New ARC Advisory Group research on the operator panels market reveals that the driving force for this market is the implementation and adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) in the industrial sector. Operator panels provide increasing functionality, such as remote maintenance, direct connection to central servers, the Cloud, line control, programming, design, etc. Multi-touch panels are the latest state-of-the-art panels that help suppliers bring real value to operators/customers by offering reasonable multi-touch applications.
“The main requirements for operator panels are visualization and connectivity, which are necessary to enable a flexible yet profitable production. The majority of operator panel suppliers are offering touch-panels that are ready for Industry 4.0. Leading companies typically do not rely just on their installed base but also position themselves as technology leaders. Technology leaders can increase market share while avoiding price competition by adopting technological trends early and working closely with key customers to keep ahead of the growing number of followers,” according to Siddhartha Maiti, Analyst at ARC Advisory Group and key author of ARC’s Operator Panels Global Market Research report.
