Rheometers are the laboratory devices that are used for the analysis of flow behaviour and measurement of rheological properties of the fluid. Rheometers are widely used in various end use industries as these are crucial for evaluating the quality of various fluids/liquids.
For example, in paints and coatings, rheometers are used for assessing pumping and flow behaviour, behaviour after coating which is vital to assess the performance of the liquid/fluids in long term.
Rapid adoption of rheometers to assess stability of fluids in long term in industries such as paint & coatings, petrochemicals
The increasing demand for rheometers for the measurement of vital parameters such as flow behaviour or precise measurement of important components in fluids is a primary factor driving the rheometers market.
Also, various test results such as viscosity of the melt, viscoelastic properties, temperature dependent behaviour are also essential to maintain the quality and assess the stability of various fluids in multiple industries.
The growing demand for rheometers in the paint & coatings industry to control the pumping and flow behaviour during production is also creating potential growth opportunities for the rheometers market.
Moreover, high expenditure on research and development in various sectors such as pharmaceutical, food and petrochemical industries is also boosting the growth of the rheometers market.
In addition to this, growing concerns related to quality of the food is also contributing to the growth of rheometers market. For example, vinegar and salad dressings which usually contain herbs and vegetable pieces. To assess the stability of this food mixture, rheological parameters need to be tested and analysed.
Rheometer is gaining traction in polymer industry due to the complex rheological behaviour of polymers
The growing usage of polymers across the globe and high need for maintaining the quality of the polymers are some of the important factors boosting the adoption of rheometers in polymer industry.
