Silica Analyzer Market Introduction

Silica analyzers are witnessing high demand across various industrial sectors, including power generation and semiconductor industries, to monitor the silica concentration. The global market for silica analyzers has witnessed healthy growth in the past decade to reach US$ 99 million in 2017, and it is likely to maintain the momentum in the upcoming years.

Increasing applications of silica analyzers in the power generation industry for monitoring the silica content in water in power plants will hold a significant share in growth of the silica analyzer market. In addition, growing requirements for accurate silica measurement in water and wastewater industry is another factor instrumental in driving growth of the silica analyzer market in the coming future. However, inevitable needs for regular and high-cost maintenance cycles are restricting the adoption of silica analyzers, thereby impeding growth of the silica analyzer market.

Silica Analyzer Market Dynamics

Manufacturers Focus on Introducing Low-maintenance Silica Analyzers

Silica analyzers are widely used in water and wastewater treatment industry as silica can be highly efficient in water treatment procedures without having any corrosive effects on boilers. However, applications of silica analyzers in boiler feedwater can have major drawbacks such as extra, costly maintenance and unexpected shutdowns, which negatively impact the business productivity.

Leading players in the silica analyzer market are working towards reducing the need for regular time-consuming maintenance in silica analyzers, and further expand their sales potential in the water and wastewater industry. To meet silica measurement challenges, manufacturers are optimizing the design of silica analyzers to improve their measurement accuracies by allowing automatic calibration. Thereby, the adoption of new designing strategies to minimize the need for maintenance of silica analyzers will become a popular trend in the silica analyzer market in the upcoming years.

Stringent Occupational Safety Regulations and Governmental Activities with Impact Sales

Exposure to silica or breathing crystalline silica dust can have detrimental effects; it can cause silicosis, which can be fatal in severe cases. Strict regulations implemented by governing bodies and occupational safety and health organizations make it mandatory to install silica analyzers for organizations where employees are at the risk of heavy silica exposure. Thereby, stringent workers’ safety regulations will positively impact the growth of the silica analyzer market.

National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), which is the United States federal agency, recently launched a beta version of a new software for respirable crystalline silica monitoring under its Mining Program. The new software tool is released by NIOSH is called Field Analysis of Silica Tool (FAST), which works together with FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared) silica analyzers, which are available commercially, to monitor workers' exposure to crystalline silica with enhanced accuracy and efficiency.

Thereby, the introduction to high-accuracy silica analyzer tools and innovation-driven governmental activities are likely to influence emerging trends in the silica analyzer market in the coming future.
