Osmometers have gained considerable traction as a viable analytical instrument that helps indicate the osmotic pressure of various solutions, colloids, and compounds. Freezing point, membrane and vapour pressure are some of the commercially available osmometers.Of these, the freezing point method is the most commonly used method in laboratories, globally. They are efficient, easy to use, and useful for timely diagnosis. Therefore, osmometers are widely used diagnostic tools in laboratories, diagnostic centres and hospitals. In addition, the osmometers have various applications in medical research, chemical research, and bioengineering. It is also used in quality control to check the purity of water and other liquids.
Increasing the use of osmometers in clinical, and biopharmaceutical labs for cell culture research, diagnostics, quality control, and drug discovery applications is a key driver for the market growth. They are widely used in diagnostics to measure the osmotic pressure of body fluids, such as blood, urine, as well as cerebrospinal fluid which, in turn, is favouring the market growth. Another factor has a positive impact on market growth is the outbreak COVID-19 starting in the year 2020. This has significantly accelerated the adoption of osmometers to assist in the treatment of patients.
For instance, as per March 2020 article published by “New Scientific Resource : Using Osmolality to Diagnose & Treat Hyponatremia in COVID-19 Patients”, COVID-19 is linked with electrolyte disorders including hyponatremia. Therefore, an early diagnosis is important in patients with hyponatremia to ensure appropriate treatment. Such instances are expected to create a favourable environment for key players and market growth in the near future. Moreover, the market demand across biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors to provide a quality check and process control in the development and production of biologics will drive the market prominence in the coming years.
Furthermore, product innovations , such as the introduction of multi-sample micro osmometers that increases the production and provide fast and accurate osmolality test results are also expected to fuel the product demand in near future. Apart from that, increasing demand for accurate analysis for better clinical outcomes and extensive R&D activities are anticipated to drive the market toward growth further. For instance,
In July 2021, ELITechGroup, acquired GONOTEC to provide a full range of osmotic measurement solution that meets the specific needs of physicians to accurately and quickly diagnose disease and determine the correct course of treatment for their patients
Similarly, in September 2020, Advanced Instruments launched its newest OsmoTECH XT Single-Sample Micro-Osmometer, designed to freeze even the most complex sample types
In June 2019, Advanced Instruments, LLC launched their new web-based program, Advanced QC Peer Group that allows labs to compare their osmometer serum and urine results to their colleagues’ data on a real-time and monthly basis
These technological advancements are expected to boost the osmometers market growth in the forecast period. However, limitations linked with various techniques of osmometry and lack of skilled professionals are expected to obstruct the market growth.
Leading participants in the osmometer market include Advanced Instruments LLC, ELITech Group SAS, ARKRAY Inc., Astori Tecnica s.r.l., LABTEK Services Ltd., KNAUER Wissenschaftliche Geräte GmbH, Nova Biomedical Corporation, Löser Messtechnik, Precision Systems Inc. and ratiolab among others.
