DUBLIN, Sept. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Chiral Chromatography Column (Empty, Pre-packed, Analytical, Preparative) Market - Forecast to 2018" report to their offering.
Over the years, the chiral chromatography columns market has witnessed various technological advancements that have led to an increase in the application areas of chiral chromatography columns. For instance, chiral chromatography columns are widely used in academic research laboratories and a number of industries, including pharmaceutical, biotechnology and biopharmaceutical, food and agriculture, environmental testing, and others.
Among applications, the liquid chromatography system is the fastest-growing segment of the chiral chromatography columns market. Chiral chromatography columns are widely used in liquid chromatography systems. The rapid growth of this market is attributed to factors such as the wide use of HPLC systems. HPLC systems are used extensively in production-level processes in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and food and environmental industry, as well as for research activities in proteomics, metabolomics, and genomics. However, UHPLC systems are replacing HPLC systems, as they provide faster analysis and better resolutions. HPLC and UHPLC systems are extensively used in drug development, drug approval, and quality control of drugs, APIs, and excipients.
In the coming years, growth of the chiral chromatography columns market is likely to be centered in China, India, Japan, Brazil, and Mexico. These countries offer an array of opportunities for growth and are likely to serve as revenue pockets for the chromatography instrumentation market. All these countries offer high growth potential as compared to mature markets such as the U.S. and Canada. Growth in these markets is spurred by the growing number of pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical research industries in China, India, Japan, Brazil, and Mexico. Due to this, chiral chromatography columns companies are venturing into these regions.
In addition, regulatory policies in the Asia-Pacific region are more adaptive and business-friendly, due to the comparatively less-stringent regulations. This has led to an increase in R&D activities in this region. The region is a hub for clinical trials and has witnessed a high growth in the Clinical Research Organizations (CRO) industry in China, India, Korea, and Taiwan. According to ClinicalTrials.gov, in June 2013, out of the total 11,496 clinical trials in the world, 3,588 are being conducted in Asia-Pacific. This region, along with the Middle East and Africa, is conducting 38% of all clinical trials. Thus, growth in R&D activities and the CRO industry is propelling the demand for chiral chromatography columns.
The chiral chromatography columns market is highly competitive. Players operating in the market strive to gain market visibility and larger market shares. Companies focus on launching product launches and entering agreements to increase their customer base. However, the high cost of the systems and the need for skilled professionals to operate the highly sophisticated chromatography instruments are limiting the use of advanced chiral chromatography columns.
This report extensively covers chiral chromatography columns used by the pharmaceutical and life science industries. Volume analysis of the market has not been provided due to wide variations in prices of products, which vary with different indications.
