Atomic absorption spectrometer is a type of quantitative analysis where in a specific wave length of light absorbed by atoms in neutral state is detected or recorded. The more the number of the atoms, the more is the intensity of absorption and vice-versa. This can also be called as metal analysis spectrometer as it mainly used for metal analysis.
It finds huge applications in the analysis for trace metals in soils, lakes, rivers, oceans, and drinking water, pharmaceuticals, foods and beverages, geological and mineralogical samples, petroleum products, biological fluids and specimens and forensic analysis. It is common to get results in ppm levels and a higher sensitivity of ppb levels when we using graphite furnace atomization.
The global atomic absorption spectrometer market has seen phenomenal growth over last few years. With the increasing use of atomic absorption spectrometer in various applications the market is expected to grow with an affective CAGR during the forecast period 2014-2025. The growth of global market will be determined by growing consumption of atomic absorption spectrometer by numerous industries such as biomonitoring industry, chemical industry, food industry and many other.
The global atomic absorption spectrometer market is segmented on the basis of applications, end user, and region. On the basis of application, the global market is classified into environmental analysis, food and beverages testing, biotechnology, and others. The atomic absorption spectrometer also finds its applications in semiconductors and electronic industry. Food and beverages testing segment holds the largest market share and is expected to grow at highest CAGR during the forecast period of 2014 to 2025, which is then followed by biotechnology segment.
On the basis of end user, the global market is classified into pharmaceutical industry, mining industry, petrochemical industry, agriculture industry, and others. Pharmaceutical industry segment account for the largest market share and is likely to witness highest growth as compared to the other segments in global atomic absorption spectrometer market during the forecast period of 2014 to 2025. Pharmaceuticals: In some pharmaceutical manufacturing processes, minute quantities of a catalyst used in the process (usually a metal) are sometimes present in the final product. By using AAS the amount of catalyst present can be determined.
Industry: Many raw materials are examined and AAS is widely used to check that the major elements are present and that toxic impurities are lower than specified e.g. in concrete, where calcium is a major constituent, the lead level should be low because it is toxic. Mining Industry: By using AAS the amount of metals such asgold in rocks can be determined to see whether it isworth mining the rocks to extract the gold.
Geographically, the global market is segmented into North America (U.S., Canada), Latin America (Mexico, Brazil), Western Europe (Germany, Italy, France, England, Spain, Nordic Countries, Belgium, The Netherlands, and Luxembourg), Eastern Europe (Poland, Russia), Asia Pacific (China, India, ASEAN, Australia and New Zealand, Japan), Middle East and Africa (GCC, South Africa, North Africa).
North America accounted for the largest share of the global atomic absorption spectrometer market in 2014, and is estimated to remain dominant over the forecast period of 2014 to 2025. Followed by Western Europe and Asia Pacific due to the major advancement commenced by the key players in this region.
Asia Pacific region is dignified to witness highest growth during the forecast period 2014-2025 due to the growing consumption of atomic absorption spectrometer by petrochemical and agriculture industries in this region. The key players of the global market are Thermo Fisher Scientific, Analytik Jena AG, Hitachi High-Technologies Corporation, GBC Scientific Equipment Pty Ltd., Agilent Technologies, Rigaku Corporation, Shimadzu Corporation, Aurora Biomed, PerkinElmer, Inc. and Bruker Corporation.
