Viscometer Market Outlook in 2016-2020 Compared to 2021-2031 Forecast

Controlling the process parameters of materials, prior to production and post-production, has become necessary in various industries. Soaring concern regarding the maintenance of precise process parameters of desired materials has compelled industries to adopt novel measuring equipment such as modern viscometer.

As per the analysis by Future Market Insights, the global viscometer market is projected to register growth at a CAGR of 6.9% during 2021 and 2031.

Rapid expansion of industrial output over the last few years has encouraged adoption of advanced solutions to measure viscosity of various materials. To maintain their position in the industry, end-users are keen to improve their batch consistency.

Increasing application of viscometer in the pharmaceutical and food sectors have create attractive opportunities for the growth of the market in the last few years. Viscometers are gaining popularity due to their adaptability, ease-of-use, and convenience that it offers for various end-to-end applications.

On the back of these factors, the global viscometer is expected to surpass US$ 300.4 Mn, registering year-over-year growth at 6.4% in 2021.

What are the Factors Restraining the Market Growth?

Easy availability of alternative and low quality products is one of the major factors creating a challenge for viscometer market players. Improving access to cost-effective viscometer substitutes, particularly in local markets, are likely to impede the sales during the forecast period.

As these products are readily available at low costs, they are strongly adopted by smaller end-users, who do not need standardized accuracy for application measurement. New entrants or small companies, especially in emerging economies, develop similar products but do not meet the product design standards. Due to this, sales of well-known brands are adversely affected.

What Is the Impact of COVID-19 on Viscometer Market?

Unprecedented outbreak of COVID-19 had a major impact on global economic growth. Global viscometer market witnessed a substantial drop in demand during the FQ-20. As the production activities of most industries, including petroleum, food & beverage, and industrial oil & lubricants temporarily suspended, demand for viscometer manufacturing and sales declined.

Due to the global shutdown, manufacturing and production activities reached a sudden stand-still, resulting in slight drop in the market growth. Due to this, both high-cost and low cost producers of viscometers are anticipated to witness challenging mid-term growth market outlook.
