In the industrial field, the instruments for measuring fluid flow are collectively referred to as flow meters or flow meters. It is one of the most important instruments in industrial measurement. With the development of industry, the accuracy and range of flow measurement are required to be higher and higher. In order to adapt to a variety of uses, various types of flow meters have been introduced one after another, which are widely used in petroleum and natural gas, petrochemical industry, water treatment, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, energy, metallurgy, pulp and paper making, building materials and other industries.
In 2008, the global flowmeter market reached 2.83 billion US dollars, an increase of about 3.9% over 2007.
Due to the lack of strong support from the national system and mechanism in this industry, China's instrument industry lacks high-level compound talents and comprehensive talents who are familiar with and proficient in the intersection of various disciplines. Low ability of independent innovation and lack of independent intellectual property rights. Specifically, domestic high-end automation products are scarce and the market competitiveness is not strong.
Modern metrology is a highly integrated product of light, machinery, electricity, computer and many basic disciplines. It is sensitive to new technologies. It is one of the products with relatively fast renewal speed in modern industrial products. New products will be launched every year. Especially in today's era of rapid development of information technology, the competition is becoming increasingly fierce, and the development speed will be far behind if it is a little slower. Although China has entered the 21st century, many things still remain at the level of the early 1980s. Almost all large and high-end instruments and equipment rely on imports, and even some special instruments are still blank in China. There are still many problems to be solved in the quality assurance of medium and low-end products.
Therefore, we must have a high degree of national strategic planning and strong support from relevant resources before we have the opportunity to continuously narrow the gap. If the testing instrument enterprise cannot achieve a relatively large scale, it is difficult to have the strength to compete with the international giants, and the early growth requires huge and long-term capital investment.
