The World Market for Liquid Chromatography in Healthcare: Forecasts to 2020

The World Market for Liquid Chromatography in Healthcare

The World Market for Liquid Chromatography in Healthcare, provides useful business planning information and competitive analysis for this particular industry, including Market Size, Forecast, Research and Clinical Markets, Market Share, Analyst Commentary and Corporate Profiles.   The report divides the market between two segments of clinical diagnostics and academic and clinical research, so that customers can use the part of the report most applicable to their business.  

This is slow-evolving industry but recently, new technologies and applications are providing change in the market. The report covers these trends in detail.

Liquid chromatography (LC) has been one of the most important technologies used in laboratories for many years. Ranking behind pH measurement and balances, it is the third most used analytical technique. LC is used primarily to separate mixtures, identify their components, and/ or quantify their components. In a smaller fraction of applications, purification is the main goal.

For purification, it is competing with a number of other manufacturing technologies including crystallization, distillation, fractionation, gas absorption, membranes, and solvent extraction.

In contrast to purification applications, analytical LC techniques have fewer competing technologies; there are not as many ways available to separate a complex mixture non-destructively. There is a huge range of industries where LC is used to analyze samples. The applications are spread between life sciences and physical sciences, and research.

This report covers healthcare applications of liquid chromatography systems, hardware, software, consumables, and related services, with a focus on HPLC. Both analytical and purification applications are included, but the emphasis leans towards analytical techniques due to their higher share of the market. While smaller segments such as flash chromatography and thin layer chromatography were not specifically excluded from the estimates, their sales are much lower and they are not discussed in the report. Although ion chromatography has similarities with HPLC, the products and applications are also distinct, and these are not covered in the report.

There is a large variety of companies involved in the LC in healthcare market. These include suppliers of systems, detectors, pumps, auto-samplers, parts, columns, and various consumables designed for LC. The largest fraction of companies manufactures columns, while much fewer produce entire LC systems. There are also a range of chemicals and other supplies that are used, which are all not unique to the LC market. The report profiles these companies.
