Flow meter is used in fuel cell systems and PV solar cell production to control the reaction among various liquids and gases in process chambers while manufacturing. Also, the flow meter helps to restrain fuel leakage inside the fuel cell stacks and control the fuel cell humidification applications in the market. The rising government initiatives and funding activities to accelerate renewable energy projects will add an advantage for the market expansion.

In the first half of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the market progression. Due to a drop in consumer demand, supply chain disruptions, and international trade restrictions, several end-use industries, including semiconductors, oil & gas, paper & pulp, and chemicals, suspended production for a limited time. The impact was amplified by the drop in oil & gas prices, large supply-demand disparity, and fluctuating price and rising cost of raw materials in the market. During the pandemic, however, enterprises in healthcare, pharmaceutical, and food & beverage market have a considerable advantage in the continuous process manufacture and monitoring of key items.

Increasing demand for differential flow meter in natural gas measurement application will spur the industry growth

The differential flow segment held 25% of the flow meter market share in 2020 and will witness 6% growth rate through 2027. The differential flow meter is ideal for use in the oil & gas market, particularly in natural gas measurement applications. It monitors volumetric flow rather than mass flow, making it ideal for oil & gas measurement in the market. In January 2021, Superior Sensor Technology announced the launch of ND Series, a new differential pressure sensor for various industrial applications, which supports pressure ranges from 62.5Pa to 345 mBar/5psi. 

Rising government initiatives to accelerate protection and safety in the oil & gas industry will propel the industry expansion

The oil & gas application accounted for more than 31% of revenue share in 2020 and is estimated to attain a CAGR of 5.6% by 2027 owing to the rising government initiatives to surge protection and safety regarding environmental issues such as air and water quality. For instance, The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) amended natural gas new source performance standards (NSPS) in September 2020, adopting a Clean Air Act (CAA) approach in which the EPA monitors the relevant pollutant that causes or contributes significantly to harmful air pollution before issuing NSPS for that pollutant.
