Global flow meters market is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 5% during the forecast period, on account of increasing demand for flow meters from oil & gas and water & wastewater industries. A flow meter is a device used for the measurement of volumetric, mass, and linear and non-linear flow rate of a gas or fluid. Different types of flow meters are used for the measurement of various parameters of a fluid as it flows through a pipe. Flow is measured by measuring the liquid speed over a certain area. The performance of a flow meter relies on aspects such as density, pressure, viscosity, and temperature of liquids.

Based on type, global flow meters market has been categorized into magnetic, coriolis, ultrasonic, differential pressure, positive displacement, turbine, vortex and others. Of these types, ultrasonic segment is anticipated to witness healthy growth during the forecast period, backed by increasing demand from oil & gas, water & wastewater, food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, and other end-use industries, as they are reliable and can handle high pressure and temperature. Moreover, ultrasonic flow meters are inexpensive to maintain and easy to use, as they do not use moving parts. These flow meters do not hamper the flow and therefore can be applied to corrosive and abrasive liquids.

From a geographical standpoint, global flow meters market has been categorized into North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, South America and the Middle East & Africa. The European flow meters market accounted for a significant share of the global market in 2018. Europe is home to several manufacturers and product innovators of flow rate measurement solutions and services. However, the Asia-Pacific market for flow meters is expected to register the highest growth in coming years, owing to rapid urbanization in emerging countries, which is stimulating the need for adequate power generation and efficient water & wastewater management.

Key players in global flow meters market are looking to expand their regions of operations by forming mergers and acquiring regional players from the fragmented section of the market. The companies in the market are also focused on investing in research & development activities to introduce new and cost-effective materials to keep up with the changing consumer needs.
