The industrial PC (IPC) market grew rapidly in 2014, faster than both the operator terminal and programmable logic controller markets. According to the latest figures from the free IHS Quarterly IPC Market Index the market posted strong double-digit growth in 2014. This comes despite declines in sales in EMEA and Asia Pacific in the third and fourth quarters. However these declines were more than offset by a strong start to the year in both regions.
This marks the second consecutive year the IPC market has grown strongly. In 2013, it grew by over 11 percent; recovering strongly from a slight decline in 2012, when the market struggled to overcome tough economic headwinds.
