What is the instrumentation industry and how does it affect the common man?

Instrumentation is a large spectrum industry and encompasses all spheres of human life via Medical diagnostics, condition and environment monitoring to process control. 

Instrumentation is required for measurement, control and analysis of various parameters which directly or indirectly affects us and our activities.

Instrumentation helps us to test, measure and control parameters and in fact acts as a catalyst to development process.

This industry is actually dependant on the progress of other industries.  Positive growth in the economy will bring growth in this sector.

Demand for Civil Engineering Instruments is determined by two major facts  – either legislation or productivity.

To the extent that quality is related to productivity, the increased demand for quality that is being felt in the Indian market place because of globalisation as never before, is pushing this market to a new high.

With international barriers getting eroded, and the emerging convergence of economies, international legislation is coming to India but the real impact of this is yet to be felt as it is related to aspects of our legal system reform which will take time to give the necessary “teeth” to our legislative processes.  Once this happens there is no looking back.
