The global in-line UV-vis spectroscopy market size is expected to reach USD 420.55 million by 2025 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.57%, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Notable technological advancements in the UV-Vis spectroscopic method have accelerated the in-line monitoring of compounds using UV-Vis-spectrometry across various fields, such as environmental monitoring, materials science, pharmaceutical research, and agriculture. The introduction of advanced solutions such as enhanced silicon and InGaAs detectors & Light-emitting Diode (LED) sources have supported the adoption of this UV-Vis Spectroscopy technique, thereby driving the market.
A considerable number of research activities are conducted to evaluate the performance of spectrometry using in-line measurements across various applications. For example, in January 2017, an article was published that demonstrated the implementation of in-line UV-Vis spectroscopy for monitoring & improving Cleaning-in-Place (CIP) of whey filtration plants.
Furthermore, well-established global companies in the cosmetics, beverages, and food industry demand higher standards and lower tolerance limits from the manufacturers. The expanding specifications in product quality measurements are anticipated to accelerated innovations in the market during the forecast period.
