This industry research report identifies FLSmidth, Raytek, Thermoteknix, and ThyssenKrupp as the key vendors in the global kiln shell scanner market. This report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by end-user (minerals industry, cement industry, and pulp and paper industry) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global kiln shell scanner market

Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the global kiln shell scanner market will grow steadily and post a CAGR of about 3% by 2020. This market research analysis identifies the increased use of wireless technology for rotary kiln shell scanners as one of the primary growth factors for this market. Conventional data collection methods involve manual inspections with handheld thermometers and pyrometers and are highly inefficient and potentially dangerous. As a result, end-users have started preferring the use of wireless devices that can be placed in close proximity and collect accurate real-time data. Online permanent systems provide continuous coverage and data of rotary kilns for production processes. Additionally, wireless technologies also offer advantages such as convenience of operations, increased speed of industrial data transmissions, untethered operations, easy access to hazardous areas, and an overall reduction in operational costs.

One of the newest additions to rotary kiln shell scanner technology is the cloud-enabled software, which enables an interactive platform for end-users with multiple options and constant real-time input. Consolidated into meaningful information, this can help detect defects in shell lining and facilitates better decision making. It also allows rapid data sharing across different locations which help end-users to collaborate easily with kiln manufacturers and effectively schedule repairs. Their ease of operation and numerous benefits have induced several manufacturers to offer cloud-based solutions with their kiln shell systems.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market is characterized by the presence of several established international vendors who generate revenue through both direct and indirect sales channels. Most of these rotary kiln manufacturers have in-house development and design of kiln shell scanner software and hardware components and are solely responsible for the integration of the systems, testing, and commercializing these products into the market. Vendors mainly focus on geographical expansion, increasing production capacities, and upselling products by upgrading the existing ones. Competition among kiln manufacturers is based on product features, price, customized solutions, and services. Owing to the presence of several international and local players, the vendor competition is likely to intensify in the coming years.

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • FLSmidth
  • Raytek
  • Thermoteknix
  • ThyssenKrupp

The other prominent vendors in the market are Ametek Land Instruments, Changzhou Baoyi Mech & Elec Instrument, E4U Group, FLIR Systems, Grayess, HGH, Honeywell, LAND Instruments, Siemens, Syn-Fab, Toshniwal Industries, and ZKG.

Segmentation by end-user and analysis of the kiln shell scanner market

  • Minerals industry
  • Cement industry
  • Pulp and paper industry

Accounting for almost 57% of the total share of the market, the minerals industry dominated the kiln thermal imaging scanner systems market during 2015. Continuous steel and aluminum plant investments in APAC nations such as India, Indonesia, and Australia will increase the adoption of kiln shell scanner systems. Additionally, the rising preferences for predictive maintenance, the need to minimize kiln downtime, and the rising concerns over safety standards will augment the growth prospects for this market in the coming years.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the kiln shell scanner market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

This market study estimates that APAC will account for about 45% of the global kiln shell scanner market by 2020 and dominate this market during the forecast period. The region is the global leader in automotive production and the exponential growth and investments in the automotive industry will increase the demand for steel, aluminum, copper, and nickel. This in turn, will lead to the rise in adoption of modern technologies such as kiln shell scanners. Additionally, government initiatives such as Make in India and Made in China 2025 will also propel this market’s growth in the region.
