The Vibration Monitoring and Analysis industry has tremendous applications given the developments in other mechanical and electro-mechanical industries that subsequently require better testing and condition monitoring systems. Hence, there is a need to develop more advanced vibration monitoring tools that are cost-effective and more efficient, adapting to the changes in these other industries, both generic and specific.
Advances in microelectronics technology, more powerful sensor technology and better control software have driven progress in the vibration monitoring industry as well. With an increase in applications such as structural health monitoring or biomechanical engineering, where vibration monitoring is becoming useful in assessing physical ailments as well, the field is seeing growth.

“Given that all operating machines vibrate, an increase in vibration almost always results in deterioration of running conditions,” says Frost & Sullivan Technical Insights Research Analyst Mahaneeya Raman. “Monitoring vibration levels of machinery provides essential information about the machine’s running condition and the analysis of vibration data helps identify credential causative factors including imbalance, misalignment and bearing defects.”
Ideally, by means of an enterprise asset management system or a computerized maintenance management system, an overall picture of the operations equipment and total plant condition could be derived by integrating this information with other asset system health data. With the extended use of wireless technology and the Internet, online remote monitoring of plant/machine conditions could be done with faster and effective data transmission and control extensions.
“Vibration sensing technology has reached the limits of physics,” says Frost & Sullivan Technical Insights Research Analyst Sivam Sabesan. “While there is room for evolutionary development, again up to a point, the scope for large revolutionary changes is quite small. That is not to say that major advances cannot happen in the near future. However, no hard data is available on any revolutionary change in this technology. The few claims that do arise have either the smell of a scam or are mere hype without any data.”
The basic principle fundamentals of how vibration sensors operate have remained the same over a very long period of time. The same applies to vibration test systems or shaker systems that are used to test equipment and components in varying scales of size, complexity and application. Hence, it is practically impossible to come up with a new method of vibration sensing or implementing vibration test systems.
As a strategic response to the fact that vibration-sensing technology has reached the limits of physics, the industry is working towards making the whole vibration monitoring and analysis process more effective, in terms of cost and productivity, to suit various generic and specific applications. With evolution being the keyword, there have been numerous innovations in this sector that are reflected in the research service.
