Global Life Science and Chemical Instrumentation Market: Drivers and Restraints
With governments across the world setting up incubation programs and special economic zones for companies in fields such as biotechnology and pure chemistry, the demand for life sciences and chemical instrumentation is expected to continually rise. Moreover, regulatory authorities in emerging countries such as Brazil, India, China, and Russia are now watching the F&B and pharma industries more closely in the wake of food scandals and pharmaceutical product recalls. This will compel companies to adhere to the highest quality standards, which will indirectly lead to higher sales of life science and chemical instrumentation products.
The cost of developing and marketing such instruments, however, can be a stumbling block for many market players. With companies naturally passing on costs to the consumers, the latter may be prompted to find more affordable alternatives, thwarting the growth plans of market players.
Global Life Science and Chemical Instrumentation Market: Segmentation
The most common uses of life science and chemical instrumentation market are seen in healthcare research agencies, contract research organizations, pharmaceutical and biotech entities, clinical and diagnostic laboratories, and academic research institutions.
