Chromatography Reagents Market

Chromatography is a method of separation used in the flowing fluid stream by chromatographic reagents to isolate elements and solutes. Chromatography has a myriad of applications in biological and chemical sectors. The technique is usually used for the removal and identification of chemical compounds in biochemical testing.

The food and beverage sector dominated the chromatography reagents market in 2018 and is projected to continue its trend over the forecast period, which is supposed to be influenced by sustained growth and innovation of food and beverage products and growing population noticeably contributing to food demand. During the forecast period, the increasing popularity of green chromatography and the expanding use of chromatography techniques in proteomics, genomics, and metabolomics medications are expected to yield new avenues for further expansion of chromatography reagents market. In the food and beverage sector, chromatographic reagents are widely used to efficiently purify crystalline sugar and liquid sugar syrup. These reagents extract salt ions from raw alternatives and adsorb yellow-brown materials that offer raw sugar its natural color. Ion exchange chromatography reagents can also simply and efficiently remove unwanted ionic compounds, such as hardening elements or table salt, from gelatin, pectin, etc. Combinations of heavily acidic, gelled and weakly-basic chromatographic reagents are usually used. In many countries around the globe, chromatographic reagents are approved for processing food and drinking water.

Chromatography Reagents Market

Chromatography Reagents Market

The worldwide chromatography reagents market share was dominated by the North American region in 2018. The enhanced use of chromatography techniques, primarily in the food and beverage and pharmaceutical industries, fuels the region's requirement for chromatographic reagents. With the surge in the region's aging population and the increasing amount of critical illnesses, healthcare spending in the region has risen considerably. This enhanced R&D expenditure for medicinal exploration and development in the pharmaceutical sector, which further strengthened the region’s appetite for chromatography technology and reagents? The Asia Pacific & European markets are showing steady growth in the chromatography reagents market due to increasing population & improving medical facilities.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

    • Increasing demand in the food & beverage industry across the industry
    • Increasing demand due to increasing global senescent population
    • Increasing demand in the medical & pharmaceutical sectors

Chromatography Reagents - Key Developments:

    1. In 2012, Thermo Fischer Technologies introduced to the market a new reagent. Thermo Fisher adds that it is designed for use with the existing ultrapure Optima LC/MS solvent range and is made of ammonium formate, ammonium acetate, and acetic acid. Volatile salts, ammonium acetate, and ammonium formate are utilized in LC/MS applications to improve ionization under neutral conditions in ESI-MS, while acetic acid enhances chromatography separation under acidic conditions.
    2. In 2015, Merck completed Sigma-Aldrich acquisition, a leading science, and technology company, especially in chromatography reagents sectors.
    3. In 2019, an expert in the production of solvents for chromatography, CARLO ERBA Reagents extended its range of solvents for GC in order to satisfy the ever-increasing requirements in terms of equipment and detection methods, particularly for impurities which, by interaction, can affect the result's reliability.
