Drivers - Industrial PC market

Growing demand for automation and technological advancements in industries set to drive the Industrial PC Market

There has been significant growth in industrial PC market owing to the increased adoption for automation and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies in industries. Industrial PCs assist in providing the platform to run automation software for monitoring and controlling the processes in real time applications.

Many companies and startups are focusing on adoption of IoT technology. For instance, in June 2019, Indian IoT startup SwitchOn had raised $1 million seed funding from Pi Ventures. In April 2019, Altizon Systems Pvt. Ltd had raised $7 million in series A funding from investors TVS Motor Company Ltd.

Rising demand for energy efficient manufacturing operations

The manufacturing companies are majorly focusing on increasing their production capacities in order to reduce costs and strengthen their competitive position by increasing their production efficiency through adoption of industrial PC, thereby driving the market.

In industries such as metals and mining, oil and gas, and others where the profit margins are comparatively lower than other industries such as automotive and food and beverages, among others, it is critical to optimize their resources and reduce waste. This is a flaw in the production process which result in huge losses, causing manufacturers in compensating the flawed product with a new one.

Owing to this, the manufacturing companies are actively increasing their focus towards adoption of industrial PCs in order to automate their manufacturing processes to enhance productivity. These PCs also assist the companies in improving accuracy, and minimizing operation costs, thereby achieving superior quality, uniformity, and safety. Therefore, increasing demand for energy-efficient manufacturing operations is anticipated to drive the demand for industrial PCs market.

Challenges - Industrial PC market

High Initial Investment

Implementation of industrial PCs in factories is a part of automation process. Adoption of automation machines can be one of the most cost intensive process for an industry.
