A particle counter is an instrument that detects & counts physical particles. It is a useful tool for monitoring indoor air quality (IAQ) in clean rooms & workplaces. It is available in three categories liquid, aerosol, and solid. It measures the concentration of particles in the air. Its nature is based upon light obscuration, light scattering, or direct imaging.
According to study, “Global Particle Counters Market 2019 by Manufacturers, Regions, Type and Application, Forecast to 2024” the key companies operating in the global particle counters market are Climet Instruments Company, Particle Measuring Systems Inc. (A Spectris Company), HCT Instruments, Lighthouse Worldwide Solutions Inc., Spectro Scientific, Rion Co, Ltd., Kanomax Inc., Beckman Coulter, Grimm Aerosol Technik, TSI Inc., EMD Millipore, Setra Systems, PAMAS, Chemtrac, STAUFF, Honri, Suzhou Sujing, Met One Instruments Inc., HAL Technology, Particle Plus Inc., Veltek Associates Inc., Graywolf Sensing Solutions, HYDAC International, Extech Instruments, Fluke Corporation, PCE Instruments UK Ltd., Palas GmbH.
Based on type, particle counters market is segmented into liquid particle counters and airborne particle counters. Liquid particle counters are further sub-segmented into offline liquid particle counters and online/inline liquid particle counter. Airborne particle counters are further sub-segmented into handheld particle counters, portable particle counter, condensation/ultrafine particle counters and remote particle counters. Airborne particle counter segment dominate the market owing to and the growth in stringency of air pollution monitoring and rise in use of particle counters for cleanroom monitoring. Based on application, market is segmented into aerosol monitoring & research, contamination monitoring of liquids, cleanroom monitoring, indoor air quality monitoring, drinking water contamination monitoring, chemical contamination monitoring and other applications (atmospheric & climate research, combustion & engine research, particle formation & growth studies, operating room monitoring, inhalation toxicology research, air curtain monitoring, duct leakage testing and HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) troubleshooting). In addition, based on end-user, market is segmented into semiconductor industry, life sciences & medical device industry, aerospace industry, automotive industry, food & beverage industry and other end-users (cosmetics industry, research centers, military, hospitals, and universities).
The particle counters market is driven by growth in focus on the quality of food products, followed by rise in favorable regulatory scenario, growth in spending on pharmaceutical research & development (R&D), increase in semiconductor & automotive industries, growth in pharmaceutical & biotechnology industries and increase in demand for liquid particle counters in the field of waste & process water to determine the quality of water, along with rise in demand for detection of the particle sizes in water treatment plants. However, technical limitations of particle counters and high cost of particle counters may impact the counter. Moreover, increase in employment of particle counters for air pollution monitoring is a key opportunity for market.
Based on geography, the North-American region holds the prominent share of the particle counter market owing to rise in presence of the pharmaceutical sector and growth in technological improvements in the region. Whereas, the Asian-Pacific and European regions are anticipated to witness highest growth rate due to increase in demand for liquid particle counters in the oil & gas industry and presence of well-developed pharmaceutical & healthcare sector over the forecast period. In upcoming years, it is estimated that the global market will be reached at rapid pace on account of growth in manufacturing industries and rise in concerns about environmental monitoring & food safety during the forecast period.
