Flow meter Industry development constraints

Flow meter Industry development constraints

1.Favorable factors

The instrumentation industry is a key industry in the field of automation. In the past few years, with the continuous development of China’s automation application environment, the appearance of the instrumentation industry has changed with each passing day. At present, the instrumentation industry is facing a new period of development, and the implementation of the “12th Five-Year Development Plan for the Instrumentation Industry” undoubtedly has important guiding significance for the future development of the industry.

The plan shows that in 2015, the total output value of the industry will reach or approach one trillion yuan, with an average annual growth rate of about 15%; exports will exceed 30 billion US dollars, of which domestic enterprises’ exports will account for more than 50%. Or the trade deficit began to decline at the beginning of the “13th Five-Year Plan”; actively cultivate the three industrial clusters of the Yangtze River Delta, Chongqing and the Bohai Rim, and form 3 to 5 enterprises with over 10 billion yuan, and more than 100 enterprises with sales exceeding 1 billion yuan.

During the “Twelfth Five-Year Plan” period, my country’s instrumentation industry will focus on the needs of major national projects, strategic emerging industries and people’s livelihood, and accelerate the development of advanced automatic control systems, large-scale precision testing equipment, new instruments and sensors. According to the “Plan”, in the next five years, the whole industry will aim at the mid-to-high-end product market, vigorously strengthen the design, manufacturing and quality inspection capabilities, so that the stability and reliability of domestic products will be greatly improved; aiming at national major projects and strategic Emerging industries, expand the industry’s service area from traditional fields to multiple emerging fields; vigorously promote corporate restructuring, and strive to build a number of “over 10 billion” leading enterprises and form a group of backbone enterprises with international competitiveness; The continuous advancement and long-term investment of the achieved results, the continuous accumulation of core technologies, and the formation of a sustainable development mechanism for the industry.

In addition, the “Decision of the State Council on Accelerating the Cultivation and Development of Strategic Emerging Industries” clarified that advanced environmental protection technology equipment and products should be promoted in the energy-saving and environmental protection industry, and the construction of a market-oriented energy-saving and environmental protection service system should be promoted. In the industry, promote the research and development and industrialization of smart terminals. It can be seen that the policy environment is good for the smart power test instrument industry.


my country’s power testing instrumentation industry has formed a relatively rich product line, and sales are also increasing, but there are still various difficulties in the development of the industry. The products of foreign giants are mature and the market competition is fierce. Domestic smart power meter companies are facing double competition from domestic and foreign companies. What factors are restricting the development of my country’s instrumentation industry?

2.1 Product standards need to be improved and unified

Since the smart power test instrument industry is an emerging industry in my country, the development time is relatively short, and it is in the transitional stage from growth to rapid development. Domestic manufacturers are relatively scattered, and due to the limitations of different users and different power distribution system requirements, the product standards for smart power meters introduced in my country cannot meet the requirements of the industry in terms of design, production, and acceptance. The smooth development of instrumentation brings certain pressure.

2.2 Slow improvement of innovation capability

At present, most of my country’s advanced testing instruments and meters rely on imports, but the most advanced foreign testing instruments and meters are generally developed in laboratories and cannot be purchased on the market. If you want to carry out first-class scientific and technological innovation activities, you will be more or less limited by technology.

2.3 Enterprise scale and quality restrict the development of the industry

Although testing instruments and meters have achieved high-level development, due to the impact of “GDP”, small-scale enterprises pursue economic benefits, and neglect product technology innovation and product quality, resulting in unhealthy development. At the same time, there are many small and medium-sized enterprises, and the level of production technology is uneven. Large foreign manufacturers use China as the processing base for their products, but there are some medium, low and crowded phenomena in our country, which restricts the development of the industry.

2.4 Lack of high-end talents

In recent years, domestic testing instrument companies have developed rapidly, but foreign testing instrument companies have developed faster. In contrast, the absolute gap between domestic and foreign testing instrument companies is getting bigger and bigger. The reason is that most of the talents in the testing instrument industry in my country are cultivated by local enterprises. They lack the experience of senior managers and project managers of large foreign instrument companies, and it is difficult to control the external market environment.

On the basis of the above, in order to improve product quality, major test instrument manufacturers are actively developing high-precision measurement technology with high reliability. Especially in recent years, with the implementation of various standards, the improvement of the measuring instrument management system is imminent. Both users and manufacturers attach great importance to the maintenance of instruments, but judging from the current development of the industry, there are still some problems. In order to further understand the ideas of users, our department has collected opinions and believes that industry standards restrict development. The proportion is 43%; 43% think that technical support restricts the development of the industry; 17% think that the policy attention is not enough, which restricts the development of the industry; 97% think that product quality restricts the development of the industry; market sales 21% restricted the development of the industry; 33% believed that market services restricted the development of the industry; 62% believed that after-sales restricted the development of the industry.
