The global structural health monitoring market was valued at $1.6 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach $4 billion by 2028, registering a CAGR of 14.7% from 2021 to 2028. Structural health monitoring (SHM) refers to collection and analysis of data collected through a wide array of connected sensors during the service life of a structure or equipment. It is a non-destructive and continuous method of identifying and quantifying the deterioration state of the object to predict the necessity of repair and maintenance.

Over the years, structural health monitoring (SHM) technologies have emerged as an exciting new field within civil engineering. SHM has become an important tool in the design, analysis, and maintenance of modern civil engineering structures and systems. The growth of structural health monitoring market is driven by increased focus on structural health monitoring, obsolete infrastructure in Europe and North America, obsolete aircraft of domestic & international airlines, reduction of inspection costs, and frequent occurrences of natural calamities. In addition, growth in investments in infrastructure and advances in wireless sensor networks create ample opportunities for the global structural health monitoring market share. However, high implementation cost and challenges pertaining to data normalization restrain the structural health monitoring market growth.

Structural health monitoring for civil structures is gaining popularity globally in the field of construction management and maintenance. SHM reduces the inspection costs as well as research time, and enables to better understand the behavior of structures under dynamic loads, seismic protection, in real or near real-time data information. SHM of civil structures ensures better management in post-earthquake scenarios, and support rescue operations. However, the structural monitoring of static and dynamic stress of dams has gained significant attention during the years due to the negative effects of structural responses. In addition, the actual structural responses of dams differ from the initial values computed while designing due to several environmental and other load conditions. These variations are expected to be observed depending on the type of construction, assumptions made in structural modelling, and analysis and differences in proposed design and final structure.

Further, high focus of the governments of different countries toward development and adoption of latest technologies is a major driving factor for the growth in implementation of structural health monitoring systems. For instance, under its Transport and Research and Innovation Monitoring and Information System (TRIMIS) program, the European government conducted COST Action TU1402: Quantifying the Value of Structural Health Monitoring activity. The COST Action TU1402 was active between 2014 and 2019 and was aimed at gaining scientific evidence regarding the high value of SHM as well as its societal and industrial impact for infrastructural management and design. The impact and evidence of the optimal and target use of SHM resulted in reduction of operational expenditure by up to 90% and risk reduction by propelling reliability, robustness, and safety enhancement.

Solution Insights

Based on solution, the market has been categorized into hardware and software & services. The hardware segment dominated the market in terms of revenue in 2017 owing to significant cost of integral elements of SHM systems such as sensors and data acquisition systems. Hardware components are required to be installed in large numbers to cover structures such as buildings, dams, bridges, stadiums, and airframes.

In terms of different types of hardware solutions, sensors are projected to be a more prominent revenue contributor in the market. Advancements in sensor technologies, increasing usage of smart materials, and smart structures with embedded sensors are supplementing the growth of the market.

Technology Insights

By technology, the market can be bifurcated into wired and wireless SHM. The wired segment accounted for a larger share in the market in 2017. Wired systems are widely adopted for continuous monitoring of distinct types of structures as there is no limitation on long-distance data transfer as they provide reliable connectivity. Additionally, wired SHM systems are already being used for assessment worldwide of various structures including buildings, dams, and bridges in different countries.

Moreover, wireless SHM systems are projected to register a CAGR of 18.5% over the forecast period. The segment has emerged as a technology that will significantly influence the field of structural monitoring and infrastructure asset management.

Application Insights

On the basis of application, the SHM market has been divided into buildings & stadiums, bridges & dams, airframes & wind turbines, vessels & platforms, and large machine & equipment. Bridges & dams accounted for over 32.0% of the overall revenue in 2017. In 2014, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), more than 61,000 bridges across the country were structurally deficient, which needed significant monitoring and inspection for maintenance and repair work. Similarly, in other regions, growing number of functionally obsolete and structurally deficient bridges is creating significant demand for structural health monitoring systems for monitoring and inspection of bridges.

Building & stadiums are poised to witness a noteworthy CAGR of 18.1% over the forecast period. Rising number of sporting events such as FIFA World Cup and Olympics are creating demand for infrastructure including stadiums. Furthermore, governments are also promoting the use of these systems as they increase security of the infrastructure.

Regional Insights

The North America market was valued at USD 430 million in 2020. Rapidly aging infrastructure such as buildings, dams, bridges, and tunnels in North America is stirring up the demand for structural health monitoring systems.

According to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), in the U.S., more than 30.0% of structures, including bridges and dams, have surpassed their 50 years of infrastructure design life. Therefore, in order to improve structural lifespan and enhance public safety, installation of these systems is needed. Such factors are anticipated to stoke the growth of the regional market. Increasing use of monitoring systems in the U.S. is playing a vital role in the growth of the market in the region.

Governments in North America and South America are taking initiatives towards adoption of monitoring systems in different applications to ensure public safety. Moreover, expansion in infrastructure facilities in Canada and Brazil are driving the market in these countries.

Furthermore, the Asia Pacific market is anticipated to witness the highest CAGR of 19.2% from 2021 to 2028. Increasing infrastructural construction activities and growing stringency of government regulations in the region are likely to propel the market in the region. Furthermore, some countries such as Indonesia and Japan are prone to earthquakes and thus, SHM systems are in high demand in these regions to enhance public safety.
