Mass Flow Controller Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Investment for Space Research – Global government spending on space programs is expected to reach a new high of roughly 103 billion US dollars in 2022. Higher investment will lead to new space projects, which increases the demand for mass flow controller since space research requires highly accurate control of liquids and gases in different systems.
  • Increasing Volume of Wastewater– Globally, 380 billion m3 of municipal wastewater is produced each year. By 2030, wastewater production is predicted to increase by 24%. Wastewater has various chemicals, therefore mass flow controller helps in controlling the pH, and flocculation of this wastewater.
  • Rising Demand for Industrial Automation– It is a quickly evolving instrument, and organizations continue to discover its full utilization. Automation is presently used to some level by at least 67% of businesses globally. Mass flow controllers automate the adjustment in flow rates, thus reducing the influence of human errors on important procedures.


  • High Complexity of the Technology- Mass flow controller technology is complex, necessitating specialized knowledge for effective installation, testing, and servicing. This complexity can slow down adoption and increase reliance on skilled technicians.
  • High competition from other alternative technology
  • Frequent changes in the industry’s standards

Mass Flow Controller Segmentation

Material (Exotic Alloys, Bronze, Stainless Steel, Brass)

The exotic alloys segment is estimated to account for 50% share of the global mass flow controller market in the year 2035. Mass flow controllers are supposed to have high strength so that they can tolerate the high internal pressure created by controlling and containing the pressure of different fluids and gases. All the chemical reactions on the equipment can lead to corrosion which causes the metal breakdown. Therefore, the use of exotic alloys as the core material has becomes increasingly important to prevent corrosion and get efficient results. The common exotic alloys that are used in mass flow controllers are titanium, nickel, and nickel-aluminum, bronze.

Product (Differential Pressure Flow Meter, Thermal Mass Flow Meter, Coriolis Mass Flow Meter)

Mass flow controller market from the thermal mass flow meter segment is expected to garner a significant share of around 40% in the year 2035. The growth of the segment is attributed to the rising manufacturing of chemicals and the rising need for refining petrochemicals. The high accuracy of thermal mass flow meter and high reliability makes them very popular across different end-user industries. In 2021, the overall global refinery capacity for petroleum products was roughly 101 million barrels per day. Nevertheless, global refinery throughput was more than 79 million barrels of oil per day.

Mass Flow Controller Industry- Regional Synopsis

APAC Market Forecast

The mass flow controller market in Asia Pacific is projected to be the largest with a share of about 35% by the end of 2035. The growth of the market can be attributed majorly to the increasing government initiatives for developing new water management technologies. Union Minister of India provided the fund to Kritsnam Technologies to develop the technology. Moreover, the other initiatives, such as Atal Bhujal Yojna a Central Sector Scheme of USD 720 Billion is further expected to drive the demand for flow meter.

North American Market Statistics

The North America mass flow controller market is estimated to have a significant share of about 24% by the end of 2035. The growth of the market can be attributed majorly to the rising use of fuel cells. In 2020, the United States Department of Energy established the Million Mile Fuel Cell Truck Consortium to advance research and development initiatives in order to disseminate the technology throughout the United States highway system. Moreover, owing to these initiatives, the cost of hydrogen fuel cell EVs will reduce and heavy trucks will be able to give over a 500-mile range by 2035.
