HPLC systems and accessories market to reach $3 billion by 2010

April 23, 2008 — /PRWEB/ — SAN JOSE, CA — Over the years, liquid chromatography has emerged as a workhorse technology in life sciences, pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, research and development, and industrial chemicals. Used alone or in combination with other high performance technologies, HPLC (high-performance liquid chromatography) is a versatile technique for efficient separation, quantification, and characterization of constituents of complex chemical mixtures. Present day HPLC devices are capable of analyzing almost all types of biological compounds, including small molecules that can be isolated or synthesized.

The United States and Europe comprise the major markets, collectively accounting for an estimated 70 percent share of the global HPLC systems and accessories market for 2008, as stated by Global Industry Analysts, Inc. Proliferation of new applications, especially in biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors, is one of the major factors driving growth. Other drivers include integration with complementary techniques, or the growing shift towards “hyphenated technologies,” and growing acceptance and addition of new dimensions to the technique.

The HPLC columns market in the United States represents the largest market, with sales estimated at $303 million for 2008. Despite relatively mature conditions and resultant slow pace of growth, the HPLC market in United States is benefiting from the introduction of fast LC technologies. Fast LC systems offer various advantages to research laboratories, which include superior resolution, high sensitivity, and enhanced throughput.

The Asia-Pacific region is projected to record the fastest growth, posting a CAGR of 7.5 percent over the period 2000 to 2015. The HPLC market in countries such as India is expected to witness rapid growth propelled by an increase in life sciences research activities. The HPLC pumps market in the region is projected to reach $79 million by 2010.

Germany is one of the leading producers and consumers of analytical instrumentation and laboratory equipment in Europe. HPLC is a popular technique employed by the bioanalytical, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries in Germany. The HPLC sample injectors market in Germany is estimated at $45 million for 2008.

Key players profiled in the report include Agilent Life Sciences and Chemical Analysis Group, Dionex Corp., ESA Biosciences Inc., Hitachi High Technologies America, Jasco Corp., Knauer Scientific Instruments, Merck KgaA, Shimadzu Corp., Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc, Varian Inc., Waters Corp., and ZirChrom Separations Inc.

The report titled “HPLC Systems & Accessories: A Global Strategic Business Report,” published by Global Industry Analysts, Inc., analyzes the market over the period 2000 to 2015. Analysis is presented for the United States, Canada, Japan, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America.
