Process spectroscopy refers to the specific method of scrutinizing the relations between light, electromagnetic radiation, and matter. Typically, benchtop, portable, micro, and hyphenated spectroscopes, amplifiers, microscopes, display units, and signal processors are all used in process spectroscopy. It is adopted in a wide range of processes, such as Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR), Raman spectroscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), and Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIR). The technology splits radiation into its different wavelengths to examine different ions, protons, and electrons. This technique is extensively used in biological research, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, water and wastewater management, and electronics sectors.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a moderate impact on the process spectroscopy market owing to its wide adoption in the pharmaceutical sector to detect SARS-CoV-2.
