Top Three Air and Water Monitoring Companies Have 13% Market Share, But Only 6% in Asia

Asia is the largest market for air and water monitoring equipment. The three largest players have only a 6 percent share of this market even though their world share is over 13 percent. This is the conclusion reached in the McIlvaine Air & Water Pollution Monitoring World.  In 2012, the world air and water monitoring revenues were just under $21 billion. Forty-four percent of the total was in Asia.

All three companies, along with most of the international suppliers, are targeting the Asian market for major growth. Thermo Fisher has established its main air pollution research center in China and has made substantial investment in the region. Because Asian countries tend to adopt international standards, there is an advantage for those suppliers who have been accredited in the U.S. or Europe. Emerson and Thermo Fisher are U.S. based and Endress + Hauser is a European company. These suppliers must compete against international suppliers home based in the developed Asian countries. Yokogawa and Horiba are major players in the international market.
