According to a recent market study published by the Growth Market Reports titled, Global Flow Computer Market by Types, Applications, and Regions: Size, Share, Trends and Opportunity Analysis, 2017-2027, the market was valued at USD 826.7 Million in 2019 and is expected to expand at a healthy growth rate of 9.2% by the year 2027. A flow computer is a device that computes a corrected flow based on information derived from flow meters.

The flow computer is an essential device that helps to keep track of or determining any changes that affect measurements and changes in flow rate, density, and temperature. Flow computer data plays a pivotal role to point out any malfunction in the flow meter. The flow computers increase the measurement operations and metrology performance by reducing the measurement uncertainty, which in turn, drives the growth of the flow computer market.

The global flow computer market is fragmented based on types, applications, and regions. Based on types, the flow computer market has been categorized as hardware, software, and support services. In terms of applications, the flow computer market has been segmented into fuel monitoring, liquid & gas measurement, custody & control, well optimization, well head measurement, and others.

On the basis of regions, the global flow computer market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa (MEA). North America region is further bifurcated into the U.S., and Canada. Latin America is further split into Brazil, Mexico, and Rest of Latin America, Asia Pacific is classified as India, China, South Korea, Australia, Japan, and Rest of Asia Pacific. Europe is categorized into the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Russia, and Rest of Europe, and the MEA is further divided into GCC, Egypt, South Africa, and Rest of Middle East & Africa.

As per Growth Market Reports’s industry analyst Akshata Ahire, “The Global Flow Computer Market is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period, 2021–2027. Flow computers are extensively used in the oil & gas industry. According to several studies on the oil industry, the demand for oil is expected to increase by 2027. Furthermore, the market in China and India is expected to grow at a significant pace during the forecast period.

The oil & gas industry is estimated to expand substantial growth rate over the next years due to the heavy consumption of fuel by Asia Pacific countries. The oil & gas industry involves many different types of equipment and materials to manufacture end products. Identifying and controlling hazards during the manufacturing processes is essential to prevent injuries and deaths. The constant flow monitoring not only damages the flow meter, but also damages to the machine tools, which can cause fatal accidents. Flow computer reveal these discrepancies to the personnel in the oil & gas industry.”
