Ion Chromatography Market Size and Growth Rate:

According to the Research Report, the Global Ion Chromatography Market Size was Expected to Reach at a CAGR of 6.8% during the forecast Period 2019-2024.

Ion Chromatography Market Growth Drivers and Restraints:

The growth of the global ion chromatography market is due to the increasing use of Ion-exchange Chromatography for purification, along with the growing demand for monoclonal antibodies, which is a primary driver for the market. The current market is also growing due to the increasing adoption of ion-exchange techniques in the food, beverage, and water industry. To check content, quality, or safety, ion chromatography is increasingly being used in various industries. The ion-exchange technique is also being used to check the presence, or amount, of ingredients in a sample. The high cost of chromatography instruments and the lack of skilled personnel to handle the equipment are hindering the growth of the ion chromatography market.

The Scope of the Ion Chromatography Market Report:

This report estimates the global ion chromatography market. It incorporates a detailed analysis of technology, which includes Ion-exchange Chromatography, Ion-exclusion Chromatography, and Ion-pair Chromatography. Ion chromatography is a well-established technique for the analysis of anions and cations in liquid, gaseous, and solid samples. Organizations, such as the ISO, US EPA, ASTM, and AOAC have established their standards on regulatory methods of analysis using this technique. Currently, electrochemical and spectrometric methods are the two detection methods applied in ion chromatography.

Ion Chromatography Market Regional Presence:

In the United States, ion chromatography is used for many applications. Ion chromatography (IC) has proven to be an effective technology for final production testing, pharmaceutical applications, environmental monitoring, food testing, and other applications. The United States Pharmacopeia (USP) is a non-government not-for-profit organization that supports itself through the sale of books (USP-NF and other publications) and reference standards. USP sets standards for the use of ion chromatography in pharmaceutical applications. Many organizations, such as USEPA (United States Environmental Protection Agency), ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials), and AOAC (Association of Official Analytical Chemists) are some of the additions to the market in the United States. These organizations also develop standards or regulatory methods of analysis for various applications of ion chromatography.

Key Market Trends of the Global Ion Chromatography Market:

There are two types of ion-exchange chromatography techniques, based on the nature of charge present on the ion. They are anion exchange chromatography and cation exchange chromatography. Ion exchange resins are useful as carriers for medicinal materials and in slow release applications. Cholestyramine, a dried and ground strong base anion resin, is used in binding the bile acid for reducing blood cholesterol. The usage of this ion exchange in the medical field is increasing and thus helping the market growth.

One of the main advantages of ion exchange is that there is only one interaction involved in the separation: the analytical species interacting with the stationary phase, and the downside of ion-exchange chromatography is the high cost of these columns. The ion-exchange chromatography market share is dominant, due to a wide range of applications and associated markets. This market share is expected to increase further during the forecast period.
