Chromatography Market: Steady Growth Ahead

Chromatography sales reached nearly $8.5 billion in 2016, having rebounded from weak growth due to currency effects in the previous year. In 2017, moderate sales increases are expected to continue. We project this market segment will be fueled by the rise of clinical chromatography, as well as increased regulations in the pharmaceutical and food industries, particularly in Asia.  Analytical HPLC is the largest segment within the chromatography market. Much of the growth here is forecast to come from UHPLC, which in turn is driven by protein-related research applications and QC functions in the pharmaceutical industry. We project that growth in the Gas Chromatography (GC) segment will be weak, but aftermarket sales are expected to provide a boost. Other areas covered in the IBO Annual Review & Forecast issue include projections for ion chromatography, preparative HPLC, low-pressure LC, flash chromatography, thin layer chromatography (TLC) and supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC). Chr0momatography is just one of the ten categories covered in IBO Annual Review & Forecast issue. Please visit our catalog to learn more about the IBO Annual Review & Forecast Issue.
