Chromatography Reagents Market: Growth Drivers

Growing uses of chromatographic reagents in cancer drug development to drive the market growth

Therapeutic medication monitoring and drug dose adjustment are effective in the treatment of many cancers. A study published in Therapeutic Drug Monitoring in 2020, for instance, aimed to validate a high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) approach for routine serum Lenvatinib detection in patients with thyroid cancer. Researchers are developing a large variety of approaches based on diverse chromatographic techniques, which is increasing the demand for chromatography reagents.

Similarly, a clinical study published in Biomedical Chromatography in 2020 evaluated various bioanalytical methodologies used in cancer therapy for immuno-oncology medicines. According to this survey, the most widely utilized methods were HPLC and Liquid Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS). The increased usage of chromatography-based techniques for quantitative analysis of cancer medications is likely to drive the growth of the global chromatography reagents market. Furthermore, an increasing number of cancer patients is likely to fuel this expansion. According to the National Cancer Institute, there will be 1,806,590 new cancer cases in the United States in 2020, with an estimated 16.9 million cancer survivors.

Chromatography Reagents Market: Restraints

Shortage of supplies and reagents

The carrier gas for gas chromatography is usually helium. Deep-sea diving, airbags, cryogenics, rocket fuel, and MRI machines are just a few of their uses. It is the industry standard for gas chromatography since it is secure, inert, and offers the best run times. The global helium shortage, which began in 2019, may limit the market's expansion for chromatography reagents. As a result, many experts in gas chromatography are converting to hydrogen gas and using a hydrogen generator as their source of carrier gas.

Chromatography Reagents Market: Opportunities

Increasing the application of chromatography to provide lucrative opportunities for the market expansion

One of the most popular separation methods across numerous sectors is chromatography. The opportunities presented by various government bodies for environmental testing and petrochemical analysis can be used to the advantage of suppliers and producers of chromatography reagents. Manufacturers might enter into long-term agreements with academic and research institutions to ensure consistent revenue generation. Additionally, the creation of scarce supplies presents an opportunity for researchers. The market for chromatography reagents is becoming more profitable as a result of the use of chromatography in the development and purification of pharmaceuticals.

Chromatography Reagents Market: Challenges

Lack of skilled professionals  

The correct application of analytical methods like chromatography, PCR, and NGS requires professionals with the relevant knowledge and skills. The demand for qualified people with the ability to operate chromatography equipment is rising as a result of various technological advancements in the market for chromatography reagents. For instance, irregular column packing can lead to low yields and purity levels, which would affect the end product's quality. Additionally, choosing the appropriate chromatography method is quite important for the purifying procedure. A lack of understanding regarding the best technique to use results in several direct & indirect costs and lengthens the time it takes for pharmaceuticals to reach the market.

Chromatography Reagents Market: Segmentation

The global chromatography reagents market is segmented based on type, separation mechanism, application, end user, and region

Based on the type, the global market is bifurcated into solvents, buffers, derivatization reagents, ion-pair reagents, and others. The solvents segment is expected to dominate the market over the forecast period. A chromatographic analytical method called solvent chromatography (SC) is used to separate ions or molecules that have been dissolved in a solvent. The sample's interactions with the mobile and stationary phases give rise to this differentiation. Liquid chromatography separation is based on the analyte's preference for stationary and mobile phases. Silica is one of the most used adsorbent substances used in solvent chromatography. The components must be dissolved to the concentration necessary for detection for the mobile process to work. The choice of mobile step can significantly affect both the separation retention time and the subsequent ionization of the components for detection.

Based on application, the global chromatography reagents are categorized into pharmaceutical testing, biopharma-biotech applications, cosmeceutical applications, environmental testing, food & beverage testing, petrochemical analysis, forensic testing, clinical testing, and research & academic applications. Pharmaceutical testing is anticipated to hold the largest market share over the forecast period. All pharmaceutical products must be of the highest quality to guarantee the patients are at the lowest possible risk.

During the development process, researchers, manufacturers, and developers utilize several technical tools and analytical techniques, such as liquid chromatography, to make sure that the products fit the requirements. The pharmaceutical industry is one of the most highly regulated in the world since medicinal products must be both safe and effective. The most significant analytical method used in the pharmaceutical business for identifying and quantifying drugs is HPLC chromatography. Chromatography is employed in the pharmaceutical industry for a range of functions, including identification and analysis.

This is used in the formulations as well as the active pharmaceutical ingredient throughout the research, development, and manufacture of medicines. As a result, the need for chromatography reagents is anticipated to increase in the upcoming years with the growth of the pharmaceutical industry.

Recent Developments:

  • In May 2022, Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, is providing laboratories performing food safety analysis with a new ion chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (IC-MS/MS) workflow solution for regulatory compliant, cost-effective, and reliable analysis of quaternary ammonium pesticides (Quats). The new Thermo Scientific Dionex IonPac CS21-Fast-4µm ion exchange column enables scientists to easily and accurately determine and quantify the four cationic pesticides: diquat, paraquat, mepiquat, and chlormequat. These highly polar, permanently charged chemicals are notoriously challenging to analyze, and have, until now, required complex workflows that are prone to quantitation errors. To meet regulatory requirements across Europe, Asia, and the Americas, and promote consumer safety, it is paramount for food safety laboratories to reliably determine the residue levels of these pesticides in or on food products.
  • In June 2022, Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc., a global leader in life science research and clinical diagnostic products, announced the launch of EconoFit Low-Pressure Prepacked Chromatography Column Packs to support resin screening experiments in the development of protein purification workflows.
