Sales Analysis of Trace Moisture Generator (2017-2021) Vs. Market Forecast Outlook (2022-2032)

The cap potential of the device to generate moisture at tiers as little as 14 nano-mol/mol (elements in line with billion) makes it the maximum favored attribute of generators amongst end-users. The value of a desk-bound hint moisture generator is extra than transportable turbines, prompting purchasers to shift toward the latter.

Resilient growth of end-use application industries such as microelectronics, pharmaceuticals & medical gas, natural gas, and petrochemical which require moisture control at levels as low as nano-mol/mol (parts per billion) has flourished the demand for trace moisture sensing equipment. Stationary trace moisture generators can generate moisture in the range of parts per billion and frost point up to -100 degree C which is much lower as compared to portable trace moisture generators.

  • Short Term (2022 Q2 to 2025): Augmenting utilization and integration of trace moisture generators in pharma and chemical industries to positively impact trace moisture generator market growth.
  • Medium Term (2025-2028): The U.S and Russia are anticipated to witness high trace moisture generator demand on the back of the increasing petrochemical and R&D industries in these countries.
  • Long Term (2028-2032): According to Federal Aviation Authority and International Civil Aviation Organization recommendations, trace moisture generator automation system is an apt solution for monitoring and individual switching of the airfield lights.

Over the 2017-2021 historical period, the global trace moisture generator market registered a CAGR of 3.7%, and according to the Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the market is projected to exhibit growth at 3.8% CAGR between 2022 and 2032.

What’s Driving Demand for Trace moisture generators?

“Surge in Demand for Semiconductors to Support Technological Advancement”

The global electronics industry is undergoing a boost, owing to huge disruption in electronics that leads to an increased demand for microelectronics. Innovations such as artificial intelligence and the internet of things (IoT) contribute to the huge demand for microelectronic materials such as semiconductors.

Fabrication of semiconductors is a highly quality-centric process and consists of several sets of standards. Several preventions must be taken in the manufacturing of semiconductors, including moisture control. Specialized trace moisture analyzers are used to detect such trace levels of moisture

A trace level of moisture such as 1 PPM can react with the chemicals involved in the fabrication of semiconductors and damage the product. Hence, moisture in the gases involved in the fabrication of the semiconductors can be controlled. Hence, the growing semiconductor industry to rise the demand for trace moisture generators.

“Rising demand for perovskite solar cells to boost sales of trace moisture generators”

Perovskites have numerous properties like superconductivity, magnetoresistance, and the ability to enable low-cost & efficient photovoltaics. PSCs are expected to play an important role in the automotive industry. Perovskite PVs deteriorate rapidly if they come in contact with moisture. Traceable levels of moisture can also react with perovskite, and reduce its ability to function.

The energy sector is one of the prominent and large revenue contributing sectors in the global economy. Increased need for electricity generation and distribution is witnessed, attributable to the progress in the lower middle income and higher middle-income countries in the world.

Elements of power generation and distribution such as electrical insulators and motor windings are adversely affected by moisture. It becomes mandatory to control moisture levels in power generation and distribution equipment, which boosts the use of trace moisture generators, as these devices are used for the calibration of trace moisture analyzers.

What Do Trace Moisture Generator Manufacturers Need to Watch Out for?

Higher operational costs and less efficiency of the device limit its sales.”

A trace moisture generator consists of pre saturator, chamber fluid, air input filters, circulation pump motor, reservoir, etc., which must undergo periodic maintenance in order to ensure proper functioning and optimization of the efficiency of the equipment.

Additionally, a trace moisture generator includes technical aspects, which makes it mandatory for end users to employ skilled labor in order to operate the equipment.

Trace moisture generators that are highly sensitive to the surroundings are mostly used in laboratories Typical laboratory environments are uneven and dynamic with all kinds of temperature gradients, air patterns, and humidity and heat influences, which results in uneven energy consumption by the trace moisture generator thereby failing to give correct results. All these factors restrain the growth of the market.

Will Russia Petrochemical Industry Lead to High Demand For Trace Moisture Generator?

Russia is one of the leading countries in the production of petrochemicals and natural gas. Russian companies have invested enough in petrochemical production capacity, preferring crude oil and some basic refined products.

The Russian petrochemical industry is largely dominated by big companies, the major manufacturers being Rosneft, LUKOIL, Sibur, and Gazprom. Many Russian oil companies want to invest their money in greenfield petrochemical production sectors. Due to the abundance of natural gas in Russia, the emphasis is also on ethylene as a raw material.

The demand for compressed natural gas, and it is being bought into use at a faster pace through applications such as vehicles. Hence, the measurement of moisture in CNG is an important parameter for the processing, storage, and transportation of CNG globally. Owing to the country's penetration in the petrochemical industry, the trace moisture generator market is poised to grow and capture market share of 10.1% in 2022 in the European region.

Why is the U.S. Trace Moisture Generator Market Expected to Be Highly Lucrative?

Why are Trace Moisture Generators Most Widely Used in Pharma & Medical Gas?

As the global population is increasing, the demand for medication and pharmaceuticals is also increasing substantially, attributable to the increased rate of lifestyle diseases.

The pharmaceutical industry is one of the most quality-centric industries, and it is regulated by governments in various countries as it is directly connected with the health of the people. On the back of these factors, players in this industry must ensure high accuracy in terms of the chemical composition due to the sensitivity of the products.

Similarly, trace moisture determination and control in the medical gases is also essential. Medical gases must be manufactured with a minimum level of moisture in accordance with international standards.

Trace moisture control in pharmaceutical products and medical gases is crucial, as the chemical and molecules utilized in these products are extremely sensitive, and can be easily adulterated by variations in moisture. This creates the need for periodic calibration of trace moisture analyzers, which supports the growth of the trace moisture generator market.

Will Trace Moisture Generator Market Growth be Led by Chemical Industry

The chemical industry is regulated by several rules and standards mandated by various government agencies and organizations. These regulations and standards help maintain basic safety levels for consumables and non-consumables. For example, the European Union's REACH regulation clearly states that the exact composition of chemicals in all products sold in that region should be mentioned on the product.

This factor has led to a significant increase in the demand for moisture analyzers from the chemical industry to ensure that chemical compositions meet strict standards and are of the highest quality, supporting the growth of the trace moisture generator market The industry size of trace moisture generator due to chemical sector is expected to reach US$ 3.2 million by 2022 end.
