The chemical industry demands extremely high on all instruments used within the process. They are subject to strict international directives like the PED and ATEX. Electronic and mechanical measuring instruments for pressure, temperature and level are used for general applications and in hazardous areas. They must operate as satisfactorily in aggressive environments as in non-aggressive environments. To ensure long-term process safety under these difficult circumstances, regular calibration of the measuring instruments is recommended.
According to Brand Equity Foundation, The Indian chemicals industry stood at US$ 178 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach US$ 304 billion by 2025, registering a CAGR of 9.3% The Indian chemical industry is the sixth largest in the world, and the Indian market is widely recognized as the last big market that still has considerable headspace for growth.
