The Shift From Lab to Process Quality Control Analysis Drives Market Growth
This Frost & Sullivan research service on the analysis of the global process analytical instrumentation market provides detailed market forecasts, drivers and restraints, as well as market shares and competitive analyses of participants from 2014 to 2024. It covers the various types of analytical instruments, including process gas chromatographs, process spectrometers, process gas analyzers, process liquid analyzers, and Tunable Diode Laser Spectroscopy (TDLS). Revenue forecasts have been provided for each of the above mentioned product segments from 2018-2024. Market share analysis is performed at the total market level and at each product level. The global process analytical instruments market generated $2,629.9 million in 2017, with a base year growth rate of 4.5%. The market is set to grow further, as the need for online analysis is increasing. TDLS is expected to grow the fastest with its low cost and ease-of-use capabilities.
The regional scope is:
North America: Canada and the United States
Europe: Western Europe, Central Europe, Russia, and Eastern Europe
APAC: Western rim of the Pacific Ocean, the Indochina Peninsula, the Pacific Islands, and Central Asia
Developing Countries: Central America, South America, Mexico, the Middle East, and Africa
Some of the key drivers bolstering market growth include:
Quality control in manufacturing locations
Technological advancements in sample preparation
Personnel safety in chemical industries
Government initiatives for healthcare and infrastructure
On the other hand, there are few restraints impacting market growth. They include:
Lack of Capital Expenditure (CAPEX)
High maintenance cost
Key forecast assumptions are as follows:
Infrastructure growth in developing countries boost sales.
The need for low cost of products and low maintenance is driving the need for TDLS.
Future-proof instrumentation is key and research indicates that any instrument should have the option to be upgraded with software and hardware wherever applicable for future expansion.
Manufacturing is also being promoted in North America and although this might hinder growth in APAC, manufacturing bases are now located across the globe, creating opportunity for process analytical instruments.
