According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Industrial PC Market is accounted for $5.0 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $8.4 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 9.0% during the forecast period. An industrial personal computer is a computing platform designed to withstand challenging environmental factors such as moisture, severe dust, temperature swings, and humidity. These industrial personal computers cost more, but they also feature better power efficiency, dependability, and efficiency, as well as a longer lifespan. Due to their ability to operate within a temperature range of —40°C and +80°C, industrial personal computers are in high demand due to their efficient and consistent performance under difficult conditions. Manufacturing companies are rapidly using industrial PCs as automation tools to handle a variety of factory and industrial operations, including machine automation and next-generation autonomous robotics. Industrial PCs are very popular because of their cutting-edge features, such as fanless cooling systems, cableless networking that minimises moving components, and water and dust intrusion protection. Market participants are concentrating on creating strong, high-performance computers for industrial IoT.

According to Eurostat, industrial production in the EU increased by 0.4% in January 2022 compared to the previous month with total production levels 2.5% higher than in February 2020, the month immediately before the COVID-19 crisis.

Market Dynamics:


Increased awareness of resource optimisation in manufacturing companies

In order to save costs and boost efficiency while maintaining or improving competition, manufacturing businesses are concentrating on combining their production capacities. It is crucial to maximise resources and cut down on waste because sectors like oil, gas, and metals and mining have lower profit margins than those in the automotive and food and beverage industries. In discrete industries, a small flaw in the production process could cause enormous losses, forcing producers to recall their products or offer compensation by replacing the flawed ones. As a result, manufacturing firms are implementing industrial PCs to automate their production procedures in order to increase productivity, improve accuracy, cut down on operating expenses, and reach the highest standards of accuracy, consistency, and safety. The usage of industrial PCs is anticipated to increase with the growing awareness of resource optimisation in manufacturing companies.


Data privacy and cybersecurity concerns

With the increase in digitization, the security system has become a major concern because it is essential to the complete operation of any firm. The market for industrial PCs is being held back by increasing data privacy and security concerns. Currently, the majority of Industrial Control Systems (ICS) are integrated with software applications that are accessible commercially and with IPCs that have internet access, which offers many benefits but also increases system vulnerability. The prevalence of sophisticated malware that exploits ICS vulnerabilities poses a serious danger to industrial organisations and raises user and supplier concerns about cybersecurity. In order to provide solutions tailored to individual industries and applications, IPC manufacturers must address this issue through product services and cooperation with security professionals.


Increasing awareness of IT infrastructure

The two most important aspects of any manufacturing facility for efficient operations are information accessibility and e-communication. High-quality IT networks and infrastructure can address manufacturing issues like monitoring, resolution, economic performance assessment, self-adaptation, interpretation, and implementation, while inadequate ones can adversely affect the general performance and productivity of manufacturing facilities. The industrial PC industry is likely to benefit significantly from manufacturing organisations' increased focus on investing in IT infrastructure.


Risks associated with integration of IPC

Industrial PCs are used in a variety of industries, including oil and gas, chemical, energy and power, and food and beverage, to connect data, machines, and people in real-time to control manufacturing operations and to optimise resources and costs. However, despite these benefits, integrating IPCs poses a risk. These industrial PCs, for instance, are connected to the internet and used in a variety of industries to manage and operate vital infrastructure, including power grids, manufacturing facilities, water treatment plants, etc. Hence, a cyberattack may take advantage of the weakness and raise the hazard.

Covid-19 Impact:

The industrial personal computer (PC) market expanded gradually in 2019, but the coronavirus outbreak had a negative impact on the global market. There was a significant decrease in product output as a result of numerous manufacturing facilities being temporarily closed. Governments from a number of nations granted permission to resume their production facilities, but only to a limited extent, after evaluating the pandemic situation. The security and safety of the employees were of the utmost importance; thus, safety measures included wearing personal protective equipment and keeping a social distance where necessary. Because of their ability to remotely monitor industrial divisions and processes and by utilising IoT, 4G/5G connectivity, and cloud computing technologies, businesses are progressively implementing them, which boosts sales of industrial personal computers (PCs). A variety of sectors, including energy and power, oil and gas, and automotive, have witnessed increased demand for these computers as a result of the rapid adoption of such technology.

The Panel IPC segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The panel IPC segment is expected to have the largest market share over the projection period, as compact chassis, high performance, more flexibility, greater safety control, and user-friendly touchscreens are all characteristics of panel IPCs. These IPCs have robust processors that enable them to have high computational power, and they have many expansion slots for add-on boards. Furthermore, demanding applications can be quickly deployed using panel industrial PCs in a variety of industries. In addition, the market for industrial PCs is anticipated to be driven by significant infrastructure expenditures in the energy and power (E&P) sector, supportive government policies for the expansion of manufacturing firms, and an acceleration of industrialization.

The Process Industry segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

Due to the growing demand for affordable products, which is driving manufacturing costs and enabling businesses to expand their presence in various regions, the process industry segment is predicted to grow profitably throughout the course of the forecast period. IoT facilitates the generation and gathering of large volumes of manufacturing data, which demands hardware like industrial PCs for data acquisition and process control applications. For instance, Exxon Mobil (US) is implementing IoT projects as part of its digital initiative to improve the efficiency of its refineries, assist output, and detect methane emissions from its operations.

Region with largest share:

Owing to the increasing adoption of cutting-edge technologies in various industrial sectors across the region, particularly in the United States, the North American market is anticipated to register a largest share in terms of revenue during the projected period. In order to improve their manufacturing processes and boost efficiency, industrial companies in the region are focusing on incorporating cutting-edge technologies. Additionally, the region's high demand for industrial PCs is being fueled by growing expenditures in robotics and industrial automation. Moreover, automotive and other discrete industries, such as aerospace and defence, medical devices, and electronics, are among the fastest-growing end-use sectors for industrial PCs, boosting the revenue growth of the market in this region.

Region with highest CAGR:

Due to its rapid industrialization and steady increase in industrial activity, Asia Pacific is predicted to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period. This region's manufacturing industry is expanding more rapidly than other regions. Additionally, increased investments in energy infrastructure for sustainable growth and embracing government policies for foreign direct investment (FDI) are factors that drive international companies to enter the Asia Pacific industrial PC market.
