The industrial PC market was valued at USD 3.30 Billion in 2016 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% to reach USD 4.73 Billion by 2022. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing penetration of IoT across manufacturing industries, high R&D investments by the manufacturing companies to promote the adoption of industrial PCs, rising demand for energy-efficient manufacturing operations, and growing emphasis on regulatory compliances.

Panel industrial PCs held the largest size of the industrial PC market in 2016. The growth of the market for panel industrial PCs can be attributed to their distinct features such as compact chassis, high-performance platform, enhanced flexibility, better safety control, and user-friendly touchscreens. Panel industrial PCs are the most commonly used industrial PCs in the process and discrete industries for data acquisition and process control operations.

Solid-state is robust data storage medium for handling shocks and vibrations in manufacturing plants. It provides high-speed data access. Apart from providing consistent and faster input/output times, solid-state data storage medium offers similar levels of endurance and data integrity as other electronic devices; hence, require lesser cooling and power than its electromechanical equivalents.

The market for capacitive touchscreen technology-based IPCs is likely to grow at a high rate between 2016 and 2022. This market growth can be attributed to the advantages of capacitive touchscreen technology-based IPCs over resistive touchscreen technology-based IPCs such as faster response time, higher accuracy, and no requirement for periodic calibrations, among others.

The direct sales channel is the most preferred sales channel in the industrial PC market; this channel is likely to continue its dominance in the market between 2016 and 2022. The direct sales channels offer various advantages to the industrial PC manufacturers; they cater to the customization requirements of the end-user industries and eliminate resellers’ markup and the costs and risks associated with carrying large finished goods inventories. Due to these factors, the market for direct sales channels is expected to grow at a high rate during the forecast period.

The growing demand for downtime, both logistically and commercially; increasing environmental concerns such as reduction of CO2 emissions; curtailment of fossil fuels usage; and fluctuating oil prices are reshaping the production landscape of the oil and gas industry. The oil and gas companies are focusing on incorporating new technologies in their production processes to reduce costs, while maintaining ecological balance. Due to the aforementioned factors, the industrial PC market for the oil and gas is likely to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period.

Industrial PC Market

North America held the largest share of the market in 2016. The industrial manufacturers in North America focus on adopting advanced technologies to enhance their production processes and optimize output. The growing demand for improved process flexibility and enhanced efficiency, comprehensive integration of quality and regulatory requirements, harmonized production processes for optimum supply-chain management, and constant pressure of reducing maintenance and operation costs in the discrete industries are boosting the adoption of industrial PCs in this region. Moreover, several major players are increasingly investing in the industrial PC market in North America, thereby propelling the growth of the market in this region.

Industrial PCs aid in the real-time planning, controlling, and monitoring of operations to increase productivity and efficiency of the manufacturing plants. However, these PCs come with an additional cost, owing to their capability to provide greater visibility pertaining to the operations and supply and distribution activities in manufacturing plants as well as to deliver better informed decisions based on end-user demand patterns. These high initial costs associated with the implementation of industrial PCs are likely to restrain the market growth during the forecast period. In addition, the requirement of industrial PCs is specific, in terms of industry as well as application. The implementation of industrial PCs incurs high costs, depending on the production bases as well as the nature of processes to be monitored.

The major players operating in the industrial PC market include Advantech Co., Ltd. (Taiwan), Beckhoff Automation GmbH & Co., KG (Germany), General Electric Co. (U.S.). Kontron AG (Germany), Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (Japan), OMRON Corporation(Japan), Panasonic Corporation (Japan), Rockwell Automation, Inc. (U.S.), Schneider Electric (France), and Siemens AG (Germany). The key market players focus on new product launches and developments, acquisitions, and collaborations to enhance their product offerings and expand their businesses.
