The determination of moisture is a critical factor in manufacturing to maintain product quality. Moisture analysis is applicable across multiple industries where moisture content is highly controlled. Near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy is used to identify water content in a wide range of materials. NIR moisture meter is a moisture control and measurement system designed for continuous monitoring of products and uses near infrared reflectance (NIR) technology. This information is used to determine whether the product is ready for use or is in need of further inspection.
Near-infrared (NIR) analysis offers numerous benefits over conventional analysis methods. Additionally, the benefit of accurate results in short period of time has encouraged utilization of NIR moisture meters in manufacturing companies. This technique measures qualitative and quantitative moisture content, thus reducing over-processing of products and enhancing production. However, increased usage of spectrometry in the drug safety process is expected to fuel the growth of NIR moisture meters and component market during the coming years. The focus of manufacturing companies on decreasing operating expenditure through better process control is additionally driving the market growth. The lack of skilled labor is a key challenge for the players operating in this market.
The NIR moistures meters and component market is segmented by solution, by end-use and by moisture meters type. There numerous NIR moisture meter solutions including food moisture meters, textile moisture meters, coal moisture meters, tobacco moisture meters, paper moisture meters, concrete moisture meters, digital moisture meters, wood moisture meters, drywall moisture meters, lumber moisture meters, gypsum moisture meters, and others. The components considered in this study are NIR dry filter, NIR led screen, NIR moisture sensor, dust shields, vortex cooler, NIR opto-port and others.
