Summary Methodology

Mass Flow Controller Market size is anticipated to grow at a fast rate to 2025 owing to demand for low flow rate controlling devices for precise measurements. The rising focus on microtechnology in sectors, such as science & engineering, has highlighted the emphasis on the measurement of extremely low mass flow rates. Developments in the laboratory & biomedical research sector that requires gas flow measurement under controlled conditions will favor the mass flow controller market growth. The high level of accuracy and stability offered by these controllers is boosting their demand from the food & beverage, oil & gas, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries.

The demand for these controllers in the semiconductor industry for processes, such as plasma etching and chemical vapor deposition, will fuel the mass flow controller market growth. The significance of flow control in the semiconductor equipment manufacturing process is paramount to the repeatability, capability, and manufacturing of integrated circuits. These controllers use an integrated control valve to control and measure the flow. Improvements in diagnostics, calibrations, and digital communication protocols have enhanced the capabilities of these controllers, stressing their demand in the semiconductor industry. The versatile & reliable performance of these controllers fundamental to semiconductor process tools will support the market growth.

The increasing implementation of these controllers in oil & gas and petrochemical industries for the measurement of gas flow is supporting the high demand in the mass flow controller market. Pressure, temperature, and analytical devices play a key role in gas measurement, stressing the importance of these controllers in the oil & gas industry. Modern-day performance chemicals are highly sophisticated and engineered, fueling the demand for these controllers in the petrochemical industry. The growing demand for pressure & thermal controllers in these industry verticals will favor the market growth. Several regional regulations for the oil & gas industry for reducing greenhouse gas and carbon emissions will support the market growth.

The sudden variation in the downstream or upstream pressure that can cause flow rate transient in these controllers will hinder the mass flow controller market growth. Also, with the change in pressure, the gas density changes, affecting the heat capacity. Moreover, there is a change in the properties of electronic components as they age, causing a shift in the valve response and flow measurement. However, manufacturers trying to tune the controller valve response to quickly react to the pressure surge will boost the market over the forecast timespan.

The demand for thermal mass flow controlling devices from the growing industrial sector globally will boost the market. These components are used in industries including food processing & pharmaceutical, automotive, mining, plastics, natural gas transmission, steel fabrication, and petrochemical. They enable the measurement of gas flow at several points during the process, ensuring optimal production and control. They feature high measuring precision, rugged construction, and short response time. The increasing usage of these devices in biomass gasification will also provide an impetus to the thermal market growth.

The differential pressure flow meter with a stainless-steel housing is gaining popularity owing to its rugged structure. These controllers help in the accurate measurement of differential pressure in domestic services and industrial plants. The compact & robust stainless-steel housing in these controllers widens their range of applications. Their usability in extremely high pressures and temperatures will support the mass flow controller market growth. High installation costs of controlling devices are hindering the industry growth; however, with the reduction in the cost of sensors, the cost of these controllers will help increase their adoption.

The low flow rate mass controller market will experience growth owing to their applications in industries with little differential pressure. There is a high demand for these controllers from the semiconductor, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries. The booming semiconductor industry is demanding high-quality controllers for several fabrication processes. Accurate & fast measurement offered by these controllers will favor the mass flow controller market growth. They also find applications in detecting leakages. Technological developments, such as no moving parts and stainless-steel sensors, will further encourage industry growth.

Urbanization and industrialization have led to a rise in the water & wastewater treatment projects. Stringent government regulations pertaining to the discharge of hazardous waste from industries is stressing the demand for high-performance controllers These controllers are used in wastewater treatment plants for monitoring disinfection and ozone & oxygen inspection. The use of thermal controllers in aeration and combustion air systems as well as fuel gas monitoring in boiler systems will encourage the market growth. With the rising energy costs, wastewater treatment plants have started to control the air flow to parts of the aeration basin to calculate the dissolved oxygen content.

Asia Pacific will witness high growth in the mass flow controller market owing to the booming industrialization in countries including India and China.
