A recent research by Fact.MR estimates the global gas chromatography market to exhibit an above-average expansion through the forecast period 2017 to 2022. The global market for gas chromatography is expected to exceed US$ 3,500 Mn in revenues by 2022-end.
There has been a significant surge in adoption of gas chromatography among industrial sectors such as oil & gas, agriculture, food & beverage, and healthcare. Gas chromatography is also being adopted in research organizations, academic institutes, clinical toxicology, and environmental agencies. Combination of gas chromatography and mass spectrometry (GC-MS), has found its application in fire investigation, identifying unknown samples, environmental analysis, investigation of explosives, and detection of drugs. On the back of these applications, gas chromatography will witness a substantial rise in demand in the upcoming years. Various governments are making investments for the development of advanced chromatography technologies. In addition, a number of collaborations have been witnessed between research laboratories, and academic institutes since the recent past. Gas chromatography tests have become highly imperative for drug approvals. The aforementioned factors will augment growth of the global gas chromatography market over the forecast period.
Higher growth potential for the market is being observed in emerging countries, because of their rising GDP, along with increasing healthcare spending driven by the large population base. One of the major trends discerned in the global gas chromatography market is growth in adoption of the micro gas chromatographs. A number of companies are shifting their focus to utilization of small instruments, in order to save huge investments and space. Several benefits are offered by micro gas chromatographs such as lower energy consumption, short delays in receiving results, lower sample gas quantity required, increased reliability in operation, and process accuracy & precision. However, instruments of gas chromatography involve huge initial capital investments, with shortage of skilled professions for their operation. These factors might hamper the market growth.
