Laser Diffraction Equipment Market Segmented By Wet particle analysis, Dry particle analysis and Spray particle analysis dispersion type for size of particle such as 0.01µm to 3500µm, 0.1µm to 2500µm, 0.1µm to 2000µm
Laser diffraction is a widely used technique for sizing of particles from hundreds of nanometer up to several millimeter. Laser diffraction measures the size of particle by the angular variation in the intensity of the light scattered as the laser beam passes through the particle.
Small particle scatter light at large angle as compared to large particle which scatter light at relatively small angles. Laser diffraction equipment analyzes the scattering data and then calculates the size of particles using the light scattering theory.
The equipment consists of laser, detector and mean for sample to pass through a laser beam. Laser diffraction equipment can measure wide range of particles in number of samples in less duration, provides rapid and repeatable results and is a well-established technique. Laser diffraction equipment has wide range of application in the industries such as food industry, chemical industry, building industry and pharmaceutical industry.
With development in the nanotechnology in various industries the global laser diffraction equipment market is expected to register a positive growth during the forecast period. Many semiconductors are manufactured using nanotechnology, also nanosensors are being used in building industries to detect cracks and cement corrosion which are the factors that can propel the growth of the global laser diffraction equipment market through 2024.
Additionally, rise in funding and grants for research in industries, emphasis of quality control regulation by pharmaceuticals, less time for analysis, quicker, better results, higher sample throughput and advancement in technology are the factors responsible for driving the growth of the global laser diffraction equipment market during the forecast period.
However, the higher cost of the equipment, lack of customer awareness, relatively high import duties on the product are the major restraints that can hamper the growth of the global laser diffraction equipment market during the forecast period that is through 2024.
