A laboratory sieve shaker is a specialized mechanical device used for sieving and separating particles into specific size ranges. Sieving is a crucial process used across various industries such as construction, mining, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, and others for quality control and quality assurance. Laboratory sieve shakers are available in different models based on the type of sieve, mesh size, and the sample quantity. Vibratory sieve shakers provide horizontal, vertical, or orbital motion for effective sieving of powder and granular samples. The global laboratory sieve shaker market is estimated to be valued at US$ 3.5 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 11% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
The global laboratory sieve shaker market is driven by increasing R&D investments in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. Pharmaceutical companies rely heavily on laboratory testing and Quality Control (QC) procedures to ensure product safety and efficacy. Sieve analysis is commonly carried out to assess particle size distributions of APIs and excipients. Furthermore, new product launches catering to niche applications are expected to boost demand. For instance, in 2022, Gilson Company Inc. launched SS-15 laboratory sieve shaker designed for testing powders and granules in the food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Its compact design and flexible stainless steel trays make it ideal for R&D, QA/QC, and production applications.
Increasing trend of new product launches and growing emphasis on Quality Control (QC) in pharmaceutical industry are the key drivers expected to propel the global laboratory sieve shaker market over the forecast period. For example, in 2022, Gilson Company launched its new SS-15 laboratory sieve shaker with compact design and flexible stainless steel trays. This new product launch has enabled Gilson to strengthen its product portfolio and cater to applications across industries such as food, chemicals and pharmaceuticals.
Stringent regulations regarding particle size distribution in the pharmaceutical industry have compelled companies to incorporate efficient sieving techniques for Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality Control (QC). The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires characterization of particle size of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) and excipients to ensure consistency in manufacturing and drug performance. Laboratory sieve shakers enable standardized sieving, thereby meeting regulatory standards.
The laboratory sieve shaker market can be segmented by product type, size, end-use and region. By product type, the market is segmented into mechanical sieve shakers and ultrasonic sieve shakers. Mechanical sieve shakers segment is dominating the market and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period owing to their cost-effectiveness. By size, the market is divided into small (less than 3 inch), medium (3-6 inch) and large (more than 6 inch). Large sieve shakers dominate the market due to need for accurate sieve test in large laboratories. By end-use, the market is segmented into chemical, pharmaceutical, food & beverages and others. Pharmaceutical segment dominates the market due to stringent regulations pertaining sieve testing in pharmaceutical industry.
