The Global Industrial PC Market Size is expected to reach USD 11.83 Billion by 2032, at a CAGR of 9.63% during the forecast period 2022 to 2032.


The industrial PC computing system is built to function in challenging circumstances like high-temperature swings, high humidity, moisture, and abrasive particles. In comparison to desktop PCs, industrial PCs present an interactive user experience and are used for both personal and professional purposes regarding computing, storage, and connectivity. In terms of dependability, compatibility, diversification possibilities, and future supply, industrial PCs provide distinct advantages over consumer PCs. Process control and/or data collection are the primary applications for industrial PCs. In a few instances, a distributed processing environment will use an industrial PC merely as a front end to another control computer.


In general, industrial PCs are much more expensive than office-style computers of comparable price and performance. The majority of industrial PC systems use single-board computers and backplanes. Industrial PCs are usually more expensive than consumer electronics while maintaining higher standards for reliability and precision. When compared to reduced instruction sets like ARM, they frequently use more complex instruction sets like x86. Industrial PCs have low power requirements because they are operated on nickel-cadmium or nickel metal hydride batteries or alternative forms of energy such as wind or solar energy. Industrial PCs have a wide range of applications, including automated manufacturing, aviation, aerospace, transportation management, solar power, and wind turbines.

Driving Factors

The growing popularity of IoT, big data, and machine learning (ML) in several industries, including manufacturing, oil & gas, automotive, and the food and beverage industry, are expected to be key drivers of the development of the global industrial PC market. There is a major shift in data as well as its value across IT operational effectiveness. Industry 4.0, which is an era of change and development, is creating enormous demand for computing systems that are flexible in their specific functions and workload capabilities. A prime illustration of such demands is the integration of IoT, which is connected to machines. As a result, growing demand from different verticals for energy-efficient manufacturing techniques drives the expansion of the industrial PC market.


Industrial PCs are also used present-day as frameworks for local or edge-level workload convergence as well as individualized workload encapsulation. As a result, due to their high efficiency and low power requirements, industrial PCs have become increasingly popular recently in applications such as solar power and wind turbines, aerospace, transportation management, and industrial automation. In addition, rising demand for industrial PCs from various end-use industries prompts manufacturers to develop and introduce advanced PCs in the market.


Industrial PC sales are anticipated to witness significant growth as a result of manufacturing companies investing continually in their IT infrastructures to improve their productivity. Manufacturers can utilize industrial PCs to track and analyze their operations in real-time, tackle problems rapidly, and evaluate profitability. Governments from throughout the globe have initiated measures that foster the utilization of cutting-edge technologies for production. This is fueling the growth of the industrial PC market.


Restraining Factors        

However, Industrial PC setup costs are especially high, as are the costs of upkeep and setup. The high costs associated with setting up industrial PCs are extremely high for most organizations, especially Small and Medium-Sized (SME) businesses. Furthermore, these PCs have the potential for security breaches and hacking opportunities, so hackers are encouraged to investigate vulnerabilities in a variety of industrial software and systems as a result of the increasing virtualization of manufacturing companies. As a result of these factors, the industrial PC market is expected to be restrained.
