Miniaturization opens new In-line, On-field, Point-of-Care and Consumer Applications
The molecular spectrometer systems market has reached $ 4.5b in 2015. Inside this market, the fastest growing segment is the market of miniaturized spectrometers. Miniature spectrometers, and then micro spectrometers, were develop to make available the use of spectrometers outside analytics laboratories, thanks to an increased ease-of-use, a reduction of costs and a decreased time-to-result.
The total molecular spectroscopy market will experience a 7% annual growth rate while the market of mini and micro spectrometers is expected to grow at a CAGR2015-2021 of 11%. This important growth will be due to a wider adoption of spectrometers on-field and for in-process applications in industry. Spectrometers manufacturers also target Point-of-Care (POC) and consumer applications like food testing.
These large series applications are enabled by further decrease of size and costs of spectrometers thanks to innovative components like MEMS and MOEMS and designs.
The report provides the market revenue breakdown between conventional and compact spectrometers. It also includes detailed market revenue and units forecasts by application from 2015 to 2021 for mini and micro spectrometers and an analysis by segment.
Miniature and micro spectrometers did not only replace classical spectrometers by bringing lab measurements to the field or the process line, they also open new applications where spectroscopy is not used today: precision agriculture, consumer food testing, etc. The range of potential applications is very broad.
The market is split into a wide variety of niche applications, each one having its own requirements in terms of performance, costs, design, operating conditions, etc. It implies the development of products specific to each segment.
Currently Research and industrial optical characterization of LEDS, lasers and displays are the biggest segments. The rest of the market is more an accumulation of many custom developments.
