"Stiff Confrontation Separates the Three Water Testing Equipment by Close Quarters"

All the three testing equipment segmented by testing parameters run in close quarters in terms of market value in 2017. All three factors including physical, chemical and biological factors play a major role in quantifying the quality of water tested. Physical factors pH, total dissolved solids (TDS), turbidity, hardness and total organic carbon (TOC) among others are measured by physical parameter water testing equipment and are extensively used for residential, industrial, pharmaceuticals, and municipal water quality checks. Chemical parameter check includes checking presence of heavy and hazardous molecules of metals and other chemical elements plays a vital role in industries, healthcare and pharmaceuticals sectors. Although on the expensive side, biological parameter water testing equipment tests coliforms, biological oxygen demand (BOD) and chemical oxygen demand (COD).

"Handheld Equipment made its Way Through Other Product Type to Claim its Supremacy"

Handheld and portable water testing equipment lead the market in terms of market value. Handheld equipment is the most widely used equipment across different end-use sectors owing to their convenience and small size. Although the testing range of such equipment is limited to some degree compared to portable and Benchtop equipment, handheld is preferred by most of the end-user including industrial, hospitality and agricultural sectors. Portable equipment trails handheld equipment by close market value. In terms of accuracy and precision, benchtop equipment beats other variants and hence extensively used in research & development and healthcare end-users. Despite all factors, handled water testing equipment projected to expand at a considerable rate owing to this rate of adoption across several end-use applications.

"Strict Regulation and Additional Quality Check at Every Level Lifted Water Testing Equipment Market in North America"

In 2017, America leads the global water testing equipment market followed by Europe and Asia Pacific in terms of market value. North America including the U.S. and Canada have strict regulation and guidelines with respect to quality of water. The water is checked for its quality of consumption and usage at every step and no deviation from standard value is accepted in these countries. This encouraged procurement of advanced water testing equipment for precise and accurate output at regular intervals. Europe claims a recognizable share as almost all the countries in Europe follows European Drinking Water Directive for water safety. Exploding population, growing awareness and scarcity of drinking water concentrate together with a perfect formula for growth of water testing equipment market in Asia Pacific. Consequently, Asia Pacific projected to grow with the fastest CAGR throughout the forecast period from 2018 to 2026.
