Key Market Trends

Oil and Gas to Show Significant Growth

  • The Middle Eastern region is home to countries that produce and export a prominent share of crude oil globally. Owing to this, the region commands significant demand for pressure sensors which are used for a wide range of applications. For instance, as of October 2021, the number of oil and gas rigs in the Middle East stood at 275, including offshore and land, which is the second-highest in the world, according to Baker Hughes.
  • The region is witnessing the discovery of new oil and gas wells continuously while old and underutilized ones are being rejuvenated. For instance, recently, the government-owned Abu Dhabi National Oil Co. announced a major rig fleet expansion program that is expected to add dozens of rigs by 2025.
  • According to the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, Saudi Arabia possesses around 17% of the world’s proven petroleum reserves. The oil and gas industry accounted for about 50% of gross domestic product and about 70% of export earnings. The significant presence of the oil and gas industry in the country has contributed to the growth of the market in the region.

United Arab Emirates to Hold the Highest Market Share

  • The Gulf region has been adopting solar power to meet some of its energy needs. Various projects are underway across the region, including the United Arab Emirates, which further increase the application of pressure sensors in the energy and power sector. Moreover, The United Arab Emirates plans to increase its power-generation capacity by around 21 GW, and its solar capacity is anticipated to constitute 26.1% of the total additional generation capacity.
  • Countries like the United Arab Emirates are increasingly investing in building a technology-based economy to prepare for a post-oil future. For instance, in 2020, the United Arab Emirates held the highest network penetration in the world, which stood at 99% amid the impact of the pandemic in the region, according to the International Telecommunication Union. This would further complement the application of pressure sensors in IoT-based devices.
  • Pressure sensors are also being readily used in food and beverage manufacturing plants. For instance, in November 2020, Al Rawabi Dairy Company is a leading dairy and juice company in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), partnered with VEGA to install a VEGABAR 38 pressure sensor to carry out the level measurements of its 5-meter high milk tanks.

Competitive Landscape

The Middle East and Africa Pressure Sensor market is highly concentrated and consists of a few major players. In terms of market share, few of the major players currently dominate the market. However, with innovative and sustainable packaging, many of the companies are increasing their market presence by securing new contracts and by tapping new markets.

  • July 2021 - The Bosch Rexroth SA launched Hydac pressure transducers to provide improved functionality, reliability, and overall performance throughout the industrial hydraulics sector – in manufacturing systems, machinery, mobile or laboratory applications.

Recent Developments

  • February 2021 - Abshaev serves as the principal investigator for ANTIGRAD's research project funded by the National Center of Meteorology (NCM), Abu Dhabi, UAE, under the UAE Research Program for Rain Enhancement Science (UAEREP). Abshaev and his team relied on numerical and computational fluid dynamic simulations to determine optimal sensor placement on the drone. As a result, the temperature, humidity, pressure sensor, and the ultrasonic anemometer were attached to a half-meter vertical mast centrally located above the drone.
  • October 2020 - Al Qassimi Hospital's Department of Cardiac Surgery has made several milestones, including the first-in-human implantation of the pulmonary artery pressure sensor, establishing a drive-through clinic to check pacemakers remotely, the implantation of a pacemaker to strengthen the heart muscle, the implantation of a battery-powered pacemaker in atrium and ventricle (New Micra AV), and obtaining the Clinical Care Program Certification (CCPC) from the Joint Commission International.
