This study is one of the most comprehensive documentation that captures all the facets of the evolving Viscometers market.


Robust growth in the petroleum industry, rising food and beverages industry and adoption of new technologies in the healthcare industry with rising expenditure are some of the key factors driving demand in the viscometers market. Knowing viscosity is becoming important in the industrial sector with increasing use of liquid media. Rotational viscometers with an ability to measure Newtonian and non-newtonian fluids in a wide range of viscosity are used on a large scale in various industries. Increasing production of bakery products and chocolates are resulting in growing demand for viscometers across countries.

Viscosity is a key parameter in reservoir development, this is driving demand in the viscometers market, especially in heavy oil production and processing. Major oil companies are increasingly purchasing viscometers to monitor viscosity of diesel fuel blending. New viscometers systems are being developed to provide accurate and real-time viscosity reading to meet high quality standards and help refineries comply with the new US government regulations to provide low-sulfur diesel fuel. Moreover, stringent regulations and standard specification by governments in the pharmaceutical industry is influencing growth in the viscometers market. 

However, the high cost of viscometers is one of the biggest challenges facing the viscometers market. Providing an affordable alternative to high priced viscometers is one of the key focus areas of manufacturers. This is also leading toward the development of low-cost and technically advanced viscometers.

Global Viscometers Market 2018–2028:
Manufacturers Introducing Appearance and Functionality Modifications to Boost Product Sales

Global Viscometers Market: Overview

Viscometers are used for measuring the drag caused by the relative motion between a surface and a fluid. They are also known as ‘viscosimeters’ as they are used for the measurement of the viscosity of fluids. These devices are available in different types as per the various flow conditions of fluids. Viscometers are used for measuring under one flow conditions only.

The rapid growth of the petrochemical and material processing industries since the past few years is resulting in an increase in the adoption of advanced technological solutions for efficient and more advanced methods, which include the usage of viscometers. The manufacturers of viscometers are constantly upgrading their products to improve functionality and offer industry-suitable products to their customers.

The demand for various devices from industries is changing rapidly since the past few years, which is fuelling the need to generate industry-specific products for satisfying the fluid property measurement requirements of different industries. Viscometers can be used for this purpose. This trend is also encouraging manufacturers to introduce modernised modifications in the appearance and functionalities of viscometers, which include touchscreen viscometers, digital viscometers and others. To be able to introduce the above-mentioned features, manufacturers are increasingly undertaking research & development initiatives.

Global Viscometers Market: Drivers and Restraints

One of the major factors fuelling the growth of the market is the increasing adoption of viscometers in the material processing industry as the viscosity of fluids is one of the crucial parameters for the determination of the property of the fluid material. Moreover, increase in government regulations for the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries for the delivery of products based on a standard specification is also another factor driving the viscometers market. Increase in the usage of viscometers in the petroleum industry and the food & beverages industry is also another important factor that is expected to fuel the growth of the market over the forecast period.

Healthcare organisations are facing significant challenges pertaining to the maintenance of the required fluid quality, and the need for laboratory equipment for the determination of the same for research and diagnostic purposes is boosting the adoption of viscometers. Considering the above-mentioned factors, the viscometers market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. On the other hand, the high cost of viscometers is one of the major factors that are likely to restrain the growth of the market.
