Monitoring Type – Segment Analysis
The Machine Condition Monitoring Market is segmented into Vibration monitoring, thermography, oil analysis, corrosion monitoring, ultrasound emission, radiography, radiography, motor current analysis, electrical monitoring, performance monitoring, and laser interferometry among others by monitoring type. By monitoring type, thermography held the major share accounting to $640.96m in 2019. Thermography operates on the principle of sensing infrared radiations emitted by any object above the Absolute Zero temperature. Using an infrared detector, it is possible to convert these radiations into electrical signals which can then be displayed on a monitor as a grey level image or colour image, representing the complete surface temperature map of the object. Thermography has various implementations in a wide range of verticals including medical, military, process monitoring, electrical or mechanical engineering, energy evaluations, R&D and so on, thereby boosting the market growth during he forecast period 2020 – 2025.
Application – Segment Analysis
The market is segmented by application into automotive, food & beverage, oil & gas, aerospace & defense, mining & metal, water & wastewater, paper & packaging, marine, others. The market was dominated by oil and gas accounting to 23% in 2019. Oil and gas plants are equipped with some of the most complex machinery in industrial production. In addition to this complexity, if a failure occurs the financial and environmental consequences born are extremely serious. Attributed to these reasons, managing oil and gas operations with high levels of efficiency, safety, and profitability is becoming exponentially more difficult. Due to the penetration of industrial automation, condition monitoring has been introduced in the oil refineries and is a crucial element in successful modern-day oil and gas plant and remote asset management. Remote condition monitoring is being utilized in the petrochemical industry and is offering numerous benefits including energy efficiency for upstream oil and gas facilities, reduced maintenance costs, materials degradation monitoring, improved field communications and mining automation, thereby elevating the market growth in the coming years.
Geography – Segment Analysis
Global Machine Condition Monitoring Market is dominated by North America with a share of 37% in 2019. The significant growth in the implementation of automation technologies in the factories and penetration of the smart factories is certainly contributing to the growth of the market. In June 2019, Schneider Electric has launched smart factory in the U.S. demonstrating quantifiable, real-time benefits of innovative ecostruxure solutions. This factory majorly showcases the IIoT integration strategies with End Users, Machine Builders, and Partners which has resulted in 20% reduction in mean time to repair of the machinery. Adding to this, the significant rise in the manufacturing industries, transportation sectors, and others with the adoption of automation are majorly contributing to the growth of the Machine Condition Monitoring market during the forecast period 2020-2025. The increasing expansions of the manufacturing industries in Canada are majorly contributing to the growth rate of the market. In June 2018, Reko International a parts supplier has expanded it’s automation facility in Canada with an investment of $5.7M. Therefore the rise in the expansion of production plants with automation is analyzed to impact on the growth rate of the market.
Drivers – Machine Condition Monitoring Market
High Adoption of the cloud technologies
Cloud technologies are deployed for in-depth machine monitoring. The cloud based solutions allow the user to organize the maintenance report for the industrial machinery in a simple way.
