Human Machine Interface Market Analysis

The human-machine interface market is expected to register a CAGR of 10.3% over the forecast period. Features, such as alarm warnings, safe messaging, and improved internal communications, are expected to provide an advantage to a facility regarding security, operations, and production. Newer HMI is expected to reduce operation costs by substituting traditional push buttons, indicator lights, and selectors, lowering the requirement of additional display panels and cables, and further enhancing monitoring of the machines.

  • The significance of user interfaces has become increasingly clear over the past years. Apple's products, such as iPod or iPhone, are iconic examples of how intuitive user interfaces have entirely changed the perception of particular product types. The success of Apple's products and other consumer-oriented merchandise shows that standard aesthetics products, graphics, and environment significantly contribute to brand distinction and consistent customer experiences. Many industrial corporations have arrived at the same conclusion and are starting to focus more on the quality of user interfaces in their products. Higher levels of functionality and interactions embedded in the HMI and increasing need of users, such as multi-touch screens and high-quality displays, are expected to drive the market growth.
  • Also, HMI is used in various avenues, including manufacturing plants, vending machines, the food and beverage industry, pharmaceuticals, and other utilities. HMIs, in combination with PLCs, are the mainstay of the production line in these industries. The integration of the HMI into manufacturing has vastly improved operations. The HMI enables supervisory control and data acquisition in the entire system, so parameter changes are feasible as the operator chooses. For example, in the manufacturing of metals, HMI might control the method and speed at which a metal is cut and folded. HMI offers improved stock control and replenishment, so fewer trips are required out to vendors.
  • According to British Petroleum (BP), global oil consumption reached approximately 94.1 million barrels per day in 2021, an increase of over six percent compared to the previous year. In addition, BP also stated that even after all kinds of financial crises and the coronavirus pandemic, oil consumption has consecutively increased every year since 1998 and is expected to increase more in the future as well, which will, in return, lead to an increase in market numbers for the HMI market.
  • The outbreak of COVID-19 influenced global industrial spending significantly over the period, as the non-operational status of various industries deemed non-essential by governments across the world faced huge losses during the initial face, which later went to a steady approach towards regular industrial work as the things went back to normal after governments around the globe removed their respective lockdown phases.

Human Machine Interface Industry Segmentation

Human-machine interface (HMI) is used to optimize a process by centralizing and digitizing for the user, where the operators can see important pieces of information in different forms of graphs, chatbots, or digital assistance. The adoption of automation in various end-user industries, like food and beverages, packaging, etc., to increase operational efficiencies is a significant trend catalyzing the expansion of the human-machine interface market. The increasing number of industrial applications and automation in the United States is expected to propel the utilization of human-machine interfaces in the country, helping the industry grow.

Human Machine Interface Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Human Machine Interface Market according to our research experts:

Automotive is Expected to Hold Significant Share

  • The constant updation and upgradation of the automobile is a major factor driving the HMI market. For instance, in November 2022, Ford revealed the ultra-high specification Ranger Platinum pickup with exclusive exterior detailing and finishes that enhance the Ranger’s already characterful design, matched by a stylish and contemporary leather-trimmed cabin. In addition, Ranger Platinum is available exclusively in five-seat, double cab specification and is powered by Ford’s 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel engine. With the craze for luxury and comfort among the people being the priority, the HMI market is also expected to grow.
  • Additionally, according to Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d'Automobiles (OICA), in year 2021, approimately 80 million motor vehicles were produced globally, which is approx. An increase of 3% compared to the previous year is expected to grow more in the forecasted period. Hence, the market for HMI is also likely to be increased during the period.
  • In November 2022, Grupo Antolin, a global supplier of technological solutions for car interiors, introduced an Innovative Upper Trim concept featuring a simple and humanized design for overhead systems. The company announced it as a second of a series of new Grupo Antolin concepts with a precise and single aim to embrace future mobility through Innovation.
  • Moreover, in December 2022, Parkopedia announced its new service in all vehicles with BMW Operating Systems 7 and 8, enabling drivers to pay effortlessly for parking in Germany and Austria. Moreover, the company has also planned for further expansion to other European countries in 2023.

Asia-Pacific is Expected to Witness Fastest Growth

  • Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at a higher rate than other regions because of the increase in disposable income and population. In this region, China and Japan are considered to be the manufacturing hubs of the equipment required for the human interface machine. Also, in India, manufacturing has emerged as one of the high-growth sectors. The 'Make in India' initiative places India on the global map as a manufacturing hub and significantly recognizes the Indian economy.
  • According Indian Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), in September 2021, the Indian Government approved a PLI scheme worth USD 3.53 billion for the auto and drone industries to boost India’s manufacturing capabilities.
  • Additionally, according to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), India has the potential to become a global manufacturing hub. By 2030, the country can add more than USD 500 billion annually to the global economy, which means the market for the HMI will also increase during that period in the region, which will drive the market.
  • Moreover, according to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM), the sales of New Energy Vehicles (NEVs) in September 2022 were seen to be around 71 thousand, and from January to September was to be seen approximately 457 thousand, which shows there was a constant demand for NEVs in the market of China, which will result in the sale of HMI products in the region and will drive the market.
