Lens On The Scientific Market
Key findings from our industry experts.
Water is essential to all life on earth, and no less so for human health, inasmuch as the majority of the human body is made up of water. But above all, water is the major component of the earth’s ecosystem, as more than two-thirds of the planet’s surface is covered by it. Hence, every government […]
SDi has long since monitored the global analytical instrument market, publishing market segmentations and shares on the numerous technologies covered in the Global Assessment Report.

The medical field is evolving as treatment models shift away from the traditional “one size fits all” approach, which treats the “average” patient. Precision medicine, also called personalized medicine, is gradually becoming the new model for medical diagnosis and treatment. Under this model, treatments are tailored to the individual characteristics of each patient and their […]
Electron microscopy has long been a staple microscopy technology, especially for characterization in the semiconductor industry as well as for other materials. However, new technological innovations combined with emerging industries have opened the door to new applications where electron microscopy is likely to be of significant demand for the long-term. According to SDi’s recent The […]
Single-use chromatography is a relatively new separation technology that hails from the bioprocessing industry. Single-use products, such as disposable filter capsules and single-use bioreactors, were initially applied to the upstream sector of bioprocessing to reduce cleaning time and minimize contamination. As the downstream sector also requires a sterile separation process, single-use applications also expanded towards […]
While China and Japan are the darlings of Asia Pacific, the rest of the region poses a promising growth opportunity. Korea and Singapore are already players on the world stage, but Southeast Asia with its rapid growth is just starting to flex its economic muscles. SDi took a look at this regional market in its […]
The demand for pharmaceuticals grows higher each year, as the global population ages and diseases once associated with so-called developed regions, become more prominent in other areas. As medical knowledge elucidates the underlying causes and mechanisms of various diseases in fine detail, approaches to disease treatment are shifting. With the rise of precision medicine, medical […]
Within the analytical instrumentation industry, mass spectrometry is certainly one of the most dynamic areas for growth over the next several years. Its increasingly sensitive analytical capabilities and enhancements continue to bring the technology to the edge of new scientific discovery and research applications. While SDi covers the market for eight separate mass spec techniques […]
The National Bureau of Statistics of China released its preliminary data on the second quarter of 2019. GDP growth was estimated at 6.2%, which marks the lowest quarterly growth for the country since 1992. China has been one of the best sources of growth for analytical instrumentation for decades, so the question arises: Is this a […]
Sulfur compound (SOx) discharge is one of the most regulated pollutants in every industry, as studies have shown that it is harmful both for humans and the environment. A study on health impacts associated with the delay of MARPOL global sulfur standards conducted by the Finnish Meteorological Institute in 2016 estimated that if the marine […]
