PC Market: Overview
An industrial PC is a PC-based computing platform for
industrial applications. Industrial PCs are high-performance computing
solutions manufactured to withstand extreme temperature, high humidity, and other
severe environmental conditions. The increasing R&D investments across
manufacturing industries, growing demand for energy-efficient manufacturing
operations, and increasing emphasis on regulatory compliances. The growing
popularity of automation is one of the main reasons that will drive industrial
PC market growth. The rising penetration of IoT across all the industries and
vast investments in R&D by big manufacturing companies will upsurge the
adoption rate of Industrial PCs over the forecast period. The increasing
government support to the adoption of automation tools in the industrial sector
could be a vital driver for the industrial PC market, as it will allow the
industry sector in emerging countries to adopt industrial PC systems in an
efficient pricing structure. Global industrial trends, digitization, and
automation will additionally push the demand.
For instance, Jan 23, 2019, Giada, a provider of embedded PCs, embedded
motherboards, server, and storage appliances launch its latest industrial PC,
the ISC-261. The ISC-261 joins the AS20 in Giada’s family of Industrial PCs and
industrial embedded motherboards as an industrial control PC, or sturdy option
for demanding retail and (outdoor) digital signage.
PC Market: Type Insights
Based on the type, the industrial
PC market is segmented into Panel Industrial PC, Rack Mount IPC, Box IPC,
Embedded Box IPC, Embedded Panel IPC, and DIN Rail PC. Panel Industrial PC is
projected to grow at the highest rate during the projected period. Due to their
distinct features like compact chassis, high-performance platform, enhanced
flexibility, better safety control, and user-friendly touchscreens. Also,
rising manufacturing operations in countries like India, China and others
projected to increase the market for panel industrial PC. Panel industrial PCs
are the foremost usually used industrial PCs in the process and discrete
industries for data acquisition and process control operations.
PC Market: End-User Industry
On the basis of the end-user
industry, the industrial PC market is categorized as the process industry and
discrete industry. Process industry holds the largest market share of the
entire industrial PC during the forecast period. Process industry includes
Chemical, Pharmaceutical, Energy & Power, and Others industries whereas
Discrete industries are Automotive, Aerospace and Defense, Medical Devices,
Semiconductor, and Electronics industry. Due to an increase in the adoption of
advanced technologies such as IoT, Automation, machine learning and others for
simplifying the complex problems in various process industries increase the
demand. Also, in the discrete industries, a slight flaw in the production
process may result in massive losses, causing makers to either recall their
manufactured products or reimburse by replacing the flawed product with a new
one. Due to this, the manufacturing companies are keenly focusing on adopting
industrial PCs to automate their processes to boost productivity, improve
accuracy, and reduce operating costs. Hence, the increasing demand for
energy-efficient manufacturing operations is projected to fuel the demand for
industrial PCs during the forecast period.
PC Market: Sales Channel Insights
On the basis of the sales channel,
the industrial PC market is bifurcated into Direct Sales and Indirect Sales.
Direct sales channel dominates the industrial PC market and projected to lead
the market over the forecast period 2019-2025. The direct sales channel is the
most preferred sales channel due to various advantages they offer to
industries, removes the reseller’s markup cost and cater customization
requirements according to the end-user.
PC Market: Data Storage Medium Insights
On the basis of the data storage
medium, the industrial PC market is segmented into Rotating and Solid State.
Solid State data storage segment leads the industrial PC market owing to fast
data processing, low power consumption, high durability, and noise-free
operation benefit. Solid-state is a strong data storage medium for handling
shocks and vibrations in manufacturing plants. Apart from this solid state
offers similar levels of durability and data integrity as other electronic
devices, henceforth, require slighter cooling and power than its
electromechanical equivalents. Rotating drives offer a reliable yet economical
option for certain applications requiring the highest capacities.
PC Market: Touchscreen Technology Insights
On the basis of the touchscreen
technology, the industrial PC market is segmented into Resistive, Capacitive,
and Others. Capacitive touchscreen technology-based IPCs segment is likely to
grow at a high rate due to the availability of multi-touch technology, and
processing rate is faster as compared to others. Resistive touchscreen
technology is buoyed by stability, usability, and low cost. Resistive screens
are mostly used in manufacturing, ATMs and kiosks, and medical devices.
PC Market: Regional Insights
