The global human machine interface (HMI) market is expected to expand at a steady CAGR of 10.4% from 2013 to 2019 and reach a value of US$5,579.3 million. Human machine interface, or HMI as it is commonly known, is a technology that is used for industrial automation to manage large volumes of data application. A human machine interface is an electronic interface between users and devices. HMIs help reduce human involvement in the manufacturing process and thus improves the productivity and ensures the safety of the operator. HMI is a part of all processing and manufacturing control systems. Human machine interfaces are used to convey real-time data and involve the use of an interface system where data is activated through visual representation.
