Market Trends of Process Instrumentation Industry

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Process Instrumentation Market according to our research experts:

Water and Wastewater Treatment is Expected to Witness the Highest Growth

  • Process instrumentations are used to monitor various parameters in process plants, such as flow, pressure, temperature, pH, conductivity, level, turbidity, speed, force, humidity, and other factors in water & wastewater treatment.
  • SCADA systems are widely employed in monitoring and regulating water and waste treatment processes. These enable operators to monitor the consumption, flows, and contents of water tanks, canals, reservoirs, and others. Furthermore, these give data on the condition of the water being handled. SCADA technologies are frequently utilized to manage stormwater draining infrastructure and regulate wastewater purification plants.
  • The current challenges of water availability and sustainability are primarily attributed to an enormous increase in demand. However, as per U.S. EPA in May 2022, Household leaks waste around 900 billion gallons of water per year in the United States. That is equivalent to roughly 11 million households' annual water use. This necessitates the adoption of process instrumentation, such as flow control valves, fueling market growth.
  • Moreover, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has accelerated investment in the nation's aging water infrastructure. For instance, in November 2022, the U.S. The EPA approved a USD 52 million Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (WIFIA) grant to the City of Pflugerville, Texas, to support the Water Treatment Plant Modernization Project. With the WIFIA loan, the EPA is assisting the facility in increasing the amount of drinking water it can process while also keeping the water healthier to consume with modern treatment and filter equipment, which in turn is expected to propel the growth of the process instrumentation market in the industry.
  • Increasing government initiatives in wastewater treatment are expected to contribute to segment growth over the coming years. For instance, in October 2022 New York Governor launched a USD 55 million wastewater upgrade initiative at Buffalo's Bird Island Wastewater Processing Facility.

Asia Pacific to Emerge as the Fastest Growing Market

  • Asia Pacific is expected to have the fastest growth over the forecast due to rapidly increasing industrial activities, rising cost pressure and production rate, and favorable government policies in developing nations such as China and India in this region.
  • The region's expanding industrial sector and increased oil & gas usage are propelling the industry ahead. For instance, China intends to increase its massive gas pipeline networks to 163,000 kilometers by 2025, requiring a USD 1.9 trillion investment.
  • Increasing end-use developments in the region are expected to create lucrative opportunities for market participants to improve their footprints. In January 2022, Adani Total Gas Ltd (ATGL), a collaborative partnership among the Adani Group and TotalEnergies, secured licenses to develop its City Gas Distribution (CGD) infrastructure to 14 additional geographical regions with an INR 20,000-crore (~USD 200 Billion) investment.
  • The rising consumption of oil & gas will necessitate the establishment of new production facilities, boosting the requirement for process instrumentation. According to the IEA, daily oil output is expected to exceed 15 million barrels by 2040. Further, according to the IBEF, natural gas usage is expected to surpass 143.08 million tons by 2040. Thus, increasing demand for oil & gas is expected to contribute to regional market growth.
  • The active role of governments in educating the masses regarding the benefits of technology and rising funds being diverted towards adopting technologically advanced machinery in industries has been of prime importance for market growth in the region. In the next few years, the market will be driven by the thriving growth of key end-use industries such as metal and mining, chemical, food and beverages, oil & gas, and others.
