Chromatography Systems Market By System Type (Gas Chromatography Systems, Liquid Chromatography Systems, Others), By End User (Biotechnology And Pharmaceutical Industries, Hospitals, Research And Clinical Laboratories, Agriculture And Food Industries, Others) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

The chromatography systems market is expected to exhibit productive growth during the forecast period.

The global chromatography systems market is expanding rapidly, with a value of US$ 6.2 billion in 2017 and a projected value of US$ 11.4 billion by 2026. The growing demand for separation analysis in pharmaceuticals, environmental/water, biotechnology, food, and agriculture applications will boost the global growth of chromatography systems. The advancement of new technology in gas and liquid chromatography is significant. New product launches in the portable and transportable systems segment will drive the market in developed nations. Gas chromatography will lead the market in the systems-type segment due to its expanded applications and increased adoption in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. High-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC) will show a significant CAGR during the forecast period. Additionally, new technology assessments in ultra-high pressure liquid chromatography (UHPLC), column chromatography, and ion exchange chromatography will generate the maximum revenue share during the forecast period.

Moreover, the demand for portable systems is gaining prominence. Growing research and development activities, together with the rising need for chromatography systems and instruments for protein purification, will further spur revenue growth in the global market. Factors driving the overall growth in developed nations include the easy affordability of advanced systems, the demand for automated separation techniques, and new product launches, which fuel the demand for chromatography systems globally. However, high cost, a lack of skilled operators, a lack of awareness about automated systems, and affordability issues are a few factors restraining the overall growth of the chromatography systems market globally.

Market Synopsis

Liquid chromatography systems are expected to register higher growth by 2026.

Chromatography systems are categorized into gas and liquid chromatography systems and others such as ion-exchange chromatography, supercritical fluid chromatography, column chromatography, and thin-layer chromatography. New product launches in the U.S., Europe, and the Asia Pacific, along with enhanced applications in fully automated standalone chromatography systems and portable systems, will boost market growth during the forecast period. For instance, in September 2018, Showa Denko K.K. launched a novel category of Shodex high-performance liquid chromatography column (IC SI-36 4D) for ion chromatography to analyze anions, which is well compatible with hydroxide eluents. In April 2018, Waters Corporation launched the new Acquity UPLC Plus series, H-Class Plus Bio, UPLC H-Class Plus, and I-Class Plus systems with enhanced applications ranging from peptide mapping to routine product release testing. However, the high cost of advanced systems (the costs involved in the design and integration of automated structures) act as a restraint on the overall global market. Demand for portable and transportable chromatography systems in developing nations will grow significantly during the forecast period.

Increasing applications in biotechnology and pharmaceuticals witness a significant CAGR.

The chromatography systems and instrumentation techniques are primarily utilized in various application areas such as biotechnology, genetic engineering, pharmaceuticals, food production, diagnostics, environmental/water analysis, and drug discovery. New technology assessments in column chromatography and liquid chromatography in various applications (including analytical and purification) are driving the growth of the market. There is an increasing trend toward using ultra-HPLC (high-performance liquid chromatography) and nano-LC for LC-MS with minimized flow rates, which has shown promising outcomes globally. The rise in usage of multiparameter systems is evident due to their enhanced functionality, such as in purification methods, microscale bioprocessing, green bioprocessing, and others, therefore driving the market. Noteworthy developments in the biotech and food industries are that top organizations are going for the automated advanced chromatography systems market due to high-end applications and enhanced capabilities in gas absorption, crystallization, fractionation, distillation, membrane separation, and solvent extraction procedures.

Increasing demand, new product launches, and the presence of top players hold North America in a dominant position.

In 2017, North America generated the largest revenue share in the global chromatography systems market, attributed to new product launches along with mergers and acquisitions. For instance, in December 2017, Pall Corporation launched an automated single-use chromatography system for downstream processing named AllegroTM. In June 2017, PerkinElmer Inc. signed an exclusive agreement to acquire EUROIMMUN Medical Laboratory Diagnostics AG. Other major factors leading the market's growth include the demand for effective portable gas chromatography systems and instruments, increased applications in biotech and the food industry, and the integration of advanced data management and laboratory information systems. Rapid approval for new products increased funding for research and development in fluid chromatography, ion exchange, and column chromatography, and increased use of advanced systems in pharmaceutical, clinical, and forensic laboratories are major factors driving the overall growth of the market.

However, in low-income nations such as South Africa, China, India, Brazil, Mexico, and others, the availability of advanced systems and services is limited. The lack of a skilled workforce, the scarce availability of traditional separation tools and techniques, and the high cost of chromatography systems are restraining the development of the market.
