Europe has been at the fore front of the industrial revolution, and is home to premium manufacturing. However, it has lost a considerable share to the emerging markets. With Industrial 4.0, the term coined in Germany, establishing labs like Fraunhofers in Germany, TNOs in the Netherlands or Catapults in the UK, Europe is in a race to seize the opportunities of the fourth industrial revolution. This strive get ahead in the race and win back the share will lead to designing sensors into industrial machinery and household appliances, equipping them with operating systems, HMI and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) software. This will push HMI vendors to meet the demand for innovative features and value-added services.
HMI is a graphical software application that provides operational process information to the operator or the user enabling interaction between humans and machines, for machines to receive and execute the operator’s control instructions. HMI increases the efficiency of the user and secures the data. Though, initial high costs associated with deploying such products act as a challenge to its growth, HMIs are not limited to manufacturing enterprises. They are being increasingly used by various enterprises operating in industry verticals like energy, healthcare and defence.
HMI solutions have evolved a lot over the years and continue to take inspiration from the consumer products. Features such as recognition of hand gestures, 3D-style graphics, icon based navigations, so on and so forth, are being incorporated to create user-friendly and intuitive user interfaces.
This report provides a comprehensive analysis of Europe Human Machine Interface Market for the period 2014 to 2019 covering various aspects of the industry, technologies and regional trends contributing towards the growth of this market. Some of the major vendors mentioned in the report are Honeywell, Rockwell Automation, Schneider Electric, Bosch, Mitsubishi, General Electric and others.
