Global Level Measurement for Process Control Market Size (2023 - 2030)

According to our research report, the global level measurement for the process control market is estimated to reach a total market valuation of USD 10.96 billion by 2030. The market is projected to grow with a 6.5% CAGR during the period of analysis (2023 - 2030).

Industry Overview:

The term "level" is used to describe both the height measurement and the fluid level in a tank, respectively. We can ensure a procedure is safe by measuring the level because it is crucial to every step of the process. The top-down measurement is not vulnerable to leakage or could be thought of as a less leakage procedure. Level measurement is classified into the bottom-up and top-down levels. Top-down measurements may or may not make contact with the fluid, whereas bottom-up measurements always make contact with the process fluid. The number of gases and solids can also be measured, in addition to the level of fluids.

The level measurement equipment is suited for determining the level of a gas or fluid, and depending on the application, it may be done directly or indirectly. For control purposes, a level measuring device would serve as an indicator that displays the liquid level. This information would be transmitted as AC signals. According to the set point, the level switches would check whether the liquid was at a high level or low level.

Impact of Covid-19 on the Industry:

The worldwide economy and all global industries have been greatly impacted by COVID-19. The fundamental cause of this is the global supply chain disruptions. Due to the sharp drop in product demand, economies all around the world have suffered. The pandemic-related lack of raw materials has curtailed production across all industries. The main causes of the output reduction are the decline in exports and supply chain interruptions. COVID-19 has an impact on the level transmitter industry as a result. As a result, the predicted year-over-year growth rate for 2020 is lower than it was for 2019.

Market Drivers

High focus on industrial automation and optimum utilization of resources:

For a manufacturing company to succeed, maintaining the quality of a final product through careful monitoring of raw materials and accurate regulation of production processes is crucial. Automated process control technologies are now being used by several manufacturers for quicker, better, and less expensive manufacturing. Across a variety of process industries, industrial automation lowers operational costs, enhances product quality, boosts productivity, and resolves industrial health and safety-related challenges. Both discrete and process sectors have focused on implementing the best practices to decrease waste and boost plant productivity. Making better business and operational decisions based on plant data, such as real-time production data, is the key to improving efficiency and optimizing manufacturing processes. Consequently, there is a growing emphasis on integrating systems and software, including level transmitters, that could make this job easier.

Growing demand for radar level transmitter:

Process industries place a high value on radar-level transmitters because they are the most dependable, accurate, and suitable for unstable process settings. In practically every application involving solids and liquids, level measuring is made easier by radar level technology. Additionally effective with boiling surfaces, recirculating fluids, propeller mixers, and aeration tanks are radar-level transmitters. As a result, they are employed in about 90% of level measurement applications. Additionally, guided wave radar technology has several advantages for processes that involve dust, foam, and heavy vapors. The technology enables the measuring signal to pass through the upper product and deliver measurement of the lower product wherever there is a need for interface measurement (such as oil on water).

Market Restraints

Network congestion in continuous level measurement:

Level measurement is carried out using a level transmitter, which also transmits the measured data to distant monitoring systems across a network. Utilizing computers throughout the production process allows for automation in industries. As a result, continuous level measurement generates a lot of data, which may cause network congestion. The flow of data communication may be slowed down by excessive data in systems utilized throughout the industry.

Difficulties associated with High-level measurement in tanks with floating roof:

The roof of storage tanks for explosive substances like gasoline, naphtha, and organic compounds is designed to float on the liquid. This minimizes evaporation, lowers the possibility of fire or explosion, eliminates the buildup of vapors, and reduces both product loss and air pollution. The detection of high-level measurements and the overfilling of tanks and containers, however, present significant difficulties for the floating roof. Traditional level switches, like tuning forks or ultrasonic gap switches, cannot be used to measure liquids since the roof is a solid object.

This research report on the global level measurement for the process control market has been segmented and sub-segmented based on, and Geography & region.

Global Level Measurement for Process Control Market- By Type

  • Contact

  • Non- Contact

Technology options for contact level transmitters include magnetostrictive, hydrostatic, capacitive, and guided wave radar sensing. The most popular of them are differential pressure/hydrostatic technology for contact level transmitters. The main benefit of these level transmitters is that they don't need to be compensated for changes in a fluid's conductivity, density, or dielectric. Compared to non-contact level transmitters, contact level transmitters are more affordable.
