The PAI/2018 report is a product of a collaboration between Top-Down Analytics (TDA) and PAI Partners. Principals of TDA and PAI Partners developed all estimates of market size and growth, market share and related market data presented herein. PAI/2018 adheres to the product and market definitions established in the five previous editions while exploring new topical issues. Expanding niches for laser-based optical spectroscopy and expanding service opportunities are analyzed while revisiting and updating initiatives including QbD/PAT and NeSSI from earlier editions. Market impacts from Industrie 4.0 have also influenced the findings presented in this update edition. The company index listing of over 450 current and legacy names indicates the scope of our research. A discussion of evolving international process analyzer standards is another important feature.
Our continuing goal is to illustrate and quantify this market opportunity. The next edition of this report is scheduled to be published in 2020. In addition, TDA and PAI Partners offer consulting services to clients with specific requirements on a private basis. Top-down, strategic services include acquisition and divestiture support, diversification measures and opportunity analyses, and strategy development.
PAI/2018 provides worldwide product shipments forecasts for 2016-2022 (by year). These product shipments forecasts are also shown by major end-use market segment and by geographic region. The report identifies the leading suppliers in each of the product market categories. Over 450 supplier and about 90 legacy names are identified in the Company Index.
PAI/2018, as with previous editions, is backed by an extensive research effort incorporating multiple personal contacts with instrument manufacturers, systems integrators and end-users as well as other participants in this marketplace. For the past decade, PAI Partners has presented an annual Process Analyzer Market Update at ISA AD’s Spring Symposium, the premier process analyzer professional gathering in this field. Visuals from the AD/2018 (Galveston, April, 2018) presentation are available on request.
