Overview of the global textile testing equipment market

According to the Technavio’s analyst, the global textile testing equipment market is anticipated to grow at a steady rate and will post a CAGR of close to 2% during the forecast period. The increasing demand for non-woven fabrics will drive the growth prospects for the global textile testing equipment market until the end of 2021. A non-woven fabric is a web structure of the individual fibers manufactured by high-speed and low-cost processes that include web formation, web bonding, and finishing and require textile machinery in each step. One of the major factors responsible for the growing demand for non-woven testing equipment needed for the production of non-woven fabric includes benefits such as low cost, recyclability, easily disposable, and environment-friendly.

The rising use of sustainable fibers will drive the growth prospects for the global textile testing equipment market for the next four years. A large number of companies are trying various combinations and fiber mix to produce sustainable fibers that will propel the demand for textile testing equipment worldwide. For instance, a California-based company, Synergy, offers a variety of fibers with a blend of organic cotton that includes hemp and bamboo.

Overview of the global gas chromatograph market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global gas chromatograph market will grow steadily during the next four years and post a CAGR of more than 5% by 2021. This market research analysis identifies the growing concerns on food safety as one of the primary growth factors for this market. In addition to mandating the need to list the ingredients related to the nutritional content, several countries such as the US have introduced various regulations to ensure the safety and nutritional quality of food. To meet these requirements, food manufacturers and processors have  the need to assess the product quality themselves. Gas chromatography provides a cost-effective way to identify and separate complex organic substances, in turn, ensuring the quality of food products. Additionally, gas chromatography also detects and separates toxins such as aflatoxin produced by a mold on peanuts. With the increasing incidences of contamination and the growing number of proactive consumers, there will be a significant increase in the demand for separation techniques such as gas chromatography machines in the coming years.

To streamline laboratory experiments, research facilities will start adopting sample handling equipment to replace their manual processes. The automation of sample handling processes will help research facilities to significantly reduce errors both within and between experiments and will also allow greater control and precision over the quantity of the sample.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market is characterized by the presence of a number of international and regional vendors. Since the international gas chromatography

Overview of the analytical instrument market in the US

Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the analytical instrument market in the US will grow steadily during the predicted period and post a CAGR of almost 4% by 2021. This market research analysis identifies the introduction of stringent regulations by the US government as one of the primary growth factors for the analytical equipment market. Unlike countries in APAC and GCC, such as India, China, and Saudi Arabia, countries in the Europe and the Americas strictly follow regulations set by regulatory bodies such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  Instances such as the leakage of harmful gasses and toxic emissions compel countries in these regions to develop and introduce strict guidelines to be followed by the oil and gas industry to improve operational safety and reduce emissions. This will consecutively result in the adoption of high-quality analytical instruments.

Recent rise in the number of electrical and electronic components in the automobile industry will be one of the major trends that will gain traction in the analytical instruments market during the next four years. The increased implementation of wired and wireless serial communications increases the demand for electrical measuring equipment from the automotive industry. To differentiate their products from their competitors, automotive manufacturers are increasingly focusing on the installation of new entertainment systems that can be connected to several devices, embedded cellular technology such as eCall, and GPS and hotspot systems that convert 3G or 4G

Overview of the global ultrasonic NDT equipment market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global ultrasonic non-destructive testing (NDT) equipment market will grow steadily during the next four years and post a CAGR of almost 6% by 2020. This market research analysis identifies the identification of new avenues for natural gas exploration as one of the primary growth factors for this market. The unchecked use of fossil fuels has resulted in an exponential increase in hydrocarbon acquisition costs and has also displaced exploration activities. With the oil and gas exploration and production companies concentrating on identifying unconventional avenues for exploration, the natural gas pipeline market will witness a significant growth in revenue. This, in turn, will boost the demand for ultrasonic NDT equipment to examine pipeline properties without damaging them.

When compared to radiography, phased array technology is much safer and is also less time-consuming, less expensive, and offers better output availability. Moreover, it also provides a much better way of detecting planar flaws than radiography and can also be used in non-screened-off areas. Such advantages will result in the increased adoption of phased array equipment, which will be one of the major trends gaining traction in the ultrasonic testing equipment market in the coming years.

Overview of the test and measurement market in Indonesia

Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the test and measurement market in Indonesia will grow steadily during the predicted period and will post a CAGR of about 6% by 2020. This market research analysis identifies the growth of the automotive industry as one of the primary growth factors for this market. This region is the second-largest manufacturer of passenger cars in Southeast Asia, and the constantly increasing investments will result in the region becoming the largest manufacturer of passenger cars in Southeast Asia during the forecast period. The rapid growth in GDP, the increase in low-per-capita car ownership, and the availability of low-cost labor and raw materials will attract more automotive manufacturers to invest in the country, propelling the demand for measuring and test instruments in the coming years.

End-users of test and measurement (T&M) equipment constantly face problems as most of the testing and measuring instruments are incompatible between products. This will induce vendors to conduct interoperability tests to ensure the equipment’s compatibility with different products as it results in the loss of potential customers. The availability of a wide range of electronic and electrical products will lead to the requirement of higher interoperability of T&M equipment as it helps end-users in not being dependent on the use of a particular test and measurement instrument from a single manufacturer for a lifetime.
