A Human-Machine Interface (HMI) is a user interface that creates a medium to connect humans with a device, system, or machine for exchanging information among users & devices. Owing to the mounting inclination toward automation & digitalization, the need for HMI is booming substantially across India.

HMI devices are used most extensively in industrial applications for several purposes like tracking production time/trends/tags, visually displaying information, monitoring machine inputs & outputs, etc. Besides, these systems have multiple forms ranging from built-in screens & tablets to computer monitors, etc., and all aim to provide insights on the mechanical progress & performance.

According to MarkNtel Advisors, the India Human Machine Interface (HMI) Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 8.50% during the forecast period, i.e., 2022-27. The market is driven principally by the mounting demand for Human Machine Interface (HMI) devices across various industries like automotive, mining, oil & gas, and others to efficiently monitor the production plants. Moreover, with the integration of logical software into HMI devices, the overall productivity of the processing manufacturing industries have spurred in recent years, mainly due to precise monitoring.

Recently, Rockwell Automation, in collaboration with CNBC TV 18 & Money Control, hosted "India Inc. on the Move," with the theme "Innovate Your Future." It underscored the adoption of Industrial IoT & decoding the potential of Smart manufacturing to help India become the Global Manufacturing Hub.

Covid-19 Severely Impacted the India Human Machine Interface (HMI) Market

  • The outbreak of the Covid-19 had a decelerating effect on most industries across the country, where the India Human Machine Interface (HMI) Market was no exception.
  • Due to the sudden imposition of lockdowns & stringent movement restrictions, the market underwent substantial disruptions & financial loss. 
  • The limitations on transportation & logistics further hampered the supply chain, as India imports most of the raw materials required for HMI from China.
  • With this, the market faced delays & project cancellations and a severe decline in production & sales.
  • Consequently, the sales of prominent electronic companies were also affected and observed fluctuations in the prices.
  • However, with the upliftment of trade restrictions & recommencement of production plants, the market is projected to regain its momentum gradually and generate lucrative growth opportunities for the market leaders in the forecast period.

Market Segmentation

Based on the End Users, the India Human Machine Interface (HMI) Market segments into:

  • Process Industry
  • Discrete Industry
    • Automotive
    • Aerospace & Defense
    • Packaging
    • Medical Devices
    • Semi-Conductors & Electronics

Of them all, the Automotive sector is anticipated to hold a significant market share in the coming years since India is undergoing a massive technological shift, owing to the increasing number of product launches like advanced infotainment systems by Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). As a result, the sales of vehicles equipped with HMI devices & ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System) are surging substantially due to the mounting need for convenience, safety & security, & comfort.

Hardware to Attain the Highest Share of the India Human Machine Interface (HMI) Market

On the other hand, based on Offering, Hardware is projected to acquire the highest market share in the coming years, primarily due to the extensive application of HMI devices across discrete end-users like automotive, aerospace & defense, packaging, medical devices, etc. The Hardware segment further bifurcates into:

  • Basic HMI
  • Advanced PC-Based HMI
