2D Chromatography Market Forecast


The 2D chromatography market is expected to cross USD 55.40 million by 2027 at a CAGR of 7.4%.


Market Overview:


Two-dimensional or 2D chromatography is a chromatographic technique that separates two complex mixtures through two independent separation stages. The complex mixture from the first system is transmitted to the second column through two chromatographic columns connected in series. Various manufacturers provide 2D chromatography across the world. For instance, Agilent Technologies, Inc. (US) 1290 Infinity II 2D-LC System is marketed globally. This product is used to separate complex mixtures and achieve the highest peak capacity. In addition, it is also used to analyze samples qualitatively or quantitatively with the performance and robustness of the product.


The 2D chromatography market is expected to rise significantly in the forecast period, owing to factors such as growing R&D investments by pharmaceutical & biopharmaceutical companies, rising life science research, and growing applications of 2D chromatography in various sectors such as life science, food industry, petrochemical, and others. Furthermore, collaborations between research laboratories and 2D chromatography manufacturers are anticipated to offer significant growth opportunities in the market during the assessment period.


COVID-19 Analysis


Over the forecast period, the increasing use of chromatography in drug development and research is expected to have an impact on market growth. Researchers use chromatography, a powerful laboratory-based analytical method, to better understand the Sars-CoV-2 virus and develop new medicines, vaccines, and diagnostic tools to fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the WHO, more than 288 COVID-19 vaccines are being researched, with an estimated 184 vaccines currently being investigated in pre-clinical stages and 104 vaccines in various stages of clinical trials as of July 2021. According to the WHO Coronavirus (COVID-19) dashboard, there have been 224.5 million confirmed cases of COVID-19 and a total of 5,530 million vaccine doses administered as of 13th September 2021.
