Analog connectivity technology segment in the Asia Pacific mass flow controller market will grow at a CAGR of 7% during the forecast period. The demand for analog flow controllers is owing to their rising adoption in research laboratories for various experiments, sampling gases, and others.
The analog connectivity technology provides high accuracy in flow signal output, which is proportional to the adjusted flow rate, and offers reliable flow monitoring to comply with the process monitoring systems. These characteristics have prompted industries and firms to use analog communication technology to accelerate product development and manufacture mass flow controllers with low cost and high accuracy. For instance, in April 2021, Posifa Technologies launched the next-gen mass airflow sensor series, which are designed to perform in harsh environments with high humidity and corrosive gases. These sensors control the airflow and provide mass flow measurement in both analog & digital outputs for various laboratories and healthcare applications.
India accounts for the Asia Pacific mass flow controller market share of around 15% and is expected to witness 6% growth till 2027. Growth is attributed to the growing demand for mass flow controllers in the chemical sector for a variety of applications including mass spectroscopy systems, catalyst research, and chemical reactors.
Increased government efforts to boost the manufacturing and processing sectors in emerging countries are expected to generate profitable growth possibilities for mass flow controller manufacturers in Asia Pacific. For instance, in May 2021, the Indian government stated that under the union budget it will invest around USD 32.2 million in the Department of Chemical and Petrochemicals and is estimating to invest USD 107.38 billion by 2025. The government is also launching a Production Linked Incentive (PLI) scheme in the chemical sector to promote the domestic manufacturing of agrochemicals.
Major mass flow controller market players in Asia Pacific are Teledyne Hastings Instruments, MKS Instruments, Ohkura Electric Co., Ltd, Brooks Instrument, and Sensirion AG, among others.
These industry participants are continuously involved in accelerating their alliances and acquisitions strategies to cater high competitiveness among other players. For instance, in April and May 2019, TASI Group of Companies acquired two flow instrument manufacturers, Onicon Inc. and Sierra Instruments. With these acquisitions, the company aims to grow its flow business and product range in flow measurement instrumentation.
