Chiral Chromatography Columns Market: Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018 - 2026


Chiral column chromatography is a type of column chromatography wherein the stationary phase comprises a single enantiomer of a chiral compound instead of being achiral. Chiral separation of racemic drugs has rising importance in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries in order to yield an optimal therapeutic effect. The increasing significance of chromatography tests for drug approvals and technological advances in chromatography columns are expected to majorly drive market growth during the forecast period. Furthermore, global pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, as well as government investments in biotechnology research and development, will contribute to market growth. Rising alliances between market participants and research laboratories and academic institutes, along with escalating demand for chiral chromatography columns in research activities in medicine, proteomics, genomics, and metabolomics, are also anticipated to foster the market growth in the near future.

The pre-packed columns segment is expected to dominate the market over the forecast period, attributed to the augmenting demand for analytical columns in industries and laboratories. On the basis of applications, the liquid chromatography segment will account for a significant market share from 2018 to 2016 due to widespread applications of high-performance liquid chromatography and ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography in chiral chromatography. Pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies will spearhead the market owing to a surge in the number of market players coupled with increasing investments in research and development.

North America will hold a major chunk of the market owing to its significant position in the pharmaceutical industry, increasing research activities in drug and biologic development, chromatography conferences, and government investments in the chromatography market. A surge in the number of partnerships or collaborations between market players and research laboratories and academic institutes, along with the outsourcing of drug discovery and development services in India, China, Japan, and Australia, is also anticipated to witness lucrative market growth in the Asia Pacific. The prominent market players are gaining competitive advantages through the implementation of new product launches, mergers and acquisitions, and partnership or collaboration strategies.
