Published:  Nov 2022 Report Code: KSI061610192 Pages: 128

The intelligent flow meters market is anticipated to increase at a CAGR of 4.96%, from US$6.344 billion in 2020 to US$8.905 billion by 2027.

Intelligent flow meters are electronic devices used primarily to measure flow rates of linear, non-linear, volumetric fluids such as liquids or gases as they are transported through pipelines. These devices are used in a range of industries, including but not limited to chemicals, oil & gas, pharmaceuticals, pulp & paper, and wastewater treatment. Additionally, this sort of equipment can operate without interruptions because it is unaffected by variables including density, suspended particulate matter, temperature, and viscosity. Both contact and non-contact methods of measurement are possible. However, the market's expansion is thought to be constrained by the substantial upfront cost of valve projects.

Increased automation to drive the growth of intelligent flow metres market

The necessity for incorporating improved fluid low calibration, reducing unpredictability in operations, and the increased awareness of overall process optimization through automation leading to the digitalization of operations requirements in the processing sector and an increase in nuclear power plants are the main factors driving the market for intelligent flow meters. The market for intelligent flow meters has more potential for growth as a result of rising infrastructure expenditure in developing nations and the quickening rise of processing industries. Along with rising infrastructure investment, the growing acceptance of accurate, precise, and reliable fluid calibration across a range of industrial and process sectors is also anticipated to propel market expansion to a new level.

By Industry Vertical

By industry vertical, the Intelligent Flow Meters market can be segmented as Chemicals, Oil and Gas, Pharmaceuticals, Water and Wastewater, Paper and Pulp, and Others. The oil and gas segment holds a considerable market share.

By Geography

Geographically, the Intelligent Flow Meters market is segmented as North America, South America, Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific. North America holds a major share of the market. However, it is expected that the Asia Pacific area will have the fastest-growing industry as the rising economies of the region, particularly those in India and China, are anticipated to improve their water and wastewater management.

Key Developments:

  • Sept 2022: The OpreXTM Magnetic Flowmeter CA Series was introduced by Yokogawa Electric Corporation. The OpreX Field Instruments line of products now includes this item. This new line of goods includes capacitance-type magnetic flowmeters, which can measure the flow of conductive fluids through a measurement tube without the fluids coming into touch with the device's electrodes. This series includes novel capabilities that enhance user-friendliness, maintainability, and operational efficiency in addition to the non-wetted electrode architecture. With features to increase operational effectiveness and maintainability, OpreXTM Magnetic Flowmeter CA Series is released in a wide range of markets. This will increase plant operational efficiency by lowering the number of personnel hours needed for customer instrument checks. Flow measurement for fluids with low electrical conductivity, high-density slurry (solids), and insulators that are prone to sticking to measurement tubes can be done.
  • April 2022: Krohne introduced a brand-new addition to the clamp-on flowmeters from the OPTISONIC 6300 series. The new portable clamp-on OPTISONIC 6300 P matches the capability of stationary the OPTISONIC 6300. The new OPTISONIC 6300 P has an inbuilt data logger and a battery-powered field converter with full measuring functions, including the ability to calculate thermal energy. The OPTISONIC 6300 P mobile app, which is free and available in the Google Play Store, allows users to monitor and analyze all measurement data while also considerably improving signal processing and measuring signals. Through a safe wireless Bluetooth® connection or USB cable, the software makes it simple to configure and commission the clamp-on flowmeter.

Product Offerings:

  • ULTRA Vortexor Model VRX10A flowmeter: Smart Ultrasonic Vortex Flowmeter ULTRA Vortexor Model VRX10A by Azbil Corporation detects vortex creation by detecting a phase difference in ultrasonic waves utilizing two sets of ultrasonic wave sensors on the detector's surface. It is ideal for situations where high levels of liquid flow rate precision are required. The ULTRA Vortexor Smart Ultrasonic Vortex Flowmeter is garnering interest as an excellent replacement for traditional differential pressure flowmeters due to its great sensitivity and dependability. Features of the device include vortex detection with high sensitivity, dual sensor architecture, and ultrasonic wave sensing (the use of multiple sensors increases the sensitivity of vortex detection).
  • AquaTransTM AT600 Panametrics Ultrasonic Flow Meter: AquaTransTM AT600 Panametrics Ultrasonic Flow Meter by CIMTEC Automation has several applications. A full ultrasonic system used for measuring potable water, wastewater, sewage, discharge water, treated water, cooling and heating water, irrigation water, and other industrial fluids is the AquaTrans AT600 flowmeter. Economical, non-intrusive flow measurement, incredibly easy setup and installation, suitability for a variety of pipe sizes and materials, suitability for lined pipes, outputs for velocity, volumetric, and totalized flow, clamp-on installations, and permanent solid couplant for clamp-on applications are just a few of the features and advantages.
