Temperature Transmitters

This global temperature transmitter market research report comprises device-specific segmentation including transmitter type, intelligence, application, and communication protocol. Panel mount transmitters in the DIN-style or rail-mounted configurations are used when the distance between the sensor measurement and control room is relatively short and free of plant electrical noise. Head mount transmitters fit into the field connection box or thermo-well head of temperature sensors. Field mount transmitters can be located a certain distance away from the temperature sensors because of ambient and process temperature limitations or location and application considerations.

ARC has segmented the temperature transmitters according to the sensor inputs, such as resistance temperature detectors (RTD), thermocouple, universal, and multi-input types. RTD and thermocouple-type temperature transmitters work only with RTD and thermocouple inputs, respectively. Universal input transmitters accept RTD, thermocouple, resistance, and voltage inputs. Multi-input transmitters accept more than one input signal, either all of the same type or a combination of different types.

Greenfield Opportunities in Developing Economies Drive the Temperature Transmitter Market

temperature transmitters marketAsia, with China as the growth engine of the global economy, offers continued opportunities for the growth of temperature transmitter suppliers. The region represents the greatest opportunity for greenfield projects for automation suppliers. Greenfield projects are not tied to legacy systems, leaving them open to implementing state-of-the-art instrumentation and systems. Refineries in China and India will have to address emission requirements, thus opening up potential business. Eager to compete in the world market, many manufacturers are willing to implement advanced solutions, such as fieldbus and plant asset management (PAM), which require intelligent transmitters. Intelligent transmitters carry a higher average selling price than their conventional counterparts carry and, by extension, generate greater revenues for temperature transmitter suppliers.

Temperature Transmitters Strategic Issues

Temperature Transmitter Market Trends

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

Strategic Issue for Temperature Transmitter Vendors: Lack of Experienced Service Personnel

From the retiring wave of baby boomers in North America, Europe, and Japan to the shortfall of qualified engineers in Asia and other parts of the world, the labor shortage of available service personnel is inhibiting the growth of services of temperature transmitter suppliers. Unfortunately, the pool of qualified personnel continues to shrink, as fewer college students (particularly in the US) perceive process automation, process engineering, chemical engineering, or similar technical fields as attractive career paths. It can take a supplier two years to train a new college graduate effectively in the field of automation, and, once trained, the company might have difficulty retaining the individual.

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 into field devices, 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.
