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

  • Asia-Pacific (Japan, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia, Rest of Asia-Pacific)
  • Europe (U.K., Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Russia, NORDIC, Rest of Europe)
  • Middle East and Africa (Israel, GCC North Africa, South Africa, Rest of the Middle East and Africa)


The global particle counter market is estimated to garner a revenue of USD 1 Billion by the end of 2033 by growing at a CAGR of ~10% over the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2033. Further, the market generated a revenue of USD 382 Million in the year 2022. The growth of the market is primarily attributed to the growing demand for positive air pressure cleanroom systems which are normally used for research, aerospace, military & defense applications, optics, electronics, and others worldwide. It is observed that an air pressure range of ~0.02 in. to ~0.2 in the water column (H20) is considered normal for positive air pressure cleanrooms operation.

A particle counter diagnoses and monitors the particle contamination within specific clean media that include air, water, and chemicals. It is an essential tool for detecting and counting physical particles. Particle counters are used in clean room laboratories, households, industries, and others to measure and maintain a desired level of cleanliness. With the rising need to maintain air quality index with deteriorating indoor air quality as well as rising household pollution, the demand for particle counters is on the rise amongst households, which in turn, is expected to create massive revenue generation opportunities for the key players operating in the global particle counter market during the forecast period. According to the World Health Organization data, each year ~3.2 million people die due to household air pollution globally.

Global Particle Counter Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Research & Development (R&D) Spending in the Pharmaceutical Industry –The rising demand for aerosol particle counters that are primarily used in the pharmaceutical industry to determine air quality, and the surge in the R&D spending in the industry are expected to propel the particle counter market in the projected period. It is found that the global research and development spending in the pharmaceutical industry reached almost UDS 199 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach around 250 billion by 2025.

  • Increasing Production of Oil – Particle counters are used for contamination analysis of injected water and cleanliness control of water-based hydraulic fluids. It is found that globally, more than 4 billion metric tons of oil are produced every year.

  • Rising Number of Diesel Cars –  The automotive industry needs to follow the new regulations of counting soot particles in the exhaust emission test of diesel cars. It was found that in European Union (EU) ~32% of all registered vehicles in 2020 were diesel.

  • Upsurge in the Number of Hospitals – where the most tightly-controlled spaces are required in terms of monitoring the indoor environment. It was found that in Japan, there were more than 8000 hospital establishments in 2019.


  • High Cost of Product - The expected product life cycle is a crucial factor in determining direct and indirect interest expenses. An out-of-tolerance calibration in regulated businesses does need a deviation report and failure inquiry, costing anywhere between USD 8,000 and USD 12,000 on average.

  • Lack of Awareness Among Target Consumers

  • Huge Investment Required for Developing Cleanrooms

The global particle counter market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into aerosol particle counters, liquid particle counters, and solid particle counters. Amongst these segments, the aerosol particle counters segment is anticipated to garner the largest revenue by the end of 2033, backed by the rising air pollution along with the increasing concern about the rising incidences worldwide. For instance, global air pollution is now the greatest environmental threat to public health. Every year, it accounts for nearly 7 million premature deaths.

Global Particle Counter Market Regional Synopsis

The North America particle counter market, amongst the market in all the other regions, is projected to hold the largest market share by the end of 2033, backed by the presence of a strong military network in the region, growing military expenditure, as well as the rising demand for particle counters amongst the defense sector. It was found that the United States spent over USD 800 billion and was the top nation in terms of military expenditure in 2021.
