The World Market for Steam Flow Measurement

A Market Study from Flow Research

This page contains a description of a new market study from Flow Research on steam flow measurement. If you are interested in the study, please contact Jesse Yoder at Flow Research: jesse@flowresearch.com, or call Flow Research at 781-245-3200. This study was  published in March 2008.

Steam flow measurement has never been as important as it is today. Many companies that want to reduce their energy and power costs are looking to find ways to increase the efficiency and accuracy of their steam flow measurement. Suppliers have an opportunity to capitalize on this need for improved steam flow measurement by increasing their market presence and offering innovative products. While DP and vortex flowmeters continue to account for a significant portion of the steam flow measurement market, emerging technologies such as Coriolis and ultrasonic are being used more widely. This study quantifies these trends and lets you know what changes to expect in the steam flow measurement market over the next five years.

Flow Research has completed a new market study on the worldwide steam flow measurement market.  The goal of the study was determining the market size of various technologies used to measure gas flow.  In addition, forecasts through 2012 are included.

The study includes the following vital information about the steam flow measurement market::

  • Market size and market shares for all types of flowmeters used to measure steam flow worldwide.

  • Forecast market growth in flowmeters used to measure steam flow through 2012.

  • An explanation of how the different types of flowmeters used to measure steam flow stack up against each other.

  • A description of the interaction of vortex meters with DP meters, and the potential effect of new technologies such as Coriolis and ultrasonic on steam flow measurement

  • Strategies to manufacturers for selling into the steam flow measurement market

  • Company profiles of the 30 leading suppliers of steam flow measurement flowmeters.

The study is divided into the following regions:

  • North America

  • Europe

  • Japan

  • Asia without Japan

  • Rest of World

The following types of flowmeters included in the study, including primary elements:

  • Differential Pressure (DP) Flow Transmitters

  • Primary Elements

  • Vortex

  • Variable Area

  • Target

  • Turbine

  • Variable Area

  • Coriolis

  • Ultrasonic

The study identifies certain application areas that are especially important. 

Flow Research has completed a series of twelve studies that include all types of flowmeters.  Information about these studies is at http://www.flowresearch.com/flow.htm.  This new study will go beyond previous studies by providing updated information to 2007, and by comparing the different technologies as they are used for steam flow measurement.  This study should be of special interest to any manufacturer of flowmeters used to measure steam flow, and to companies that use flowmeters to measure steam flow.
