Market Insight- Global Total Carbon Analyzer Market
Total organic carbon is the amount of carbon found in an organic compound. It finds applications as an indicator for water quality or cleanliness of pharmaceutical manufacturing equipment. Total carbon analyzer is the device used to find out the percentage of total organic and inorganic carbon in the water. It is predominantly used in manufacturing and pharmaceutical industries. The total organic carbon analysis is conducted in three different stages namely acidification, oxidation, and detection and quantification. TOC analysis facilitates organizations to find out organic carbon in liquid or water and to confirm its purity.
The global total carbon analyzer market is estimated to account for US$ 1,069.4 Mn in terms of value and 48,135 Units in terms of volume by the end of 2019.
Market Dynamics- Drivers

Market Dynamics- Restraints
- High cost of equipment is expected to restrain growth of the global total carbon analyzer market over the forecast period
Total carbon analyzer is an expensive apparatus, which is not affordable for small enterprises. This, in turn, has impacted its demand, especially in emerging economies. Moreover, small market players from different manufacturing of various products in emerging economies do not afford these high prized equipment. Small market players are in large numbers in emerging economies, which in turn, is expected to hinder the market growth in the near future.
- Stringent government policies in certain countries are expected to hamper the global total carbon analyzer market growth during the forecast period
The government regulations in different countries vary significantly. Majority of total carbon analyzers are either industry or government, thus policies and regulations for the purchase of total carbon analyzers by the government play a crucial role in the demand of the analyzer. For instance, in India, the regional market for total carbon analyzer depends upon initiating a revamping of regulatory norms and on timely approvals of procurement by the government for bringing effective persistent quality of products across various industries.
- Development of cost-effective equipment is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for market players
Total carbon analyzer is expensive equipment, especially for small business owners, which makes them challenging to purchase one. Therefore, market players are investing in research and development activities, in order to manufacture cost-effective total carbon analyzer. For instance, in October 2015, Beckman Coulter Life Sciences introduced QbD1200 Total Organic Carbon (TOC) Analyzer, which was designed for faster and higher TOC sample analysis throughout for a busy QC laboratory.
- Rapid urbanization across the globe is expected to offer significant business opportunities
Rapid industrialization across the world has accelerated urbanization where people are migrating from rural areas to urban areas. High population leads to high waste generation and increasing need for drinking water, which in turn, is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for market players in the near future.
Global total carbon analyzer market was valued US$ 988.3 Mn in 2018 and is forecast to reach a value of US$ 1,989.4 Mn by 2027 at a CAGR of 8.1% between 2019 and 2027. In global total carbon analyzer market, by sample type segment, TC Analyzer for Liquid Sample sub-segment dominated the global total carbon analyzer market in 2018, accounting for 54.8% share in terms of value, followed by TC Analyzer for Solid & Liquid Sample sub-segment.
