Dear Friend of Flow:
The last time you took a flight
across your country, did you think about the value of seeing the country
from the air? The perspective
from 20,000 or 30,000 feet is quite different than the perspective in a
car, driving across the country. True,
you miss some of the details that are present in a close-up view. But
instead of having to climb the mountains, you fly over them.
And, after several hours, you get a view of the entire country,
instead of a view of just a small part of it.
At Flow Research, we can
appreciate the value of having a broader perspective.
We’ve spent the last ten years studying the flow, pressure, and
temperature markets. During
this time, we’ve published many individual studies on each of the flow
technologies, as well as a number of pressure and temperature studies.
We’ve published three editions of studies on the most popular
types of flowmeters, and one or two editions on the rest. And in 2003, we published the first edition of Volume X:
The World Market for Flowmeters.
the past six months, Flow Research has completed a number of individual
studies on different flow and pressure technologies.
These include pressure
transmitters, ultrasonic flowmeters, and steam
flow measurement. We are
very close to publishing a study on Coriolis
previously had published studies on differential pressure (DP) flow
transmitters, primary elements, vortex flowmeters, magnetic flowmeters,
and gas flow measurement. We
have created a very detailed view of the entire flowmeter market by
looking at each type of flowmeter individually and creating a map of each
technology in the form of a market study.
Now we have put all this
information together into the most comprehensive study of the worldwide
flowmeter market ever published.
This new study, Volume X: The World Market for Flowmeters, 2nd
Edition, includes all 14 types of flowmeters, and is completely
updated through 2007. We found that the worldwide flowmeter market has grown to
$4.5 billion from $3.1 billion in 2002.
New-technology flowmeters, especially ultrasonic and Coriolis, have
led the way in this fast-growth market.
However, some traditional technology flowmeters, especially
differential pressure (DP) flowmeters, have also shown impressive growth.
During this time, the worldwide flowmeter market rode the wave of
capital spending and investment that began in early 2004.
Dramatic growth in the energy markets also helped propel this

Who can benefit from this
study? This study is especially valuable to any company that is involved in
selling more than one type of flowmeter.
Volume X enables you to compare market size, growth rates, and
market shares for each type of flowmeter.
The information is available on a worldwide basis, and also for
five different geographic regions. This
means you can compare the market size and growth rate for your flowmeter
types, and also for the flowmeter types you are competing with.
In case you are thinking about adding any new flowmeter product
lines, this study also provides valuable market data on these prospective
flowmeter types. You will
also receive valuable data on the suppliers who are already in these
While we put all the data
together in the past several months, this new study builds on four years
of continuous research. The
data in this study is not available anywhere else, and it is not the sort
of data that could be easily be replicated or reproduced.
We are able to obtain this data because we are an independent
research firm. Now we are
making it available to you for an amount that is far less than it would
cost you to do this type of research yourself.
I encourage you to take advantage of this new study while the data
is still sizzling hot!
President, Flow Research,
