Moisture Analyzer Market by Analyzing Technique (Karl Fischer Titration, Loss-on-Drying, Capacitance, Microwave, Drying Oven, Near-Infrared, Radio Frequency), Equipment Type (Desktop, Handheld, In-Line), Vertical, and Geography - Global Forecast to 2022

“Increasing demand from traditional as well as new verticals and rapid adoption in Asia are driving the moisture analyzer market”

The moisture analyzer market is expected to grow from USD 1.15 billion in 2016 to USD 1.41 billion by 2022 at a CAGR of 3.3% between 2017 and 2022. This growth can be attributed to the increasing demand from traditional as well as new verticals and rapid adoption in Asia. However, the lack of highly skilled staff restricts the growth of the moisture analyzer market in the long term.

“During the forecast period, food and beverage, and pharmaceuticals are expected to be the fastest-growing verticals of the moisture analyzer market”

The moisture analyzer market for the food and beverage vertical expected to grow at the highest rate between 2017 and 2022. The increasing demand for packaged food is generating huge demand for moisture analysis in end products before packaging to increase the shelf life and enhance the product quality. The market for the pharmaceuticals vertical is expected to grow second-fastest during the forecast period. The extremely accurate feature provided by moisture analyzers can decrease the operating costs and boost the asset value by increasing the ultimate product quality and reducing the wastage that can be caused by unmet stringent quality norms made by the government for the pharmacy industry.

“The loss-on-drying analyzing technique held the largest market share in 2016 and is expected to be the dominant market of moisture analyzers by 2022”

The loss-on-drying technique held the largest share of the moisture analyzer market in 2016. This can be attributed to the fact that loss-on-drying is the most widely adopted traditional technology because of its high level of accuracy and fast moisture detection technique. The technique still has a high penetration rate in almost all the industry verticals.

“The in-line equipment expected to be the fastest-growing equipment type of moisture analyzer during the forecast period”

The moisture analyzer market for the in-line equipment type expected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period. This is mainly because of the growing process automation for manufacturing of products in various industry verticals, which is ultimately generating the requirement of moisture analysis during the production process.

“The Americas is the largest shareholder, whereas APAC would be the fastest-growing region of the moisture analyzer market during the forecast period”

The Americas held the largest share of the moisture analyzer market in 2016, as it is home to several moisture analyzer manufacturers, along with industries such as food and beverages, and pharmaceuticals, which are the major consumers of this equipment. However, the APAC market is expected to grow at the highest rate between 2017 and 2022. The ongoing industrial development, rising awareness about the benefits of process automation, environmental concerns, and government programs in the developing countries of APAC such as China and India to promote green initiatives that help in reducing pollution are the major drivers for the growth of the market in APAC.

The moisture analyzer market is expected to grow from USD 1.15 Billion in 2016 to USD 1.41 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 3.3% between 2017 and 2022. The moisture analyzer market is mainly driven by factors such as increasing demand from traditional as well as new verticals and rapid adoption in Asia.

The moisture analyzer market is segmented on the basis of analyzing techniques, which include Karl Fischer titration, loss-on-drying, capacitance, microwave, drying oven, near infra-red, radio frequency and others. Among these techniques, the market for near-infrared (NIR) technique is expected to grow at the fastest rate between 2017 and 2022. This is mainly because NIR analyzers provide the opportunity to measure moisture content in the product during the manufacturing process. With the growing process automation in various industries, the demand for in-line moisture analysis is growing, and NIR analyzers are the best fit for the continuous analysis of moisture during the product manufacturing process.

The moisture analyzer market segmented on the basis of equipment types such as desktop-mounted, handheld, and in-line. The market for the in-line equipment type will grow at the fastest rate among others during the forecast period. This is mainly because of the growing process automation for manufacturing of products in various industry verticals, which is ultimately generating the requirement of moisture analysis during the production process. The in-line moisture analyzers can be mounted on production belts for continuous detection of the moisture content level in the produced material for quality check and to make possible changes based on the measurement to ensure high-quality end products.

The food and beverage vertical accounted for the largest share of the overall moisture analyzer market in 2016 and will grow fastest among others during the forecast period. This huge demand from the food and beverage vertical can be attributed to the stringent government regulations for maintaining the high quality of edible products by maintaining the moisture content in the product at the desired level. The pharmaceuticals vertical is expected to be the second-fastest market for moisture analyzers closely followed by water treatment and biomass vertical.

The moisture analyzer market has also been broadly classified on the basis of geography into the Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), and Rest of the World (RoW). The APAC region will grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. This is due to the ongoing industrial development, rising awareness about the benefits of process automation, environmental concerns, and government programs in the developing countries of APAC such as China and India to promote green initiatives that help in reducing pollution.

The stability and reliability issues of moisture analyzers inhibit the market growth. Furthermore, for the moisture analyzer market, the lack of highly skilled staff is a major challenge and expected to remain in the near future. However, factors such as the growing process automation leading to the high demand for in-line moisture analyzers and technological advancements resulting in more reliable heat-based moisture analyzing can generate significant opportunities for this market.

Some key players in the moisture analyzer market are PCE Instruments (Germany), Michell Instruments Inc. (England), Ametek Inc. (US), SpectraSesnsors Inc. (US), General Electric Co. (US), A&D Co., Ltd. (Japan), Kett Electric Laboratory (Japan), Mettler-Toledo International Inc. (US), Sartorius AG (Germany), Shimadzu Corp. (Japan), Gow-Mac Instrument Co.
