    Question Looking for market info on particle size distribution instrumentation

    Dear fellow forum participants:

    I am an student working on a project related to particle size distribution (PSD) analysis instrumentation. I am trained as a chemical engineer.

    I am particularly interested in an overview of the market for the instruments for PSD, especially a break down in terms of industrial segments (who uses this technology), types of technologies employed in PSD and overall market size (total sale of all PSD instruments per year, or any other related info would be very useful.

    Would be most grateful if you could point me in the right direction to find this kind of info.

    Many thanks and wish you a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!

    typical users: pharmaceutical, cement, powder coating, food, paint, electronic components, chemical.
    technologies: laser diffraction, sedimentation, microscopy, time of flight, ultrasonic extinction, and more.

    See NIST guidebook for good overview of many of these technologies.
