Technavio industrial automation analysts highlight the following three factors that are contributing to the growth of the global industrial motherboards market:
- Increased adoption of fan-less industrial motherboards
- Rise in adoption of industrial PCs
- High investments by EU for industrial automation
Increased adoption of fan-less industrial motherboards
The operation of industrial PCs, PLCs, and DCS involves the transmission of data among various components which generates a lot of heat which damage the industrial motherboard, if the heat energy is not dissipated properly. Traditionally fans were used for the dissipation of excess heat, however fans are prone to mechanical failure which compromises the integrity of the overall system.
Hence, fan-less industrial motherboards with chassis heatsinks are increasingly being adopted. Chassis heatsinks are noiseless as compared to fans and improve the overall ergonomics.
“They allow engineers to exercise more creativity in designing the overall system and decrease the footprint size of the overall industrial motherboard, making them ideal for space constraints areas,” says Bharath.
Rise in adoption of industrial PCs
The global industrial PC market is expected to grow at a CAGR of close to 6%. Industrial PCs, especially panel PCs, are being adopted to increase production and maintain quality. Automation and IIoT are being adopted on a broad scale in various discrete and process industries such as semiconductor and electronics, paper and pulp, as well as food and beverage for real-time data acquisition, analysis, measurement, image processing, material transfer, and control of machine tending operations.
Motherboards are indispensable components of industrial PC systems, and adoption rates have also increased due to maintenance and servicing requirements of industrial PCs. Hence, the steady growth of the industrial PC market is expected to have a positive impact on the growth of the industrial motherboard market during the forecast period.
High investments by EU for industrial automation
In March 2016, the European Commission announced multiple funds to promote indigenous industries and ensure economic growth in Europe. Such developments should improve growth of industries in the EU, which will increase the adoption of process control solutions like industrial PCs and PLCs where industrial motherboards are in much demand.
The EU is promoting the growth of SMEs to safeguard the development of the metal processing and semiconductor industries. The union has increased investments in industrial automation to compete with low-cost labor countries (like Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Vietnam, Cambodia, India, and Indonesia) and prevent outsourcing of manufacturing activities. This is expected to boost the market for industrial motherboards during the forecast period.
