Research has completed three new market studies on the worldwide
ultrasonic flowmeter market. Our last look at the ultrasonic
market was published in 2008, and previous versions were released in 2001 and 2003. The
2012 edition of the study
includes the segmentation included in earlier versions, and also introduces new segmentation.
NEW STUDIES UNDERWAY FOR Q2/Q3/Q4 2016 !
- Core Study: The World Market for Ultrasonic Flowmeters
- Module A: The World Market for Inline Ultrasonic Flowmeters;
- Module B: The World Market for Clamp-on and Insertion Ultrasonic Flowmeters

A primary goal was to determine the size of the ultrasonic flowmeter market in 2011, and to forecast market size through 2016. The three studies are called:
Study: The World Market for Inline Ultrasonic Flowmeters;
The three studies identify the following global elements:
size and market shares for all types of ultrasonic flowmeters in 2011 by
As stated above, one goal of this study was to determine the size of the ultrasonic flowmeter market worldwide in 2011. This market continues to be one of the fastest growing flowmeter markets, which is driven in part by the expanding market for custody transfer of natural gas. Ultrasonic flowmeters excel in this segment of the industrial process applications spectrum.
One important issue is the contrast in growth between transit time and Doppler flowmeters. While Doppler flowmeters remain one of the best solutions for dirty liquids, transit time flowmeters have been showing faster growth in recent years. Much of the new product development is going into transit time meters. Transit time flowmeters are typically more accurate than Doppler meters, and multipath transit time meters are becoming widely used for custody transfer of natural gas. This study also looks at growth in the hybrid flowmeter market.
This study analyzes the market for multipath ultrasonic meters for both gas and liquid, and segments this market by number of paths. The ultrasonic flowmeter market for custody transfer of natural gas is the fastest growing market within flow, with the possible exception of multiphase meters. Multipath meters for petroleum liquids are also showing significant growth.
Steam flow measurement is a new frontier for ultrasonic flowmeters. Currently, this market is dominated by differential pressure (DP) and vortex flowmeters, each of which can handle the unique flow measurement difficulties that the different steam types present. However, as the technology improves, this is becoming a growth area for ultrasonic flowmeters. Steam flow measurement is growing in importance as companies look to increase energy efficiency and cut energy costs. The high accuracy and reliability of ultrasonic meters make them an attractive option for some steam flow applications.
Since completing our first ultrasonic study in 2001, we have been following this market very closely. Many developments have been described in our quarterly report, the Market Barometer. Each issue of the Market Barometer includes an update on the ultrasonic flowmeter market. This new study builds on the knowledge we have gained over the years, but it is a completely new look at this market. For more information on the Market Barometer, go to www.worldflow.com.
