A portable haze meter measures and monitors the amount of light that is scattered or diffused when passing through a transparent material. Haze is monitored and measured with a wide angle scattering test through which light is diffused at all directions which results in a loss of contrast. Percentage of light when passing from deviates makes beam greater than 2.5 degrees on average.

Rising demand from the infrastructure industry is the major driver for the growth of the portable haze meter market. Increasing population their demand for building resulting into increasing demand for portable haze meters are used to test the structures for defects. Thermal anomalies are used to measure and detect the heat during the day. It also helps in detection of air leakage and heat loss. Various rules and regulations for the safety of the environment have made it mandatory for construction companies to use portable gaze meters which is expected to fuel their demand during the forecast period. Transformers and electrical panels are monitored with the help of haze meters and help in preventing accidents and injuries. Portable haze meters help in checking and monitoring electrical systems such as loose connections and damaged switches to maintain safety.

A major trend in the portable haze meter market is the introduction of integrated conveyorised industrial metal detectors. Conveyorised industrial metal detectors provide flexible and integrated handling solutions that enable it to work in all environments. Increasing industrialization and utilization of metal detecting equipment has resulted in significant change in the packaging industry for inhibiting the coagulation of metal contaminants in food and beverages and pharmaceuticals. Rising emphasis on quality control has made it compulsory for packaging manufacturers to use portable haze meters at the entrance and exit of production processes to detect ferrous and non- ferrous metals.

Lack of awareness about portable haze meters in emerging economies is a major restraint of the portable haze meter market. The rules and regulations related to environmental security and safety are not followed strictly in regions such as Asia Pacific. Thus, the growth of the portable haze meter market is hampered due to the insufficient implementation of rules and regulations despite huge requirement in the process of infrastructure development.

The portable haze meter market can be segmented in terms of product type, end-user, and geography. Based on product type, the portable haze meter market can be categorized into thermography type, and sound wave type. In terms of end-user, the market can be segmented into research, chemical, and food industry. Based on geography, the portable haze meter market is divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. North America and Europe are expected to dominate the portable haze meter market in terms of share due to rising demand for energy efficient buildings. The portable haze meter market in Asia Pacific is expected to dominate in terms of growth rate due to increasing demand for infrastructure.

Key players operating in the portable haze meter market are FLIR Systems, Inc., Raytek Corporation, Infratec GmbH, Infrarotsensorik Und Messtechnik, Opgal Optronics Industries Ltd., etc. The global portable haze meter market is highly fragmented in nature due to presence of many domestic and international players. Key players are adopting innovation and development of existing products as their main strategies to expand their product portfolio and to remain competitive in the market. Many manufacturers have adopted e-commerce and sell their products online which enables them to reduce their cost of operation and improve sales by targeting customers across the globe. Moreover, manufacturers are also engaged in partnerships and collaborations to improve their presence by expanding their product portfolio.
