Since the creation of the sensor and integrated circuit (IC) industries both have steadily delivered greater value to their customers by increasing the functionality of their products while reducing unit costs. In so doing both industries recognized the enormous potential of integrating sensors into microprocessor-controlled devices. Today, we see the results of the convergence of sensors with new products in the form of video games that replace controllers with hand motions, blood-sugar monitoring devices that requires diabetics to draw less blood and a host of less visible industrial products.  This study examines one important class of those industrial products that have benefited from the sensor-microdevice convergence: portable analysis instrumentation (PAI).

As pointed out in our 2009 study, improvements in PAI that occurred in the early years of the 21st century arose from the maturation of sensor and integrated circuit (IC)technologies. In many applications PAIs held the promise of being truly transformational, although not all applications would see the technology mature at the same rate. In environmental monitoring PAI technology rapidly reached its natural plateau, offering sufficient selectivity and sensitivity for intended end-users. A field ecologist’s instrumentation does not require 10-digit precision. In other cases—instrumentation on planetary space probes offer an excellent example—the core technology itself runs ahead of the end-users’ understanding.  To use a sports analogy: Not every everyone playing junior varsity (JV) football can fit into the varsity team’s shoulder pads, but it is reasonable to predict that one day everyone member of the JV team will. Technologically progress motivates a reexamination of the topic. The speed of that progress is evident in the final chapter of this study that provides abstracts of some 200 inventions related to PAIs that received patents between the spring of 2009 and summer of 2012. Second, the economic situation has changes profoundly since 2009.

This study will interest these groups of professionals:

  • Managers responsible for field-level data collection activities related to manufacturing, scientific research, and regulatory enforcement and compliance.
  • Executives responsible for improving their organization’s field data acquisition activities.
  • Design engineers specializing in sensors, application-specific integrated circuits and instrument packaging.
  • Manufacturers of portable instrumentation.
  • Sensor manufacturers.
  • Integrated Circuit (IC) suppliers.
  • Application-Specific Integrated Circuit ASIC service providers.
  • Investors exploring opportunities in the activities described above.

The scope of this study is the PAI market, a subset of the larger analysis equipment market. The diverse nature of the PAI market paradoxically requires that to be useful its forecasts need to be specific for both for types of devices for which demand is forecast and also in identifying the geographic markets in which those devices are used. In most cases, technologically drives technological markets. In the case of PAIs the situation is more nuanced, with broader economic and political circumstances also influencing demand. For example, the demand for PAIs for environmental monitoring is influenced both by the expansion of industries that create discharges into the air and water and also by national laws that seek to mitigate the depredation of those resources.

The broad scope of the PAI market requires that forecasts show demand for both types of PAIs and the demand for those devices at the country level. In this study, we provide that data with a set of 17 devices by country forecast tables and 52 countries by device tables. To aid readers in better understanding the areas in which technology will exert its greatest influence we have included two additional sets of information: comprehensive patent data consisting of the abstracts of 189 recent inventions directly related to PAIs, with more detailed patent information on three devices that rise to the level of disruptive technologies. All forecast tables use the format in presenting values in current U.S. dollars for 2013 through 2018. A set of informational tables place the forecasts in context of the distribution of national manufacturing activity and the number potential PAI-using personnel.

This report provides:

  • An overview of several identified categories of portable analysis instrumentation and several application areas in which field-based portable analysis instrumentation can effectively be used
  • Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2012, estimates for 2013, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2018
  • Discussion of the industry on a worldwide basis, from a product perspective as well as a technology perspective
  • Examination of regulations in the U.S. and global markets to identify consumer safety, product introduction, and product safety regulatory issues for stakeholders and potential stakeholders in this industry
  • Consideration of current trends and other available data indicating company, product, and application stability or instability
  • Comprehensive company profiles of major players.
