Conductivity sensors are devices used to measure the electrical conductivity of a liquid or solution. Such sensors typically consist of two electrodes that are immersed in the liquid being measured and an electrical current is passed between the two electrodes, and the resulting voltage difference is measured. The conductivity of the liquid can then be calculated based on the voltage and the geometry of the electrodes. Conductivity sensors are either contacting or inductive type, and are used in a variety of industries, including food and beverage, pharmaceutical, life sciences, and chemicals to measure the concentration of ions or dissolved solids in liquids which ensure quality control, purity, and accurate dosing of chemicals. The increasing demand for high-quality products, bolstering growth in the F&B and pharmaceuticals sector coupled with the need for efficient monitoring and control of processes in industries are driving the demand for conductivity sensors, thereby propelling their market growth.

The growing food & beverage sector will boost the growth of the conductivity sensors market.

Conductivity sensors are used in the food and beverage industry to measure the concentration of dissolved solids, such as salt, sugar, and acids, in various products such as juices, soft drinks, dairy products, and beer. Conductivity sensors help ensure product quality and consistency by providing accurate measurements of key parameters like the concentration of dissolved solids. The growing demand and consumption of nutritional food & beverages coupled with the growing population has boosted the growth of the food & beverage sector. According to India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF) in 2022, fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) is the fourth-largest sector in the Indian economy, and food and beverages account for 19% of the sector. According to the International Food and Beverage Alliance (IFBA), global food and beverage sales increased by 3.9% in 2020, reaching a value of approximately $8.2 trillion. Such significant growth will boost the demand for conductivity sensors which will positively impact their market growth.

The increase in pharmaceutical production will propel the conductivity sensors market growth.

Conductivity sensors find applicability in the pharmaceutical industry to measure the conductivity of solutions used in drug formulation, as well as to monitor the purity of the water used in manufacturing processes. The pharmaceutical industry needs to ensure efficient monitoring and control of production processes for high-quality pharmaceutical products and stringent regulatory requirements for drug safety and efficiency. Conductivity sensors play a crucial role in helping to ensure that pharmaceutical products meet quality standards and regulatory requirements by providing accurate measurements of key parameters. The growing pharmaceutical production will boost the demand for conductivity sensors. According to the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Association, in 2020, pharmaceutical production in Europe stood at €310,000 million which represented a 5.8% increase over 2019.  Also, as per the Indian Economic Survey 2021, India’s domestic pharmaceutical market stood at US$ 42 billion in 2021 and is likely to reach US$ 65 billion by 2024 and further expand to reach US$ 120-130 billion by 2030.

During the forecast period, the Asia Pacific is expected to hold a significant market share

The Asia Pacific region will account for a major market share due to the rapid growth of key industries, including pharmaceuticals, food & beverage, and chemicals, and a growing population in China and India. In 2021, to support the pharmaceutical industry, the Chinese Government outlined the importance of healthcare in China’s 14th Five-Year Plan and Healthy China 2030 initiative by decreasing inequality in the insurance coverage ranges, increasing access to medicine, and making medicine affordable. On 31st March 2021, as a part of the Prime Minister’s announcement of Aatmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan, the Government of India, approved a Central Sector Scheme, namely the “Production Linked Incentive Scheme for Food Processing Industry” with an outlay of INR 10,900 crores to be implemented for a period of seven years from 2021-2022 to 2026-27 to support Indian brands of food products in the international markets. Such growing developments will boost the demand for conductivity sensors as they are used in food & beverages and pharmaceutical product production, thereby boosting the regional market growth.
