colorimeter market share by region pr

Colorimeters are in demand for the study of materials, such as consumer electronics, vehicles, food items, and plastics in which colours are among the crucial parameters. In addition, the need for conducting constant environmental analysis, which includes water quality and analysis of soil components, has been on the rise, as factors such as global warming and pollution are affecting the quality of natural content. As a result, colorimeters are gaining significant traction among researchers, scientists and laboratory experts for the testing of environmental factors.

Lucrative Growth Opportunities in North America & East Asia

Regions such as North America & East Asia are anticipated to hold significant share in the colorimeter market in terms of value. In East Asia, China will continue to offer greater opportunities for the colorimeter market players, in the view of rapidly expanding water utilities and food & beverage industries to sustain the needs of growing populace. Some macroeconomic factors such as increasing contribution of water utilities towards GDP growth, heavy investments in research and development, significant growth of end-use industries, and strong presence of manufacturers in the region are also playing a role in shaping the market for colorimeters. In sequence, the analytical testing instruments manufacturing industry of East Asia is gaining substantial and positive momentum, which is forecasted to drive the growth of the colorimeter market in East Asia.

There are stricter regulations for water utilities for environmental monitoring in North American countries, especially in the US. Therefore, the demand for colorimeters is expected to increase considerably during the forecast period, at a significant CAGR.
