Global Gas Chromatography Market to Reach US$ 3.8 Billion by 2027, Catalyzed by Increasing Applications in the Pharmaceutical Industry

September 19, 2022

IMARC Group’s latest report, titled “Gas Chromatography Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global gas chromatography market size reached US$ 2.8 Billion in 2021. Gas chromatography (GC) is the process of analyzing, quantifying, and separating compounds from chemical mixtures. It relies on flame ionization detectors (FIDs) and thermal conductivity detectors (TCDs) to identify trace components and organic and inorganic compounds. It uses carrier gas, including helium, argon, hydrogen, and nitrogen, to transfer the volatile gaseous compounds (VOCs) across the sample injector, flow controller, chromatography column, and detector for data acquisition and analysis. Compared to conventional micro-extraction and electrophoresis separation techniques, it is more cost-effective, reliable, and offers excellent benefits, such as accurate and quick separation and reproducibility. As a result, GC is widely used to test the purity of substances and separate a mixture into its basic components.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.                     

Global Gas Chromatography Market Trends: 

The increasing product applications in the pharmaceutical industry represent the primary factor driving the market growth. For instance, the growing usage of GC for drug discovery and separation of compounds from complex mixtures with enhanced precision and accuracy has augmented the product demand. In addition, there has been widespread product adoption in bio-analysis of blood and urine to identify the presence of alcohols, narcotics, barbiturates, and residual solvents and drugs, including anesthetics, antihistamines, anticonvulsants, anti-epileptic drugs, sedatives, and hypnotics. Along with this, the rising applications of GC technique in clinical toxicology, analytical research and development (R&D), quality assurance, and the detection of toxins and venoms have accelerated the product adoption rate. Furthermore, the leading manufacturers are heavily investing in R&D activities to develop advanced product variants with enhanced capability to separate and analyze complex compounds. In line with this, the launch of innovative temperature-programmed chip-based GC systems and novel GC phases with nanoparticles, ionic liquids, and co-polymers that assist in explosive inspection, environmental analysis, identifying unknown samples, and fire investigation have catalyzed the market growth. Besides this, the escalating demand for GC from various industries, such as food and beverage, biotechnology, medical, cosmetics, and oil and gas, is positively influencing the market growth. Other factors, including the expanding bioindustry sector, improving healthcare infrastructure, rising government funding for chromatography techniques, and technological advancements, are also creating a favorable market outlook. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 3.8 Billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 5.15% during 2022-2027.
