Human Machine Interface (HMI), also known as human machine interface, user interface or user interface, is the medium for interaction and information exchange between the system and the user. It mainly realizes the internal form of information and human acceptability. Conversion between forms.


At present, the industrial sector is at the beginning of the fourth industrial revolution. The application of man-machine interface in the industrial field has replaced traditional industrial control technology with intelligent control technology, and industrial intelligence has become the development direction of global manufacturing.


According to the 2017 Deloitte survey data, North American smart factory penetration rate exceeds 54%, leading the world. Second, developed countries such as the United Kingdom, Germany, and France, including Western Europe, also have relatively high intelligence manufacturing. The degree of intelligence in factories in mainland China is relatively low, and the penetration rate of smart manufacturing is about 25%, which is obviously behind the developed countries in the West.


After the high market growth in 2017, due to the global macroeconomic downturn and the decline of electronics and machine tool industry, the growth of the global automation market in 2018 has slowed significantly. According to the latest human-machine interface report from Sigmaintell (2018-2019 Global HMI & Display Value Chain Market Research Report), the global human-machine interface demand scale was about 6.32 million in 2018, an increase of about 9.1% year-on-year. . Demand for traditional printing machinery, machine tools, food and beverage equipment, etc. has shrunk, and demand for semiconductor equipment, lithium batteries, liquid crystal equipment, construction machinery, and materials has increased significantly. Sigmaintell predicts that the global human-machine interface market growth will encounter great resistance in 2019.
