Process Control Instrument Manufacturers

Overview

The 760 process control instrument manufacturers in the US produce instruments and devices for measuring, displaying, recording, transmitting, and controlling industrial process variables such as temperature, pressure, flow, viscosity, and concentration. Customers are wide ranging but include manufacturers, distributors, utilities, natural resource extractors, military, and equipment repair services.

Dependence on International Trade

US process control instrument manufacturers are highly dependent on sales to foreign manufacturing markets, which exposes them to foreign currency exchange risks and trade tensions between countries.

Product Obsolescence

The industry rapidly introduces new and improved process control instruments and related technology and services that render older products less effective or obsolete.
