Turbidity Meters: Introduction

  • Turbidity meters are used to measure the cloudiness or turbidity of water caused by suspended solid particles. Turbidity meters are also known as nephelometer.
  • Turbidity meters measure the haze or cloudiness in water. It is used in industrial processes that includes environmental monitoring, pharmaceutical manufacturing, and utility applications. Furthermore, turbidity meters are used in commercial applications for turbidity readings in municipal drinking water treatment.   
  • Furthermore, turbidity meters are used to measure the haziness of a fluid, to bring quantitative consistency to the measurement of drinking water for both pathogenic and aesthetic qualities.
  • Turbidity meters are used to measure the turbidity of water in a sample as a result of suspended solid particles. Moreover, turbidity meters can provide more accurate results of turbidity so as to analyze the sample correctly.  
  • Turbidity meters are used to define the concentration of total suspended solid (TTS) particles in water or liquid samples by measuring or evaluating the incident light scattered at right angles from the sample.

Global Turbidity Meters Market: Dynamics

Global Turbidity Meters Market: Key Drivers and Restraints

  • Turbidity meters are used in automated measuring processes, which is cost affective for a company and can reduce the expenditure on labor-intensive tasks. Additionally, low maintenance cost is expected to accelerate the demand for turbidity meters over the forecast period.
  • Growing universality of water pollutants is expected to fuel the growth of the turbidity meters market.
  • Furthermore, low cost of turbidity meters is boosting growth in the market. Turbidity meters can operate as a single device for multiple product types, thus saving significant costs that accrue by using other devices.

High Cost and Lack of Awareness Hindering the Market

  • Turbidity meter manufacturers are quickly incorporating advanced technology to limit the reliance of turbidity meters on a main supply or steady battery supply. The dependency on batteries can hamper the adoption of turbidity meters in industrial process management, as batteries have a tendency to stop at any time.

North America to Account for Major Share of the Global Turbidity Meters Market

  • In terms of region, the global turbidity meters market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America.
  • North America dominated the global turbidity meters market in 2018 due to the expected maximum revenue share. The U.S. is a key market in North America due to increasing sales of turbidity meters (which are portable in nature) for applications such as sewage treatment and pharmaceuticals. Europe is anticipated to hold the second largest share of the global turbidity meters market owing to demand and consumption of water.
  • The turbidity meters market in Asia Pacific is anticipated to expand at a rapid pace over the forecast period due to a flourishing food & ecosystem and chemical manufacturing, which is enhancing the sales of turbidity meters in the region.
  • The turbidity meters market in South America is expected to grow due to paper and pulp production in the region.
