Fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) are the fourth largest sector in the Indian economy.

FMCG Consumption sector-wise

The retail market for FMCG is estimated to reach USD 1.1 trillion by 2021 due to the following reasons.

  • 18% GST applicable on Household and Personal Care products.
  • Rates of Food and Healthcare products is reduced by 0 to 5% and 12-18% respectively.

Why is Maintenance required?

01. The production capacity of the plants is generally 1000 items per hour.

02. A variety of products are manufactured under a single umbrella. (Soaps, detergents, perfumes, toiletries)

03. FMCG industries choose predictive maintenance and data analytics to increase their bottom line and competitive advantage.

04. To determine the equipment response and schedule the work load/ batch-processing accordingly.

05. The health care sector utilizes Predictive Maintenance to improvise customer satisfaction.

06. To maintain equipment history and carry out research to forecast outcomes based on operating parameters, assembly chains and schedule production targets accordingly.

Equipment used in FMCG

  • Packaging machinery powered with motors
  • Bottle loading, filling and capping machines
  • Chillers in Soap Manufacturing Plants.
  • Cutting machines/Slicers
  • Stamping Press, Conveyors, Elevators, etc.
Predictive Maintenance

Case Studies


Prediction of scrubber pump motor breakdown saves 25 Thousand in FMCG company.


Complete vibration monitoring system predicts bearing-failure; saves expeller from severe damage.


vEdge on gearbox of feeder conveyer of food processing plant saved 1.5 hours & production loss of 1.2 Tons
