Tunable Diode Laser Market size was valued at USD 425.9 million in 2022 and is poised to grow at a significant CAGR of 9.3% over 2023–2029. The tunable diode laser is based on Tunable Diode Laser Absorption Spectroscopy (TDLAS), which uses absorption phenomena to measure temperature and concentration. Industries like chemical, petrochemical, oil & gas, metals, and mining, among others, struggle with gas component availability, which slows system performance and degrades processes. For instance, interior corrosion in natural gas pipes can be brought on by moisture and hydrogen sulfide. The oil and gas industry also contains trace (low-concentration) gases such as H2O, CO2, NH3, H2S, and C2H2. Companies involved in these sectors are putting much effort into outfitting their facilities with state-of-the-art gas analyzers that can measure a variety of gas constituents, including H2O, CO2, NH3, H2S, and C2H2, O2, NOx, CH4, and others. Additionally, it has been noted that traditional analyzers such as lead acetate tape for H2S, P2O5 & AL2O3 for moisture exist. However, these analyzers are susceptible to false positives or cross-interferences from other contaminants present during processes in various industries. Additionally, businesses must deal with obstacles including high maintenance costs, frequent calibration, air-conditioned shelters and rooms, accuracy problems with interfering gases, wear and tear on moving parts, and consumables like carrier gas. Due to these difficulties, gas analyzers based on tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS) technology must be more sophisticated and effective. For the measurement of low-range concentration gases in demanding and hostile settings, such as those found in LNG and specialty gas processing plants, petrochemical refineries, and natural gas processing, TDLAS technology is a supplement to conventional analyzer methods. There haven't been many developments in recent years that have improved TDL analyzers. For instance, the J22 analyzer from SpectraSensors is built with the most recent developments in data analysis, multi-functional enclosures, internal diagnostics, and web server communication. These attributes give J22 TDL analyzers the ability to monitor moisture solutions especially. Similar to other analyzers, such as paramagnetic analyzers and NDIR, the cross-pipe GPro 500 TDL gas analyzer from METTLER TOLEDO is built with a cross-pipe, which avoids the alignment problem. It is projected that this demand from many industries will expand shortly after creating profitable prospects for advanced gas analyzers, particularly TDL analyzers.
Tunable Diode Laser Market Key Developments:
In July 2020, Servomex Ltd. has launched the new Ultra Series, a range of analyzers which combines exceptional performance and transformational specifications for the most stringent semiconducting demands. The ultra-series is for ultra-high purity gas analysis at a reasonable cost compared to competing technologies. The ultra-series includes DF-560E NanoTrace ULTRA, DF-750 NanoTrace ULTRA, DF-760E NanoTrace ULTRA, NanoChrome ULTRA, and ULTRACART.
Fastest Growing Market
Industries including chemical and pharmaceutical, power, oil and gas, use boilers extensively. The majority of the market share for power plant boilers is anticipated to belong to the boilers that burn coal as fuel. Burning coal releases small amounts of unburned carbon that are highly reactive and raise pollution levels. The oxygen supply must be increased for proper combustion to decrease the emission of unburned carbon. TDLA is used in various industries to monitor the emission levels at multiple checkpoints, including boilers, DeNOx, and others. Boilers are needed for the growing number of coal-based power plant projects, which is anticipated to drive the TDLA market. The governments of wealthy nations like the United States, the United Kingdom, and Germany are encouraging and developing power plants that use greener energy sources like biomass, biogas, and others. On the other hand, the availability of low-cost, rival technology limits market expansion.
The global tunable diode laser market valued at USD 425.9 Million in 2022 and is expected to grow at 9.3% CAGR over the forecast period 2023 – 2029
