Chromatography is a commonly used technique in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries among various other industrial areas, in the process of analyzing, separating, and purifying biomolecules.
Chromatography instruments are used in these processes where biocomponents are to be separated, and ultimately distributed in two phases - stationary (solid or liquid supported on solid) and mobile (liquid or gas).
The global market for chromatography instrumentation is mainly driven by the increasing need for these systems in research laboratories across a wide range of end user entities.
Growing demand for chromatography instrumentation across food & beverage, diagnostics, pharma, drug discovery, genetic engineering, and water analysis, is expected to propel the growth of the market in the coming years
Immense Potential for Growth in the BioTech and Pharma Industries to Drive the Market
The global pharmaceuticals industry is witnessing incremental growth, especially since the outbreak of the novel coronavirus. Governing bodies around the world are bolstering their investments in the biotechnology industry in order to encourage research & development activities for new drug discovery.
This is expected to give rise to the implementation of pharmaceutical reagents in research & development activities, which is one of the primary drivers of the global market for chromatography instrumentation.
Leading players in the market are collaborating to boost advancements in the design and development of reagents and analytical resins through chromatography instrumentation, and this is expected to emerge as a popular trend in this landscape.
Thereby, increasing investments in private public partnerships in the biotechnology and pharmaceuticals industries for the development of pharma reagents and resins will continue to propel the growth of the chromatography instrumentation market.
Sustainability to be the New Trend; Skilled Operators will remain Inevitable
The chromatography instrumentation market is rapidly moving towards innovative methods of minimizing the impact of chemical synthesis on the environment and the overall ecosystem.
This is giving rise to the trend of green chromatography, and consequently, the usage of nanomaterials across the chromatography instrumentation market is expected to increase.
Leading players are investing heavily in research & development to discover chromatography methods that can reduce the production of pollutant waste during any chromatographic analysis is carried out.
The implementation of chromatography instruments is increasing in the process of monoclonal antibody purification, and this is triggering new growth opportunities for stakeholders in the chromatography instrumentation market.
However, such advancements in the landscape are triggering the need for highly trained personnel to operate the new chromatography instruments in order to ensure their efficient use.
In addition, while the need for skilled operators continues to impact the adoption of next-generation chromatography instruments, high cost of these new systems coupled with economic slowdown may contribute as the hindrance for the market growth.
