For more information: email@example.com
Flow Research has completed a new market study on the worldwide mass flow controller market. The study determines the size of the mass flow controller (MFC) market. In addition, forecasts through 2012 are included. The study was published in July 2008.
The study has multiple purposes:
· To determine market size and market shares for mass flow controllers in 2007.
· To forecast market growth for mass flow controllers through 2012.
· To identify industries and applications for mass flow controllers, and to identify growth areas.
· To provide strategies to manufacturers for selling into the MFC market..
· To provide company profiles of the main suppliers of mass flow controllers.
The study divides the market into the following regions:
· North America
· Asia without Japan
· Rest of World
Mass flow controllers are used in many industries. We have explored the following industries and applications where MFCs are used:
· Electronics Manufacturing
· Fiber Optics/Glass
· Fuel Cells
· Heat Treating
· Metals Processing
What's Inside this Study?
The drive for alternative energy will fuel the use of mass flow controllers in industrial markets
The industrial and lab/research markets are made up of a wide variety of industrial segments. Some of these, such as automotive and aerospace, are going through difficult times, due to rising energy costs. Others, such as fuel cells and power, are thriving, due to the search for alternative energy sources. The need to find alternative energy sources will drive additional research and development in the foreseeable future. Mass flow controllers will benefit from these industrial segments, as they are used to measure and control gas flows in these segments.
End-users will opt for the automation provided by mass flow controllers in cases where they currently have manual or non-electronic systems
In some cases, gas flow is measured and controlled using a combination of a variable area flowmeter and needle valve. While some variable area flowmeters have been developed with an output signal, the majority of these flowmeters still need to be read manually. In many cases, the needle valve is adjusted manually.
trend today is toward the automation provided by mass flow controllers, as
opposed to the lower accuracy of variable area flowmeters.
