The level of cloudiness or haziness in water has been identified as one of the simplest indicators of water quality. For several decades, turbidity level is used to assess the relative clarity of water. Although other techniques are available to determine the contamination levels in water, turbidity analysis has gained significant acceptance, as it a simple indicator of the overall quality of water. Technological advancements are expected to drive the growth of the turbidimeter market, as novel laser-based procedures are slowly making their entry into the global marketspace. The onset of laser-based procedures has enabled a swift detection of filtration integrity with a high degree of accuracy.

Turbidity measurement is a critical procedure in several industries, including food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, chemicals & materials, and water treatment, among others. While governments across the world, especially of developing countries continue to lay down stringent regulations pertaining to water quality, the demand for turbidimeters is expected to witness substantial growth in the coming years, thus driving the turbidimeter market. Due to the demand from end-use industries coupled with rapid advancements in the turbidity analysis, the turbidimeter market is expected to reach a value of ~US$ 1.5 Bn by 2027 from ~US$ 960 Mn in 2019.
