The global particle size
analysis market is anticipated to expand at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR)
of 5.5% during the forecast period of 2022-2030.
Particle size analysis is a technical process or a laboratory technique involving
the determination of the size range or distribution of particles in a given liquid
or powder sample. As particle’s size influences the material’s primary
functioning, its analysis aids in enhancing the final product's performance,
characteristic, and quality. As a result, it is heavily used in the manufacturing
and formulation of several products used in applications such as pharmaceuticals,
cosmetics, food products, nanotechnology, building materials, etc.
Particle size analysis is typically carried out in particle technology
laboratories utilizing various methods or technologies, depending on several
factors among various end-user industries.
driving the growth of this market include: the rising investments in
pharmaceutical R&D; the growing number of stringent regulatory guidelines
by governments of various countries for product quality across industries
worldwide; the surging number of research activities in the field of
nanotechnology, coupled with the growing adoption of particle size analyzers in
nanotechnology; the raising standards of various end-user industries; the
rising consumer awareness regarding target technologies, and the escalating technological
advancements across the globe.
the rapid evolution of particle size analysis from sieving, milling, and other
material processing techniques to sieve analysis, static laser light scattering
(SLS), dynamic digital image analysis (DIA), along with the continuous
development of various other new techniques in determining sizes of various
particles has opened up ample opportunities of growth for the market players
present in this market. These new technologies are being utilized across
numerous end-user industries, thereby boosting the growth of the overall market
across the globe.

in several clinical trials, the demand from the pharmaceutical and healthcare
industries has been the highest for particle size analysis services and
solutions. Large numbers of samples and complex handling processes generate an
enormous requirement for quick estimation methods. Alongside, the support from
government organizations to bolster their domestic pharmaceutical markets is
also growing. All these factors are
expected to bode well for the growth of the global particle size analysis
market in the next few years.
factors such as the proliferating applications of nanotechnology across various
industries; the escalating demand for lab-on-chip devices, and the increasing
incorporation of particle size analysis in real-time production environments
for various quality control assessments to reduce damage are expected to
further propel the growth of the global particle size analysis market during
the forecast period.
factors such as the high cost of particle size analyzers, especially in
emerging economies, the limitations in particle characterization range, and the
dearth of knowledge regarding the technique are expected to hinder the growth
of the global particle size analysis market to some extent during the forecast
