Global Gas Chromatography Market 2016-2020

About the Gas Chromatograph Market

Chromatography refers to a set of laboratory techniques used for separation of mixtures. It involves two stages: a mobile phase and a stationary phase. A mixture is dissolved in a fluid in the mobile phase (carrier gas) that carries it through a structure that holds another material (stationery phase), which is a microscopic layer of polymer or a liquid on a solid support. The separation of the mixture is caused by different speeds with which the constituents of the mixture travel. The separation is done on the basis of differential partitioning between mobile and stationery phases. Subtle differences in the partition coefficient of a compound lead to differential retention on the stationary phase, thereby changing the separation.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global gas chromatograph market to grow at a CAGR of 5.13% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Gas Chromatograph Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global gas chromatograph market: Agilent Technologies, DANI Instruments, PerkinElmer, Phenomenex, Restek, Shimadzu, Sigma-Aldrich, Thermo Fisher Scientific, and WR Grace and Company.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s 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.

Further, the report states that one challenge that could hinder market growth is the failure to forecast the demand for gas chromatographs. The sale of gas chromatographs is demand-oriented and largely dependent on end-users. Vendors may not always be able to purchase sufficient supplies or components to meet the increasing product demand, which could adversely affect their sales.
