NEW YORK, Nov. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- "Machine condition monitoring market to exhibit a significant growth potential between 2016 and 2022"The machine condition monitoring market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.0% between 2016 and 2022 and is likely to be valued at USD 3.07 billion by 2022. The key driving factors for the growth of the machine condition monitoring market are the increasing use of wireless communication technology, growth in the HVAC systems market, rising trend of smart factory or Industry 4.0, and transition from preventive to predictive maintenance. However, the major restraining factors for the growth of this market are unpredictable maintenance schedules and additional expenses incurred in retrofitting the existing systems. "Market for motor current signature analysis (MCSA) expected to grow at the highest rate during forecast period"The market for MCSA is expected to grow at a high CAGR between 2016 and 2022. The common reasons for motor failures include bearing failure, overloading, normal insulation deterioration, unbalanced or incorrect voltage, misalignment/vibration, and poor maintenance practices; MCSA helps to monitor the above mentioned parameters, thereby reducing motor failures and energy consumption. "Oil and gas to hold the largest share of the overall machine condition monitoring market in 2016"The oil and gas industry is expected to hold the largest share of the global machine condition monitoring market in 2016. The oil and gas industries use extremely complex and expensive equipment such as boilers, pumps, generators, and piping network for their operations. The equipment consumes a lot of power and generates an equally large amount of heat. Even a minor fault in the equipment can result into an increase in power consumption and may even trigger the release of powerful gases, or lead to an explosion, which is why, predictive maintenance technologies are essential in these industries.
