Industrial PC generally relate to the personal computers, which are usually employed for industrial processes. They are primarily employed for data acquisition and process control purposes. They have higher dependability & accuracy standards and are generally more costly than the consumer electronics. They are specially designed to operate under extreme circumstances including high temperatures, shocks, moisture, dust and vibrations. Industrial PCs are generally deployed for process & machine automation and can simultaneously run human-computer interface (HCI) applications successfully. They offer flexible input & output display, storage, processing & communication thus operates in the high fluctuation temperature, humidity and moisture. They also provide reliable performance, long term availability for faster processing and compatibility. Industrial PCs are generally required for data acquisition, logistics systems, and image processing & networking due to its efficiency, speed and reliability properties for automating the system. They are basically manufactured in an enclosed-casing with the industrial-grade components for protecting the contents from dust & particulate intrusion. In comparison to the commercial & personal computers, industrial PCs consume very lesser power, more efficient and have longer operational life. As a result, they find wide-ranging applications across various industries, for instance healthcare, aerospace & defense, automotive, energy & power, chemical, oil & gas, and semiconductor & electronics.
As per analysis, “Global Industrial PC Market Status (2015-2019) and Forecast (2020-2024) by Region, Product Type & End-Use” some of the leading organizations that are presently working in the global industrial PC market include B&R Automation, Anovo, Contec, Siemens, Advantech, EVOC, AAEON, Adlinktech, Axiomteck and others. Renowned companies are constantly integrating various advanced technologies with a wide variety of industrial PCs for instance rack mount, din rail PC, panel, box and others to provide newer products like touchscreen industrial PCs, industrial tablet PCs, and forklift tablets to the worldwide market thus boosting the growth prospects for niche market.
Rise in need for resource optimization in manufacturing industries, followed by increase in adoption of industrial IoT, growth in improvements in information technology (IT) infrastructure, rise in emphasis on regulatory compliances, growth in industrialization, extensive research & development (R&D) activities and strict regulatory compliance are prime factors, which are responsible for growth of global industrial PC market. Besides, high initial cost is a major restraining factor for market. Moreover, development of high-end industrial PCs is a key trend for market.
Based on regional analysis, the Europe and North-America regions dominate the global industrial PC market because of increase in automation across industries and widespread adoption of solid-state drives across the region. The Asia-Pacific region is anticipated to exhibit substantial growth rate owing to high investments in the energy sector and rise in outsourcing of manufacturing processes to China and India over the forecast period. It is predicted that global industrial PC market will be reached at rapid pace due to increase in understanding of resource utilization in manufacturing industries, large number of major players investing in the industrial PCs and steady shift from traditional manufacturing to digitized manufacturing during the forecast period.
