Bridge Monitoring Systems

Bridges are critical in many regions; being used over several decades, it is critical to have a system to monitor the health of these bridges and report when and where maintenance operations are needed.  Bridge monitoring system responds to the vibration, deflection, and strain of the main beam under the action of the wind load, and the temperature of the environment and the temperature of the structure are also monitored.

Owing to the increase of extreme climate events due to global climate change, the foundational erosion of old bridges has become increasingly serious, and this has increased demand for corrosion monitoring software for real-time bridge monitoring.  In addition, with rapid advancements in sensor technology, a real-time bridge monitoring system is developed that almost eliminates the need for human inspection.

Advanced Technologies to Aid in Streamlining Bridge Inspection Operations 

Advanced technologies such as data analytics and image processing are expected to provide beneficial opportunities for suppliers in the bridge monitoring system market. Government administrative authorities are gradually becoming hesitant in using conventional bridge monitoring systems due to their heavy reliance on human expertise, making them prone to manual errors.
With rapid advancements in sensor technology, a real-time bridge monitoring system is developed that almost eliminates the need for human inspection.

Bridge Monitoring Systems Market Strategic Issues 

In addition to providing a five-year market forecast, the Bridge Monitoring System Market Research provides detailed quantitative current market data and addresses key strategic issues as follows.

Strategic Issue for Users: Importance for Automation and Standardization

Standardization and automation of the maintenance and repair of the infrastructure through digitization and the use of smart sensors will allow the solutions to be more adaptive and resilient during uncertain times like the COVID-19 pandemic.

Strategic Issue for Suppliers: Innovative User Experience

Suppliers that provide easy-to-use, instinctive software for use with the hardware will have an advantage.  As more users tend to outsource bridge monitoring and inspection activities to system integrators or other service providers, modernization in service will be the key.

Strategic Issue for All Market Participants: Economic Decline Due to COVID-19

The COVID-19 outbreak has caused disruptions to global supply chains and business operations.  While the pandemic did not impact the 2019 demand for bridge monitoring system, the market projections do take into account industry trends with ARC’s best estimates for how the COVID-19 pandemic will impact the bridge monitoring systems market in different facilities.
