Automating equipment is necessary to tackle skilled labor shortage and create growth opportunities, finds Frost & Sullivan's Test & Measurement team
SINGAPORE, July 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Southeast Asia (SEA) and Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) chromatography market is witnessing steady growth. Overall market growth is driven by the growing industrial sectors in Southeast Asia and ANZ, and a need to adhere to quality assurance, process control, and regulatory standards. While Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and Indonesia are key hot spots contributing to high growth rates in the region, foreign direct investment inflows to countries such as the Philippines and Vietnam are encouraging regional development.
"High cost of ownership, maintenance costs, and the need for quicker analysis are causing end users to shift toward better technologies such as process chromatographs," said Test & Measurement Research Analyst Sneha Ayyar.
"Vendors that focus on project execution, equipment support and value-added services as part of their offering will gain a competitive edge," she added.
