Global pH Meter Market 2017-2021
About pH Meter
A pH meter is a scientific device used to calculate the hydrogen-ion activity in water-based solutions. It is used to detect the alkalinity or acidity of a solution, on a numeric scale where 7 is neutral. Solutions with a pH greater than 7 are basic and that with a pH less than 7 are acidic in nature. pH meters are extensively used in food and beverage processing and water and waste treatment industries. Any developments in these industries will directly impact the water treatment equipment market and subsequently the pH meter market.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global pH market to grow at a CAGR of 4.98% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global pH Meter Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global pH market: Emerson, Hach, Hanna Instruments, METTLER-TOLEDO, and Thermo Fisher Scientific.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: OMEGA Engineering, Metrohm, Endress+Hauser Digital Labs, PerkinElmer, Agilent Technologies, Nengshi Analytical Sensor, TECPEL, Adwa Instruments, ThermoWorks, Metrohm, Contech, Swastik Scientific Company, Flinn Scientific, AZ Instrument, PreSens Precision Sensing, Cole-Parmer Instrument Company, UniEquip, CHEMetrics, FLIR Systems, LaMotte, Elico, HORIBA, and Microsep.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Calibration-free pH meter. One of the major challenges for pH meters is the cleaning of probes and electrodes. This increases the overall cost and time for the maintenance of pH meters. The accurate measurement of pH levels also requires well-trained technicians who spend the maximum time maintaining and calibrating pH electrodes, which results in extra costs and manpower. The complex calibration process often leads to the possibility of technical issues and human errors.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Stringent rules on water quality. Various environmental agencies and water governing bodies of respective countries have set certain parameters that water distribution agencies must follow to ensure the distribution of high-quality drinking water to the public. Governments of different countries have also set drinking water quality parameters. Potable water may contain many harmful substances, and it is the responsibility of water distribution agencies to ensure the proper purification of water coming from the source. There are no universally accepted international standards set for drinking water, and different countries have various drinking standards. The permitted concentration of individual pollutant constituent may vary five times from the set of standards from one country to another.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Maintenance issues of pH meters. For obtaining the most accurate results, the proper maintenance and cleaning of pH meters and its parts are necessary, and failing to do so might decrease the shelf life of the equipment. However, it is difficult to clean pH meters because they are delicate and require RO/distilled water.
