Atomic Spectroscopy Market Scope

The global atomic spectroscopy market is likely to witness vast demand in the years to come. Growth in forensic laboratories, academia, agriculture, biomonitoring, and nuclear energy would drive market growth. Atomic spectroscopy helps determine the elemental atoms composition of a sample using electromagnetic radiation or mass spectrum. Atoms absorb or emit energy wavelengths that can be used to identify and quantify elements. Atomic spectroscopy is widely used in environmental chemistry, geology & soil science, mining & metallurgy, food sciences, and medicine.

AI is being used in spectroscopy for spectral identification & interpretation, data preprocessing, predictive modeling, automation, feature selection, anomaly detection, quality control, and material discovery. AI algorithms can help identify and interpret spectral data by comparing it to large spectral databases and providing an output that researchers can more easily understand.

Competitive Landscape

The atomic spectroscopy market appears highly competitive, with many well-established players forming a competitive landscape. Market players adopt strategic approaches such as mergers & acquisitions, product & technology launches, expansion, and collaboration to gain a larger competitive share. Players make substantial investments to drive the R&D required for innovation and product launch. They also invest in increasing the global footprint and acquiring promising companies from emerging markets.

For instance, on Jan. 24, 2023, P S Analytical, a leading manufacturer and supplier of chemical analysis instrumentation, announced that its newly developed Millennium Merlin 1631 AFS system has become the ideal choice for seawater analysis, offering excellent sensitivity in the ppt range, wide linear working ranges, ease of use, and a rapid RoI.

P S Analytical's instruments can analyze substances such as Arsenic (As), Mercury (Hg), Selenium (Se), Bismuth (Bi), Antimony (Sb), and Tellurium (Te) in all matrices. The high TDS or polyatomic spectral issues do not affect the system specifically designed for Hg analysis in seawater. The analyses can also be used to determine mercury in other environmental matrices such as drinking water, wastewater, soils, sediments, and sludges.
