The report forecasts the global gas chromatograph market to grow at a CAGR of 5.13% during the period 2016-2020.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: An emerging trend which is expected to boost market growth is the increased adoption of GC-MS. GC-MS is an analytical method wherein the features of gas-chromatography and mass spectrometry are combined to identify different substances within a test sample. Drug detection, fire investigation, explosives investigation, environmental analysis, and identification of unknown samples are some of the applications of GC-MS. GC-MS is also used in airport security to detect substances in luggage or people, who are going to travel. It also has the capability to identify trace elements in materials, which are expected to have disintegrated beyond identification.
According to the report, a key growth driver is the increased adoption of gas chromatographs in drug testing. Drug testing plays an important role in employment, especially in jobs related to federal transportation, airline industries, railways, and other workplaces, where public safety is a priority. At the workplaces in the US, drug testing is common for employers to reduce the impact of drug abuse and lower productivity.
