Chiral Chromatography Columns Market – Prominent Players of Market - Agilent Technologies (U.S.), Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. (U.S.), Waters Corporation(U.S.), Phenomenex, Inc. (U.S.), Shimadzu Corporation (Japan), Daicel Corporation (Japan), and Sigma-Aldrich Corporation (U.S.).
The Chiral Chromatography Columns market has witnessed various technological advancements in recent years. This can be attributed to market players focusing on the introduction of newer systems and consumables for expediting chromatographic procedures. These new systems are widely being used in new application areas such as proteomics, genomics, and metabolomics. Through the launch of new products, a number of key players are competing against each other in order to increase their market shares and expand customer base, including Agilent Technologies (U.S.), Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. (U.S.), Waters Corporation (U.S.), Phenomenex, Inc. (U.S.), Shimadzu Corporation (Japan), Daicel Corporation (Japan), and Sigma-Aldrich Corporation (U.S.).
Different methods of separation and accurate quantification of chiral compounds form an important component of drug research and drug purity determination. Agilent Technologies serves this need through various chiral products like ULTRON ES-OVM column. Agilent also focused on reducing separation time by introducing Ultron ES columns that enable racemic separation without derivatization. Other such chiral products from Agilent include HP-Chiral ß capillary GC column, CP-Cyclodextrin-β-2,3,6-M-19, Cyclodex-B, and CycloSil-B. Moreover, during 2010 to 2013, the company launched as many as 42 chromatography instruments, which enabled the company to maintain its market leadership. It also includes special application columns in chiral chromatography, such as chiradex.
Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. is capable of providing stiff competition to Agilent. It focuses on fast racemic separation with chiral columns, instead of being strictly tied to basic HPLC/UHPLC technologies. It launched a new range of chiral columns named Restek Chiral Column Kits. Thermo Fisher Scientific maintains its market position by introducing a wide variety of chiral products, namely Restek Rt-BDEXsm Chiral Capillary Columns, Grace Astec Cyclobond Chiral HPLC Columns, and Restek Rt-BDEXsa Chiral Capillary Columns.
Some prominent strategic moves undertaken by leading players in the chiral chromatography columns market include agreements and collaborations, and geographic expansions. Players entered into agreements and collaborations with academic research institutes to support research studies by supplying chromatography instruments. For instance, in May 2013, Agilent signed an alliance with the College of Chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley (U.S.), to redesign and rebuild its chemistry and chemical engineering laboratories. The laboratory will be equipped with a comprehensive collection of Agilent’s latest high-performance chromatography and molecular spectroscopy instruments and software.
Players in this market expanded their facilities to increase their customer base, particularly in Asia—China, India, and Vietnam. For instance, in May 2013, Agilent opened two new offices located at Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, in Vietnam. The offices will provide sales, applications, and support services to company customers in Vietnam. The office at Ho Chi Minh City is a Demo Center, equipped with bioanalytical instruments used by scientists and researchers. These expansions in new geographic regions resulted in increased sales and competitive advantage.
