The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is the calibration-free pH meter. One of the major challenges for pH meters is the cleaning of probes and electrodes. This increases the overall cost and time for the maintenance of pH meters. The accurate measurement of pH levels also requires well-trained technicians who spend the maximum time maintaining and calibrating pH electrodes, which results in extra costs and manpower. The complex calibration process often leads to the possibility of technical issues and human errors.
One of the major drivers for this market is the stringent rules on water quality. Various environmental agencies and water governing bodies of respective countries have set certain parameters that water distribution agencies must follow to ensure the distribution of high-quality drinking water to the public. Governments of different countries have also set drinking water quality parameters. Potable water may contain many harmful substances, and it is the responsibility of water distribution agencies to ensure the proper purification of water coming from the source. There are no universally accepted international standards set for drinking water, and different countries have various drinking standards. The permitted concentration of individual pollutant constituent may vary five times from the set of standards from one country to another.
