Global Machine Condition Monitoring Market - 2021-2028
Machine Condition Monitoring Market Overview
The machine condition monitoring market size was worth US$ XX billion in 2020 and is estimated to reach US$ XX billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of XX % during the forecast period (2021-2028).
Machine condition monitoring is used to check the condition of machine, improve equipment efficiency and reduce shutdowns. It monitors important parameters of machines such as pressure and temperature and checks the probability of failure to provide scheduled and prevents consequential damages. It is gaining importance in numerous industries such as manufacturing, steelmaking, food, robotics and packaging. The IoT has made it possible to monitor the machine's condition without being physically present during up- or downtimes. IoT and web-based condition monitoring tools increase the production equipment efficiency throughout the life cycle of a machine.
The machine condition monitoring also helps a company meet federal and industry standards such as ASME, ANSI, API, and INPO. It also includes requirements imposed by the Department of Energy for specific industries and helps with certifications for quality and safety as requirements per OSHA.
Machine Condition Monitoring Market Dynamics
The global machine condition monitoring market growth is driven by introduction to IoT and web-based condition monitoring, use of wireless communication technology and in order to avoid losses incorporated from downtime.
Introduction to IoT and web-based condition monitoring
The demand for the machine condition monitoring market is expected to boost with the introduction to IoT platforms in machine condition monitoring. The IOT based condition monitoring offers following advantages: reduced implementation costs, integration with other management systems using API and continuous updates and 24/7 monitoring. In the era of Industry 4.0, manufacturers seek higher productivity of their equipment and selection for smart factory scenarios.
Various companies have adopted condition monitoring system to optimize their production and eliminate unwanted down-time. For example, Kaeser Kompressoren, one of the world's foremost suppliers of compressed air systems, uses SAP Leonardo Internet of Things for Sigma Smart Air Service to provide insights into asset health using the SAP Predictive Maintenance and Service solution. Also, the company combined IoT sensors with SAP HANA in the compressors for more efficient and effective operations.
Hirotec Group was incorporating high losses from unplanned downtime. The company paired an IoT platform with HPE Edgeline systems to prevent critical systems failures like its exhaust system inspection lines. The platform also provides historical data analysis to understand production facility performance and find ways to drive improvements.
High installation cost and lack of skilled professionals
The machine condition monitoring market is impacted by high installation cost and lack of trained professionals to analyze the data. Skilled professionals are needed to analyze downtime in a machine. The fast resolving of the data analysis results in minimal losses; however, if the data is not handled correctly will result in high losses.
Also, accessibility to the cloud and automated solutions for machine condition monitoring in remote areas is challenging. Many operators rely on their experiences to assess the condition of machines, which is not always a reliable option. Moreover, operators do not want to adapt the way of maintaining machines' performance due to the complexity of production systems, including multiple assets, thereby hindering market growth.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
Due to the pandemic, stakeholders across the machine condition monitoring industry have seen a notable impact as all the production work, factories and other activities were closed. The market suffered a decline in 2020 due to reduced demand in construction, electronics, automotive and other related sectors. The production was hindered by halts and supply chain disruption globally. After the pandemic, the governments still imposed various restrictions such as working with half workforce and fewer operating hours.
On the other hand, after the pandemic, companies are expected to shift towards machine condition monitoring to maximum productivity by installing cloud-based condition monitoring systems and recover the lost time and profits. Also, the market is expected with full-plant connectivity empowered by the internet of things to collect directly from networked machines and equipment and thus eliminating human presence.
Machine Condition Monitoring Market Segment Analysis
By technique, the machine condition monitoring market is broadly classified into oil analysis, vibration analysis, thermography, corrosion monitoring and others.
The vibration analysis technique market is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2021-2028)
The vibration analysis technique is expected to hold the largest market for the machine condition monitoring market in the forecast due to its capability to detect issues like bearing failures, imbalance, mechanical looseness, resonance and natural frequencies, misalignment, electrical motor faults, bent shaft and even cavitation. Hence saving production costs, providing scheduled maintenance repairs, longer life for equipment and preventing downtime cost. According to the Industry analysis, vibration warnings can provide three months of lead time before an actual failure occurs.
The market has observed significant developments in the vibration analysis field. In 2019, SDT introduced a new SDT340, together with UAS4.0, a cloud-connected condition monitoring solution to detect, trend and analyze ultrasound vibration parameters for better asset health. SPM Instrument launched a new MEMS type sensor Airius, a range of wireless vibration sensors for remote monitoring of industrial equipment with digital output, measuring triaxial vibration and temperature. Also, the company has received the order from Holmen Paper Hallsta for a total of 154 sensors to upgrade Hallsta's PM12 paper machine, providing the machine's online monitoring system.
