Turbidimeter Market By Portability (Handheld, Stationary) Application (On-field, Off-field), End Use (Wastewater Treatment, Chemical & Materials, Oil & Gas, Pharmaceutical, Pulp & Paper, Food & Beverages) & Region - Forecast to 2019 - 2029

Turbidimeter Market - Analysis, Outlook, Growth, Trends, Forecasts

Demand for Handheld Turbidimeters Gradually Rising

Owing to their greater measuring range, stationary turbidimeters continue to sell higher in the turbidimeter market. Leading manufacturers of stationary turbidimeters are reaping maximum profits in developing regions. On the other hand, sales of handheld turbidimeters are set to witness rapid growth in the following years, on the back of their compact and user-friendly attributes.

Still in their young phase, sales of handheld turbidimeters would surpass the revenues worth US$ 400 Mn by 2029 end. The prices are relatively inexpensive in East and South Asia, owing to strong presence of local manufacturers, which will further complement sales in these regions.

US Turbidimeter Market to Reach US$ 100 Mn in 2022

Accounting for about a fourth of global market value, North America’s turbidimeter market continues its primacy - majorly owing to the uptight regulatory scenario. While the worldwide sales of turbidimeters remain concentrated in the U.S., FMI study projects that the U.S. market will exceed the revenues worth US$ 100 Mn by the end of 2022.

However, Europe will continue to lead the market over the next decade, led by Germany. On the other hand, establishment of increasing number of desalination and effluent treatment plants (ETP) in Middle East & Africa (MEA) and South Asia would compel market players to realign their strategies.

Developing Advanced Turbidimeters for Time-critical Applications

Online turbidimeters can be easily calibrated and offer turbidity measurements in considerably lesser time. In addition, they eliminate the need for indexing and cut down on usage of silicone oil in laboratories. As time and convenience are quintessential in measuring turbidity of fluids, leading players in global turbidimeter market are developing turbidimeters equipped with sensors for time-critical applications. Manufacturers would howeve be pressurized to innovate their offerings for extended on-field applications such as brewery, and dairy.

How Growth will Unfold

Application of turbidimeters remains prominent in wastewater treatment purposes, particularly for desalination and filtration. Turbidimeters are also widely utilized in chemicals & materials domain for regulating turbidity of intermediate chemicals, to eventually develop products of desired quality. There are strong indications of the market witnessing notable demand coming from the pulp & paper industry, particularly in Middle East & Africa (MEA), in line with the region’s expanding industrial footprint. Sustained adoption will continue in the oil & gas and pharmaceutical industries.


What are the main trends influencing the turbidimeter market?

Smart turbidimeters designed specifically for water quality monitoring and development of low-cost, smartphone-assisted turbidemeters continue to mark promising trends.

Which turbidimeter will generate the most revenue in the coming years?

Stationary turbidimeter continues to influence growth strategies, accounting for over 3/5th of the revenue share. However, growing frequency of innovation around portability and robust rise in end users’ demand for the same will have a significant impact on the sales of portable turbidimeter in coming years.

Which end-use sector is most likely to be highly profitable segment for market players?

Adoption of turbidimeters in wastewater treatment continue to move on an upward swing, accounting for 1/4th of the total market share. Increasing application in pulp & paper and pharmaceutical industry will also work to the advantage of the market players.

Which regional market is touted to procure the maximum revenue share?

With approximately 23% of the revenue share, North America’s turbidimeter market remains at the forefront. High growth opportunities are also expected in Middle East & Asia, which is set to record a CAGR of 7.7% over the forecast period (2019-2029).

What are the opportunities of innovation in the turbidimeter market?

With numerous disruptive technologies on the horizon, the war of innovation supremacy will continue to intensify in the turbidimeter space. In order to stay ahead of the curve, manufacturers will need to set their products apart from the competition.

What are key challenges and competitive risks faced by turbidimeter market players?

In an ambitious study to understand the true market potential of turbidimeter, limitation pertaining to custom calibration of stationary turbidemeter and lax regulation implementation in developing countries emerged as key challenges.
