The global paper moisture metre market is expected to be worth US$ 5.2 billion by 2032, with sales increasing at an 8.1% CAGR from 2022 to 2032. In 2022, the market was estimated to be worth US$ 2.1 billion. The significant growth of the paper moisture metre market during the projection period is attributed to the urgent requirement to determine ideal drying times and detect moisture streaks during the paper production process. Furthermore, rising demand for paper moisture metres from paper mills, paper producers, and manufacturers, as well as initiatives by government and non-governmental organisations, will drive the paper moisture metre market forward.
In the past, the paper moisture metre market was estimated to be worth US$ 1.7 billion in 2021. Whether stored in paper bales or sheets in commercial printing warehouses or in roles in paper-converting plants, the porous surface of paper regularly absorbs moisture that is relevant to the humidity of the environment. In flat paper products, moisture causes waves, buckling, and curling, which is troublesome. Furthermore, moisture can keep inks, varnishes, paints, and dyes from saturating, resulting in improved coverage for papers during processing and printing. These reasons will encourage the use of paper moisture metres in a variety of industries in the coming years.

The market is also driven by the growing adoption of digital meters and the availability of a wide range of meters. Increasing adoption of digital meters to measure the moisture content in paper and different paper products including brown packaging paper, coated paper, cardboard, wrapping paper, craft paper, recycled paper, corrugated boxes, paperboard, and butcher paper will boost the paper moisture meter market growth. Furthermore, access to different varieties of paper moisture meters that offer various moisture measuring techniques also augurs well for the market. In recent developments, numerous manufacturers are coming up with nondestructive and destructive methods to measure moisture content. In addition, the elevated demand for standard pinless paper moisture meters that ensure nondestructive measurement of moisture will drive the market forward during the projection period.
Though the market is expected to undergo positive prospects in the next couple of years, it is not without its share of challenges. The use of a pin paper moisture meter results in the formation of two holes in the surface of a particular object and also provide abnormally high moisture readings. These aspects will likely stymie the growth of the paper moisture meter market during the assessment period.
