By Business Wire News


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Global Human Machine Interface (HMI) Market 2015-2019” report to their offering.

The global HMI market to grow at a CAGR of 7.73% over the period 2015-2019

HMI systems are a combination of software and hardware that provide an interface between automated systems and humans by using HMI software or HMI panels. It helps operators interact with automated systems in vehicles and understand the plant floor automation process. HMI systems are widely adopted for plant automation purposes. They help feed in the inputs and monitor, control, and check the parameters that are connected to control systems in a plant.

The requirement for faster, advanced, and more responsive HMI systems having additional features has created the need for multitouch HMI devices. The use of smartphones and other devices in day-to-day life will ensure that multitouch panels do not require much user training.

According to the report, the need for higher efficiency in plant operations is driving the packaging, food and beverage, and automotive industries to adopt HMI devices. There is a need for reducing the human interface and increasing the real-time monitoring and process control. This will help in preventing damage to life and property. The use of automation systems will help reduce maintenance costs and machine downtime and increase productivity as accurate information regarding the operations will help in a better decision-making process.

Further, the report states that there is a lack of standardization of HMI systems as vendors offer customized products to their customers.

The following are the major end-users in the global HMI market: packaging industry, food and beverage industry, automotive industry, pharmaceuticals industry, utilities sector, metals manufacturing industry, and other industries.
