Water & wastewater treatment in Flow Meter segment is growing at a CAGR of 6.8% during the forecast period 2021-2026. In Wastewater treatment plants, Flow Meters are used to measure treated and untreated sewage, chemicals and raw water. Population growth, economic development and urbanization are the factors that generate more volume of wastewater. As the demand for wastewater treatment increases owing to environmental regulations, many countries are investing lump sum amount on setting up new wastewater treatment plants.
Flow Meter Market Segment Analysis - by Geography
APAC dominated the Flow Meter Market by a market share of more than 34% in 2020, owing to increasing water and wastewater management plants. Increasing population and water scarcity issues are the primary factors that lead to the rise of growing water management plants, thereby boosting the demand of Flow Meters. According to Water Environment Partnership in Asia, improvement in water environment can only be done by providing necessary information and knowledge for the enactment of water environment governance. Furthermore, According to Israel’s Ministry of Strategic Affairs & Public Diplomacy, nearly 90% of wastewater in Israel is recycled and thus making Israel, the world leader in water recycling in 2020.
Flow Meter Market Drivers
Growing adoption of Flow Meter for mining and mineral processing applications
As mineral processing technology is rapidly evolving, mining companies are adopting Flow Meter to measure process water, process slurry flow and heavy media flow with certain liners to decrease abrasion. The Flow Meter is extremely essential to fulfill environmental protection regulations as it measures the volume of pulp going into the dump. In December 2019, Emerson Electric Co introduced Emerson’s Rosemount MS Slurry Sensor with the Rosemount 8782 Slurry Transmitter is a slurry Flow Meter, specially designed for high noise and slurry applications in mining as well as pulp & paper industries. Slurry Flow Meter helps in product quality improvement, reduction in raw material cost and minimization of waste.
Growing adoption of Flow Meter for irrigation applications
Adoptions of Flow Meters are gaining popularity in irrigational applications. Compared to other flowmeters, Flow Meter provides greater enhanced accuracy and repeatability throughout their operation life with uncertainty of _+ 1% reading. As there is no moving part, they do not suffer from problems such as wear and tear, minimizing maintenance and require no upstream strainers to filter out sediments. Certain linings such Ceramic linings are chosen for further protection against abrasive flows. Flow Meters helps in minimizing the piping of the meters which in turn reduce the time and cost of installation. In May 2020 McCrometer Inc, an international leader in flowmeter manufacturing, announced the expanded line size of existing products i.e. Wafer Style Dura Mag and Ultra Mag Flow Meters. Wafer Style Dura Mag is designed with 2- and 3-inch line sizes and is ideal for drip irrigation, surface water and other agricultural flow applications. Hence these factors drive the market growth.
Flow Meter Market Challenges
Incapability to measure non-conductive fluids
Though Flow Meter has lot of diverse benefits but its inability to measure non-conductive fluids is the major restraining factor for the growth of the market. It can only measure the liquid flow rate of conductive medium and cannot measure the flow rate of non conductive medium such as hydrocarbons for heat treatment. Moreover installation and commissioning of Flow Meter is much more complex than other flow meters. Hence these factors decelerate the market growth during the forecast period.
Flow Meter Market Landscape
Partnership, Acquisitions, Collaboration, technology launches and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the Flow Meter Market. The top companies in the Flow Meter Market are Emerson Electric Co, Endress + Hausan AG, ABB Ltd, Krohne Messtechnik GmbH, Badge Meter Inc, General Electric Co, McCrometer Inc, Honeywell International Inc, Toshiba Corporation and Siemens AG.
- In March 2021, Krohne Messtechnik GmbH, a leader in global manufacturer of flowmeters, announced the launch of new AF-E400 Ultra-Compact Flow Meter, specially designed for utilities and industrial automation. It is perfect choice for applications with conductive fluids in tight spaces.
- In August 2020, McCrometer Inc, global leader in manufacturing flowmeters, announced the launch of telemetry offering for their existing Flow Meters to fulfill the increasing demand for Flow Meters with telemetry services.
