The global osmometers market primarily comprises medical devices used to measure osmotic concentration or osmolality in biological fluids like blood serum or urine. An osmometer uses the principle of freezing point depression where a sample is cooled and the temperature at which it freezes is detected. The lower the freezing point, higher is the concentration of dissolved particles like salts, glucose etc. Osmolality testing is commonly done on patients with diabetes to check glucose levels, during kidney function analysis to detect electrolyte imbalances, and for other clinical diagnostic purposes.
The global osmometers market is estimated to be valued at US$ 150.2 million in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 15% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Growing demand for clinical diagnostics across the world is expected to drive the osmometers market during the forecast period. With rising incidence of lifestyle diseases like diabetes and increasing healthcare spending, demand for diagnostic tests has increased significantly. According to the International Diabetes Federation, around 537 million adults were living with diabetes in 2021 worldwide and the number is projected to rise to 643 million by 2030 and 783 million by 2045. Early and accurate diagnosis plays a crucial role in managing diseases like diabetes. This has propelled the need for reliable tools like osmometers in laboratories and pathology clinics. Furthermore, technological advancements resulting in more efficient and user-friendly osmometers will support the market growth over the coming years.
The global osmometers market is dominated by the freezing point osmometers segment which accounts for over 40% of the market share. Freezing point osmometers are preferred for their accuracy, reproducibility and the ability to perform measurements on small sample volumes. They provide precise osmolality measurements by determining the freezing point depression of solutions.
