Frost & Sullivan: Brazil Bodes well for the HMI and Industrial PC Market


SAO PAULO, Nov. 7 – Industrial PCs and human machine interface (HMI) represent the next level of industrial automation applications. The deep penetration of these new applications indicates Brazilian companies' eagerness to increase the efficiency of their production processes.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Analysis of the Brazilian HMI and Industrial PC Market, finds that the market earned revenues of $68.3 million in 2011 and estimates this to reach $126.9 million in 2015. The market's growth rate is expected to exceed that of the economy.

"The higher complexity in the manufacturing processes and the greater pressures to reduce waste and costs encourage the adoption of more sophisticated automation applications," said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Alejandro Diaz Lopez. "While industrial PCs are an ideal fit for these needs, the swelling demand for visualization makes a solid case for HMI."

Industrial PCs and HMI also offer compelling benefits such as technology integration capabilities. The flexibility of industrial PCs enables the easy integration of IT and architecture technology systems, allowing companies to better control production lines.

While both markets are growing briskly, there is still some customer apprehension regarding the reliability of these systems, specifically, industrial PC. End users believe that industrial PC system architecture is less reliable than other systems, such as programmable logic computers (PLCs) and HMI systems.

To improve customer awareness about the benefits of industrial PCs and HMIs, participants should invest in marketing campaigns and demonstrate the savings end users can accrue through the use of these products in the production process. This will encourage clients to invest in more sophisticated automation solutions instead of maintaining the traditional standard applications for the assembly line.

"Further, the improvements in the operating systems for industrial PCs will make them more stable and reliable, increasing their market acceptance and boosting sales in the next five years," noted Diaz Lopez.
