UHPLC (Ultra High Pressure Liquid Chromatography), Food and Beverages industries Autosampler Accessories and Consumables, and Emerging Economies in Asia
Autosampler accessories and consumables comprise vials, autosampler syringes/sample needles, septa, and others. As there is a need for frequent replacement of autosampler accessories and consumables for accurate results, this segment of the chromatography accessories and consumables market represent a new revenue pocket.
Across the globe, the adoption of technologically advanced chromatographic techniques is increasing, due to their ability to provide more detailed and accurate results in a shorter duration of time. A number of advanced chromatographic techniques are available in the market. Moreover, players in this market are engaged in developing new accessories and consumables with advanced features, for chromatographic techniques. This is expected to help the market grow further.
The LC (Liquid Chromatography) accessories and consumables market showcases a lucrative growth potential; this market includes high pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC), ultra high pressure liquid chromatography (UHPLC), low pressure liquid chromatography (LPLC), flash chromatography, and others. Among these segments, high pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC) represents the new revenue pocket for this market. Taking into consideration the growing demand of this technique in the drug development process, major players are investing in the development of innovative accessories and consumables for UHPLC. For instance, in January 2013, Phenomenex, Inc. introduced new 1.3-micron UHPLC columns for its Kinetex core-shell product line. Also, in October 2011, Agilent launched ZORBAX Rapid Resolution High Definition 300SB-C8 1.8 ým columns for ultra high performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC).
The application of chromatography in the food industry is mainly in the areas of quality control, tests for additives, contaminants, toxins, and residues. Furthermore, ion chromatography is used for the determination of sugar and salt content in food. Stringent government regulations with regard to food quality also help in boosting the use of chromatography techniques in the agriculture/food sector. This in turn is resulting in the increasing use of chromatography accessories and consumables. The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), signed into law in the U.S. on January 2011, has expanded the food safety and protection measures globally. Advances in the integration of chromatographic separation techniques with mass spectrometry have introduced a high level of sensitivity and selectivity into food testing. Gas chromatography (GC), gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS), liquid chromatography (LC), and liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS) are the most common techniques used in food testing. Accessories and consumables like supplies and replacement parts for the maintenance of these systems are likely to fuel the use of chromatography accessories and consumables in the food and beverages industry.
The Asia-Pacific region represents one of the most promising chromatography accessories and consumables markets in the world. Growth in this region is mainly attributed to the fact that big pharmaceutical companies are outsourcing their drug discovery and development studies to countries within this region. This has led to an increase in demand for separation procedures. Moreover, an increasing number of novel chromatography accessories and consumables are also being launched by companies in the Asia-Pacific region. Emerging economies such as, China, India, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Japan will be the focal points for growth of the chromatography accessories and consumables market in Asia-Pacific. The major players in the chromatography accessories and consumables market are strategically expanding their presence in these countries. Developing countries such as India and China are expected to witness the highest market growth for chromatography accessories and consumables in next five years.
