Spectrometers and Spectrophoto/Fluorometers: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Spectroscopic instruments have become crucial for laboratory settings, and find use in carrying out diverse tasks such as monitoring processes, identifying compounds, and elucidating chemical structures. Spectroscopy has exhibited resilience to economic adversities over the years, largely due to the increasing scientific needs of varied application areas. The only exception was in 2009, when sales declined owing to the global economic crisis. However, the market recovered in 2010 and witnessed strong resurgence in 2011, driven by rising sales of spectroscopy instruments led by the increased purchases of instrument system by laboratories. In the long run, demand from industries such as metals, chemicals and automotive is expected to continue driving growth in the spectroscopy market. Further, advancements in the areas of drug discovery and development, metabolomics, pharmacogenomics, and expanded application markets bode well for the future of spectroscopy market. Demand is also expected from security and defense industries; research targeted at discovery and use of new materials as well as continued growth in applications suitable for use in the life sciences market.

As stated by the new market research report on Spectrometers and Spectrophoto/Fluorometers, developed markets such as the United States, Europe and Japan account for a predominant share of the worldwide market. Government stimulus programs have also contributed considerably to the growth in the spectroscopy market. In developed regions, demand would be largely driven by the advent of portable, sturdy and affordable spectrometers, which feature advanced technologies such as spectral bandwidth and operation frequency range. Advanced spectrometers are aimed at addressing the emerging demands of areas such as mineralogy, medicine, environment, pharmaceuticals and biochemistry. Despite the continued dominance of developed regions, emerging economies specifically in Asia-Pacific, such as India and China, and Latin America are expected to offer newer opportunities owing to the different economics as well as application needs.

Molecular Spectroscopy represents the largest product category in the global Spectrometers and Spectrophoto/Fluorometers market. The segment is expected to post modest growth in the coming years driven primarily by the sustained adoption and demand for handheld instruments across various market segments. The US represents the single largest market for molecular spectroscopy. Atomic Spectroscopy, another major segment, is expected to benefit from the growing demand from X-ray and life science industries. The most widely deployed devices within the atomic spectroscopy market include XRF (X-ray fluorescence) and XRD (X-ray diffraction). Mass Spectrometry (MS) represents the fastest growing product segment in the global Spectrometers and Spectrophoto/Fluorometers market. Increasing developments in the areas of medical research, environment and food safety are expected to bolster MS market. Advent of technologically advanced products and the growing need to replace existing or obsolete systems also presence potential opportunities for the MS market.

Global spectrometry market is both concentrated and fragmented because of the diversity of technologies.
