Chromatography is a versatile method of separating and analyzing the components or solutes within complex chemical mixtures. In this report, the chromatography market is grouped into nine technology segments consisting of:
- Analytical HPLC
- Preparative HPLC
- Clinical HPLC (HbA1c)
- Gas Chromatography
- Low Pressure Liquid Chromatography
- Ion Chromatography
- Flash Chromatography
- Thin Layer Chromatography
- Supercritical Fluid Chromatography
The chromatography market is projected to grow at a rate of 4.9% during the next five years.
Analytical HPLC dominates the market, commanding half of the total demand for systems, as technological advancements expand its application across many industries, especially in pharmaceuticals and recent applications in cannabinoids testing.
Gas chromatography is the second-largest product segment, with growth in this technology will be moderate due to market saturation, especially in developed countries. However, the rebound of the chemical industry, along with increasing environmental testing demand in developing regions, buoys revenues for GC.
Preparative HPLC is another mature market, with innovation coming primarily in the form of automation and high-throughput production. This technique is applied heavily in the pharma/bio sector, which is growing rapidly due to high R&D investment for drug discovery.
