Growing demand for natural user interface
The growing need for natural user interface (NUI) technologies in computer systems is driving growth in the surface computing industry. Without the requirement for connected devices, NUI allows people to engage with systems intuitively by touch or by utilizing the thing they are dealing with.
The incorporation of NUI technology into computer systems is an essential element that leads to an increase in demand because of simplified architecture, enhanced performance, and smaller infrastructure. Conventional GUI components like keyboards and mice are being replaced by user-centric technologies, which is propelling the market expansion. High R&D expenditures are creating more effective solutions, which is growing the sector even more. Thereby, driving the market growth over the projected period.
Enhanced user experience
Surface computing offers a more intuitive and interactive way for users to engage with digital content and applications. The touch-based interface and natural gestures improve user experience, making it a compelling choice for various applications. Thus, the enhanced user experience is expected to drive the market growth over the projected period.
Complexity and high cost
Surface computing system development and integration can be challenging and require knowledge of hardware, software, and UI design. For some businesses, especially those with limited technological resources, this complexity might be a hurdle. Furthermore, the development and implementation of surface computing systems can be costly, particularly for large-scale or specialist installations. Adoption may be hampered by high expenses, especially in smaller companies or sectors with limited budgets.
Privacy and security
Surface computing often involves the use of cameras and sensors that capture user interactions. This raises privacy concerns, and businesses must implement robust security measures to protect sensitive data and prevent unauthorized access. Thus, hampering the market growth.
Rising investments in the industry
The increasing investment is expected to offer an attractive opportunity for the development of the market growth over the forecast period. For instance, in April 2022, the creation of next-generation, or NextG, networks that are intelligent, robust, and reliable is the focus of a recent investment of more than $37 million announced by the US National Science Foundation. Resilient and Intelligent next-generation systems, or RINGS for short, is a public-private partnership investment that aims to accelerate research to make the United States more competitive in next-generation networking and computing technologies and to guarantee the security and resilience of next-generation technologies and infrastructure.
To expedite the translation of basic research discoveries into new technologies that have the potential to revolutionize the information technology and telecommunications sectors of the American economy, this public-private collaboration contributes special experience, knowledge, and resources to the research endeavors.
The RINGS initiative is NSF's single biggest endeavor to date in enlisting the cooperation of public and commercial partners for a research program. Partners in the private sector include Apple, Ericsson, Google, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, Qualcomm, Nokia, and VMware. Government collaborators include the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering of the United States Department of Defense.
Growing automotive industry
The growth in the automotive industry is expected to offer an enormous potential for market growth during the forecast period. Surface computing has diverse applications in the field of automotive which includes in-car infotainment systems, heads-up displays, ADAS, touchscreen control and others. Surface computing enhances the overall user experience in the vehicle, making it more user-friendly and engaging. Thus, the growth in the automotive sector directly impacted the demand for surface computing during the study period. For instance, according to the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries, with a rise of 18.3% over the same period in 2022, Australia's total sales for September 2023 were recorded at 110,702 units.
