    Segment Analysis

    Capillary Tubes Dominated in 2020.

    These tubes have most of their utilization in connecting different chromatography devices and are used in almost all types of chromatography. It is also expected to be the faster-growing market segment as compared to the autosampler loop tubes and column tubes during 2021-2026, propelled by their extensive usage across all types of chromatography.

    Autosampler loop tubes are mostly used by the liquid chromatography (LC) instruments, as a result of their high precision and automation features.

    Stainless Steel is Dominantly Used in Manufacturing Chromatography Tubes

    The key factors which makes stainless steel the material of choice are:

    • Low cost
    • High availability
    • Ability to support high pressure

    Despite all the above features, stainless steel is a heavy material, which results in increasing the operating costs. Therefore, the manufacturers of chromatography tubes are gradually shifting towards the usage of peek polymer, which not only possesses all the positive qualities of stainless steel but is also an inert and lightweight material, albeit being bit expensive.

    Other materials such as titanium and nickel, are also used for manufacturing chromatography tubes, but they are not as widely used as stainless steel and peek polymer.

    Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology were the Top 2 Applications in 2020

    Pharmaceutical and biotechnology were dominant in 2020, collectively accounting for over 70% of the market.

    Pharmaceutical application is likely to be the fastest-growing segment owing to the rising investments in the manufacturing of drugs, increasing development of pharmaceutical infrastructure along with the establishment of new medical centers in various parts of the globe.

    Regional Market Share Analysis

    North America had the largest market share in 2020, owing to the presence of a large number of chromatography system manufacturers, component manufacturers, distributors, and raw material suppliers in the region.

    Asia Pacific is estimated to be the fastest-growing region during 2021-2026, due to the large investments in the life science, oil and gas, and agriculture sectors, in recent years. The countries such as China, India, and Japan are expected to contribute majorly to the region's growth. Moreover, big instrument manufacturers such as Shimadzu and Tosoh Bioscience have their headquarters in the Asia-Pacific region

    Market Scope

    What is Chromatography?

    Chromatography is one of the most reliable laboratory techniques used for the separation of mixtures. Chromatography can be used for either preparative or analytical purposes. The most commonly used form of chromatography is liquid chromatography, which is utilized in applications such as food & beverage, chemical, and drug discovery, whereas gas chromatography is mostly employed in the petrochemical sector. Typically, a column, injector, low-pressure pump, detector, capillary tubes, and in some cases, a fraction collector are included in a conventional chromatography system.
