Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 - 2035

Gas Chromatography Market size is expected to cross USD 9 Billion by the end of 2035, growing at a CAGR of 7.10% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of gas chromatography was USD 4 Billion. The reason behind the growth is impelled by the rising production of petrochemicals. In the petroleum sector, gas chromatography is the most crucial separating method and is used to identify and measure the primary chemical elements present in fuel samples. Nearly 2 billion metric tonnes of petrochemicals were produced globally in 2021.

The increasing demand for animal products are believed to fuel the market growth. Rapid urbanization and lifestyle modifications have increased the demand for foods from cattle, such as meat and milk. The gas chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry method is used for the determination of melamine and pesticide residues in animal-derived foods determination and also helps in monitoring antibacterial drug residues in animal products.

By 2050, the worldwide demand for foods derived from cattle, such as meat and milk, will rise by over 60%.

Gas Chromatography Segmentation

End-User (Pharmaceuticals & Bio Industries, Academic Research Institutes, Oil & Gas Industry)

The pharmaceuticals & bio industries segment in the gas chromatography market is estimated to gain a robust revenue share of 38% in the coming years owing to the increasing demand for gas chromatography from the pharmaceutical industry. Gas chromatography is frequently employed in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries for quality control objectives, and to find contaminants in active pharmaceutical compounds, by utilizing mass spectrometers.  It is also a crucial instrument for ensuring the quality, safety, and purity of drug components during the drug discovery process. Besides this, gas chromatography is used in the bio-analysis of blood and urine for the presence of barbiturates, alcohols, narcotics, residual solvents, drugs such as anesthetics, and antihistamines. Further, it can also help identify toxins and venoms making great demand from the clinical toxicology sector.

Product (Accessories & Consumables, Instruments, Reagents)

The accessories & consumables segment is set to garner a notable share shortly. The steady increase in the demand for gas chromatography accessories, owing to their limited durability, is attributed to this. Column accessories, fittings, and pipes, autosampler accessories, flow management & pressure regulator accessories, as well as others, are also grouped into the accessories & consumables category.

The increase in the use of chromatography columns for gas chromatography techniques such as protein purification and the development of drugs will lead to a growing segment of the column accessories market. This, as a result, is anticipated to create numerous opportunities for the growth of the segment in the coming years.
