The rising demand for measuring mass, volume, linear & non-linear flow rate in the oil & gas sector is expected to be a key driver of the global magnetic flowmeter market growth. In addition, cost efficiency and ease of installation may also catapult demand. Advance capabilities with the aforementioned factors make the product margin high, making it the largest type of flowmeter market by revenue. Magnetic flowmeters are also referred to as mag meters.
The magnetic flowmeter is an instrument that can measure water-based or conductive volumetric flow including pulp & paper slurries and black liquor. It is also used in detecting flaws and impurities, which is expected to provide avenues for market growth over the next seven years. In addition, the development and updation of certain standard norms for impurities may instigate manufacturers to develop better instruments, thereby contributing towards future growth. Advancement in electromagnetic technology is expected to make the product better and more accurate, which may further increase demand.
Continuous technological improvement has resulted in the introduction of a two-wire mag meter that utilizes available power from the loop-power supply, which reduces wiring costs resulting in low installation costs. Furthermore, their application in non-intrusive measurement may also increase the industry demand. The development of battery-controlled and wireless mag meters is also expected to drive future market growth. This improvement has reduced the complexity involved in the installment of instruments in remote places. It is ideal for applications where low maintenance and low-pressure drops are required. The instruments are easy to maintain, thereby reducing the maintenance cost which may also be a key growth factor over the forecast period.
Water shortage and growing population in countries such as China and India may result in substantial growth in the water treatment industry, thereby providing avenues for growth over the foreseeable future. Several suppliers are integrating advanced technology to their products, for instance, an adhesion diagnostic level function in the product that monitors the working condition of electrodes. This further increases their application level, which may spur demand. Mag meters when equipped with LCD alarm indicator bubble detection may reduce noise, which may further catalyze the industry demand.
The inability to measure non-conductive liquids such as hydrocarbons is expected to be a main challenge to the industry expansion. Mag meters are classified into in-line, insertion, and low-flow magnetic flowmeters. Rising raw material costs may also pose a challenge to industry growth over the next seven years. The products are increasingly used in several applications such as water & wastewater treatment, chemicals, oil & gas, food & beverages, pharmaceutical, pulp & paper, and metal & mining industries. They are increasingly used in the water & wastewater treatment and oil & gas industry. Chemical and pharmaceutical industries are expected to emerge as prominent application segments owing to a high number of chemical industries in developing regions.
Europe remains the largest market; however, due to increasing requirements in wastewater treatment plants, Asia Pacific may gain considerable share over the foreseeable future. The Middle East & Africa region may also witness high growth due to a substantial rise in the oil & gas industry. Shale gas & oil expansion in the North American region is also expected to impel demand over the forecast period.
Key industry participants include Emerson Electric Company, Honeywell International Inc., Endress+Hauser AG, Azbil Corporation, Omega Engineering Inc., Siemens AG, ABB Ltd., Yokogawa Electric Corporation, Krohne Messtechnik GmbH, and Hitachi Ltd. The industry is witnessing merger, partnership, and acquisitions among the prominent players in order to establish themselves as key suppliers. New product development is expected to be centered on sanitary applications due to the rising need for wastewater treatment.

"The quality of research they have done for us has been excellent."
The global construction industry, once thriving with increased investments, has been severely affected by the suspension of the construction activities in the wake of the ongoing pandemic. Shortage of labors coupled with potential supply chain bottlenecks of materials and equipment is expected to cause project delays in the ongoing funded projects and may lead to reduced spending in the upcoming projects. Uncertainty around the actual duration of the prevailing lockdown makes it hard to anticipate how a recovery in the construction industry will unfold. On similar lines, the HVAC industry has been adversely affected by the COVID-19 outbreak due to the shutting down of several component manufacturing facilities across China, European countries, Japan, and the U.S. This has consequently led to a significant slowdown in the production of HVAC equipment. Lockdowns imposed by the governments in the wake of the Covid-19 outbreak has not only affected manufacturing but also pegged back the consumer demand for HVAC equipment. The report will account for Covid19 as a key market contributor.
