Chromatography (Instruments and Reagents) Global Market 2015 - Forecast to 2019
Chromatography is an analytical technique, a method of separating and identifying the component of a complex mixture by differential movement through a two phase system.
Over the decades the scientists have considered chromatography as an esoteric art, which mainly involves instruments and reagents. The instrumentation includes all the traditional methods of TLC (Thin-Layer Chromatography) to the advanced UHPLC (Ultra High Performance Liquid Chromatography) instruments. The sub components of the instruments include columns, filters, peristaltic pumps, a fraction collector, a fixed wavelength UV detector, a strip-chart recorder, a solvent recycler and so on. The reagents are used to improve selectivity in the technique analyses or separations, the various reagents include silica gel, DEAE-cellulose, Brij 35, Methyl orange and so on.
The instruments and reagents are mainly used in HPLC (High Performance Liquid Chromatography), Ion chromatography, Flash chromatography and so on. The global chromatography instrumentation market is segmented based on systems, consumables, and end users. Whereas, the global reagents market is segmented based on types, techniques, and end users.
The chromatography reagents market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 11% by 2019, while the instruments market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 6%. The factors such as increase of global biotech and pharmaceutical firms, government funds and shares, technological advancements, and new product launches are the major drivers for the chromatography market. Whereas, high cost, need for the expertise professionals and presence of other substitute techniques are the factors limiting the chromatography market growth. However the increasing usage in monoclonal antibody purification, growing proteomics market and new products are providing the opportunities for the chromatography market growth.
North America is considered to be the global leader in the chromatography market. The favourable growth is due to expansion of pharmaceutical and biotech firms. The rising government funding is boosting the market growth in the Asia-Pacific regions, which includes India, Singapore, Japan, China, Malaysia and Russia.
The major players involved in the chromatography market are Agilent Technologies (U.S.), Thermofisher scientific, Inc. (U.S.), Waters Corporation (U.S.), Pall Corporation (U.S.), GE healthcare (U.K), Tosoh Corporation (Japan), W. R. Grace & Co (U.S.), Phenomenex, Inc. (U.S.), Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. (U.S.).
