San Antonio, TX- Verify Markets has released the “United
States Water and Wastewater Analytical Instrumentation Market” report for
2012. The U.S. water and wastewater
analytical instrumentation market was estimated to be over $320 million in
2011. The market is expected to show a steady growth through the forecast
The total U.S. conductivity instrumentation market was the
second largest component of the total market in 2011. The
conductivity instrumentation market is highly fragmented with several
participants. Water reuse, environmental regulations, increasing labor costs, increased
demand for automated smarter and simpler technologies are some of the key
drivers for the online conductivity instrumentation market. Water reuse
and recycling applications, oil exploration, and mining are some of the
industries that have started using online continuous conductivity instruments
in the recent years.
The Total Organic Carbon (TOC) instrumentation market was
estimated to be over $15 million in 2011. Process control and increasing

segments for the total U.S. water and wastewater analytical instrumentation
market. Environmental regulations are one of the key drivers
for pH instruments.
