Need for Machine Monitoring Expanding

machine monitoringMachine condition monitoring is becoming a huge need on the shop floor. But don’t just take our word for it!

Machine monitoring is expected to expand to a $3.4 Billion industry by 2022. The United States is the largest market for it. This stunning estimate is from a December 2017 Study on the Global Machine Condition Monitoring Equipment Market.

“Over the years, the rapid proliferation of machine automation and breakthrough technology improvements in machine capabilities, have created the need for monitoring systems,” the study from Melvin Bright, a market research company, states.

“Avoiding unplanned outages is the first step towards ensuring process optimization for manufacturing plants and facilities…Demand-driven manufacturing is the need of the hour.”

The study states that while only 25% of large manufacturers were requesting machine monitoring 15 years ago, the number is closer to 50% as of December 2017.

Aside from unplanned downtime, there is also a need for monitoring manufacturing assets. More benefits noted are:

  • higher production reliability
  • reduced unplanned downtime
  • higher equipment ROI
  • higher revenues/profits associated with improved product quality
  • reduced risk of manufacturing faults
  • lowered cost of reprocessing

“Diligent tracking of the progress of equipment deterioration also aids in more effective equipment maintenance, repair, and replacement strategies,” the study continues.

“While simultaneously reducing operational damage, outages, lost capacity, and maximizing plant value.”
