Global Sphere Spectrophotometers Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A sphere spectrophotometer is an instrument used to measure the spectral reflectance or transmittance of a surface. The device is typically a hemisphere that surrounds the object being measured and collects data from all angles. This information can be used to create a three-dimensional map of the object's spectral properties. Sphere spectrophotometers are often used in research and development for characterizing new materials or products.

Portable Sphere Spectrophotometers:

Portable sphere spectrophotometers are instruments that measure the intensity of light, and its color, by using a rotating colored ball inside a transparent sphere. The instrument is used to measure the intensity of light in various spectral regions from UV through visible range. It's main applications are in research institutes for testing different materials and their reactions; it also has wide industrial applications for quality control of products manufactured with LED or other artificial lighting source.

Bench-top Sphere Spectrophotometers:

Bench-top sphere spectrophotometers are used to measure the light intensity of a particular color. It is one of the most common methods used in science for testing the color capabilities of an object. The method works on the basis that if two objects have similar colors, then they will have similar temperatures.

The bench-top spectrophotometer consists of a source which emits light and an optical instrument which absorbs all wavelengths.

Application Insights:

The global market is segmented by application into paint & coating, textile & apparel, plastic, printing & packing and others. The other applications include food testing and medical diagnostics. The paint & coating segment dominated the overall industry in terms of revenue in 2017 owing to increasing demand for automotive paints and coatings across the globe. Automotive manufacturers are focusing on improving their business outlook by enhancing their product range which is also likely to boost the growth of this segment over the forecast period.

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 activities and technological advancements in this region.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to grow at a lucrative rate over the forecast period owing to increasing foreign direct investments (FDI)s in emerging economies such as India and China among others due to availability of skilled labor at low cost along with easy access of raw materials required for manufacturing products coupled with favorable government policies regarding FDI s  involving sectors like textiles & clothing, printing & packaging among others have emerged as major driving factors for growth over past few years.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for spectrophotometers in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries for drug discovery and development.
  • Growing demand from academic research institutes for spectrophotometers to carry out research on new drugs, therapies, and treatments.
  • Rising use of spectrophotometers in food and beverage testing laboratories to ensure product quality control.
  • Increasing adoption of portable spectrophotometers in field applications such as environmental monitoring, forensics, and homeland security.
