Purchasing power in the couPurchasing power in the country is expected to fell nearly by 2.5%. On the other hand, European countries to see the worst coming in the form of energy crisis especially in upcoming winters!! Right after COVID-19, inflation has started gripping the economies across the globe. Higher than anticipated inflation, especially in western world had raised concerns for national banks and financial institutions to control the economic loss and safeguard the interest of the businesses. Increased interest rates, strong USD inflated oil prices, looming prices for gas and energy resources due to Ukraine-Russia conflict, China economic slowdown (~4% in 2022) disrupting the production and global supply chain and other factors would impact each industry negatively.                                                         Request Insights

A spectrometer is an instrument used for measuring wavelengths of light.

Any of various analytical instruments in which an emission (as of particles or radiation) is dispersed according to some property (such as mass or energy) of the emission and the amount of dispersion is measured can be called a spectrometer. Portable spectrometers / handheld spectrometers allow researchers to analyze samples on the go. Perfect for applications like field analysis of samples, identifying raw materials, and forensic analysis, these versatile instruments offer analysis capabilities similar to benchtop models.With the recent advancements smartphone devices as well as smartphone spectroscopy, the demand for mobile and portable spectrometersis on the rise amongst the smartphone users, which in turn, is expected to create massive revenue generation opportunities for the key players operating in the global mobile and portable spectrometersmarket during the forecast period.For instance, more than 72% of the United States population used smartphones in 2020.

Global Mobile and Portable Spectrometers Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers
