Expanded Use of Liquid Chromatography Stimulates Market Growth

December 12, 2007

A new study by Frost & Sullivan shows that the liquid chromatography (LC) market in the U.S. will grow from an estimated $596.3 million in 2006 to $1.018 billion by 2013, thanks to increasing interest and use from both the commercial and research communities.

The life sciences is a particularly predominant user of LC as a separations methodology because it provides a greater level of efficiency than other separation approach can achieve for processing high volumes of biomolecular- or chemical-based samples.

Commercial users seek liquid chromatography instruments capable of performing molecular separations with higher resolution, those that are able to process high quantities of samples, and those designed for constant use.

As a result, LC product manufacturers that provide columns, resins, and other consumables needed for liquid chromatographic analyte separation will experience much of the anticipated growth.
