Chromatography is a laboratory technique intended to separate compounds from a sample mixture for purification or identification. These systems comprise a group of techniques that are used for the separation of individual components from a sample mixture. Chromatography systems involves two phases namely, stationary (fixed) and mobile (moving) phase. Mobile phase flows on the stationary phase where different migration rates of mobile phase components permit the separation of sample mixture. Increasing demand for chromatography systems has been attributed to rising number of research activities in the field of pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries coupled with rising need of separation analysis globally. In addition, incessant launch of new chromatography instruments, technological advancements and increasing awareness will further drive the growth of chromatography systems market. However, high cost involved in designing and incorporation of automated features will restrain the growth of chromatography systems market. The global chromatography systems market is estimated to be USD 6,982.3 million in 2012 and is expected to reach USD 10,364.2 million by 2019, growing at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2013 to 2019.
Chromatography systems market is segmented mainly by types and by end-users. Chromatography systems, by types segment is further classified as gas chromatography, liquid chromatography and others. Liquid chromatography is further segmented into high pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC), ultra high pressure liquid chromatography (UHPLC) and low pressure liquid chromatography (LPLC). HPLC market is estimated to be the largest market of total liquid chromatography market, expected to reach more than USD 3 billion by 2019. The growth is mainly attributed to advancement in technologies coupled with wide application areas of HPLC system in various disciplines (e.g. life science, petrochemical and biopharmaceutical). However, UHPLC market is considered to be growing at highest a CAGR of over 7% from 2013 to 2019. Others segment is categorized into ion exchange chromatography, affinity chromatography, super critical fluid chromatography, column chromatography and thin layer chromatography.
Chromatography Systems market, by end-users is segmented as biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, hospital and research laboratories, agriculture and food industries and others.

Chromatography system is a physical method of separation of biological components from various types of biological samples, air and water. Chromatography systems commonly separate sample mixture into two phase namely mobile phase and stationary phase. The components of the mobile phase run over the stationary phase followed by the differential rate of migration of the components that provide the separation of mixture. Chromatography system plays an important role in the field of pharmaceutical, biotechnology, agriculture and research laboratories by providing cheap separation methods. With increasing number of research activities coupled with introduction of advanced technologies in chromatography instruments and consumables will drive the growth of chromatography systems market.
