Global Level Gauge Market Research, 2031

The global level gauge market size was valued at $1.5 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $2.5 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2022 to 2031. Level gauge is a sensor or device that is used to measure the level of fluids or liquid in fields. A vertical chamber that houses the gauge is filled with fluid from the tank or vessel. The interface line between the vapor and liquid in the chamber determines the level of fluid in the chamber, which is equal to the fluid level in the tank. Level gauges are of various types, which include tank, fuel, water, and mechanical level gauges.

Global Level Gauge Market

The growth of oil & gas, chemical and water treatment industries and the solid industrial activity worldwide is providing lucrative opportunities in the market. The growth in adoption of automatic tank gauge systems has led to an increase in the use of level gauge systems, which is anticipated to drive the level gauge market's growth throughout the forecast period. Moreover, the high levels of accuracy in measuring components in pharmaceutical manufacture is likely result in increased demand in the pharmaceutical industry. These automated level gauges offer enhanced accuracy with real-time display and includes more advanced functions such as storage volume, and leak detection. Such factors accelerate the level gauge market growth.

Increase in investments in oil & gas, chemical, foods & beverages, energy power, and other industrial sectors in developing economies such as China, India, and the U.S. is expected to boost the demand for level gauge. In November 2021, Indian Oil Corporation (IOCL) announced plans to invest $ 495.22 million to set up India’s first mega-scale maleic anhydride unit for manufacturing high-value specialty chemicals at its Panipat Refinery in Haryana. This is expected to accelerate the demand for level gauges for chemical industry and hence is expected to drive the market growth.

Global Level Gauge Market by Type

On the basis of type, the tank level gauge segment generated highest revenue in 2021. Tank level gauge is widely used in industrial process applications and is employed to measure the fluid levels in drums, tanks, pressure vessels, or other similar applications. The oil and gas industry generally uses static volumetric assessments of the tank content. This involves level, temperature and pressure measurements. This is expected to boost growth of the level gauge market during the forecast period.

Global Level Gauge Market by End-user Industry

On the basis of end user industry, chemical segment has registered the highest-level gauge market share in terms of revenue in 2021. It allows to monitor the level in chemical storage application. Moreover, it is design for chemical and process tanks and recommended for virtually any fluid including viscous, aggressive and waste liquids. In addition, expansion of chemical industries around the world is providing lucrative growth opportunities for the level gauge market forecast period.

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) rapidly spread across various countries and regions in 2019, causing an enormous impact on the lives of people and the overall community. It began as a human health condition and has now become a significant threat to global trade, economy, and finance. The COVID-19 pandemic halted production of many products in the level gauge industry, owing to lockdowns. Furthermore, the number of COVID-19 cases is expected to reduce in the future with the introduction of the vaccine for COVID-19 on the market. This has led to the reopening of level gauge companies at their full-scale capacities. This is expected to help the market recover by the end of 2022. After COVID-19 infection cases begin to decline, level gauge manufacturers must focus on protecting their staff, operations, and supply networks to respond to urgent emergencies and establish new methods of working.

Global Level Gauge Market by Region

Europe dominated the market in 2021, accounting for the highest share in the global market. This is attributed due to ongoing investment in chemical, water treatment, marine and foods & beverages sectors in Germany, Spain and UK. Furthermore, Asia-Pacific is projected to witness increase in adoption of level gauge during the forecast period due to development chemical and petrochemical and oil & gas industries.

The global level gauge market is segmented into Type, Technology and End-user Industry. By type, the market is categorized into tank level gauges, fuel level gauges, water level gauges, and mechanical level gauges. Depending on capacity, it is fragmented into magnetic, reflexive, transparent, and others. On the basis of end user industry, it is classified into oil and gas, chemical, water treatment, marine, and others. Region wise, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
