The global automotive human machine interface (HMI) market size was valued at USD 23 billion in 2023. The market is projected to grow from USD 24.73 billion in 2024 to USD 66.28 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 13.1% during the forecast period.

Automotive Human Machine Interface (HMI) refers to the technology and design elements allowing interaction and communications between humans and vehicles. It consists of various interface systems through which users can control and access information in an automobile. The primary purpose of the HMI system is to offer a seamless user experience, ensuring that drivers can safely and efficiently operate the vehicle's features and functions.

An important part of the human machine interface system is the display system. It functions as a communication medium for information and entertainment. ADAS systems collect data from various sensors and display it through central display systems to give drivers better control of their vehicles. In addition, a well-designed automotive HMI can reduce driver distraction, enable safer interaction with vehicle functions, minimize the risk of accidents, and enable personalization options. Users can configure settings, views, and controls according to their preferences and needs.

Growing technological advancements in AI, machine learning, and increasing focus on autonomous vehicles will drive the automotive Human Machine Interface market growth. The COVID-19 pandemic severely impacted global auto sales, especially in the passenger car sector, which resulted in collapse of the global economy. The pandemic had created uncertainty in the industry and caused panic across the industrial value chain. The key industry players had shut down their manufacturing units to avoid spreading the virus, thereby negatively impacting the automotive human machine market.

Automotive Human Machine Interface (HMI) Market Trends

Increasing Adoption of AR Heads-Up Display, Multimodal Interfaces, and Biometric Systems to be Prominent Market Trend

Augmented Reality (AR) heads-up displays are becoming increasingly important in the automotive HMI systems. These displays project virtual information into a real-world view. The technology increases driver awareness by displaying important information, such as navigation instructions, speed limits, and collision warnings directly in the driver's field of vision. It also provides a more immersive and intuitive driving experience, reducing the need for drivers to look away from the road.

Automotive HMIs are increasingly using multimodal interfaces that combine different input methods for user interaction. This approach allows users to choose the most convenient and appropriate input method for each situation, whether touchscreen, voice commands, gestures, or physical controls. Multimodal interfaces increase user flexibility and adaptability to different driving conditions, and expand users’ preferences by providing multiple interaction options.

Biometric systems are becoming increasingly important in the market due to increased demand for security and personalized user experience. Biometric features, such as fingerprint recognition, facial recognition, and iris scanning can authenticate drivers and provide personalized settings based on drivers’ preferences. These systems can also monitor drivers, ensuring alertness and improving road safety. Introducing such advanced technologies is one of the major trends in the market.

Automotive Human Machine Interface (HMI) Market Growth Factors

Ability of Human Machine Interface to Provide Impeccable Driver Safety Will Favor Market Growth

An advanced automotive Human Machine Interface platform, combined with in-car sensors, provides the driver with a real-time Augmented Reality experience through a Head-Up Display (HUD). The HUD helps the driver visualize the potential movement of other vehicles and provides information, such as upcoming cornering strategies and speed limit changes. Introducing various features and driving safety notifications on the screen further allows users and vehicle owners to be informed of vehicle ecosystem and surroundings of vehicles.

The rising demand for various vehicle integrated features, rising infotainment application solutions are increasing the demand for advance HMI systems in vehicles. The integration of HMI system further increases driver and vehicle safety by allowing the driver to focus on the road without additional dashboard displays. Thus, additional safety features and their demand in vehicles will spur the global market growth.

Ability to Increase Value Propositions for Automotive Manufacturers Will Boost Market Growth

Human Machine Interfaces benefit the end-user and allow automotive manufacturers to gain a distinct advantage in an increasingly competitive marketplace. Consumers' preference for advanced car safety will enable automakers to leverage innovative technologies to add more features in HMIs and further strengthen the players' positions in the market.

The users and car enthusiasts are likely to enjoy these additional vehicle features which is further expected to drive the demand for HMI systems in vehicles. Moreover, the flexibility and adaptability of the automotive HMI platform will also ensure cost-cutting for manufacturers over the long term by avoiding redundant software development costs. They can also make a profit by using spares for existing components, sensors, and hardware.


Lack of Cyber Security In HMI Systems May Hinder Market Growth

Although the automotive HMI system has experienced minimal cybersecurity issues, its ease of connecting to the internet increases risk of hacking. A flawed HMI may lead to losing confidential data by allowing hackers to crash systems. For instance, researchers from Fluoroacetate hacked the Tesla Model 3 car via their onboard browser. They used a JIT bug in the browser renderer process to execute code on the car's firmware and show a message on its display system. Fluoroacetate is a highly successful hacker team of security researchers. Thus, the risk of hacking the system may hamper the growth of the market.

Automotive Human Machine Interface (HMI) Market Segmentation Analysis

By Operation Type Analysis

Use of Voice Recognition to Increase in HMIs Owing to Its Precise Operation

Based on operation type, the market is segmented into gesture, voice, and manual.

The voice recognition system segment holds the largest market share. This system plays a significant role in enhancing the driver's experience, safety, and convenience. The voice recognition system utilizes speech recognition technology to interpret spoken commands and interact with various onboard systems and functions. In the automotive human machine interface, the voice recognition system uses hands-free phone calls, media playback controls, voice-activated navigations, climate control, text messaging & emails, voice-activated virtual assistants, access vehicle information, and natural language processing. With these features, the voice recognition system can contribute to safer driving by reducing the need for manual interaction with controls and displays. It allows drivers to concentrate on the road while accessing various vehicle functions.

The manual segment has the second-largest share in this market. This segment consists of steering wheel controls, physical buttons, and knobs. The majority of vehicles have buttons and switches integrated into the steering wheel. These controls typically include audio volume adjustment, phone call handling, cruise control activation, and access to driver assistance system settings. Physical buttons and knobs are often used for functions, such as climate control, media tuning, and media playback controls. Their tactical feedback allows the driver to operate these functions without taking their eyes off the road. This factor is expected to drive the manual segment growth over the forecast period. Lesser installation and maintenance costs of the manual systems as compared to gesture and voice assistance systems is another factor driving the segment’s growth.
