Market Overview:

In analytical chemistry and biochemistry, high-performance liquid chromatography is a chromatographic technique used to separate a mixture of substances in order to identify, measure, or purify each component of the mixture. Due to its properties, such as high sensitivity, this enables it to assess samples with extremely low concentrations, such as nano-gram and pictogram samples, to precisely identify molecules with comparable chemical properties, such as monoamines, as well as to detect compounds with complex chemistry.

Government involvement in environmental and food safety regulation, a growing emphasis on accurate diagnostics, and rising acceptance of chromatographic techniques as a normal practice for determining the expiration and specificity of drug components are all anticipated to contribute to the market growth in the years to come. It is also projected that the growth of the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries will be impacted by the entry of current important players in emerging markets.

Furthermore, the expansion of the high-pressure liquid chromatography market is also being fueled by the introduction of ultra-high performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC) and the expanding use of automation in HPLC systems. Automation enhances analysis speed and accuracy while UHPLC offers quicker and more effective separations. Several industries, including biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, and environmental monitoring, are becoming more dependent on precise analytical data. The high-pressure liquid chromatography market is also growing due to its potent method for acquiring high-quality analytical results.

Regional Insights:

Market Dynamics:


Increasing use in pharmaceutical applications 

The increasing use of HPLC in pharmaceutical applications is likely to augment the growth of the market during the forecast period. Since it can deliver the exact results needed, HPLC is the type of liquid chromatography that is typically utilized in the pharmaceutical business. The findings can be applied to a quantitative and qualitative manufacturing process analysis of the ingredients and finished medicinal products. This can be utilized to identify a medicine and track the success of a therapy on an illness. It is accomplished through the separation, measurement, and identification of components in a mixture.

The pharmaceutical sector also uses HPLC as a chromatographic technique, despite initial expectations that it would complement gas chromatography. Quantifying the concentration of contaminants and determining the structure in pharmaceutical formulations is one of the primary benefits of HPLC. High molecular weight, thermally unstable, and difficult to volatilize chemicals are particularly well suited for HPLC. It may therefore measure a medication in both its pure and dose form. In the pharmaceutical sector, reversed-phase, denaturing, and immobilized enzyme reactor (IMER) HPLC are also used. Thus, with the increasing use of HPLC in pharmaceuticals, the demand for HPLC is expected to increase in the years to come.


Lack of skilled professionals

HPLC is a complex technique that requires skilled professionals to operate and maintain the systems. The shortage of skilled professionals in some economies is likely to limit the adoption of HPLC systems. Due to the numerous combinations of HPLC's modules, columns or mobile phases, and operating parameters, it is a complicated method. For HPLC & UHPLC, the new standard platform of HPLC to be used effectively and a deeper understanding of the fundamentals are becoming more crucial. A key necessity for creating novel strategies to have significant influence on life science for a brighter future is passionate separation scientists with LC-MS skills and a thorough awareness of the major biological concerns.


New product launches to offer lucrative growth opportunity

The introduction of numerous liquid chromatography method development systems and supporting software in recent years is anticipated to make HPLC system usage simpler and increase its productivity. For instance, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. and ChromSword worked together to introduce the Thermo Fisher Vanquish HPLC and UHPLC method development system in August 2021. Similar to that, Shimadzu Corporation introduced the Nexera XS inert high-performance liquid chromatograph to the world in February 2022. In order to deliver reliable readings of biopharmaceuticals and medium molecule drugs, the Nexera XS inert integrates rust-resistant materials and nonmetallic elements that prevent the adsorption of chemicals. The introduction of such products is likely to create growth opportunities and increase the use of HPLC systems.
