Additionally, rising opportunities from emerging countries in the Asia-Pacific region is also expected to bode well for the future growth prospects of the marketplace.
Flow meters market continues its transition from the traditional to new high-technology meters. Driven by precision and reliability, new flow meters, especially ultrasonic and coriolis, are becoming extremely popular among the end-users.
