Other factors driving growth in the metering or chemical injection pump market are stringent efficiency and environment related regulations; growth of water and wastewater treatment and oil & gas industries; and increased demand for automation of the processes.

The metering pump market is developing moderately due to its unaltered applications which make it a backbone of many processes across various industries.
