On the basis of technology, the global particle size analysis market has been divided into six major segments, namely, laser diffraction, dynamic light scattering (DLS), imaging, the Coulter Principle, nanoparticle tracking analysis (NTA), and others. The others segment comprises resonant mass measurement, laser obscuration, sedimentations, and sieve analysis technologies. The laser diffraction segment accounted for largest share of the global market at an estimated $80.0 million in 2013; however, the imaging segment market is expected to grow at the highest growth rate in the next five years.

In the report, the global particle size analysis market has also been segmented on the basis of type of dispersion (wet particle size analyzers, dry particle size analyzers, and spray particle size analyzers), type of industry (healthcare; chemicals & petroleum; mining, minerals, & cement; food & beverage; and others (toners, inks, environmental analysis, and cosmetics)), and type of end users in the healthcare industry (pharmaceutical & biopharmaceutical companies, clinical research organizations (CROs) & referral laboratories, and academic institutions). On the basis of geography, this market is classified into four regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and RoW (Latin America, Middle East, and Africa).

The global particle size analysis market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.9% from 2013 to 2018. The market is segmented by the technology on which analyzers are based such as laser diffraction, dynamic light scattering and four others. It captures their sale into various industries along with a detailed focus on end users in the healthcare Industry

A number of factors such as the increasing application of nanotechnology, and geographic expansion by market players are driving the growth of the global market. On the other hand, factors such as high import duty on particle size analysis in developing countries and the high cost of particle size analysis are restricting the growth of this market. In addition to this, lack of effective distribution networks is the key challenge faced by market players.

In 2013, the global market was dominated by North America, followed very closely by Europe. A number of factors such as low energy prices, government initiatives for nanotechnology related research and development activities, and strict regulatory policies to comply with GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) guidelines are driving the growth of the market in the North American region. However, the Asia-Pacific market is expected to grow at highest CAGR from 2013 to 2018. The rapidly growing pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industry is stimulating the demand in Asia-Pacific countries.

New product launches and product developments are the key strategies adopted by major players to develop their position in the global market. Moreover, strategies such as expansion, partnerships, agreements, collaborations, and mergers and acquisitions were adopted by a significant number of market players to strengthen their product portfolio and expand their geographic presence.

Malvern Instruments Limited (U.K.), HORIBA, Ltd. (Japan), Beckman Coulter, Inc. (U.S.), Microtrac, Inc. (U.S.), Micromeritics Instrument Corporation (U.S.), IZON Limited (New Zealand), CILAS (France), Sympatec GmbH (Germany), and Agilent Technologies, Inc. (U.S.) are the key players operating in the global market.
