A viscometer is an instrument used to measure the viscosity of a fluid by measuring the drag caused by relative motion of the fluid and a surface. Viscometers only measure under one flow condition. Globally, development of efficient and advanced technology, rising demand for energy needs, flourishing petroleum industry, increasing food and beverage industry and rising healthcare expenditure are the prime growth drivers of the viscometer market.
In addition, an increase in adoption of viscometer for application in new industrial verticals, and emerging economies such as China, India and others, will create new opportunities for the viscometer market. However, volatile prices and availability of raw materials, lack of ability to measure multi-directional flow, and higher cost of viscometer are the key restraints for the viscometer market.
Geographically, Asia Pacific dominated the viscometer market, followed by North America. Asia Pacific is projected to have the fastest growth, owing to a rapidly increasing refining capacity additions due to growing fuel consumption, rise in industrial sector, and growing pharmaceutical, and healthcare expenditure in developing nations such as China, and India in this region. Among all the applications, petroleum segment has the highest market share in the viscometer market due to a spur in refining capacity, particularly in the Middle East and Asia Pacific. Vibration is the market leader among all technology of viscometer, owing to its suitability for continuous direct viscosity measurement in tanks and/or pipes.
