About Industrial Thin-Client Platform

Analysts forecast the Global Industrial Thin-Client Platform Market to grow at a CAGR of 5.77% during the period 2017-2021

Thin-client platform is a device that is based on client-server architecture and can be used as a virtual desktop to control and monitor the processes in the facility. This device provides increased flexibility, agility, and improved operational efficiency in addition to its low cost and energy optimization advantages. Thin-client platform is a device that is variably used to control and monitor the processes since it does not require any hardware component and can work efficiently without any storage component. It contains only flash memory that stores the data temporarily and performs all the computation and data storage at back-end servers. Compared with other devices such as personal computers, thin-client is invariably a compact lightweight device that additionally provides remote access to the end-users.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Advantech, American Industrial Systems, ASUS, DevonIT, FUJITSU, and MiTAC

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is additional features in thin-client platform. Initially, thin-client platform was a device that could only extract the applications, files, or data that is run on another computer. The back-end server was providing the information to the user thin-client. But, now there are many new advances added to enhance the workability. Big manufacturers of thin-clients, such as HP and Dell, are increasingly coming up with more sophisticated and advanced technologies in the existing thin-client devices to make them compete with traditional PCs. New advances such as high processing speed, cloud integration, and high-definition graphics have improved the working of thin-client platforms. High processing speed and high-definition graphics not only enhanced the end-user experience by introducing features such as 3D graphics input and VoIP but also improved the flexibility and agility of the network.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is reduced total cost of ownership. Thin-client platforms are increasingly used across all the end-user industries in all regions. These platforms vary from traditional PCs in many ways. For instance, PCs have hardware components and memory to store the data and run the functions, whereas the thin-client platforms do not have associated hardware components and memory to store the data; the data is processed and stored at the back-end server. With the installation of thin-clients, the total operational cost is reduced due to advantages such as low upfront cost and additional benefits of minimal maintenance over the life, rapid installation, easy upgrades, and functioning that does not require any kind of specialized engineering.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is high competition from thick-client platform and industrial PCs. The thin-client platform is facing stiff competition from other devices such as industrial PCs, notebooks, and other mobile devices. Industrial PC is a device that is designed to perform multiple tasks, unlike thin-clients that can perform a specific set of tasks to enhance productivity. The new generation PCs have advanced characteristics as they are based on open embedded operating system and provide advantages of PCs as well as operator panels. They enhance the processes and can provide real-time monitoring. Similarly, the BYOD concept has further challenged the deployment of the thin-client platform. Since this concept is well absorbed into the industries of developed countries such as Europe and the US, the notebooks and other devices that have extended capability of virtualization, mobility, and can be used for multitasking are taking on the thin-clients. Since this concept is also spreading in the developing countries, it has become a major concern for thin-client platform manufacturers.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
