HPLC Systems & Accessories: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (Vocus) October 8, 2010
High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) is the largest product segment in the analytical instruments industry. The versatile and popular technology helps identify and analyze constituent components of various chemicals and materials and therefore is used to analyze substances in a wide variety of industries for R&D purposes, quality control, and process engineering applications. Currently pharmaceutical and life science industries are the biggest application areas for HPLC testing. HPLC market is expected to be driven by new applications such as food safety testing as it is ideally suited for testing of food contaminants owing to its large volume of data generation through a single analysis, thereby facilitating screening, confirmation, and quantification of all the constituents. Proliferation of new applications especially in biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors represents another major factor driving growth.
Present day HPLC devices are capable of analyzing almost all types of biological compounds including small molecules that can be isolated or synthesized. HPLC is also being used in the purification of peptide therapeutics, as well as certain proteins. Continued improvement in the system automation and in robotics is also one of the major factors propelling growth in the HPLC market. Emerging hyphenated methods such as GC/LC-MS and LC/HPLC-NMR represent a shift towards multidimensional hyphenated systems for highly advanced research and quality monitoring applications.
The US and Europe together account for a lion’s share the global HPLC market, as stated by the new market research report on HPLC Systems & Accessories. Within the HPLC equipment market, HPLC Columns represents the largest segment accounting for about one-third of the revenues. Growth in the segment is driven by improvements designed for effective separation and analysis. Asia-Pacific (excluding Japan) is expected to be the most dynamic market for analytical instruments with China and India driving growth. 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 growing due to step up of drug discovery and production of generic pharmaceutical products by the pharmaceutical industry in the region. Moreover, rapid industrialization is driving the growth of analytical instruments market including HPLC devices in the region. HPLC Pumps market in Asia-Pacific is forecast to cross US$100 million mark in 2013.
The HPLC industry consists of limited large companies and small players with highly specific product lines. Key players profiled in the report include Agilent Technologies, Dionex Corp., Grace, Gilson, Inc., Hichrome Ltd., Hitachi High Technologies America, Imtakt, Jasco Corporation, Knauer Scientific Instruments, Shimadzu Corp., PerkinElmer, Inc., Sigma-Aldrich Corporation, Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc, and Waters Corporation, and ZirChrom Separations Inc.
