This market research study identifies Agilent Technologies, Bio-Rad, GE Healthcare, Merck, and Thermo Fisher Scientific as the leading players in the global ion-exchange chromatography market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by product (reagents, instruments, and others), by end user (pharmaceutical industry, healthcare industry, and others), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the ion-exchange chromatography market

Extensive research carried out by the market analysts at Technavio has shown that the global ion-exchange chromatography market will grow at a steady pace and will post a CAGR of close to 5% over the forecast period. Ion-exchange chromatography finds extensive applications in studying the properties of several proteins by observing and visualizing their separation patterns. The primary users of chromatography for protein application and study include the pharmaceutical industry for drug discovery and the biotechnology sector for genetic engineering. Moreover, crop yield can be improved significantly by studying the structure of soil and plant proteins. Protein purification, separation, and identification of proteins and other similar compounds have been achieved using the chromatography technique for well over a century now. Other emerging applications of ion-exchange chromatography include antibody purification, food production, disease diagnostics, analysis of wine fermentation, and histidine-tagged recombinant protein purification, and on-column refolding.

In terms of geography, the Americas led the global ion-exchange chromatography market and accounted for close to 36% of the market shares during 2015. The presence of a large number of research facilities, testing laboratories, sub-contract laboratories, and pharmaceutical companies in this region are one of the primary factors driving this market’s growth. Also, the Americas is home to several major vendors in this market, such as Thermo Fisher Scientific, GE Life Sciences, and Agilent Technologies, which will contribute to this market’s growth in the region.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The global ion-exchange chromatography market is partially fragmented with the presence of several well-established vendors. The products offered by these vendors do not largely differ in terms of functionality and design; however, the major players in the market try to differentiate themselves by providing product customization and services. The majority of vendors are increasingly directing their marketing efforts toward creating category and brand awareness. For the reagents providers, the e-commerce platform has been leveraged to promote and market their offerings over the past few years, and this trend is likely to gain traction during the estimated period.

Key vendors in this market are -

  • Agilent Technologies
  • Bio-Rad
  • GE Healthcare
  • Merck
  • Thermo Fisher Scientific

Other prominent players in the market include Becton, Dickinson and Company, Helena Laboratories, Pall Corporation, Phenomenex, Regis Technologies, Shimadzu Corporation, Tosoh Corporation, VWR International, Waters Corporation, and W.R Grace.

Product segmentation and analysis of the ion-exchange chromatography market

  • Reagents
  • Instruments

During 2015, the reagents segment dominated the market and accounted for more than 59% of the market shares in terms of revenue. The large share of this product segment can be attributed to the significantly higher volume of sales and extremely short replacement or replenishment cycles. The reagents used for ion-exchange chromatography often have a life of one process and cannot be reused. This translates to the need for new reagents and markers for every process, regardless of the technology or method employed.

Segmentation by end user and analysis of the ion-exchange chromatography market

  • Pharmaceutical industry
  • Healthcare sector

The pharmaceutical industry was the largest revenue generator for the global ion-exchange chromatography market and held more than 24% of the overall market shares in 2015. The increase in investments in the pharmaceutical industry is expected to drive the growth of this segment in the coming years. The growth of this industry will translate to the expansion of existing facilities and set up of new research and testing facilities, thereby leading to an augmented demand for not only ion-exchange chromatography instruments but also reagents and other consumables.
