Vortex Study Highlights New Developments in the Market!
The World Market for Vortex Flowmeters, 4th
Edition is now available!
A lot of important developments have occurred in
the vortex flowmeter market in the past several years. This study takes
these developments into account, and provides a completely updated look at
the worldwide vortex flowmeter market.
One exciting new development is the formulation of
a standard for the use of vortex flowmeters in custody transfer
applications. This standard was approved by the American Petroleum
Institute (API) in January 2007, as a result of expressed needs by
manufacturers and end-users alike. In this study, we determined the impact
this standard is having on the vortex flowmeter market. This is just one
of the many dynamic changes that are occurring in this fast-changing

Liquid Analytical Study Is Now Shipping!
We just wrapped up The World Market for Liquid
Analytical Instruments study, and it is now shipping!
Liquid analytical measurement applications and
their associated revenues have grown significantly during the last several
years. A major driver of this growth worldwide has been the expansion in
demand for finer analyses of process variables related to enhanced
industrial process quality targets, more stringent environmental
compliance standards, and technology advances. There is also a major trend
moving laboratory applications to the real-time process itself. And there
has been significant new capital projects growth in large regional
economies such as

Gas Flow Measurement Study Goes Modular!
Interest in gas flow
measurement among users remains at a very high level.
We believe that this is an optimal time to quantify the growth in
this market, and to take another in-depth look at what appears to be an
A major driver of this growth worldwide has been the
expansion in demand for natural gas and related energy products.
There have also been significant new capital projects in
large regional economies such as India,
Our research intends to determine where growth is occurring -
and where it is not - in terms of application, industry, and geography.
The results of this study will inform the reader about where the highest
returns should be expected to occur through 2015 in these three basic
new gas flowmeter study will also feature five add-on modules that will
provide more in-depth information on end-user markets, on custody
transfer, and on multiphase flow measurement.
A: Natural Gas Producers Worldwide:
Module A is mainly oriented towards companies that want to enhance their
instrumentation sales worldwide to the larger producers of natural gas.
It will include company profiles of the large producers,
relationships among them, strategies for marketing to them, and a
discussion of trends in flow measurement relative to these large

Module B: Natural Gas Producers in
the Middle East:
Module B will include profiles of natural gas producers in the Middle
East, and will be oriented towards instrumentation companies that want to
increase their sales in the
For more information on this module, go to www.mideastnatgas.com
Module C: The World Market for Custody Transfer of
Natural Gas: Module C will focus specifically on the market for custody
transfer of natural gas, which is the fastest-growing niche within the
flowmeter market. Much of the growth in this market has been due to growth
in the use of ultrasonic flowmeters for custody transfer applications,
spurred by the standards set by the American Gas Association (AGA), the
International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and International
Organization of Legal Metrology (OIML).

Module D: Strategies, Industries
Module D provides
strategies for companies already in the flowmeter market as well as for
those considering joining. Company strategies apply to the entire
flowmeter market, as well as to individual product lines.
Module E: The World Market for
Phase and Multiphase Flowmeters:
This module focuses
specifically on the newest types of flowmeters to enter the market. Most
applications measure one type of flow, either liquid, gas, or steam.
This is called single phase flow measurement.
However, a need has now developed to measure fluids with more than
one phase. This measurement is
of dual phase or multiphase flow, and it primarily occurs in the oil & gas industry.
