Market Overview

The dew point analyzer market was valued at USD 1.30 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 2.18 billion by 2029, with a CAGR of 5.39% during the forecast period, 2020–2030.

Dew point analyzer is an instrument used for the determination of moisture content of a sample. It is extensively used in industrial sectors such as agriculture, textile, food, and pharmaceutical. Various natural food regulations have been implemented related to moisture content for certain food products affecting the quality control criteria such as shelf-life, pricing, weight, and quality. A high level of moisture content is presumed to decrease the quality and shelf-life due to microbial activity. Thus, the need for highly effective moisture analysis is essential for the production of a high-quality product.

Increasing transportable dew point analyzers, stringent government regulations for the production of high-quality products, and rising awareness regarding process automation across various industry verticals drive the market growth.

Market Dynamics

Rising R&D Activities and Government Initiatives to Drive the Market

Increasing government regulations related to the moisture content in edible products and drugs is compelling the industrial sector to adopt a suitable moisture analyzer. Furthermore, increasing government initiatives in the pharmaceutical industry and advancement in R&D activities is enhancing the growth of the moisture analyzer industry. In 2019, the government of India (GOI) launched Pharma Vision 2020 that aims to increase small scale drug manufacturers, which is further increasing the adoption of moisture analyzer to accurately measure moisture content and maintain chemical reactivity and binding properties of products.

Rising application of moisture analyzer in bio-energy industries such as wood and pulp and paper to enhance productivity and decrease economic losses drives the market growth. In 2017, MoistTech Corp launched in-line moisture analyzer for the measurement of raw materials in harshest manufacturing environment equipped with non-contacting sensors. This enables the company to have continuous accurate moisture content measurement, resulting in a high-quality products, an increase in productivity, and a decrease in economic losses. 

Rising Adoption of Transportable Dew Point Analyzer

Technological advancement in dew point analyzer drives market growth. Transportable dew point analyzers are extensively used in oil and gas industry to check gas quality. Its non-contact sensing technology, fast response, high accuracy, and minimum maintenance characteristics provide impetus to market growth. Additionally, in 2017, AMTEK, a global leader in manufacturing process analyzer and instrument, launched transportable moisture analyzer offering high accuracy, fast response, lightweight, and durable characteristics for natural gas applications. It enables oil and gas industry to eliminate the need of routine calibration, cleaning sensors, increased measurement uptime, reduced total cost of ownership, and easy to transport between locations.

Segmental Analysis

In-Line Moisture Analyzer Segment to Record the Fastest Growth

The in-line moisture analyzer segment is presumed to gain the fastest growth rate during the period due to rising adoption of inline moisture analyzers across various industrial verticals such as chemicals, textiles, pulp and paper, foods, minerals, lubricants, and personal care products. The in-line moisture analyzer can be mounted on production belt, bunker, or the shaft for continuous measurement of moisture content in the products and also enable ease to make necessary changes in the measurement to ensure high-quality end products. For instance, in 2016, Moist-Scan, a global leader in in-line moisture analyzer, installed Moist-Scan MA 500 in-line moisture analyzer at sugar mill in Qld, Australia to easily handle large and erratic variations in water content, material bed-depth, and conveyor speeds.

Desktop Mounted Dew Point Analyzer Segment Holds the Largest Market Share

The desktop mounted dew point analyzer holds the largest market share. It costs about USD 100–USD 200, which is lower than inline and hand-held dew point analyzer that costs about USD 300–USD 700 and USD 1500–USD 4000, respectively. Also, financial constraints among SMEs across industrial verticals and favorable government initiatives drive the segment growth.

Government Regulations to Drive the Food and Beverage Segment

The food and beverage segment holds the largest market share and is presumed to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to stringent government regulations in terms of maintaining moisture content at desired level and growing awareness among customers regarding healthy foods. In 2018, Western Food Sisters Company, Pure Nature Foods, a healthy snack product manufacturer, Woodland California, utilized Kett KJT270 moisture analyzer to measure the moisture content and organic components of the snack products. This enables the company to maintain high-quality of products and minimize waste with its accurate and reliable characteristics.

Pharmaceutical Segment Holds the Second Highest Market Share

The pharmaceutical segment holds the second-highest market share in the dew point analyzers market on account of increasing government investment in pharmaceutical industry and growing advancement in R&D activities. In 2017, Indian companies received 304 Abbreviated New Drugs Application (ANDA) approvals from the U.S. Food and Drugs Administration (USFDA). This allows the pharma companies to adopt moisture analyzer for routine quality checks to maintain chemical reactivity and binding properties that define product's shelf-life.

Impact of covid-19

The COVID-19 outbreak has drastically affected various industrial verticals. The SMEs are majorly affected on account of government regulations to halt business operations temporarily to support social distancing in public places. This has halted the supply chain, working capital, reduction in cash flow, delay in supply of raw materials, and maintenance and replacement of moisture analyzer in food and beverages, pharmaceutical, and construction sectors, further hampering the market growth.

Regional Analysis

North America Holds the Largest Share in the Dew Point Analyzer Market

North America holds the largest market share in the dew point analyzer market due to its rising demand in oil and gas industry to check gas quality. Furthermore, increasing adoption of process automation in manufacturing sector is the primary factor propelling the market growth. Following figure shows the increase in process automation across different industrial sectors in the U.S.

China and India to be the Leading Contributors to the Dew Point Analyzer Market

Asia-Pacific is anticipated to grow at the fastest rate due to rapid industrial development and rising awareness regarding process automation in the manufacturing sector. Increasing government initiatives in emerging economies such as China and India is propelling market growth. The Make in India initiative has driven the adoption of dew point analyzers in SMEs, notably in food and beverages, pharmaceutical, and natural gas industries. Also, increasing investment in pharmaceutical sector drives market growth. In 2016, Under Make in India Initiative, the government of India plans to facilitate ease of doing business in India and attract maximum Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in pharma sector allowing 74% investment in Brownfield pharmaceutical under automatic route.
