The PAI report is a product of a collaboration between Top-Down Analytics (TDA) and PAI Partners. Principals of TDA and PAI Partners developed all estimates of market size and growth, market share and related market data. The upcoming PAI/2020 report will adhere to the product and market definitions established in the previous editions while also exploring new topical issues such as the expanding niches for laser-based optical spectroscopy and growing service opportunities in the industry. Market impacts from Industrie 4.0 have also influenced the findings presented in this update edition. The company index listing of over 450 current and legacy names indicates the scope of our research. A discussion of evolving international process analyzer standards is another important feature.

Our continuing goal is to illustrate and quantify this market opportunity. In addition, TDA and PAI Partners offer consulting services to clients with specific requirements on a private basis. Top-down, strategic services include acquisition and divestiture support (i.e., due diligence), diversification measures and opportunity analyses, and strategy development.

​PAI/2020 provides worldwide product shipments forecasts for 2018-2024 (by year). These product shipments forecasts are also shown by major end-use market segment and by geographic region. The report identifies the leading suppliers in each of the product market categories.

As with previous editions, this report is backed by an extensive research effort incorporating multiple personal contacts with instrument manufacturers, systems integrators and end-users as well as other participants in this marketplace. TDA and PAI Partners have presented an annual Process Analyzer Market Update at ISA AD’s Spring Symposium, the premier process analyzer professional gathering in this field.
