Global Chromatography Instrumentation Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The global chromatography instrumentation market is forecasted to be worth USD 12.06 billion by 2028 from USD 8.99 billion in 2023, showcasing a CAGR of 6.06% between 2023 to 2028.

Chromatography is a technique that divides the organic and inorganic compounds of a mixture. In solution or suspension, the mixture passes through a medium where the components move at different speeds. Therefore, chromatography can spread, analyze and purify molecules effectively. Due to this, the usage of chromatography can be seen in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, F&D, hospitals, clinics, and environmental agencies. For instance, chromatography is used for quality control in the F&B industry, and this is done by separating and analyzing vitamins, proteins, additives, amino acids, and preservatives. The usage of chromatography instruments has been in existence for more than 40 years now. According to the World Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences, more than 60% of chemical analysis is done by chromatography.


The growing usage of chromatography technology in various industries is one of the key drivers propelling the chromatography instrumentation market growth.

The growing adoption of technological developments in chromatography techniques is expected to drive market growth. The increase in chromatography in the food safety and pharmaceutical industries contributes significantly to market growth. Furthermore, the growing requirement for chromatography tests for drug approval is a plus to the growth rate of the chromatography instrumentation market. In addition, factors such as the rising adoption of technological advancements in analytical instruments and investments in pharmaceutical industries are providing growth opportunities to the participants of the chromatography instrumentation market. Furthermore, the increasing government and private R&D investments propel the chromatography instrumentation market. 

The growing usage of chromatography in environmental applications is further anticipated to boost the chromatography instrumentation market.

The usage of chromatography instrumentation is growing rapidly in the oil and gas industry. Chromatography instruments can help minimize environmental harm and maintain a minimal environmental pollution emission. Gas chromatography is a technique to identify naturally harmful compounds, like volatile compounds, without any polarity. Liquid chromatography is also used in environmental analysis to identify polar, non-polar, thermolabile, and non-volatile compounds and monitor and minimize the harm to the natural spaces. 

Furthermore, factors such as increasing demand for biopharmaceuticals, rising awareness regarding the advantages associated with chromatography instrumentation, increasing adoption of high-throughput screening, growing demand for generic drugs worldwide, and increasing demand for early disease diagnosis are expected to promote the growth rate of global chromatography instrumentation market.


The high costs associated with chromatography instruments are majorly hampering the global chromatography instrumentation market growth. In addition, the lack of skilled professionals is hindering market growth. Moreover, the less availability of chromatography instruments will hamper the market in the forecast period. In addition, strict government restrictions would be the main challenge for the global chromatography instrumentation market. Further, the lack of awareness about using chromatography instruments in emerging countries is pulling the market. In addition, the presence of alternative analytical techniques is challenging market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global chromatography instrumentation market:

World Health Organization (WHO) announced COVID-19 as a pandemic in March 2020 due to the fast spread of coronavirus, and more than 200 countries have announced a lockdown. The pandemic has shown a negative impact on almost every market globally. The chromatography instrumentation market has also been negatively impacted during the COVID-19 pandemic. The decrease in supply for demand aftermarket services is the primary reason for the market downfall. In addition, the lack of workers due to lockdown restrictions had dragged the market. Furthermore, during the pandemic, insufficient funding for R&D and limited operations challenged the chromatography instrumentation market. Further, the market participants are trying to escape this pandemic by introducing new drugs. As a result, the chromatography instrumentation market will grow at a healthy rate during the forecast period.
