A human-machine interface (HMI) is referred to a user dashboard or interface that connects an individual to a system, machine, or device. Although the term HMI is technically applied to any screen which allows a person to interact with any device, it is typically used in the context of varied industrial processes. Within industrial settings, HMI offers several uses such as monitoring inputs and outputs of a machine, tracking production time, tags and trends, supervising key performance indicators (KPI), and others.

Traditionally, human-machine interfaces are connected to a component called Programming Logic Controller (PLC) for integrating them within the manufacturing line. This PLC inputs data from users and sends it to the HMI, which ultimately displays the information received from such PLC to the specified user. The basic HMI offers information that comprises vital parameters such as material counts, processing counts of machines, and the status of the machinery.

Several multimedia-rich industrial HMIs are being created for the smart-factory environment. These HMIs allow users to get integrated SMS or email alerts regarding the machine status, along with providing the access to integrated videos of the activities on the factory floor. More advanced HMIs offer remote control of several machines and processes on multiple sites and a detailed analysis of manufacturing facilities\' operations.

Market Dynamics:


The growing rate of industrialization due to urbanization propels the human machine interface market shares due to the increase in production activities. Further, manufacturing facilities have started to initiate high spending on technology integration within production plants to monitor and track industrial operations. Moreover, the increased demand for industrial automation equipment such as field devices, smart equipment, and others to improve productivity, quality, and connectivity with technology also fuels market growth.


The integration of such HMIs involves high installation, maintenance, and running costs. This creates inconvenience for small enterprises to allocate their limited resources and budgets towards such expensive human-machine interfaces. Further, the shortage of skilled technicians to control highly advanced and complex industrial automation equipment restricts the wide adoption of HMIs. Moreover, the strict regulations and protocols for introducing such highly technical interfaces within manufacturing facilities also limit market growth. These protocols take into consideration every aspect from the perspective of human safety to the overall control of important production tasks.


The scope of upgrade in industrial internet infrastructure is expected to offer creative opportunities for advanced integration of HMIs within manufacturing facilities. The future of HMIs will also include a large number of interfaces ranging from augmented reality (AR), natural language processing, virtual reality (VR), and voice-based HMI. Furthermore, the availability of 5G technology in some cities would allow mobile access to HMI for getting increasing the data capacity while reducing speed latency and maintaining security standards. Moreover, operator HMI actions, controllers, sensors, and remote machine monitoring are also anticipated to upgrade technology performance gains as compared to traditional technologies.

COVID-19 Impact:

The halted operations within manufacturing facilities resulted in a sudden decline of human machine interface market shares during the initial COVID pandemic phases. The governments of major countries imposed heavy restrictions on the movements of raw materials, products, and even the labor force, which resulted in heavy losses faced by major businesses. However, post-pandemic, the market situations have returned to a moderate pace with the resumed processes within production plants. Huge spending has been initiated by business conglomerates to increase production efficiency through technology integration within facilities. The latest HMI is expected to reduce operation costs by replacing traditional indicator lights, push buttons, and selectors for efficient monitoring of the machines.

Human Machine Interface Market Segmentation:

By Product

The product segment is bifurcated into hardware and software. The hardware segment is further sub-segmented into basic HMI, advanced panel-based HMI, and advanced PC-based HMI. This segment is projected to account for the largest share contribution to the human machine interface market statistics during the forecast period. The hardware segment includes devices such as personal computers, field-mounted flat-face panels, printers, and others. Further, the hardware or software HMI applications can range from a physical control panel with indicator lights and colored buttons to an industrial personal computer with a color graphics display. Moreover, HMI software provides an in-built graphic user interface with dedicated controls for input and output. This helps to operate and monitor advanced industrial equipment. Additionally, such software is easily compatible with HMI hardware or mobile devices, regular PCs, and wearables.

By Configuration

The configuration segment is divided into embedded and standalone. The standalone HMI configuration is projected to support the market growth in terms of the largest share contribution. This configuration offers a touchscreen or display panel integrated within equipment with high computing performance and ultra-low power consumption. These equipment are also water and dust resistant which results in reduced costs of maintenance to manufacturing facilities. Moreover, embedded HMI configuration is also anticipated to support the market growth in terms of value. A large number of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) use embedded controls in their production machinery.
