Friend of Flow,
Spring is a time for new
beginnings. Even though
weíve had a relatively warm winter here in the Boston, Massachusetts
area, itís still exciting to experience the changeover from winter to
spring. Now, instead of looking backwards at the past few months of
snow and cold, we are now looking forward to the coming months of warmth
and improved weather.
Anyone who is involved in the
vortex flowmeter market also has reason to take a forward-looking
attitude. It is true that,
for many years, the vortex flowmeter market has been an underperformer.
For example, the market showed very little growth between 2000 and
2002. And in 2003, most flowmeter markets showed minimal growth,
due to economic conditions and the effects of 9/11.
Through 2005, the vortex flowmeter market seemed relatively small,
compared to the magnetic, differential pressure (DP), and Coriolis
Yet anyone who looks at the
vortex flowmeter market today can find reason for optimism, both from
recent events and in prospects for the future.
One important development is that the American Petroleum Institute
(API) has formulated standards for vortex flowmeters in custody transfer
applications. This change is
long overdue, and should potentially broaden the vortex flowmeter market
to include a new range of applications.
If these standards are approved, a whole new world will be open up
for vortex flowmeters. Similar
standards have resulted in substantial sales increases for both ultrasonic
and Coriolis flowmeters.
The past five years have seen
dramatic changes take place in the vortex flowmeter market.
Some of these changes are:
In addition to these changes,
new suppliers have entered the market.
Aalborg purchased the vortex flowmeter line from Venture
Measurement, and Racine Federated purchased J-Tecís industrial vortex
flowmeter line. Other
companies have offered significant enhancements to their vortex meters,
resulting in improved products with a broader range of choices for
For the past six months, Flow
Research has been studying the worldwide vortex flowmeter market.
We have left no stone unturned in our attempt to track down every
supplier worldwide. We have
identified and profiled 35 manufacturers of vortex flowmeters, more than
twice the number in our previous study.
We have found a market that is far more dynamic and exciting than
we had imagined. And we have
documented all this in our new study, The
World Market for Vortex Flowmeters, 3rd Edition.
We began shipping this study just ten days ago.
Not only does this study
uncover more suppliers than we ever thought possible, it includes more
segmentation than has appeared in any previous vortex study.
Segmentation in this study includes the following:
Ö and much more!
