India Hydrological and Meteorological Equipment Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% from 2020-2030

Demand for hydrological and meteorological equipment in India is set to grow at over 5% in 2021, with growing applications in disaster management likely to create opportunities. A new report by FMI opines demand for hydrological and meteorological in India to be worth nearly US$ 100 Mn by 2030-end.

Current meters, rain gauge, disdrometer, compact bubblers and data loggers are a few hydrological and meteorological equipment. Rising need for regular weather monitoring to set disaster management in motion is expected to drive the hydrological and meteorological market in India.

Key Takeaways

  • The hydrological and meteorological equipment market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% from 2020-2030.
  • Global revenues are set to reach nearly US$ 100 mn by the end of 2030
  • AT/RH sensors demand is growing due to their high accuracy and remote monitoring feature.
  • Research Institutes and Laboratories remain key revenue generators for manufacturers.

“Increasing climatic changes have created lucrative opportunities for the manufacturers as more end users are being compelled to make use of hydrological and meteorological equipments to get accurate weather predictions,” says an FMI analyst.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted industries all over the world, including the hydrological and meteorological equipment market in India. The sudden implementation of lockdown in India had brought production and import of raw materials to a standstill. The transport ban has also brought distribution and sales to a halt.

The market is expected to bounce back in 2021 due to the necessary need for weather prediction for disaster management, especially in the defense sector, where this information is critical.

Who is Winning?

Market players are now focusing on creating innovative and advanced equipment to ensure better accuracy of readings. Advancements of sensors and monitoring devices has enabled measuring of density and temperature pressure in real time.

  • In 2018, the Weather Company and IBM joined forces to launch the weather channel app to provide better weather forecast to make business plans accordingly.
  • In October 2020, the Indian Defense sector bought weather equipment to read forecasts and prepare accordingly for the troops in high-altitude regions.

Some of the key players in the Indian hydrological and meteorological equipment market are Aeron Systems, Info-Electronics, Concord Instruments, SGS Weather and Environmental Systems, Dynalab, Elron Instrument Co. Ltd. and Virtual Electronics Company.
