The global vibration monitoring market size is projected to be valued at USD 1.5 billion in 2020 to reach USD 2.2 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period. Factors such as the rising trend of remote monitoring through wireless systems, growing awareness toward predictive maintenance, increasing demand from emerging applications such as heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HAVC), and penetration of smart factories in major regions are driving the growth of the vibration monitoring industry.
Embedded Systems accounted for the majority of the global vibration monitoring market share in 2019
The embedded systems segment led the vibration monitoring industry in 2019. Effective and continuous monitoring through embedded systems that are installed directly on the machines allows real-time assessment of the machine condition as well as an optimized maintenance program.
Embedded systems are ideal solutions, being the complete and reliable detection and analysis systems for equipment defects, performance shifts, imbalances, and other anomalies. These systems include sensing, analysis, storage, and alarm capability and offer quick notifications related to vibration shifts. Embedded vibration monitoring systems have a demand from industries such as oil & gas, energy & power, metals & mining, and chemicals wherein many assets used during production are critical as they mostly require continuous monitoring.
