Liquid chromatography, the largest segment of the chromatography reagents market, should account for $2.4 billion in 2012 and $7.1 billion in 2017, a CAGR of 24%.
The global sales from solvents used in liquid chromatography are expected to reach $1.2 billion in 2012 and nearly $3.4 billion in 2017, a CAGR of 23%.
Global revenues from chromatography reagents totalled nearly $4.3 billion in 2011 and $5.2 billion in 2012. Total revenues should reach $11.9 billion in 2017 after increasing at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18%.
Reasons for Doing this Study
Chromatography techniques and reagents are being used extensively in pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries in the development of pure drug compounds. The primary usage of chromatography techniques is for quality assurance of drug products wherein chromatography separation techniques can, in some cases, assure up to 99.9% purity level and can reveal the impurities to 0.1% or even smaller. These separations or analysis techniques use chromatography reagents for the measurement of the drug purity, which has led to the growing market of the reagents. The study thus focuses on the usage of these reagents in various industries across the global markets.
Most of the techniques of chromatography and their reagents are discussed in this report. The fast-changing scenarios and developmental landscape of various technologies in the market justify focusing on this segment. Along with the end users -- pharmaceutical and biotech, food and beverage, environmental agencies and other industries -- merger and acquisition and collaborations of companies are also covered in this report. This study also discusses the strengths and weaknesses of each reagent type/technology in light of new technologies, growing competition and changing customer needs.
