The process analyzer market was worth US$ 3.3 billion in 2013. The need for a mechanism to enable early detection of the presence of hazardous chemicals in air/water, as well as addressing concerns in regards to emission control and energy conservation have led to an increase in demand. Other key drivers include the requirement for extremely low-level trace component measurement, water and wastewater treatment.
Some restraints for industry growth include initial high costs, restricted growth in developed countries and a fragmented market with too many specialist suppliers that may inhibit the market growth.
Some of the major companies in the global market are: Siemens AG, ABB Ltd., Emerson process Management, Thermo Fisher Scientific, and Yokogawa Electric Corporation.
