Pressure Transmitters

Pressure transmitters usually consist of pressure sensors, an amplifier or conditioning element, and an output signal. The output signal is used to transmit the pressure reading to a flow computer, controller, or distributed control system (DCS). While pressure transmitters are used to measure pressure, they also have an important relation to three other widely measured variables: flow, level, and temperature. Differential pressure (DP) transmitters can measure both flow and level, and some pressure transmitters have temperature sensors on board to measure temperature.

ARC’s report on the global pressure transmitter market includes device-specific segmentations such as transmitter type, intelligence, application, and communication protocol.

Increasing Implementation of Multivariable Transmitters Drives the Pressure Transmitter Market

pressure transmitters marketOne of the major trends driving the pressure transmitter market is the demand for multivariable pressure transmitters. These transmitters are in demand in various industries, as they measure more than one process variable in a single instrument. Typically, these transmitters measure pressure, differential pressure, and temperature. As such, a multivariable transmitter can actually replace three single variable transmitters. In many cases, they use these values to produce a mass flow measurement. Multivariable transmitters can be used to reduce the need to buy a separate flow computer to perform the flow calculation; if individual pressure and temperature transmitters are used, the value outputs are sent to a flow computer that performs the flow calculation. The trend toward multivariable transmitters can be expected to continue within the differential pressure transmitter and flowmeter markets. These products typically cost less compared with the cost of buying the transmitters separately.

Pressure Transmitters Strategic Issues

Pressure Transmitters Market Trends

In addition to providing a five-year market forecast, the Pressure Transmitter market research provides detailed quantitative current market data and addresses key strategic issues as follows.

Strategic Issue for Pressure Transmitter Vendors: Newer Technologies Taking Market Share

Although users are familiar and comfortable with current pressure-based technologies, ultrasonic and radar measurement technologies have started to gain rapid acceptance. Increased accuracy, along with easy installation and a low maintenance profile even when applied in harsh process environments, has helped these newer technologies enjoy greater acceptance among users. Users are beginning to prefer radar devices for high-pressure applications in the industry. As prices of ultrasonic and radar devices continue to decline, it is likely that these will take a market share from traditional flow and level measurement technologies such as pressure transmitters.

Strategic Issue for Users: Smart Devices Present Unique Challenges

The introduction of smart field devices poses some significant challenges for technology users.  With so much intelligence being pushed to the field device, end user companies need to distribute, verify, and audit those rules in a distributed environment. While reasonably straightforward to do in a centralized system, managing those business rules in a non-centralized world is far more challenging. With higher connectivity to IoT, users may also face integration issues.

Strategic Issue for All Market Participants: COVID-19 Pandemic

The world is facing a severe and acute public health emergency due to the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic. Many countries have declared restrictive measures, such as lockdowns and stay-at-home orders, to contain the pandemic at a local level. Some countries have mostly reopened their economies, while some are still in the process of fighting the battle against the virus, and some others are reverting to closures in the wake of subsequent waves. Some developing countries have been simultaneously hit by a downturn in commodity prices, adding to the economic and fiscal pressure. While coordinating globally, therefore, policymakers also need to be sensitive to the needs of their individual countries.
