The rising developments by major players are projected to present huge industry growth opportunities. For instance, in March 2020, ATS Scientific partnered with Microtrac MRB, as their Canadian distributor & service provider. The SYNC laser diffraction system is expected to be incorporated in the ATS Scientific Technology Centre.

From region to region, there is a considerable impact on the demand for particle size analysis market on account of the considerable effect that the pandemic had on the purchasing power of the buyers and the global economy. The onset of the COVID-19 reflects the downfall of the demand owing to the unprecedented restrictions on movement along with the disruptions in personal and business activities. The disruption in the supply chain, lockdown measures, and limited consumer and corporate spending is anticipated to hamper the industry development.

The pandemic spread had a negative impact on the end-users, thus affecting the growth of the industry directly. However, the particle size analysis market demand is projected to bounce back in the forecasting years as the governments across nations are uplifting lockdown restrictions and the economy is booming up again. Additionally, the rising investments across the pharmaceutical sector on account of the virus spread are anticipated to present huge growth opportunities.
