The testing of soil, water, air, sludge, chemicals, petroleum and other for their quality and effects on environment and health is known as Environmental Testing. It is done mostly by manufacturing firms in order to understand the impact of waste or disposals generated from their plant. Environmental protection has been the major global concerns. Growing industrial activities and environmental pollution in emerging countries has resulted in increasing demand for environmental testing and thus the need of Environmental Testing Market emerged.
Environmental Testing Market is estimated to grow at 6.2% CAGR through 2020 suggests market research report by IndustryARC. Environmental laboratory services has all required set up such as test chamber with accurate test environment appropriate for environmental monitoring and environmental engineering. Indoor air quality has to be maintained for proper test conditions.
Environmental Testing Market is prominent in US closely followed by Europe. APAC region is moderately developing in the applications of this market. For example Asbestos is banned in many countries due to its hazardous effect in open air.
Environmental Testing Market is segmented into categories by contaminant, by sample and by technology in IndustryARC market research report for detailed understanding.
By Contaminant – residues, solids, organic compounds, microbiological contaminants and heavy metals
By Sample – air. Water waste, water, soil
By Technology – Rapid method and conventional method
In Environmental Testing Market, the test of Conventional method includes dissolved oxygen determination in water analysis, chemical and biological oxygen demand and culture plate method to detect presence of microbes whereas rapid method includes immunoassay-based methods, advanced spectrometry-based technology, biosensors application, hybridization-based technology, fast in-house testing and chromatography-based technology.
