and beverage manufacturing sectors will be the major end-users of the global HMI market.
North America to remain the largest market followed by Europe
The global HMI market, which is concentrated in four countries, constituting about half of the global market size, is China, Japan, Canada, and the US. The demand for these technology implementations in the North America region is driven by a high awareness of their advantages over conventional products, better product availability, and extensive reach of innovative products in the human machine interface market. The US is the world’s largest HMI market, driven by a high degree of automation, better availability of range and awareness, followed by China. The human machine interface market in Europe is largely driven by the demand from key end-user industries in Germany, the UK, and France.
