The increasing technological advancements in flow sensor is expected to proliferate the demand

Flow sensor

A flow sensor is a digital device that measures or regulates the flow rate of liquids and gasses inside pipes and tubes. Flow sensors are commonly connected to gauges to render their measurements; however, it is also connected to computer systems and digital interfaces. They are usually utilized in HVAC systems, medical devices, chemical factories, and septic systems. Flow sensors are capable to detect leaks, blockages, pipe bursts, and modifications in liquid concentration because of contamination or pollution.

The increase in demand for Flow Sensor Market in the oil & gas industries is one of the noteworthy growth enablers due to an extensive demand for fossil fuel-based energy sources coupled with increasing penetration in the automotive sector.For instance, according to the BP statistical review of world energy, 2021, the primary (coal, oil, and natural gas) fuel consumption is around 84% and is expected to increase in the coming years. Additionally, technological advancement is the key factor that has increased the demand for flow sensors across various applicationsdue to extensive technological development including use of wireless monitoring & control, digital readouts, and advanced sensors. The integration of IoT (Internet of Things) will further help in automatic meter reading that collects data automatically and remotely. For instance, in February 2021,Flusso partnered with Pelion the USA based company, the connected device service provider. Due to this partnership Flusso, accelerate the development and roll-out of connected flow sensing products and systems based on its unique FLS110 flow sensor.
