Albany, NY – Demand for water quality sensors is rising, due to water-quality concerns brought on by rapid urbanization, increasing population and ground water pollution, says a report from Transparent Market Research.

The market encompasses handheld meters, multiparameter sondes, conductivity neters, temperature and depth loggers, automatic water samplers, single parameter sensors, online and process monitors, and colorimeters.

More readily available nutrients such as phosphorus and nitrogen means an increase in monitoring activities to control the availability of phosphorus and nitrogen in air and water, the report says. This in turn, increases the demand for water quality sensor equipment.

However, the high cost of production somewhat curtails the market, the report says, adding that nanotechnologies provide better sensitivity because they can detect multiple variables within a short period of time.
