Chromatography is an analytical technique, used for separation, identification and purification of the mixture of components, which involves distribution of each analyte between a moving fluid stream, namely the mobile phase (which can be either a liquid or a gas), and a stationary phase (which can be either a solid or a liquid). Chromatography finds several applications across different industries, including pharmaceutical, biotechnology, chemical, environmental, food, petrochemical, and other such industries. Specifically in pharmaceutical industry, recent years have witnessed a surge in the demand for chromatography systems / chromatography instrumentation (such as liquid chromatography system, gas chromatography system, gel permeation chromatography, supercritical fluid chromatography) and chromatography consumables (such as chromatography resin, packed columns) used for the qualitative and quantitative analysis of a wide range of complex samples in large-scale translational research studies, precision medicine, virus research and vaccines development. Further, the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic fueled the growth of the global market of chromatography instrumentation and chromatography consumables; this can be attributed to the adoption of chromatography in various drug development processes and diagnostics. Driven by the rising adoption of chromatography techniques in drug discovery and other application areas, the chromatography instrumentation and chromatography consumables market is anticipated to witness considerable market growth during the forecast period.

The chromatography instrumentation / systems landscape features close to 75 large, mid-sized and small companies, which claim to offer various types of chromatography systems, including continuous chromatography system, gas chromatography system, gel permeation chromatography system, ion chromatography system, liquid chromatography system, and supercritical fluid chromatography system, for the detection, separation and purification of various types of analytes. Nearly 70% of the companies offer liquid chromatography systems. It is worth highlighting that in March 2023, US based Waters Corporation introduced its next generation HPLC system, Alliance™ iS, for its users in the QC laboratories. The launch of next generation systems with improved efficiency is expected to be instrumental in driving the market growth during the forecast period. Further, it is interesting to note that close to 15 companies provide chromatography systems that are operational at all the scales of operation (preclinical, clinical and commercial).
Currently, more than 80 companies offer different types of chromatography consumables, including chromatography resin, chromatography columns and others, for a wide range of end users. These companies are providing chromatography consumables that can be used for separation, detection and purification of different types of small molecules, biologics (including amino acids, antibodies, cells, enzymes, oligonucleotides, peptides / proteins) and other analytes. Additionally, more than 40% of these chromatography consumables companies are located in North America. It is worth noting that Purolite, a US based chromatography resin manufacturer, has recently added two manufacturing facilities in Pennsylvania, US. One of the two facilities was opened in December 2022 for the production of ion exchange resins. The latest addition to their manufacturing network is their sixth facility at Landenberg, Pennsylvania. The facility is under construction and will be manufacturing agarose chromatography resin. Such expansions are driven by the increased demand from the end users and will continue to drive the market growth for chromatography consumables during the forecast period.
In the last decade, chromatography instrumentation and consumables market has witnessed a substantial number of acquisitions and mergers in order to enhance their capabilities and product portfolio to meet the growing demand for chromatography instrumentation and chromatography consumables. It is interesting to note that the number of such deals increased by 37% in 2022, when compared to the deals inked in 2021. In fact, the year 2022 witnessed acquisitions of 10 chromatography instrumentation and / or chromatography consumables companies or their major assets; these include (in alphabetical order) Applied Research, Chromatography Research Supplies, ModuVision, Novasep, Pepsep, Prolab Instruments, PSS-Polymer Standards Service, Purilogics, Sepiatech, and Virtual Control. It is interesting to highlight that Bruker acquired two companies in 2022 namely (in alphabetical order) Pepsep and Prolab Instruments.
Further, over 4,700 patents focused on chromatography have been granted / filed in the past four years, indicating the substantial efforts made by researchers engaged in chromatography instrumentation and chromatography consumables domain. Most of the patents have been filed for the advancement of chromatography instrumentation, chromatography consumables and other accessories.
The global market for chromatography instrumentation and chromatography consumables is estimated to be worth USD 10.5 billion in 2023. With the increasing R&D activities and growing interest of stakeholders towards separation and purification techniques in pharmaceutical industry, the global chromatography market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% over the forecast period. In terms of type of chromatography system, currently, liquid chromatography systems are anticipated to capture the major market share, followed by gas chromatography systems.
Majority of the companies developing chromatography instrumentation and chromatography consumables are headquartered in North America, followed by companies based in Europe. Currently, North America and Europe capture over 70% market share of the overall chromatography market. In recent years, demand for chromatography systems and chromatography consumables in the North America region has witnessed a tremendous increase. However, in the coming years, owing to the anticipated drug approvals and growing need for separation processes in biopharmaceutical manufacturing, Asia-Pacific region is likely to grow at a much faster rate as compared to other geographies.
In recent years, there has been a growing focus on the advancement of chromatography techniques to make the purification and separation of different substances easy and efficient. As a result, chromatography resins have been considered as an efficient solution to address purification needs of novel COVID-19 vaccines as well as the complex biologic analytes. In July 2021, Cytiva and Pall Corporation announced the investment of more than USD 600 million (over the next two years) to develop novel chromatography resins for the analysis and purification of biomolecules and establish a new manufacturing site in the US. In addition, a surge in interest has been observed for pre-packed columns, as they are considered to be a convenient and cost-effective solution for purifying large quantities of proteins. With increase in complexity of biologics, their purification needs will also increase and chromatography companies are expected to play an important role in developing novel resins and convenient formats suitable to the pharmaceutical industry.
