pH meter sales are likely to exceed the valuation of US$ 2 billion by the end of 2027, as indicated by a new study of Future Market Insights.
Portable and Benchtop pH Meter Witnessing High Demand for Wide-ranging Applications
The pH meter market is expected to register a high CAGR during the forecast period due to the availability of portable and benchtop pH meters, which are used to determine the alkalinity or acidity (pH) of a sample. Portable as well as benchtop pH meters are widely used in household, industrial, and scientific applications.
Moreover, growing popularity of portable and benchtop pH meters across various industrial sectors, such as pharmaceutical, water treatment, oil & gas, power industries, food & beverages, and mining, is expected to contribute to the growth of the global pH meter market during the forecast period 2019-2027.
Increasing Importance of pH Meters in Bacterial Screening of Whole Blood Platelets to Fuel Market Growth
The presence of bacterial infection in blood samples is a primary cause of transfusion-related mortality and morbidity. Hence, blood transfusion facilities need to employ systems to detect the bacteria in Platelet (PLT) apparatuses.
The pH of whole blood PLTs (WBPs) is calculated with the help of a pH meter as a surrogate test for bacterial infection and to prevent the transfusion of bacterially contaminated RBCs and WBPs. Thus, the demand for pH meters is increasing rapidly in the field of hospitals, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical laboratories, ultimately boosting growth of the pH meter market.

Government Regulations Pertaining to Water Treatment Bolster Demand Worldwide
North America is expected to capture a significant share of the pH meter market due to the high adoption of water quality testing machines, which is fuelled by stringent government regulations pertaining to water treatment plants. As per these regulations, water treatment plants need to lower the presence of pollutants that can affect the environment and quality of water.
Moreover, the destructive effect of acidic or alkalinity on high-cost equipment and pipelines, such as condensers, boilers, etc. in the oil & gas and chemical industries, is also expected to boost adoption of pH meters.
In Europe, the demand for pH meters is increasing in the field of pharmaceuticals and food & beverages industries for checking the acidity of samples. In addition, developing countries in the Asia-Pacific region excluding Japan (APEJ), such as India and China, are undertaking initiatives to reinforce policies about the quality of water and its uses, which is another factor that is estimated to drive the pH meter market over the forecast period.
Leading Manufacturers of pH meters Adopt M&A as Key Strategies
Some of the key manufacturers are concentrating on introducing upgraded and advanced pH meters with better performance. Recent mergers and acquisitions in the pH meter market are mainly directed towards boosting developments and upgradation of the specifications of pH meters, and ultimately boosting product sales across end-use industries.
Manufacturers are focusing on acquisitions for enhancing the capabilities of automation processes to attract customers from the industrial sectors, and this is expected to contribute to the growth of the pH meter market during the forecast period. Key players are concentrating on increasing their businesses through acquisitions, collaborations, and merges to expand their regional footprint in the global market.
Some of the examples include
- On February 1, 2019, Emerson Electric Co., one of the leading U.S.-based manufacturers of pH meters, announced the acquisition of Intelligent Platforms from General Electric to expand its capabilities in discrete applications and machine control
- On October 25, 2018, Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., one of the prominent U.S.-based manufacturers of pH meters, announced the acquisition of the Advanced Bioprocessing business from BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company), for improving its medical technology offerings
Some of these key developments by Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. and Emerson Electric Co. for improving their position in the market are also expected to influence recent trends in the pH meter market.
