Elemental analysis is a process of detection and quantification of elemental compounds, molecular species and elements. This analysis technique is a part of analytical chemistry and can be qualitative and quantitative in nature. Sample types tested for trace elements comprises of aqueous, non-aqueous, organic and non-organic materials. For organic chemists, elemental analysis refers to CHNX analysis, which is used to determine the purity and structure of a compound. In this technique, a sample is burnt in excess of oxygen and thereby collecting combustion products like carbon dioxide, nitric acid and water. The masses of these products are used to determine composition of the sample. Ultra trace analysis and elemental trace analysis detection range from parts per million (ppm), to parts per billion (ppb) and parts per trillion (ppt) levels, using updated techniques and instruments. Some of the major technologies used for elemental analysis include inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry, inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry, X-ray Fluorescence and X-ray Diffraction among others.
Some of the key driving factors for elemental analysis market are increasing concern for food safety, increasing usage of X-ray fluorescence in clinical research and growing R&D funding in life sciences. Moreover, this technology has a wide range of application areas in different segments of industry and thus has a major market worldwide. There are other geographical drivers which are also responsible for the growth of the market. In addition, demand from emerging markets across India and China are expected to create opportunities for elemental analysis market in the future. However, high cost of elemental analyzers and urge for efficient professionals act as major restraints to the growth of the market.
Global elemental analysis market can be broadly classified on the basis of types, technology, applications and geography. By types, the market for elemental analysis is segmented into organic and inorganic. The market is divided by technology into destructive and non-destructive technologies. Moreover, elemental analysis has different application areas including food and beverage testing, life sciences, environment testing and geology among others.
Currently North America is dominating the market for elemental analysis in terms of revenue, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific. The major factor responsible for immense development of elemental analysis market in North America is rapid technological advancement of this technique in various application areas, such as food and beverage, biotechnology, chemical and semiconductor industries among others. However, Asia Pacific is anticipated to grow at a significant rate in the future, primarily due to increasing awareness for elemental analysis in China and India coupled with rising demand from applied markets. Furthermore, strategic expansion by manufacturers in China and use of modern analysis technique in Chinese medicines are likely to develop the market for elemental analysis in Asia Pacific.
