The global chromatography reagents market is categorized into three broad segments, namely, by type, by technique, and by end user. The chromatography reagents market by type is broadly categorized intosilylation reagents, alkylation reagents, acylation reagents, ion-pairing reagents, solvents, buffers, and solid support for analytical applications.
Chromatography reagents market by type for bioprocess/preparative applications is broadly categorized into solvents, buffers, and solid support. The chromatography reagents market by technique is categorized into column and planar chromatography reagents based on bed shape; gas, liquid, and supercritical phase chromatography reagents based on physical state of mobile phase; and adsorption, partition, ion-exchange, size exclusion, and affinity chromatography reagents based on separation mechanism.
End users of the chromatography reagents are pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical & biotechnology industries, academics/government/research, food and beverage industries, hospitals/clinics, cosmetics industries, environmental agencies, nutraceutical companies, and others.
North America is the largest chromatography reagents market. The large size of the North American chromatography reagents market can be attributed to augmented research activities for the development of drugs and biologics, increasing number of conferences, and growth in government investments.
Increasing conferences on chromatography in Singapore and Malaysia; expansion of chromatography companies in China, India, Singapore, Vietnam, and Japan; prominent pharmaceutical companies outsourcing their drug discovery and development services to Asian (especially in China and India) are the factors that are fueling the demand for separation services and chromatography reagents in Asia.
