Global Photoionization Detector Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A photoionization detector (PID) is a scientific instrument used to detect and measure the concentration of ions in a gas. The importance of PIDs is that they can be used to determine the purity of gases.

Below 10.6eV:

Below 10.6eV, it's usage.

The photoionization detector is a device that utilizes the principle of ionization by ultraviolet light to measure analytes in pharmaceuticals, foodstuffs, explosives & combustibles and other liquids.

Above 10.6eV:

The ionization of atoms and molecules can be detected by observing the light that is emitted when an electron is removed from a neutral atom or molecule. The higher the energy of the particle, generally, the shorter its wavelength and thus it can be detected easier. Ionization occurs due to collisions with particles or electromagnetic radiation in a way that electrons are forced out of their orbitals resulting in radiating more energy as light.

Ionizing radiation consists of alpha, beta,.

Application Insights:

The market is segmented by application into oil & gas, building and construction, medical devices, space applications and others. The oil & gas industry dominated the overall application segment with a share of over 30% in 2017. Photoionization detectors are used for various purposes in the oil and gas industry such as to monitor inventory levels; identify leaks from pipelines; track down criminals involved in drug or human trafficking who use the product for cover up activities; or to find out if there has been any illegal drilling activity on a particular property.

Building and construction was one of the fastest growing segments at an estimated CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing to rising demand for PID across several industries including energy generation plants, power lines maintenance etc. PIDs are also used extensively during site exploration activities where they help determine soil conditions deep below ground using x-rays that penetrate through solid rock layers.

Regional Analysis:

North America accounted for the largest revenue share in 2017. The region is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period owing to technological advancements and high ionization rate of gas in air. Europe was the second-largest market, accounting for a revenue share of more than 20% in 2017 due to increasing demand from building and construction sector as well as medical devices industry. Asia Pacific is projected to be one of the fastest-growing regions with a CAGR exceeding 6% during the forecast period owing to rising oil & gas exploration activities across countries such as China, India, South Korea, Japan and Australia.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for PID detectors in various industries such as oil and gas, chemical, pharmaceuticals, and food and beverage due to the advantages offered by these detectors over other types of detectors.
  • Growing awareness about the benefits of using PID detectors among process engineers and plant managers across different industries.
  • Technological advancements in PID detector technology that have resulted in better performance, accuracy, and reliability of these devices.
  • Rising demand for portable PID detectors owing to their ease of use and portability.
