The global chromatography reagents market has been valued at USD 4.8 billion in 2016 and is expected to reach USD 6.8 billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 7.22% during the forecast period, 2016-2021.
Chromatography is a separation technique that is used to separate solutes, by using chromatographic reagents. This technique is used in biochemical processes for the separation of chemical compounds and the development of pure drug components. In the petroleum sector, this technique is used to analyze complex mixtures of hydrocarbons. They are also used in food and beverage industry, cosmetics and environmental testing, and also as a diagnostic tool in academic research and forensics.
The chromatography reagents market is driven by the growing food safety concerns and the increased use of this technique in pharmaceutical and biotech companies for various medicines and innovations. Governments have increased their support by funding the manufacture and development of novel drugs. The major restraint for the market is the high-cost associated with the technique and the design used.
Chromatography reagents are segmented by type into - buffers, solvents, ion pair reagents, silylation reagents, alkylation and esterification reagents, acylation reagents and solid support. They are also categorized by the bed shape, whether it is column, planar or thin layer. Regarding the physical state of mobile phase, the chromatography reagents are classified as gas chromatography reagents, liquid chromatography reagents, high-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC) reagents, ultra-high-pressure liquid chromatography (UHPLC) reagents, low-pressure liquid chromatography (LPLC) reagents and super-critical fluid chromatography (SFC) reagents. Based on the separation mechanism, they are segmented as partition, adsorption, ion exchange, affinity and size exclusion. Depending on the application, they are used in different sectors like pharmaceuticals & biotechnology, food & beverage, clinics & hospitals, cosmetic companies, environmental agencies, and academic & research institutes.
The market has been geographically segmented into North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, South America and the Rest of the World. North America accounts for the largest share of the chromatography reagents market due to extensive research on drugs and biologic is this region. It is followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific. The Asia-Pacific market is likely to grow in the next five years, especially in Japan, China and India, due to an increase in drug manufacturing facilities and growing economies in the region. In Europe, Germany, France and the UK have a major hold in this market.
