A continuous exchange of electrons takes place between the substance in the earth, in air, in water and even in human bodies. This phenomenon of continuous exchange of electrons is known as ION exchange. Oxidation reduction potential (ORP) is the degree to which a substance is capable of reducing or oxidizing another substance. Oxidation is the loss of electrons in which electrons are transferred from one substance to another and reduction is the gain of electrons. Oxidation reduction potential is measured using an electrochemical sensor called ORP sensor.
ORP measurement is needed in variety of processes. One of the key drivers of ORP sensor market is its wide use in swimming pool and food processing units. It is the cost effective method and are mainly used in swimming pool and food processing units to check the contamination level. It is used as an indicator for sanitizing activity. The other factors that can drive the ORP sensor market is its application in water treatment and purification, environmental and wine making. However increase in cost of strategic raw materials price can be a restraint for ORP sensor market.

ORP sensor market can be segmented according to by type, by application, by industry and by region. By type, ORP sensor market can be segmented as laboratory ORP sensor, process ORP sensor and differential ORP sensor. By application, ORP sensor market can be bifurcated as aquarium, wine making, educational & laboratory, printing and graphics, water purification and others. By industry, ORP sensor market can be segmented into Horticulture, Aquaculture, Education, Environmental, Water Treatment and Food & Diary Industry.
Geographically the ORP senor market is divided into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East and Africa (MEA) and South America. North America is expected to dominate the ORP Senor market among other regions due to its application in desalination process. Desalination process is used in North American countries such as the U.S and Canada to obtain usable drinkable water. Furthermore countries in North America have stringent environmental policies regarding disposal waste in water. Asia Pacific is expected to be fastest growing market.
