pH meters industry can be traced back to 1909 with the introduction of pH scale by Søren Sorensen. The first pH meter was developed by Arnold Beckman in 1934. Later in 1936 the pH meter was successfully sold in the market and in 1937 electrodes were redesigned that possessed better compatibility. Since past years, the pH meters industry has evolved considerably but recently developed pH meters follow more or less the same design and working pattern. However, pH meters market is not completely saturated and hence, new players willing to enter this market have significant growth opportunities. Developed countries have been explicitly utilizing the pH meters in research as well as other industrial applications. Also, as the industry is in the developed stage, there is enough awareness regarding pH meters in developing as well as underdeveloped economies. Usually, underdeveloped economies are not explored by the key leaders. Therefore, new entrants will have numerous opportunities to create brand position by penetrating emerging economies with significant potential.
