Global Intelligent Flow Meter Market Overview

A flow meter is a device or an instrument used to measure linear, non-linear, mass or volumetric flow rate of a liquid or a gas. Flow meter is referred by various names such as flow gauge, flow indicator, liquid meter, depending upon the particular industry; however the function, to measure flow, remains the same. Demand of intelligent flow meters is increasing day by day as they are highly accurate, precise, stable and reliable for flow calibration. Intelligent flow meters are not affected by temperature, viscosity, density and suspended particulates.

Intelligent flow meters are widely used for diagnostic information, along with measurement of data, which will stimulate the growth of intelligent flow meter market globally. Chemical, food & beverages, oil & gas, metals & mining, pulp & paper, pharmaceuticals are the few industries where intelligent flow meter is widely used. Among various industries, there is a high demand of intelligent flow meter in Oil & Gas industry. Magnet flow meter holds the large amount of share of the intelligent flow meter market as it is used for the measurement of dirty water.

Market Size and Forecast

The   intelligent flow meter market, in terms of value, is estimated to be around USD 6 Billion in 2016 and expected to grow rapidly during the forecast period at a CAGR of around 7%. There is high demand of intelligent flow meter market in chemical & wastewater industry and in Oil & Gas industry which will stimulate the growth of intelligent flow meter market.The global intelligent flow meter market is studied for the Asia Pacific (China, Japan, India and rest of Asia Pacific), North America (the U.S., Mexico, and Canada), Europe (the U.K, Germany) and Rest of the World.

Asia Pacific is projected to register the largest market share and is anticipated to grow with a highest CAGR during the forecast period attributed due to rising industrial development and huge demand of measuring meters in Oil & Gas industry. Countries such as China and India are fueling the market of intelligent flow meter to achieve new heights in upcoming future.

Intelligent flow meter market
