Technavio analysts highlight the following three factors that are contributing to the growth of the global HMI software market:

Technological developments in HMI software

There are many developments and upgrading within the HMI software such as advancements in modules, which makes it easier for system integrated programming. Other developments include communication protocols that allow users to configure systems as per their requirements. This software helps in data logging and can be accessed with the help of cloud-based data storage or through serial ports.

Bharath Kanniappan, a lead automation research analyst at Technavio, says, “Due to the increase in usage of touch interface panels in HMI, there has been upgrading in the software, which provides a better user interface for touch panels. These advancements and developments are creating the demand for HMI software.”

Increasing need to improve process efficiency in manufacturing plants

One of the main reasons for implementing automation within manufacturing plants is to reduce the operational cost and increase the process efficiency. There are many vendors that offer customizable solutions for HMI software. There are also HMI devices that can run on third-party software, making it much easier for end-users to acquire these devices.

HMI software helps in increasing the production efficiency and process visualization, which helps end-users in designing analytical models. It is very important for manufacturing plants to monitor and control each process, which makes process visualization and real-time data availability a necessity in plants,” adds Bharath.

Usage of analytics among end-user industries

The main purpose of using HMI solutions in manufacturing plants is to monitor and control process parameters and collect real-time data. HMI solutions aid in developing trend-charts with real-time data for analyzing the process, thereby developing a process and production plan. There is an increase in the usage of analytics among end-user industries as they aid in quantifying the status of plants and increase the visibility of process flow and parameters through data visualization. HMI software acts as a backbone for analytics with the help of real-time data available.
