Global Hydrophobic Interaction Chromatography Market: Overview

Hydrophobic interaction chromatography (HIC) is intended to exploit hydrophobic features of proteins for separating them, especially in complex biological mixtures. The technique is based on hydrophobic interactions between the surface of an analyte, in this case protein, and the stationary phase. Historically, hydrophobic interaction chromatography is used for the oxidation of tryptophan. The separation process is popularly used for purifying proteins and large polypeptides, and is especially suitable for polar and less denaturing environment. The chromatography has gained considerable steam for analyzing monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) for Asp isomerization.

Various products in the hydrophobic interaction chromatography market include resins, buffers, and columns and are increasingly being demanded for protein purification applications by pharmaceutical companies, research institutes, and contract research organizations in various parts of the world. The selection of proper resins is critical to the success of the product. Some of the major resins used in the HIC market could be bead-based and membrane-based, where the former is preferred by drug makers where adsorption o protein is required.

The insights presented in the study helps shed light on current avenues in the hydrophobic interaction chromatography market include and trends that would give rise to new frontiers for pharmaceutical companies. The assessments are helpful to provide directions for players to identify promising investment pockets in the HIC market.
