Global Optical Spectrometers Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

An optical spectrometer is a scientific instrument used to measure the spectral composition of light, typically in the visible and ultraviolet regions. Optical spectrometers are used for a variety of purposes, including determining the elemental or molecular composition of substances, measuring physical properties of objects such as temperature and pressure, and detecting gas concentrations.

UV-Visible Optical Spectrometer:

UV-Visible Optical Spectrometer, also known as UV/Vis absorption spectrometer or visual spectrophotometer, is a device that allows the measurement of light intensity in the visible part of the electromagnetic spectrum. It does so by detecting and analyzing how much energy from a source is absorbed by a sample placed between two transparent plates.

IR Optical Spectrometer:

An IR optical spectrometer is an instrument used for measuring the intensity of infrared light, and it's used in other instruments as well. It can be defined as a device that analyzes the molecular or atomic contents of gases or liquids by detecting their absorption and re-radiation of infrared radiation. The most commonly IR optical spectrometers are those which are based on thermal analysis principle; however, there are also some other types which use electrochemical analysis principles.

Application Insights:

The other application segment includes environmental, chemical, and security applications. The optical spectrometers find extensive use in the aforementioned fields owing to their ability to measure small wavelength differences. For instance, they are used for analyzing air pollutants and identifying specific gases present in an atmosphere. They are also used extensively in the field of security as they provide solutions for a variety of problems such as identification and authentication of documents based on their unique spectral characteristics. This is likely to drive demand over the forecast period.

The agricultural sector accounted for more than 25% market share by revenue in 2017 due to its wide-spread usage across various applications such as soil analysis, plant health analysis, water & nutrient uptake into plants through roots & leaves analysis etcetera. Furthermore, it helps analyze data from drones that deliver fertilizers during crop growth which further propels its demand globally over the forecast period (2018-2030).

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to maintain its position during the forecast period. This can be attributed to increasing R&D investments and technological advancements in this region. Moreover, growing demand for high-quality food products is anticipated to drive the regional market over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific spectrometers market is expected to grow at a lucrative rate over the forecast period owing to increasing research activities and an increase in funding by government organizations, such as Department of Science & Technology (DST) of India and Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR). In addition, rising awareness about health benefits associated withoptical devices used for spectroscopy has ledto an increase inthe adoptionof these systemsin this region.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for optical spectrometers in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries for drug discovery and development.
  • Growing demand from the food and beverage industry for quality control and analysis of food ingredients.
  • Rising use of optical spectrometers in research institutes and universities for advanced scientific research.
  • Increasing adoption of optical spectrometers in process control applications across various industries.
  • Technological advancements that have led to the development of miniaturized optical spectrometers with enhanced performance characteristics are expected to fuel market growth over the forecast period
