DUBLIN, June 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

The "Silica Analyzer Market by Type (Equipment and Consumables), Industry (Power Generation (Utility, Captive/IPP), Semiconductor), and Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World) - Global Forecast to 2023" report has been added to's offering.

Research and Markets Logo

The silica analyzer market is estimated to grow from USD 106.1 million in 2018 to USD 139.6 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 5.66% between 2018 and 2023.

Among many potential impurities in the steam cycle, silica plays a vital role because the solubility of silica in steam directly depends on the density and temperature of the steam. Any minor deviation of silica concentration on a power plant can have serious and expensive consequences in relation to performance, reliability, efficiency, and safety. The growth of this market is propelled by the significance of accurate silica measurement in steam/water for optimizing power plant efficiency.

Consumables are expected to dominate the market in the near future as they are frequently replaced and/or refilled. The consumables of the silica analyzers are the reagents such as molybdenum blue.

The market for the power generation industry is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Silica analyzers are used to monitor the silica content of the feeder water used in boilers. This water, if not monitored, can leave deposition on the turbine, thereby decreasing the efficiency of the power generation. Three or more than three silica analyzers are used in power plants.

The market in APAC is expected to hold the largest share by 2023. The region has a high potential for silica analyzers. APAC, having massively populated countries such as China and India, is one of the largest energy consumers. India has more coal-fired power plants relying on for power generation as coal is readily available. Same is the case with China having coal-fired power plants.

One of the key factors restraining the growth of the silica analyzer market is the regular maintenance and replacement of parts and consumables in silica analyzer equipment. The sample bottles containing reagents, such as molybdate 3 reagent and citric acid/surfactant reagent, are to be filled regularly for continuous functioning of silica analyzers.

Also, sample bottles must be cleaned regularly. A tubing kit or the connecting tubes used in silica analyzers are also to be cleaned regularly for accurate analysis of the sample. For any physical damages happening to these consumable, replacement is the only option. This regular maintenance or replacement of these consumables can be a restraint for the silica analyzer market as it increases the total cost of ownership.

Hach is a well-known brand in water chemistry and analysis for both lab and inline products. It established a leadership position in water analyzers owing to its best-in-class and innovative products. For instance, the company provides a pump-free silica analyzer, which offers seamless operation as it does not require frequent maintenance. Hach not only strengthened its installation base but also broadened its silica analyzer product line with the acquisition of POLYMATRON.

Furthermore, Hach has recently acquired AppliTek in October 2017, which has increased its product portfolio of online silica analyzer in the market and has increased its geographic presence.
