The density meter market is estimated to be worth USD 855.0 Million in 2018 and is expected to reach USD 1,041.2 Million by 2023, at a CAGR of 4.02% between 2018 and 2023. The growth of this market is propelled by oil & gas downstream segment and stringent regulations with regard to food quality and food safety.

The market for optical density meter is expected to hold the largest market by 2023. An optical density meter includes devices such as refractometers, suspended solid analyzers, and optical consistency transmitters. Optical density meters are used in food & beverages and chemicals industries. Products such as suspended solid analyzers and concentration meters are widely used to measure suspended solids, both in municipal and industrial environments.

The market for the water and wastewater treatment industry is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Suspended solid/sludge density analyzers, ultrasonic concentration meters, and microwave density meters are mainly used in the water and wastewater treatment industry. Norms regarding the discharge of the wastewater are getting stringent, and awareness about water safety is increasing. Also, the popularity of the smart water management is increasing. All these factors are expected to drive the growth of the density meter market for the water and wastewater treatment industry.

The market in APAC is expected to hold the largest share by 2023. The region has high potential for density meters. APAC, having highest populated countries such as China and India, is one of the largest consumers of the oil. India is offering more opportunities for the process automation industry with its political and global reformation. Water and wastewater, food & beverages, and chemicals industries in APAC are expected to drive the growth of the density meter market in the region.

Density Meter Market

One of the key restraining factors for the density meter market is the trade-off between accuracy and the cost of density meters. End users buy density meters according to the need of the application. Density meters are available based on different measuring technologies. The most accurate density meters are based on radiation technology, but these are also among the costliest in the market due to radiation compliance and radioactive isotopes. Ultrasonic density meter has emerged as an alternative for nuclear density meters but could not able to match the same accuracy offered by nuclear density meters in challenging conditions. Thus, end users need to decide based on the sensitivity of measurement and choose products accordingly. Hence, there is a trade-off between accuracy and the cost of density meters for some applications.

Emerson offers density measurement products based on vibration and ultrasonic technologies. It sells the suspended solid analyzer based on ultrasonic technology under the brand name “Mobrey.” The company caters to oil & gas, chemicals, food and beverages, and water and wastewater industries, among others and has a wide geographical reach. Emerson’s well-known capabilities such as distribution channel, customer support, and services and a wide range of product offerings across industries for process automation and instrumentation help it secure the major share of the density meter market. Other significant players are Yokogawa (Japan), Mettler Toledo (Switzerland), Toshiba (Japan), AMETEK (US), Valmet (Finland), Anton Paar (Austria), Vega Grieshaber (Germany), Berthold Technologies (Germany), Schmidt + Haensch (Germany), ProMtec Theisen (Germany), A.KRUSS Optronic (Germany), Avenisense (France), Rudolph Research Analytical (US), Bopp & Reuther (Germany), Rototherm Group (UK), Integrated Sensing System (US), Sensotech (Germany), Kyoto Electronics (Japan), Lemis Baltic (Latvia), Horiba (Japan), Meidensha Corporation (Japan), Dandong Dongfang Measurement & Control Technology (China), and Ronan Engineering (US).
