The automatic titrator industry is expected to exhibit substantial growth from 2017 to 2021(forecast period). A range of innovative products by various market players will drive this growth.
Smart titration systems would make immense contributions to efficient management of laboratory data. High volumes of replacements also create lucrative opportunities for market participants.
Titration, a part of analytical chemistry, is used to measure the concentration or amount of a substance known as the analyte. Titrators are of two types – manual and automatic.
Automatic titration is performed with instruments that deliver the titrant, halts at the endpoint, and measures the analyte’s concentration automatically. This is ideal for exact and repeatable results as it uses an electrochemical measurement to determine the endpoint and not a color indicator which is subjective.
The automatic titrator is equipped with a standardized titrant, a burette, a beaker, a volumetric pipette/analytical balance, a sensor, and a stirring mechanism. An accurate liquid-dispensing system is another prerequisite.
Potentiometric automatic titrators can perform analyses comprising precipitation, acid-based, non-aqueous, complexometric, argentometric, oxidation reduction, etc. Bivoltametric automatic titrators are used in the analysis of volumetric Karl Fischer titration and coulometric Karl Fischer titration.
The automatic titrator industry is segmented on the basis of types, applications, and regions. Applications are further split according to nature of the organization and sector.
Sector-based segments include chemical analysis, ion analysis, food analysis, petrochemical analysis, mining analysis, water/wastewater analysis, pulp & paper analysis, and pharmaceutical analysis. Food & beverage testing could be the major end-use in the coming years.
Key regional segments in the global automatic titrator industry are North America, Europe, China, India, Japan, and Southeast Asia. China in particular has a promising future owing to its strong economy, high industrial output, and burgeoning population. Low resources costs have attracted several suppliers to base their operations in this region.
Leading manufacturers in the automatic titrator industry are Metrohm AG, Hach Company, GR Scientific, Kyoto Electronics Manufacturing Co. Ltd., Hanna Instruments, Mitsubishi Chemical Analytech Co. Ltd., Jinan Hanon Instruments Co. Ltd., and Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc.
Other well-known vendors include Mettle-Toledo International Inc., Photovolt Instruments, Inc., SI Analytics GmbH, CSC Scientific Company, and DKK-TOA Corporation.
