Global Particle Counter Market: Overview
A particle counter is a device that captures and measures particles present in the working area. Particle counter comes in different particle range of measurement. Mainly particle counter is used as a monitoring measurement equipment to monitor the cleanliness in a cleanroom. Ultrafine particle detector is most frequently used to detect ultrafine airborne particles in a cleanroom and other environments similar to a cleanroom. It is an important tool that gives ideas on whether the working area is optimum to start work or not. Particle in the working area may carry bacterial or viral infections that can contaminate the product and cause significant loss; also, it can affect the product in terms of its purity. Hence, it becomes crucial to check particle density in the working area.
Global Particle Counter Market: Growth Factor
Some of the key factors contributing to the growth of the global particle counter market include increasing demand from packed food & drug manufacturing companies, favorable regulatory scenario, and growing semiconductor & automotive industry. For drug manufacturing companies it is mandatory by FDA regulations that the working or the production area should be free from environmental particles as these can contaminate the drug product and cause severe health problems; same goes with the packed food manufacturing companies. Furthermore, the rising importance of particle contamination in the manufacturing of sensitive parts in the semiconductor industry has positive impact on the demand for particle counter devices. Looking into other side, high cost associated with the particle counters and its services and technical barriers of particle counters may hamper the growth of this market. However, a growing need in medical devices, aerospace, and other hi-tech industries will provide good opportunities for the growth of the global particle counter market over the forecast period.
The global particle counter market is primarily affected by the disruption of the distribution chain in the market. Restrictions on import and export throughout the world have severely affected the market growth. Owing to strict lockdown in the first and second quarters of the year 2020 worker movement has been restricted, which has resulted in production activities because this demand for new particle counter has also decreased significantly. However, many countries have resumed their operations and allowed manufacturers to start their activities which will get the demand for particle counters back on its track.
Global Particle Counter Market: Segmentation
The global particle counter market is segmented based on type, application, end-user, and region. Based on the type, this market is bifurcated into airborne and liquid. In 2019, the airborne particle counter segment held a significant share of the market. Highest market share of this segment is attributed to the rising demand for cleanroom monitoring. Based on application, the market is divided into contamination monitoring of liquids, cleanroom monitoring, and IAQM. Among these cleanrooms, the monitoring segment holds the largest share of the market. The end-user segment is bifurcated into the semiconductor, life sciences & medical devices, and automotive. The life sciences & medical devices segment is the largest end-users of the market.
