As a result, the flourishing automotive industry eventually creates a scope of opportunity for the machinery health market in this region.
APAC’s Stronghold Position in Industrial Expansion:
The growing industrialization in the APAC region marks a huge demand for several technology deployments to expedite the flow of development in this region. Also, the industrial sector contributes extensively in domestic economic stabilization and growth. Resultantly, several companies are adopting advanced methods and approaches to detect the equipment health which are imperative to every industrial output. Industrial machinery are subjected to misalignment, abrasion, corrosion, and others. Apart from other machinery susceptible to the risk factors, the rotating equipment, largely included in multifarious industries, generate huge demand for such health monitoring aids. As a result, several manufacturers depend on sensor-based monitoring technology to eliminate any future damages and losses.
Automotive Industry Utilizing Most of Equipment Monitoring Technology– The automotive sector constantly adopts newer designs and innovations in the production procedure to generate customer-oriented products. This requires close supervision and analysis to predict the requirement for future maintenance and breakdown to avoid huge losses. Concurrently, as the automotive sector grows in the APAC region, there is a huge necessity for prediction maintenance which subsequently influences the machinery health monitoring market demand. Nearly 30.92 million vehicles were manufactured in India during FY 2019. This is reflective of the need for effective monitoring sensors to detect abnormality related to manufacturing machinery. Besides, China aims to produce one million electric and plug-in hybrid cars by the year 2020, which will also contribute to the growth scopes of the APAC machinery health sensors market. This shows that the constantly growing automotive industry in these countries will generate a huge demand for APAC machinery health sensors market in recent and forthcoming years.
Growing Oil and Gas Industrial Footprint– Complexity and disaster being constant in the oil and gas sector, there is huge reliability on advanced monitoring and safety attributes in this field of work. Minor machinery breakdown can arise the risk of severe financial consequences and environmental risks. Keeping an eye on the possibility of disasters that can be reduced with advance loss management, the oil and gas industry is largely dependent on machinery monitoring sensors. With the rise in automobile sales in APAC in recent years, there is a huge demand for the oil and gas industry in this region. APAC produces nearly 7.9 million barrels per day. China is the leading contributor with 49% share of the total regional output, followed by Indonesia with 12%, India with 11%, and Malaysia with a 9% share. With this huge production statistic, there is a huge necessity for effective safety measurements through condition monitoring of machinery utilized in this sector. Furthermore, gas production is equally rising constantly to meet the hike in demand. APAC’s gas production reached 600 billion cubic meters in 2017. This shows a 200 billion cubic meters increase in productivity during the last decade.
