Tunable diode laser analyzers use extremely responsive and precise measuring signals to support process control systems for better safety, energy efficiency, and productivity of industrial processes, making them a perfect solution for measuring hazardous and corrosive gases. Because of their prompt response, high dependability, resistant nature, minimum downtime, better spectral resolutions, and reduced maintenance costs, these devices are extremely popular in gas monitoring and measurement applications. Additionally, TDLAs are widely used in hydrocarbon processing and power generation applications. Thus, due to the benefits and intriguing properties like real-time monitoring, web-based interface, non-contact measurements, digital signal processing, and connection associated with these devices, the tunable diode laser analyzer market is growing significantly.

Tunable Diode Laser Analyzer Market Highlights

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant influence on the worldwide oil and gas business, as production facilities around the world have been shut down that has led to excess production of oil and gas and low global demand as a result of the global lockdowns. Thus, there was a decrease in demand for tunable diode laser analyser. However, the gradual re-opening of various enterprises and industries as a result of the government's relaxations will prove to be an important growth factor.

Market Segmentation

Insight by Measurement Type

Based on measurement type, the global tunable diode laser analyzer market is bifurcated into in-situ and extractive. The in-situ contributes to the largest share in the market owing to the ease of customization, reduced cost of ownership, and control it provides. Rising measurement errors linked to gas sample conditioning and extraction are expected to drive demand for in situ measurement, which in turn will drive the global TDLA market's growth during the forecast period.

Insight by Gas Analyzer

Based on the gas analyzer, the global tunable diode laser analyzer market is segmented into Oxygen (O2) Analyzer, Ammonia (NH3) Analyzer, Cox Analyzer, Moisture (H2O) Analyzer, HX Analyzer, CxHx Analyzer, and Others. The oxygen analyzer is anticipated to have a high CAGR during the forecast period 2021-2027 due to the robust industrial growth. Oxygen analyzers are used in applications such as combustion control, process quality, safety, and environmental monitoring. These are employed in a range of measurement situations such as power plant boiler trimming, refinery and petrochemical furnace optimization, process safety in vent headers, and ethylene product quality. If the oxygen concentration is outside the predetermined limits, the oxygen analyzer's measurement can be used to trigger other actions, such as the sound of an alarm, hence increasing demand for TDLA throughout these industries.

Insight by End-User Industry

Based on the end-user industry, the global tunable diode laser analyzer market is classified into oil and gas, fertilizer, metal, power generation, healthcare, cement, chemical, pulp and paper, and others. The oil & gas segment dominates the TDLA market owing to the increased demand for low concentration gas detection and sophisticated hydrocarbon gas detection among process activities in oil fields and the petrochemical industry.  Furthermore, TDLAs are widely adopted in natural gas and LNG plants so as to easily detect and remove moisture in the gas streams, resulting in protection from corrosion in the pipelines.   Also, they are deployed in refineries to detect corrosive sulfur compounds, which may incur high operational and maintenance costs for process infrastructure.

The healthcare segment is expected to have a high CAGR during the forecast period 2021-2027 owing to the rising need for precise and robust sample gas analysis, leading to the growth of TDLAs in the healthcare industry.

Industry Dynamics

Industry Trends

The increased adoption of TDLA solutions is enhanced by mounting awareness of the technology like raman analyzers, quantum cascade aLaser analyzers, and cavity ring-down spectroscopy (CRDS). Furthermore the continuous advancement and growth prospects of TDLA market will lead to adoption in various industry verticals such as healthcare, chemical, etc.

Growth Drivers

Factors attributing to the growth of the tunable diode laser analyzer market include rapidly growing industrialization and expansion and upgradation of new power plants, developed features of TDLA, rising demand for boilers, and denox systems in several industries, rising return on investments on installation. The increasing demand to measure harmful gases in emissions, as well as mounting issues about the consequences of hazardous gases in places like mines, gas, and oil fields, are the main market drivers for tunable diode laser analyzers. Furthermore, the mounting automation of processes in several industries, growing opportunities in pharmaceutical and healthcare industries amidst the COVID-19 crisis, mounting innovation to measure temperature, pressure, the mass flux of gas, and stringent rules by governments to adopt this technology along with the escalating need for improving energy-efficiency and safety standards across many industries will accelerate the adoption of tunable diode laser analyzers.


One of the biggest drawbacks of a tunable diode laser analyzer is that it measures atmospheric pressure, which results in broader absorption lines and causes interference from surrounding lines of other atmospheric species. The detection accuracy of a tunable diode laser analyzer can be lowered by even the tiniest amount of noise emitted by the light source or optical system. Also, the high development and infrastructure cost, and lack of awareness about developed technology,  may stymie the growth of the tunable diode laser analyzer market. Furthermore, the reduced prices of competitive technologies to analyze gas such as evolved gas analyzers, and thermal and infrared gas analyzers may further hinder the growth of the market.


The fast-optical analyzer in the TDLA enables measurement for flue gas, a process gas for upstream, midstream, and downstream activities in the cement, oil and gas, and power generating industries.
