The global digital panel meter market size was valued at USD 3.12 billion in 2021. The market is projected to grow from USD 3.39 billion in 2022 to USD 4.84 billion by 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period. The global COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented and staggering, with digital panel meter experiencing lower-than-anticipated demand across all regions compared to pre-pandemic levels. Based on our analysis, the global digital panel meter market exhibited a slow growth of 4.7% in 2020 as compared to 2019.

Panel meters display an input signal in analog or digital form. Most panel meters include alarm options and can transfer data to a server. Voltage measurements are taken across the line while current measurements are taken in series with the load, sometimes using shunts or current transformers when the load current exceeds a 10 Ampere overload protection device. When used in such applications, they are called Motor Protection Circuit Breakers (MCPs). These meters offer the highest resolution among different panel meters. Digital gauges provide a more readable display, especially in low light conditions, and deliver better resolution. Digital meters may offer superior functionality. They can be reconfigured to read various parameters such as current, voltage, temperature, and others.


Supply Chain Disruptions during COVID-19 Pandemic Increased Costs and Reduced Demand

The outbreak of COVID-19 caused widespread disruptions in the supply chain for various critical raw materials used in manufacturing digital panel meters. The manufacturers generally assemble parts such as hole printed circuit boards, chips, electrolytic capacitors, metal film resistors, leakage, switching transistors, Zener diodes, and transformers. Most of these parts are manufactured in China and other Asian countries, which were affected by the extremely contagious COVID-19. The trade routes from these countries were also affected, causing a delay in manufacturing digital panels. This ultimately led to a massive rise in the production costs of the meters affecting their demand. Furthermore, the global halt in industrial activities added to the reduction in order.

High Adoption of Digitization across Industries is a Vital Trend

With rising adoption of technological development and automation, many industries are adopting new technologies to smoothen their workflow process. Moreover, manufacturers continuously improve their products with techniques such as AI, machine learning, and IoT to connect easily. For instance, in April 2022, Yokogawa Electric Corporation announced the release of its Equipment/Quality Predictive Detection Tool. This AI-based tool is an addition to the OpreX Data Acquisition family. It was developed for building equipment and quality anomaly predictive detection systems for paperless recorders and data loggers. This tool was created to help companies improve production efficiency by identifying equipment defects early.

New Technological Advancements in Digital Panel Meters will Favor the Market Growth

Rising technological advancements are anticipated to enhance the digital panel meter market growth. Digital panel meters are available in different screen sizes and colors, such as red, green, amber, blue, yellow, orange, and aqua, easily recognized in low light. Moreover, they have various features such as an alarm, adjustment display, set point option, extra channels, and USB ports to the equipment or device. Furthermore, there is rising adoption of Multi-Channel Indicator and Scanner. It is extensively installed for sensing, indicating the system's different parameters. It might have in-built alarms to alert in case of fluctuations beyond the set range in the output signals. In June 2019, Trumeter announced the launch of a single, split, and three-phase digital APM power meter having features such as a color-changing display, Modbus connectivity, and compact size. This product launch is anticipated to surge the demand for digital panel meters over the market forecast period.


Rising Industrialization to Propel the Market Growth

Digital meters are widely used in multiple end-user industries to measure voltage temperature, pressure, flow, and speed. Industries prefer digital meters as they show accurate and fast indications and reduce errors. Owing to these features, the global market for digital panel meter is anticipated to grow. In addition, it is also used for oven temperature monitoring, motor current monitoring, cooling water temperature, water flow, exhaust temperature in an engine dyno cell, welding current, liquid level measurement, and humidity measurement. Additionally, digital panels are used in major industries such as power generation, food & beverages, wastewater plants, oil and gas, bioprocess, drug manufacturing, and automotive. Hence, their wide usage for accurate measurements of multiple parameters in diverse processes and industries increases their demand. According to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, FDI investments in Asia Pacific’s developing countries reached USD 619 billion in 2021. The growing industrial development projects in the region is the key factor for the high FDI inflow in the region.

Rising Adoption of Digital Panel in Consumer Electronics Boosts the Market

Digital panel meters are commonly used in all electronic appliances such as a microwave oven's instrument panel that contains panel meters that measure weight, time, and power. A water pump uses a pressure gauge panel meter and a motor RPM panel meter to control water flow in a tank or swimming pool. Furthermore, digital meters are also used in the car and sports bikes to convert motion into digital indications such as speed, total kilometers, service indicators, RPM, and fuel indication with a channel screen. They are widely used in medical devices, such as glucometers, digital thermometers, and oximeters, which indicate various parameters such as sugar level, heart rate, and blood pressure. The wide range of applications of digital panel meters in consumer electronics, coupled with massive growth in consumer electronics globally, provides opportunities for market growth.


Technical Challenges Restrain the Market Growth

Since the devices are digital, it is difficult for them to adjust tuning circuit and responses. A significant challenge for digital meters is the dependence on batteries. LCD and LED display panel meters also depend on a battery or external power source. When a battery is deficient, the display indication will be dim. These meters also have voltage limitations. If the user goes beyond this range, the meter will be damaged and difficult to repair. Generally, the measurement is accurate, but when the conditions are not suitable, such as high heat generated by equipment, it shows an error in indication.

Additionally, the sensitivity issue of the meters is also problematic. Moreover, digital meters are costlier compared to analog meters. Due to these factors, the market is likely to grow at a slower pace.
