Environmental Testing Market by Sample (Wastewater/Effluent, Soil, Water, and Air), Contaminant (Microbes, Organic Compounds, Heavy Metals, Residues, and Solids) and Technology (Conventional and Rapid)
The environment testing market is estimated to be valued at USD 9.03 Billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 12.75 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 7.1% from 2017.
The market is driven by increasing regulations pertaining to environment protection, cost- & time-effective customized testing services, and active participation of government and regulatory bodies to monitor environmental conditions.
The environment testing market, based on sample, has been segmented into wastewater/effluent, soil, water, and air. The wastewater/effluent segment dominated this market in 2016, due to growing environmental concern related to waste disposal & treatment and regulations on wastewater/effluent disposal. The water testing segment is projected to be fastest-growing during the forecast period due to the increase in health standards, demand for clean water, and shortage in water supply.
The environment testing market, by contaminant, has been segmented into microbes, organic compounds, heavy metals, residues, and solids. The organic compounds segment dominated the market in 2016 and is projected to be the fastest growing by 2022. This is due to its high level of emissions and sustained growth in consumption, mainly of hydrocarbons.
The environment testing market, by technology, has been segmented into conventional and rapid. The rapid technology segment dominated the market in 2016 and is projected to be the fastest growing by 2022. Low turnaround time, higher accuracy, sensitivity, and the ability to test a wide range of contaminants in comparison with conventional technology are the reasons for the growth of the rapid technology segment.
North America accounted for the largest share in the environment testing market. Several environment-governing organizations are present in the market and have enforced various environment protection policies. The North American environmental testing market addresses various environmental issues such as climate change, acid rain reduction, and greenhouse gas emissions. Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing regional market during the forecast period is driven by infrastructure development such as construction and energy-related projects, growing awareness regarding environmental pollution, and sustainable transformation of environmental policies.
