The particle counters market is projected to reach USD 330.6 million by 2021 from USD 275.9 million in 2016, at a CAGR of 3.7%.
The growing pharmaceutical and semiconductor industries, increasing spending on pharmaceutical R&D, and growth in manufacturing industries in emerging nations are key factors driving the market growth for particle counters. On the other hand, technical limitations of particle counters are expected to restrain the growth of the market to a certain extent.

Based on type, the market is segmented into airborne and liquid particle counters. In 2016, the airborne particle counters segment is expected to command the largest share of the global market. The large share of this segment can be attributed to factors such as increasing cleanroom monitoring in the manufacturing and pharmaceutical industries and growing awareness about indoor air quality monitoring.

On the basis of application, the global particle counters market is segmented into cleanroom monitoring, air quality monitoring, contamination monitoring of liquids, drinking water application, aerosol monitoring and research, chemical contamination monitoring, and other applications. The cleanroom monitoring segment is expected to account for the largest share of the market in 2016. This segment is also projected to register the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2021. The increasing pharmaceutical industry and rising semiconductor industry are expected to augment the demand for particle counters in these applications.

In 2016, North America is expected to account for the largest share of the global particle counters market, followed by Europe, Asia-Pacific, and RoW. The large share of North America can be attributed to the growth of end-use industries for particle counters and increasing use of particle counters in air pollution monitoring. During the forecast period, Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the highest growth, mainly due to the growth in manufacturing in India and China, rising pharmaceutical industry in India, and increasing regulation of high-pollution sectors in China.

The market witnesses high competitive intensity, as there are several big and small firms with similar product offerings. These companies adopt various strategies (expansions; product launches; marketing and promotion; agreements, collaborations, contracts, partnerships, and joint ventures; funding; acquisitions; patent grants, website launches, and product enhancement) to increase their market shares and establish a strong foothold in the global particle counters market.
