Particle Size Analysis Market by Technology Dispersion, End-user and Region - Global Forecast to 2026 -

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Global Particle Size Analysis Market by Technology (Laser Diffraction, DLS, Imaging, Coulter Principle, Sieving, Nanoparticle Tracking), Dispersion (Wet, Dry, Spray), End-user (Pharma-biotech, Cosmeceutical, Chemicals, Food, Academia), and Region - Forecast to 2026" report has been added to's offering.

The global particle size analysis market is projected to reach USD 492 million by 2026 from USD 371 million in 2021, growing at a CAGR of 5.8%.

The growth of the market is attributed to increasing research activities in the field of nanotechnology, growing investments in pharmaceutical R&D, and stringent regulatory guidelines for product quality across industries. However, the heavy import duties on particle size analyzers in developing countries and limitations in particle characterization range are the major factors that are expected to restrain the growth of this market during the forecast period.

The laser diffraction segment is expected to account for the largest market share during the forecast period

Based on technology, the market is segmented into laser diffraction, dynamic light scattering, imaging, Coulter principle, nanoparticle tracking analysis, and other technologies. The laser diffraction segment accounted for the largest share of this market in 2020, driven by growing initiatives to create awareness about laser diffraction, increasing training conducted by companies, increasing R&D expenditure in the pharma and biotech sectors, and rising food safety concerns.

The dynamic imaging segment to hold a major share of the particle size analysis market during the forecast period

Based on type, the imaging market is segmented into two major types - dynamic and static. Factors such as high-quality/resolution images, better image recognition, user-friendliness, individual sample measurement, and high-speed analysis are driving the growth of the dynamic imaging segment.

Europe to account for the second-largest share of the global market in 2020

The particle size analysis industry is segmented into five major regions, namely, North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. Europe accounted for the second-largest share of the global particle size analysis market in 2020. Growing R&D activity, technological advancements, and conferences & events are the key factors driving market growth in the region. Moreover, government support to develop innovative technologies for the analysis of nanomaterials are playing a vital role in the growth of the particle size analysis industry in Europe.
