The Vortex Flowmeters market research study delivers current market analysis plus a five year market and technology forecast. The study also takes a closer look at upcoming market and technology trends related to vortex flowmeters. It is available in multiple editions including worldwide, all regions, and most major countries.
Vortex Flowmeters: Users Focus on Energy Cost and Accurate Measurements
Vortex flowmeters are suitable for measuring flow of several types of media operating under high pressure and temperature conditions such as liquids, including corrosive ones, gases, and saturated and superheated steam. Advances in vibration eliminating technology, multivariable transmitters, and dual sensor vortex meters have increased the reliability and application range of these devices.
Low maintenance and installation costs are also making them more attractive to users. All these advancements have seen increased adoption of vortex technology in the process industries, especially in the chemical, refinery, power generation, water and wastewater, and oil & gas segments. Revival of the oil & gas sector is expected to have a positive impact on the Capex and OpEx of the manufacturing sector in general. Moreover, users are realigning their operations to adjust with the dynamics in the oil & gas sector, especially upstream activities, and the suppliers need to follow suit.
Strategies for both end users and suppliers are discussed in detail in the report so that each can leverage advancements in device and networking technology, Industrial IoT, and service offerings.
Vortex Flowmeter Strategic Issues
Strategic Issue for Vortex Flowmeters Vendors: Competition from Other Flow Devices
While the four modern technologies are a major competition to traditional measurement technologies, they also compete among themselves. Each flow technology has its unique merits that make it well suited for certain applications. For instance, oil refining is a significant market for flowmeters that require high-accuracy measurements. Declining prices of ultrasonic and Coriolis flowmeters pose a stiff competition to vortex meters. Moreover, these are more accurate than vortex flowmeters. The water & wastewater industry is also getting more inclined toward using low-cost ultrasonic flowmeters, and this may reduce the market for vortex flowmeters in the future.
Strategic Issue for Users: Price-sensitive Market in Developing Nations
There is rising pressure on supplier margins due to intense competition in the flowmeter market, coupled with the need for low-cost devices in emerging economies as they build industrial bases. The challenge for the suppliers is to offer affordable products that have all the necessary functionalities. In countries such as China and India, capital funding is expensive and hence many local manufacturers, with limited financing, are highly cost-conscious. These end users are more concerned about their ability to make affordable upfront investment, and this often results in low-cost equipment purchases.
Strategic Issue for All Market Participants: Low Flow Cutoff
The inability of vortex meters to accurately measure flow rate below a certain Reynolds Number, commonly referred to as low flow cutoff, remains one of the most significant obstacles to vortex flowmeter adoption.
