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.

Growth Drivers:

Factors primarily 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.

Additionally, 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.

Moreover, due to the increasing number of commercial laboratory services and high investments 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.

Furthermore, other 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.

However, 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 period.
