Emergence of Smart Factories to Facilitate Growth of the Global Industrial Panel PC Through 2021

Renewable energy

The global industrial panel PC market was valued at over USD 850 billion in 2016 and is expected to surpass USD 1,126 billion by 2021, says Technavio.

Technavio has announced its latest market research report on the global industrial panel PC market, under its automation portfolio. This market analysis discusses the major drivers and key emerging trends and offers an analysis of key vendors like AEON, Advantech, Beckhoff Automation, Kontron, and Siemens.

According to Bharath Kanniappan, a lead analyst for automation research at Technavio, “Panel PC manufacturers are combating the problem of overheating by implementing a fan-less system for dissipation of heat through heat sink technology. The introduction of heat sink system also delivers a noiseless system and runs more productive and energy-efficient applications.”

Also, the rising process complexity, especially in manufacturing sectors, has increased the demand for more reliable industrial panel PCs for enhanced performance and uninterrupted service. Thus, the frequent advances in technology due to continuous innovations have resulted in the faster replacement of industrial panel PCs.

Emergence of IoT and smart factory

As the manufacturing and industrial sectors are moving toward complete automation, all latest industrial panel PCs are likely to be integrated with wireless hardware. This enables real-time access to information for various industrial applications. Furthermore, the evolving competitive dynamics within industries are continuously prompting manufacturers to achieve greater productivity through the implementation of advanced technology such as IIoT and cloud-based computing in various industrial applications.

Development of high-end complex industrial panel PCs

As of recently, industrial PCs are being configured with secure mass storage and a redundant array of independent disks (RAID) systems to enable automatic data recovery without replacing the hard disk. For instance, Siemens SIMATIC IPC series provides the most advanced industrial panel PCs that address the complex automation application used in the hostile industrial environment.  Developments such as this, which involves the integration of latest technology with high-end features, is anticipated to drive further growth of the global industrial panel PC market.
