Vacuum concentration is the method used for gentle drying, evaporation, purification, and preservation of thermally sensitive materials. The vacuum concentration method is also used in sample concentration. For instance, in the extraction of solutes from a liquid sample into a dry state or a wet-pelleted state. A vacuum concentrator is a laboratory instrument that uses a combination of heat, vacuum, and centrifugal force for the evaporation of volatile samples. Vacuum concentration is based on principle that at pressures of a few hectopascal, volatile substances boil at room temperature without freezing the specimen. A centrifugal force changes the liquid level in test tubes, thereby increasing the evaporation surface. Moreover, in vacuum concentration, overheating of the sample is prevented and the rate of evaporation is increased when heat is applied.
A significant increase in use of vacuum concentrators in laboratories, extensive use of vacuum concentrators in various industries, increased funding by laboratories to support research and development activities, rise in collaboration between manufacturers and research institutes, technological advancement, and availability of advanced and new generation vacuum concentrators with better range of speed and settings are a few factors that are expected to propel the global vacuum concentrator market during the forecast period. However, high maintenance cost of vacuum concentrators and stringent regulatory approval scenario are anticipated to hamper the global vacuum concentrators market.
The global vacuum concentrator market can be segmented based on equipment, product, end-user, and region. Based on equipment, the global vacuum concentrators market can be classified into centrifugal vacuum concentrators, acid resistant vacuum concentrators, infrared vacuum concentrators, refrigerated vacuum concentrators, complete vacuum concentrator systems, cold trap and vacuum concentrators systems, and others. The cold trap and vacuum concentrators systems segment is likely to expand at a robust pace during the forecast period. A cold trap is a device that prevents vapors released during an experiment from entering a vacuum pump, where they could condense and contaminate and corrode machine parts. The complete vacuum concentrator system segment is expected to propel the global vacuum concentrator market during the forecast period. A complete vacuum concentrators system is an all-in-one system for processing multiple samples. Every component needed for processing samples, such as vacuum concentrator, -50°C cold trap, diaphragm pump, rotor, and strobe light, is provided in a complete vacuum concentrators system.
In terms of product type, global vacuum concentrator market can be segmented into bench-top vacuum concentrators and industrial vacuum concentrator. The bench-top vacuum concentrator segment is expected to expand at a robust pace. Bench-top vacuum concentrators are cheaper, easy to maintain, and appropriate for research purposes. Based on end-user, the global vacuum concentrators market can be segmented into academic and research institutes and biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies. The biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies segment is expected to expand at a significant CAGR in the next few years as the vacuum concentration process is a part of the manufacturing process of various biotechnology- and pharmaceutical-based products available in the vacuum concentrators market.
Based on region, the global vacuum concentrators market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America is a leading region of the vacuum concentrators market, driven by financial, economic, and technological development. Europe is a prominent region of the vacuum concentrator market. Most of countries in Asia Pacific are emerging economies, with evolving R&D in molecular biology. This is expected to contribute to the growth of the vacuum concentrators market in the region. Latin America and Middle East & Africa are contributing less in vacuum concentrator’s global market due to underdeveloped research and development infrastructure of countries falling in this region.
Key players operating in global vacuum concentrators market include Labconco, Martin Christ Gefriertrocknungsanlagen GmbH, SP Scientific, Eppendorf AG, KD Scientific Inc., Gyrozen Co., Ltd, Condorchem Envitech, and Yenchen Machinery CO., Ltd.
