The global predictive maintenance market size was valued at USD 3.18 billion in 2018 and is expected to register a CAGR of 37.9% over the forecast period. Equipment manufacturers, plant owners, and operators in the energy industry face the common challenge to keep their machinery and other assets working efficiently. Reducing the cost of maintenance, equipment/plant downtime, time-sensitive repairs are the key challenges that are highly faced by the plant owners during the operation. These solutions help the plant owners to schedule a maintenance program prior to any likelihood of failures.
Considering the aggressive time constraints for various industrial products and services, it is important to identify the causes of failures or potential faults before they have a chance to occur. Evolving technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT), cloud storage, and big data analytics are enabling more industrial equipment and assembly robots to provide condition-based data, making fault detection easier and practical. Information collected from this equipment can be turned into actionable and meaningful insights by using these solutions. This is expected to accelerate the demand for these solutions across the globe.
Companies are deploying their maintenance services more effectively and are improving equipment up-time by proactively detecting potential issues by using the available data within the plant. The faults or failures of the equipment or plant can be detected easily by effectively using the available structural data. The structural data pointers include year of production, model, make, working hours, warranty details along with unstructured data mainly repair logs and maintenance history. This information enables organizations to predict if or when the equipment will fail so that the repair works can be carried out before the failure occurs.
Predictive maintenance can be applied to all industry verticals where machines produce significant amounts of data and require maintenance. Industries namely automotive, aerospace, healthcare, manufacturing, process industries like chemicals, food and beverage, oil and gas can be transformed with the help of these solutions. Additionally, apart from the advantages such as reducing downtime, eliminating the causes of failure and controlling repair costs, these solutions also employ non-intrusive testing techniques for evaluating and computing asset performance trends.
However, lack of availability of skilled workforce with adequate knowledge of operating the predictive maintenance solution is a major challenge faced by the organizations. Moreover, for proper functioning and understanding of the tool, a trained person is required.

The growing need for maintenance of manufacturing equipment such as industrial robots, machinery, elevators, and pumps for reducing the overall downtime is driving the adoption of predictive maintenance solutions and services in the manufacturing segment. Moreover, the rising automation in the manufacturing sector coupled with Industry 4.0 is also anticipated to drive the demand for these solutions to protect the high-end equipment from damages.
Energy and utilities segment is also a major contributor to global market growth. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the rising need for enhancing equipment up-time by predicting potential issues prior to their occurrence. Moreover, the increasing need to predict the likelihood of failure of aged components in the energy and utility infrastructure is supporting the segment growth. Additionally, increasing penetration of power consumption analytics applications is also contributing significantly in making the energy and utilities one of the leading segments.
On-premise segment is estimated to hold a major market share over the forecast period, attributed to data privacy concerns associated with cloud infrastructure. Moreover, deployment and operations of predictive maintenance solution over the on-premise platform has been the traditional method opted by many organizations across the globe. Since most of the companies have servers and data centers for running their internal and external software solutions effectively, the on-premise mode is preferred significantly.
Cloud-based solutions segment is projected to exhibit the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to faster data processing, efficient resource utilization, direct IT control, and cost-effectiveness offered by cloud models. Moreover, remote maintenance feature can also be utilized by the deployment of the solutions on the cloud platform. Additionally, leading vendors operating in the global market are offering cloud-based solutions for effectively automating the equipment maintenance process and gain maximum profits associated to it.
Asia Pacific is expected witness the fastest CAGR during the forecast period.
