Solid Phase Extraction Market Trends


Growth in generics industry is driving the market growth


As a result of increased demand for drug development, the market for solid phase extraction equipment has expanded. As the generics sector is expected to account for more than 80% of the pharmaceutical market in the future years, the demand for SPE is projected to increase. For instance, Invest India (India) reports that generic drugs make up 71% of the Indian pharmaceutical business. The EU intends to establish laws that will significantly lower barriers for less priced biosimilars to enter the market, reducing the probability of future drug shortages, as was the case during the COVID-19 epidemic. According to Statista (Germany), over 65% of medications sold in European countries like Italy are generic.


The rising use of SPE consumables in the pharmaceutical industry is largely responsible for this market's growth. The growing demand for high-throughput sample analysis needs, LC-MS-MS techniques, and liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) has led to a need for the SPE consumable in the pharmaceutical business. The rise in R&D spending in the medical industry has increased demand for SPE consumables. An further factor driving the growth of this market is the ongoing automation of the SPE processes that are replacing the older manual SPEs. Automated SPE has several benefits over manual SPE using a vacuum manifold, including increased laboratory productivity and a reduction in time and solvent use. These elements encourage market growth.


Furthermore, precision is quite important in the analysis. The necessity for automatic SPE is exacerbated by the manual SPE's variable precision from operator to operator, batch to batch, and sample to sample. However, issues with users' sample handling pose a significant barrier to the market's growth. The hefty initial setup expenses in addition to a workforce that lacks the requisite skills significantly restrict market expansion. However, ongoing advancements in SPE methods that have given rise to a new generation of SPE technologies are creating new chances for business growth. The SPE consumable business has a chance as research study funding from numerous organisations rises. For instance, in March 2018, the German Research Foundation gave four new sequencing sites in Germany more than USD 17 million.


Numerous technological developments have been made in the solid phase extraction (SPE) market in order to satisfy the requirements of the biotechnology and biopharmaceutical industries, as well as the food and beverage, chemical, semiconductor, and environmental testing sectors. These developments have made it possible to build compact, automated, and computerised devices. SPE gadgets are now easier to use and more practical thanks to technical improvements. Rising automation and technology development are anticipated to drive market expansion. For instance, in May 2019, Biotage (Sweden) unveiled its series of Atlantic ReadyDisk SPE discs. The ready-to-use SPE discs in this line save time by not requiring disc holders to be cleaned. The Strata-X-Drug B Plus SPE product for urine drug testing in forensic and clinical drug testing was made available by Phenomenex Inc. (US) in May 2018.


Thermo Scientific Dionex Auto Trace 280 PFAS SPE equipment, a fully automated SPE device for drinking water analysis, was also unveiled by Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. (US) in March 2020. The OttoTM SPEcialist Positive Pressure Manifold, which tackles a weakness in current SPE devices by boosting dependability and reproducibility of results, was introduced by Waters Corp (US) in January 2021. Therefore, such product introductions and advancements are encouraging market expansion. Thus, driving the Solid Phase Extraction market revenue.


Solid Phase Extraction Market Segment Insights


Solid Phase Extraction Type Insights


The Solid Phase Extraction market segmentation, based on type, includes SPE disk, SPE cartridge, and others. SPE cartridge segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2022. The SPE cartridge's rise is mostly attributed to its acceptance in the food, environmental protection, commodities inspection, and pesticide residues application industries. By avoiding voiding, clogging, and channelling, the use of SPE cartridges benefits the market by lowering the expense of expensive reanalysis of bioanalytical samples.


Solid Phase Extraction Application Insights


The Solid Phase Extraction market segmentation, based on application, includes pharmaceutical industries, academic & research institutes, environmental, hospitals & clinics, and others. Environmental segment dominated the  Solid Phase Extraction market in 2022. This is because there is a growing need for pretreatment due to the size of the water sample.
