Pune, India, August 2021/MRFR Press Release/- Market Research Future has published its half-cooked research report on the global chiral chromatography columns market.
According to MRFR analysis, the global chiral chromatography columns market is expected to register a CAGR of ~4.8% during the forecast period of 2021 to 2027.
Enantiomers can be easily extracted by using chiral chromatography. Mainly performed on Chiral Stationary Phases (CSP), chiral chromatography provides an advantage over traditional separation techniques as it can be employed to separate a variety of chiral compounds. Chiral chromatography column is extensively used in normal-phase liquid chromatography, reversed-phase chromatography, Supercritical Fluid Chromatography (SFC) and other types of chromatography. They are usefulin understanding spatial orientation of enantiomers, analyzing retention level of chiral compounds in chromatographic system and separating stereoisomers in drug purification process.
The global chiral chromatography columns market is currently dominated by several market players. The key players are involved in geographic expansion, acquisition, and strategic collaborations to maintain their global footprint in the chiral chromatography columns market.For instance, in January 2019, Chiral Technologies, Inc. (US),a subsidiary of Daicel Corporation (Japan) acquired Arbor Biosciences (US). This acquisition diversifiedChiral Technologies’ innovative and cost-effective solutionsand services offering. Similarly, manufacturers and suppliers are extending their product and services offering to support the growth of chiral chromatography columns market. For instance, in February 2019,Showa Denko America, Inc.(US), a subsidiary of Showa Denko K. K. (Japan) launcheda new application laboratory in New York City, US. This laboratory tests samples from customers to suggest best columns to be used for chromatography and helps in executing long-term projects. Increasing number of strategic decisions by manufacturers and optimum service offering from supplier side is anticipated to increase the lucrativeness ofchiral chromatography columns market.
The market has been divided, by region, into the North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World.
North America is anticipated to holdthe largest market share owing to availability of products from large number of manufacturers. Agilent Technologies, Inc. (US), Thermo Fisher Scientific (US), Waters Corporation (US) and Danaher Corporation (US) are some of the notable companies operating in the region. Moreover, mergers & acquisitions by companies operating in the region are anticipated to fuel the growth of chiral chromatography columns market.For instance, PerkinElmer, Inc. (US) added state-of-the-art chromatography columnsto its LC consumables portfolio by acquiring ES Industries (US) in March, 2021. The chiral chromatography column market North America is divided into the US and Canada.
European chiral chromatography columns market has been categorized into Germany, France, the UK, Italy, Spain, and the rest of Europe.Europe is anticipated to hold the significant market share owing to investment activities related to chromatography in the region and support from government for R&D. For example, Dishman Carbogen Amcis Ltd. (India) in August 2020 announced expansion projectcommissioning new facilities to be constructed in France and Switzerland. This project will incur approximately USD 110 million by 2024 to build new manufacturing units. Moreover, ongoing research studies utilizing chiral chromatography columns fordrug purification process in different conditions such as cancer, COVID-19 and other disorders are expected to increase the demand for preparative columns. For instance, in April 2020, Boston Pharmaceuticals (US) completed phase I clinical trial to study safety and tolerabilityof BOS172767 Enantiomers in healthy subjectsat Quotient Sciences (UK), a pharmaceutical contract development and manufacturing organization. Thus, huge investment by key players, growing utility in R&D andgovernment support for research is anticipated to increase the lucrativeness of chiral chromatography columns marketin the region during the forecast period.
The chiral chromatography columns market in Asia-Pacific has been segmented into Japan, China, India, South Korea, Australia, and the rest of Asia-Pacific. The growth of chiral chromatography column market in Asia-Pacific is anticipated during the forecast period owing to increasing number of contract research organizations, growing number of analytical laboratories and improving healthcare infrastructure. For example, Shimadzu Corporation (Japan) and Changi General Hospital (Singapore) jointly launchedShimadzu-CGH Clinomics Centre in January 2021 to conduct mass spectrometry-based clinical testing and research for personalized treatment.Moreover, the key players operating in this region are engaged in launching new and refined products. For instance, YMC Co., Ltd. (Japan) launched CHIRAL ART Cellulose SZ, a new chiral selector as an immobilized type.Thus, increasing product launch activities is expected to aid growth of the chiral chromatography columns market. The chiral chromatography columns marketin Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing. The chiral chromatography columns marketin Rest of the World has been divided into the Middle East, Africa and Latin America.
