Digital Panel Meters Market: Precise Analysis on Business Overview, Product Scope & Development 2026
Posted: Jun 20, 2019
Digital panel meters are digital displays used to represent various parameters such as resistance, current or voltage in a digital format. The display gets the input measurement signal from a sensor which is then converted into a digital signal and presented on a display. The digital panel meter gets the input signal in many forms such as AC voltage, DC voltage, AC current, DC current, AC power, DC power, temperature, or resistance. These meters are widely used in electronics instruments especially in consumer electronics. There are various specifications considered while selecting a digital panel meter. Some of these specifications include number of digits, size, and color of the number to be displayed. Compared to analog meters, digital meters are preferred, as the numbers are directly shown on the display.
Further, digital panel meters are easy and convenient to operate and the data displayed is more accurate as compared to its analog versions. Market players are focused on providing customized products for the measurement and display of pressure, vibrations, voltage, time, and current.

Factors such as growing demand from consumer electronics industry, and built-in overload protection in the meters to protect devices from electric loads are anticipated to drive the digital panel meters market during the forecast period. LCD or LED displays are majorly preferred in the consumer electronics industry to display the numeric instead of gauge and needle with analog meters. Further, these meters also calculate the electrical consumption with absolute accuracy. Hence, manufacturing, healthcare, and pharmaceuticals industries are adopting digital panel meters at lucrative growth rate. However, digital panel meters are costlier than analog panel meters. Therefore, small and medium sized industries which are more cost sensitive usually opt for analog panel meters. This is expected to limit the growth of the digital panel meters market to a certain extent. Further, as compared to analog meters, digital panel meters are more complicated to install.
