Report Digest

With the recent and constant advancements in technologies, most industrial areas are witnessing a rise in adoption of state-of-the-art machineries and components that need periodic maintenance. Plant shutdowns due to oil-related failures such as insufficient lubrication, bearing defects, chipped gear teeth, and shaft misalignment are a common scenario in most manufacturing sites today. In order to avoid such mishaps, end users are turning to useful lubricant analysis tools such as oil condition monitoring systems.

Though they seem to be a relatively smaller component in the entire manufacturing plant, oil condition monitoring systems are indispensable in most industrial applications. Especially in areas where extreme and harsh weather conditions are common, the need for high-performance oil condition monitoring systems is inevitable in order to avoid unplanned shutdowns. This, along with advances in smart analytics technologies, is expected to drive the growth of the oil condition monitoring market in the coming years.

Predictive Maintenance Technologies in Turbine Oil Condition Monitoring to Boost Growth

Turbine oil testing is one of the most critical processes followed in most industries where the analysis about oxidation, viscosity, flashpoint, and demulsibility among others is carried out. While turbines are ubiquitous on a wide range of industrial applications and processes where extremely high pressures are applied, the demand for oil condition monitoring systems is significantly high.

Furthermore, taking into consideration that turbines are highly vulnerable to damages due to friction and pressures, oil condition monitoring systems are commonly employed to ensure high lifespan of turbines in the entire system.

Companies often resort to high-quality lubricants in these turbines and it further leads to the increasing use of oil condition monitoring in these processes in order to avoid system failures. This will continue to be the leading factor contributing to the positive growth of the oil condition monitoring market across the world.

High Prices of Oil Condition Monitoring Systems Restrict Sales

Oil condition monitoring systems are a part of condition-based maintenance equipment, which are characterised with heavy investments in various measuring tools. This does not only add to the price of oil condition monitoring, but it also reflects in a significantly high cost of implementation. High manufacturing costs make oil condition monitoring systems very expensive, and this limits the range of end users in this space.

Furthermore, condition-based maintenance equipment introduces a completely innovative maintenance technique and this makes oil condition monitoring systems difficult to integrate with existing systems in any manufacturing facility. This further amplifies the cost of implementation, and thereby, creates sales-related challenges for manufacturers in the oil condition monitoring market.

Transportation Sector to Open a New Window of Opportunities

Increasing growth of the transportation and logistics sector is expected to pave way for development and innovation in the oil condition monitoring space. Various areas in the transportation sector include automotive, aerospace, locomotive engines, marine transport, and heavy vehicles, which mainly contribute to the growth of the oil condition monitoring market.

Oil condition monitoring plays an important role in the preventive maintenance mechanism in all these types of transportation systems, mainly to avoid critical engine failures. Positive growth of the automotive industry is expected to give rise to new trends, triggering manufacturers to introduce real-time oil condition monitoring sensors in next-generation vehicles in the coming years.

Presence of Global Leaders Make North America Emerges the Most Lucrative Market
