Chromatography software market has witnessed wide applications with increased R&D activities across the pharmaceutical sector. It is claimed that the software reduces the timeline of the sample data analysis that the pharma companies need.
Food-borne diseases and contamination has made testing a vital process. One of the most reliable features of the software is its nature of the operation. Many testing agencies are preferring the software as all the chromatography data can be processed, combined, managed, and reported all under one portal.
Reportedly, global chromatography software industry size is predicted to cross USD 822 million by 2028. Technological advancements have allowed companies to make software that make food quality checks easier. The data solutions available in the market and the techniques used to collect the data are highly compatible. For instance, an appropriate quality check of food products requires an analysis of mixtures that need to be separated carefully through processes like liquid chromatography (LC), supercritical fluid technique (SFC), or gas chromatography (GC).
Technological advancements augmenting a bright industrial future
Numerous market players are working on research activities and creating innovative solutions for the betterment of the industry. For example, a chromatography data system software (CDS) has been launched by Jason Inc, a leader in the chromatography software market. The recent ChromNAV 2.0 HPLC software is said to be quick to learn operations.
Advancements in the new techniques reduce the operation time and save the functional cost as well. Scion Instruments, an industry player, has created a standalone CDS software that helps perform HPCL testing on pharma samples. The solution can also be used in laboratories for testing. Further, the OpenLad CDS developed by Agilent Technologies allows the control of GC, LC, and single quadrupole LC/MS in the lab using the single user interface.
Standalone chromatography solution segment driving the market trends
During 2022-2028, the standalone chromatography software industry share is projected to expand at a CAGR of 7.8%. Miniaturization of electronic components has enabled the development across the segment. Safe and convenient mobile control is provided by companies for their systems. The current focus of the market is multipurpose standalone software-based devices.
Companies are focusing on the creation of versatile and optimum functionality software. The integration of mass spectrometry technology in standalone devices has made the process simpler. Earlier, these devices needed locally stored data and remote access was not available. It also meant the use of multiple software packages. This can now be eliminated using the latest innovations in the chromatography software industry.
In 2021, the electronic testing segment had a considerable share of the industry. The segment is forecasted to grow at an 8.6% rate during the forecasted period. Several government policies have been imposed related to several testing and inspection processes.
The key players in the chromatography software market are Bruker Corporation, Agilent Technologies, Gilson Inc., Waters Corporation, Axel Semrau, Restek Corporation, and Shimadzu Corporation among others. Strategic development by these players has created new initiatives for the betterment of the industry and future growth is expected to be seen from existing key drivers such as biotechnology applications and hospital end-users.
