Global Mass Flow Controller Market Overview


Mass Flow Controller Market Size was valued at USD 1.27 Billion in 2022. The Mass Flow Controller industry is projected to grow from USD 1.35 Billion in 2023 to USD 1.95 Billion by 2030, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.54% during the forecast period (2023 - 2030). Flows of Mass Controllers regulate the amount of liquid that flows from a siphon, line, supply, or tank. They have electronic sensors that react to the mass flow and provide an electrical message to operate an engine or other device that controls the flow. Mass Flow Controllers (MFCs) are classified into electromagnetic and water-powered variants. The market is expected to grow at a rapid pace throughout the forecasted time frame, owing to the increased use of these devices in industries like oil and gas. The market will grow due to their applications in water and wastewater therapy, medications and clinical medicines, the food sector, marine design enterprises, such as hydroponics production, and so on.
