Abbe Refractometer is a device which is used to measure refractive index of various samples available in liquid and solid state. Nowadays manufacturers are focusing on Abbe refractometers which are equipped with digital display for the purpose of measurement and these are widely adopted in various industries. As Abbe refractometer deals with refractive index, it provides the benefit of measuring the refractive index at different temperatures, pressure and density. Also, it measures the refractive index of foils and viscous materials. Features such as measurement of dispersion, horizontal loading of a prism and convenient reading angles help to boost the demand of Abbe refractometer. Abbe Refractometer is widely used in sectors such as pharmaceutical, chemical and food sector which drives the growth of abbe refractometer market. Abbe refractometers are widely used for determination of sugar concentration, purity control, testing of food and other testing purpose.
Digital Abbe Refractometers Gaining Traction

Digital Abbe refractometers are widely preferred over analog refractometer owing to various benefits offered by these equipments. Refractometers are available in various formats such as benchtop, manual, digital and other various types. Laboratory professionals commonly prefer abbe refractometers which provide precise results and are easy to read. Also these should be easy to calibrate as owing to lack of skilled professionals, demand for easy to use abbe refractometers is rising. Refractometers have become very common in last few years as these have been rapidly adopted for various industrial activities such as water treatment, food & beverage, paints, lubricants, personal care and others.
Other factors which are boosting the growth of abbe refractometers market is stringent food safety and security concerns which are gaining prominence and are boosting the demand of digital abbe refractometers. Refractometers are used for testing of fat, sugar, allergen, and other parameters which play a vital role in food industry.
Also, academic research institutes across the globe have a huge demand for abbe refractometer owing to constant innovation taking place in various fields.
One of the most common restraints of the market are imprecise results offered by abbe refractometer owing to various factors such as temperature, density and wavelength of light. Reliance of abbe refractometers on temperature result in variations in results hence manufacturers are focusing on upgrading abbe refractometers which are capable of offering results in precise manner and are not affected by variations in temperature.
