HPLC Systems and Accessories: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) November 14, 2011
Follow us on LinkedIn – HPLC is the largest product segment in the analytical instruments industry. A recognized industry standard, the popular technique, helps identify and analyze constituent components of various chemicals and materials. Unique performance capabilities of HPLC enable separation and identification of 80% of all known chemicals and materials. As a result, the method is used to analyze substances in a wide variety of industries for R&D purposes, quality control, and process engineering applications. Pharmaceutical and life science industries are the largest application areas that employ HPLC to identify new drugs and in pharmacokinetic studies.
The HPLC market is quite mature and growth is likely to arise from replacement sector, technology refinement and improvements. These include device automation, software improvement and high speed and accuracy in analysis with the advent of LC\MS systems. Present day HPLC devices are capable of analyzing almost all types of biological compounds including small molecules that can be isolated or synthesized. Other developments in the pipeline are the design of devices capable of analyzing small sample volume with high accuracy and devices capable of pumping solvent mixture at a slower rate onto the HPLC columns. A major end-use market for HPLC devices is the pharmaceutical and biotech industry followed by food products industry and chemical industry. Of late, HPLC systems are also used in various other industries, including petrochemicals, pesticides, cosmetics, power generation, and environmental testing.
As stated by the new market research report on HPLC Systems and Accessories, Europe continues to remain the largest regional market. High demand for scientific laboratory equipment including medical analysis devices and equipment, on-line production and quality control equipment, and environmental safety equipment, are the key factors driving growth in the European analytical instruments industry. Further, stringent directives on environmental safety also boost growth. Sophisticated instruments as well as commonly used simple analysis equipment enjoy significant demand due to growing focus on biotech research. Increased emphasis on meeting hygiene standards is also a key factor fueling growth in related areas such as HPLC, which is used for identification and separation of food contaminants. Asia Pacific market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7% over the analysis period. Latin America is another potential market and offers good growth prospects as economic development and political stability improve. The HPLC market in these regions is mainly driven by rapid industrialization and stepping up of drug discovery and production of generic pharmaceutical products by pharmaceutical industry. In terms of segments analyzed, HPLC columns represents the largest and the fastest growing segment. Columns form a key element of the separation system and include the stationary phase. Growth in the segment is primarily driven by introduction of columns which are capable of providing high resolution and analysis speed.
