Report Overview

The global pH meters market size was valued at USD 1.5 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.6% from 2023 to 2030. Rising demand for these devices in food processing, water treatment, power, agriculture, and fertilizers is among the key factors expected to drive market growth. Furthermore, rising health concerns, declining immunity levels, and growing user awareness levels regarding water purity are identified as some high-impact rendering drivers. Increasing government regulations regarding the quality of water used and increasing concerns in industrial setups regarding the harmful effects of the acidic or basic nature of water are factors expected to boost usage rates over the forecast period.

U.S. pH meters Market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

Growing incidences of microbial infections coupled with technological advancements in pH meters are expected to serve as lucrative growth opportunities for this market. Moreover, the increasing number of research and testing laboratories, such as soil testing, water testing, and food testing laboratories, is also one of the factors expected to boost the usage of these devices.

pH meters are also used in the food and beverage (F&B) industry to assess the pH value of dairy products like cheese, curd, and yogurt. Rapid urbanization and consumer preference for processed and ready-to-eat (RTE) food products drive global market growth.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the pH meter market. The pandemic led to increased demand for pH meter in the healthcare industry, as they are used to measure the acidity and alkalinity of solutions in various applications, such as drug development, vaccine production, and water treatment. The presence of high levels of alkalinity causes various health disorders. According to WHO, around 829,000 people worldwide are estimated to die due to diarrhea from unsafe drinking water. Due to the pandemic, the application of pH meter in the water treatment industry has boosted the demand as the high pH level in water erodes the equipment.

Product Insights

The market is segmented by product type into benchtop, portable, and continuous pH meters. The benchtop meters segment accounted for the largest revenue share of almost 49.7% in 2022 owing to its wide application in academic institutes, laboratories, and industrial researchers, ease of usage, and growing demand for easy accessibility and accuracy. Technological advancements such as online pH meters, calibration-free measurement systems, microprocessors for auto temperature, and pressure compensation are a few of the factors expected to propel the market growth over the forecast period. In March 2023, Hanna Instruments, Inc introduced its Advanced Benchtop Meter Series, featuring three models for testing pH, conductivity, and dissolved oxygen testing. These fast, accurate, and repeatable meters suit various industry applications.

Global pH meters Market share and size, 2022

The portable pH meters segment is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period. These meters ' high mobility and small size are key factors in their rapid growth. Stringent regulations on water treatment plants by various EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), rising health concerns among the population regarding the adverse effect of quality of water, and easy accessibility & availability of such instruments are among few of the fa

ctors that are expected to boost the usage of pH meters across various industries. For instance, a compact & portable water quality testing meter, Metravi PH-700 pH Meter, is a handy instrument used for pH and temperature testing for various applications such as drinking water, food & beverage, hydrotherapy, hydroponics, and reverse osmosis systems.

Application Insights

The application segment of the market is further divided into pharmaceuticals & biotechnology, food science, water & waste treatment, research institutes, and environmental control boards. The food science segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2022. The wide application area of pH meters in industries such as wine, fruit juice, food processing, agriculture, dairy, and others contributes to the growth of the segment.

However, growing incidences of water body contamination as a consequence of untreated water discharge from chemicals, leather, and other industries and increasing incidences of water-borne diseases such as cholera, diarrhea, and leptospirosis are a few factors that are expected to reinforce market growth positively. Growing awareness regarding the quality of drinking water and the analysis of water pH levels to prevent corrosions in pipelines and equipment, such as condensers and boilers, are expected to boost industrial usage of these meters.

Furthermore, technological advancements in pH meters, such as the incorporation of smart sensors, multi-parameter analysis, and growing concern regarding the harmful effects of the acidic or basic nature of water, are among some factors driving the usage of such devices over the forecast period. In December 2021, Hanna Instruments introduced its HALO2 Wireless pH Testers, a product line that combines a professional pH electrode with Bluetooth 5.0 Wireless Technology. These devices turn phones or tablets into laboratory-grade pH meters, allowing users to test with a professional electrode in any environment. The compact design and data logging capabilities ensure high-quality results.

In addition, the high demand for these devices in food and beverages industries for monitoring their production process and maintaining the standards and the growing need for technologically advanced continuous monitoring of pH levels in industrial productions are also contributing factors that are anticipated to increase pH meters industry growth. However, rising awareness levels and favorable government initiatives are further estimated to fuel market growth.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 33.0% in 2022. The segment is also expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period. Rising awareness regarding novel devices with technologically advanced sensors, increasing favorable government initiatives for water treatment, and growing awareness regarding the utility and applications of such measuring devices among industrial researchers, agricultural scientists, and irrigational experts are a few factors attributing to the rapid growth. In August 2022, Thermo Fisher Scientific launched a new line of Eutech 1700 Series Bench Meters for easy electrochemistry testing. These user-friendly meters help measure pH, conductivity, and dissolved oxygen more accurately.

pH meters Market Trends, by Region, 2023 - 2030

Europe is also expected to generate significant revenue over the forecast period. Major factors accounting for the significant share include the high level of R&D activities, presence of advanced healthcare and industrial infrastructure, high health concern, high levels of disposable income, and high awareness about waterborne diseases.
