Asia-Pacific to become largest flowmeter market in 2013

Emerging Asian economies present an attractive destination for established flowmeter suppliers to set up manufacturing and sales bases, according to IMS Research.

Here they will come across companies with varying attitudes to pricing, with some happily settling for low-cost products from local suppliers, ultimately sacrificing quality. Because flowmeter products are generally viewed as commodity items by these types of end-users, it is unlikely that major flowmeter and instrumentation suppliers will gain an advantage by selling to this market, which would entail a loss of profit margin for their more sophisticated product offerings.


But as China and India begin to realize the benefits of investing in more efficient flowmeters, these more advanced products are sure to drive growth of the flowmeter market in the region.

I don't understand the point of this article. Of course better flowmeters make a difference in chip manufacturing, but how much vs. price? What is the market shakeout for these products? Is there some reason why the Chinese market cannot provide the product needed at a superior price/performance point, given their MEMS and hotwire capabilities?
