Refractometers Market
A refractometer is used to measure the extent of light bending, when it travels from air to any other
medium. Refractive index is determined till five digit precision and for most of the compounds, reactive
index is between 1.3000 and 1.7000. Refractive index is based on the wavelength of light and
temperature of the sample. Refractive index identification is done for various applications including
petroleum, agriculture and food and beverages. Most common industrial application is determination of
dissolved solute in liquid samples.
Refractometer is mainly used for measuring dissolved content or substances in solutions, particularly
related to sugar content. Refractometers are thus, used to measure critical angle of refraction of a
sample. Refractometer helps to analyse different properties of a particular sample such as salinity or
sugar content, sweetness in beverages, hydrocarbon content of motor fuels, and blood protein in the
given sample. Factors such as accuracy, location of measurement, compatibility with other instruments,
sample throughput have an impact on the selection of proper refractometer.
In measuring sugar content, BRIX measurement has gained significant traction in recent years. Increasing
consumer inclination towards nutritional information among food products has led manufacturers to
develop measures to analyse such information. For instance, to analyse sugar concentration, BRIX
instruments are used by food manufacturers. Conventionally, BRIX measurement was done through
pycnometer, BRIX hydrometer and Abbe refractometer. Nowadays, BRIX measurement is done through
digital refractometers and digital density meters. Refractometers are a modern way of measuring BRIX
ensuring reproducible and rapid results.

Refractometers Market Segmentation:
Refractometers market is segmented on the basis of refractometer type, product type and end-use
industry. On the basis of refractometer type, the refractometer market segmentation includes portable
and benchtop refractometers. Portable refractometers are anticipate to gain significant traction among
end users, which is mainly attributed to factors such as ease of use, comprehensive result storage and
easy handling of the refractometer when compared to benchtop refractometers. Different types of
refractometers include traditional handheld refractometers, laboratory refractometers, inline
refractometers and digital handheld refractometers. Of which, digital refractometers are anticipated to
gain significant traction among end use industries. On the basis of end-use industry, refractometers
market is segmented into gemology, food processing, oil industry, pharmaceuticals, paint, sugar
refineries, research centers and schools.
Geographically, refractometers market is segmented into seven regions including Japan, Middle East and
Africa, Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific excluding Japan, Western Europe, Latin America and North America.
North America is one of the prominent market for refractometer, which is anticipate to remain dominant
over the forecast period. However, adoption of refractometers for analysing food and beverage industry
is expected to record significant growth during the forecast period.

Refractometers Market
Refractometers Market Dynamics:
Increasing technological advancements leading towards shift from manual to automatic measures for
analysing refractometry is driving the demand for refractometers among end users. In addition, quality
analysis of parameters in food and beverage products such as composition and concentration of a juice,
information regarding sugar content in food and beverage products has led towards development of
enhanced refractometers. This is intended to ensure reliable and quick analysis resulting in valuable
information about composition in the finished product. However, proper calibration is a concern for
manufacturers, as it leads to less adoption among end users. This indirectly restricts the refractometers
market growth globally. In order to mitigate calibration issue, few refractometer manufacturers have
developed products ensuring proper calibration through self-calibration property at an affordable price.
Refractometers Market Key players:
Some of the players in the refractometers market include Mettler-Toledo International Inc., Anton Paar
GmbH, Hanna Equipments India Pvt.Ltd., Rudolph Research Analytical and Xylem Analytics, among
others. Refractometer manufacturers are focused on developing products ensuring real-time
measurement of advanced features such as color, conductivity, oxygen content, sugar inversion,
alcohol content and others.
