A recently published market research study by Future Market Insights, forecasts global demand for spectroscopy equipment and supplies will total US$ 17.1 Billion in 2019, representing a robust year-on-year growth rate of 6.4 percent. The demand will further rise to US$ 28.8 Billion in 2027. FMI, in its report, projects a robust demand for spectroscopy equipment and supplies, in the coming years, supported by technological advancements in spectroscopy equipment, increased adoption in healthcare and food safety industry, and growing digitization in laboratories—further supporting the automation trend. While healthcare application of spectroscopy equipment and supplies continue to generate maximum revenue, the demand for spectroscopy equipment and supplies has further spread to pharmaceutical, food safety testing, and drug development sectors, in order to enhance productivity and capabilities of analytical operation.
Portable Infrared Sensing Spectrometry Equipment Holds Promising Potential
Although infrared (IR) sensing have been widely used in detection and analysis applications, including fuel and oil analysis, food safety, flame and gas detection, and gesture sensor, it is only recently portable analyzers equipped with IR sensing technology have been fully utilized in outdoor setting, in filed, rather than a laboratory setup for spectrometry applications. Various portable spectrometry application include assessing oil in ship engines while on the move and in food safety to detect contamination, adulteration, and presence of additives in products such as oils, fruit juices, and milk. FMI indicates promising future for portable IR sensor-based spectrometry and its application in diverse industries including healthcare, pharmaceutical, IoT, and environmental monitoring. Equipment designers and core sensing technology suppliers are manufacturing compact, robust, and low-power portable IR sensor-based spectrometry to address the technological challenges associated with such equipment. It is also estimated that mid-IR sensors are optimal for food safety and fuel and oil applications.
