Silica analyzer market size are used to monitor the silica concentration of the water by utilizing the colorimetric analysis principle. The main application of the silica analyzer is in power generation and semiconductor industries. The significance of accurate silica measurement in water chemistry analysis is one of the key factors driving the market growth. The market was valued at USD 100.3 million in 2017 and is expected to reach USD 139.6 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 5.66% during the forecast period. The base year considered for the study is 2017, and the forecast period is between 2018 and 2023.

Silica Analyzer Market

Utility grade power plants to witness highest CAGR in silica analyzer market for equipment during the forecast period

The power generation plants are of 2 types: utility grade power plants and captive/independent power plants. Utility grade power plants are engaged in electricity generation and distribution of this electricity to residential, commercial, and industrial users. The power generated by captive power plants or independent power producers is used for industrial plants such as oil refineries, sugar factories, or pharmaceutical companies and is limited and lesser compared to utility grade power plants. In every utility grade power plant, at least 3 to 4 silica analyzers are installed, whereas, captive or independent power plants can manage to generate power with the help of single silica analyzer. Hence, utility grade power plants provide attractive opportunities in the silica analyzer market.

Power generation industry to command global silica analyzer market during the forecast period

Silica analyzers are used to monitor the silica content in the water used in power generation plants for several applications such as steam generation and condensate polishing, which helps in avoiding silica scaling on turbines. The power generation industry is one of the most important and major users of multi-stream silica analyzers. The semiconductor industry uses silica analyzers for ultra-pure water applications, but mostly single-stream silica analyzers, which are cheaper than multi-stream silica analyzers, are preferred in this industry.

Silica analyzer market in APAC expect to grow at highest CAGR during the forecast period

APAC is expected to continue to hold the largest share of the silica analyzer market owing to the presence of a large number of coal-fired power plants in APAC countries such as China and India. The silica analyzer market in APAC is also driven by the growing demand for electricity and increasing number of coal-fired power plants. Although other regions are focusing on harnessing renewable sources of energy such as solar cells, windmills, and hydroelectric power, the APAC region, especially Asian countries such as China and India, heavily rely on coal-fired power plants to generate electricity. China, being the largest consumer of coal, is relying highly on coal-fired power generation. India is also focusing on increasing the efficiency of coal-fired power plants up to 60% by 2019. In Asia, there are huge coal reserves, and the electricity generated by coal is cheaper than the electricity generated by oil-fired or gas-fired power plants.

North America is another important market for silica analyzers, with 381 coal-fired power plants; the US alone has 60 nuclear plants involved in power generation. In 2017, coal was the second-largest source used to generate around 30% of energy according to the US Energy Information Administration.

Silica Analyzer Market

Market Dynamics

Driver: Significance of accurate silica measurement in steam/water cycle for optimizing power plant efficiency

Silica is made up of most abundant elements, namely, silicon and oxygen. Silica analyzers are used to measure the concentration level of silica in water samples across different industries, such as power generation and semiconductor, among many others. Silica concentration is very important for the steam generation and cooling water systems installed in aforementioned industries. Among many potential impurities in the steam cycle, silica plays a vital role because the solubility of silica in steam directly depends on the density and temperature of the steam. With the increasing temperature and density, the solubility of silica also increases and a deposit of 0.5 mm can diminish thermal transfer by about 28%. In a typical water/steam cycle, silica can be measured in the saturated steam, main steam, or reheat steam. Higher concentrations of silica lead to the deposition of a layer on turbine surfaces. Any minor deviation of silica concentration on a power plant can have serious and expensive consequences in relation to performance, reliability, efficiency, and safety; hence, it is very much necessary to monitor this parameter closely.

Restraint: Requirement for regular maintenance and replacement of parts or consumables

A silica analyzer consists of various consumables. These consumables include tubing harness, tubing lubricant, sample bottles, sample outlets, drain, sample chambers, etc. These consumables must be maintained regularly or replaced when required to keep silica analyzers working accurately. Sample bottles containing reagents, such as molybdate 3 and citric acid/surfactant, need to be regularly filled to maintain continuous working of silica analyzers. Also, sample bottles must be frequently cleaned. The tubing kit or the connecting tubes used in silica analyzers also required to be cleaned routinely for the accurate analysis of the sample. In case any physical damages to these consumables, replacement is the only option. Thus, the regular maintenance or replacement of parts or consumables can be a restraint for the silica analyzer market growth as it increases the total cost of ownership.

Opportunity: Huge demand from APAC for silica analyzers owing to rising need for energy

APAC holds more than half of the world’s population. The growing disposable income has led to the increasing energy consumption per capita as people have access to various digital devices and consumer appliances. Further, to support the growing demand for these electrical and electronic appliances, energy demand from the industrial sector has also grown significantly. The abundant availability and huge reserves of coal have made thermal power as the most reliable and cheap source of generating electricity to fulfill the energy requirement from the said region. Additionally, APAC (especially China and India) has also witnessed huge capacity augmentation in the renewable energy sector, but thermal power still dominates the energy mix.

Challenge: Emphasis on renewable energy sources and curb on greenhouse emissions from power plants

Use of boilers in coal-fired power plants causes the turbine rotors to turn for the generation of electricity. Water is taken from the feeder to the boiler system. Water is then heated using coal to generate steam, which, in turn, turns the turbine. Coal-fired power plants emit greenhouse gases. Harmful substances such as mercury, sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, selenium, and arsenic are also emitted from these thermal power plants. Also, the efficiency of coal-fired power plants is about 33%, and it is the cheap source of generating power. Moreover, the coal is available in abundance, especially with huge proved reserves in the US and APAC.

The efficiency of coal-fired power plants has increased and greenhouse emissions have also been reduced by deploying high-efficiency, low-emission technologies within the coal-fired power plants. Supercritical and ultra-supercritical technologies, Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC), and Fluidized Bed Combustion (FBC) are some of them. However, governments across the world are taking the initiative to reduce the pollution, take measures to deal with climate changes, and shut down coal-fired power plants. Canada, under the Paris Climate Accord, will close all of its coal-fired power plants by 2030. France produces around 1% of its energy from coal-fired power plants and is expected to shut down all of its thermal plants by 2023. Although the use of advanced technologies for coal-fired power plants and use of gas as a fuel instead of coal have reduced pollution and emission of harmful elements and increased the efficiency of power plants. Hence, coal-fired power plants have a huge installed base for silica analyzers, but the shutdown of these plants creates challenges for the players in the silica analyzer market, especially in Europe. However, this challenge can be overcome by the deployment of advanced high-efficiency low-emission technologies in coal-fired power plants and by using natural gas as a fuel.
