The global benchtop spectrometer market is experiencing significant growth and is expected to grow considerably in the next few years. Benchtop spectrometers are portable scientific instruments designed for analyzing the composition and chemical properties of different types of matter. A spectrometer divides a matter's physical phenomena into its spectrum, which can then be studied and analyzed scientifically. On the basis of the objective of study, different types of benchtop spectrometers can be used, such as for studying the optical characteristics of a matter; an optical spectrometer is used for measuring the mass-to-charge ratio of ions; mass spectrometers are used; and a Nuclear Magnetic

Resonance (NMR) spectrometer analyses the nuclei in a magnetic field. Furthermore, benchtop spectrometers are used in laboratories and in industries that perform research on matter to innovate their products. For example, industries such as agriculture & food industry, medical & pharmaceutical industry, mining industry, and others heavily rely on research works. Furthermore, the mobility feature, which enables the benchtop spectrometers to be taken to any remote area, is the major factor driving the demand for benchtop spectrometer, especially in the mining industry. In addition, benchtop spectrometers are less expansive and easy to handle, and major players in the benchtop spectrometer industry adopt advanced technologies to increase the efficiency of their products to sustain the competition in the benchtop spectrometer market.

Market Scope and Structure Analysis


Benchtop spectrometers are portable scientific instruments that are very compact and light in weight. This equipment is fairly advanced and includes onboard acquisition and processing software and good connectivity. They are capable of data retrieval, printing, and Internet access. Furthermore, benchtop spectrometers are easy to use and operators do not require special safety or power requirements. In addition, it is easy to install, use, and maintain. This makes them great for the lab, the field, or the classroom.

COVID-19 Impact analysis

  • The COVID-19 pandemic ceased the production of various products in the benchtop spectrometer industry, which is attributed to the global lockdown. This has hampered the growth of benchtop spectrometer market in the years 2020 and 2021, and a similar trend is expected be seen in the first half of 2022.
  • The major demand for benchtop spectrometer was previously noticed from giant developed and developing countries including the U.S., Germany, Italy, the UK, India and China, which are negatively affected by the spread of the coronavirus, thereby declining the demand for benchtop spectrometer.
  • Further, potential long-term impact of the lockdown is currently vague and financial recovery of companies is totally based on their cash reserves. Benchtop spectrometer manufacturers can afford a lockdown only for a few months, after which the players have to modify their investment plans. For instance, various players in the market halted their production activities for several weeks to reduce their expenses. On the contrary, few players adopted employee lay-offs to sustain themselves during the COVID-19 health crisis
  • Benchtop spectrometer manufacturers are expected to focus on protecting their workforce, operations, and supply chains to respond to immediate crises and find new ways of working after COVID-19. For instance, provision of sanitizers, maintaining social distancing, as well as ensuring the vaccination of every employee in the company can assist in promoting the health & safety of the workforce. 

Top Impacting Factors

Increase in government funding and grants for innovation and development of new technology in many countries, including the U.S., China, and Japan, is causing a growth in the research domain, which is increasing demand for benchtop spectrometers. Furthermore, the high mobility and low cost of benchtop spectrometers increase their demand in mining, construction, and other industries over traditional static spectrometers. In research-oriented industries such as nuclear energy sector, electronics & communication sector, agriculture and food sector and others is anticipated to boost the demand in benchtop spectrometer market. . However, many under-developed countries restrain themselves from research due to its high capital requirement. Hence, this factor is responsible for hindering the growth of benchtop spectrometer market. Contrarily, technological developments in benchtop spectroscopy, such as in optics, detection, and computing technology, along with others boost the efficiency of the equipment. This is anticipated to create lucrative opportunities for the growth of the benchtop spectrometer market during the forecast period.

Market Trends

  • New products that contain improved capabilities are launched by leading market players. They take necessary steps to improve accuracy of devices and overall functionality. For instance, in October 2020, in Europe, Bruker Corporation launched the Fourier 80 system, which is an 80 MHz Fourier Transform Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (FT-NMR) benchtop spectrometer. The product launch has enhanced the product offerings by Bruker to sustain the competition in the benchtop spectrometer market.
  • Similarly, competitors in the benchtop spectrometer market adopted acquisition as their key developmental strategy to expand their geographical foothold and upgrade their product technologies. For instance, in July 2021, Techcomp Instruments Limited (Europe) acquired a majority shareholding in Isotopx Limited, based in Middlewich, Cheshire. This move by Techcomp broadens the portfolio of product offerings.
  • Moreover, business expansion strategies assist in enhancing their geographic footprint and help in gaining significant market share for benchtop spectrometer products. For instance, in May 2019, PerkinElmer, Inc., a global manufacturer of spectrometers, opened a new office facility in Singapore. The facility is expected to improve the service offerings for benchtop spectrometer for medical sector consumers in Singapore.
