Analytica Acta Market Analysis and Reports | USA Conference Series

Market Analysis - Analytica Acta 2017


Pharmaceutical Hyphenated Techniques (PHT) plays an important role in both the development process and GMP manufacturing. Concerns about drug safety, costly development programs, complex manufacturing, market demands for evidence-based data and increased regulatory requirements are all issues that can be addressed through a better understanding of your drug substance, drug product or manufacturing process which, in turn, can only be achieved through experienced analytical studies and robust analytical data.

The global life science instrumentation market is projected to reach USD 64.52 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 6.8% in the forecast period (2016-2021). Factors such as technological advancements in analytical instruments, rising government spending on pharmaceutical R&D, increasing public and private life science R&D expenditure, growing food safety concerns, and progressing drug discovery and clinical diagnostics are driving the growth of the life science instrumentation market during the forecast period. Moreover, the growing proteomics market and increasing demand of analytical instruments from various industries are offering growth opportunities for market players. However, high cost of instruments, presence of alternative technologies, and dearth of skilled professionals are some of the key factors hampering the growth of this market.

Emerging markets, including India, China, Singapore, and Brazil, have become attractive destinations for companies engaged in the development and marketing of life science instrumentation products. Rising R&D activities by big pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, increased government investments towards the development of the pharmaceutical industry and growing number of CROs and research laboratories in developing nations are the key factors propelling the demand for life science instruments in the emerging markets.



As of 2016, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. held the leadership position in the global life science instrumentation market. Over the past three years, the company adopted product launches and enhancements as its key business strategy to ensure its market dominance. Agilent Technologies, Inc. (U.S.), Danaher Corporation (U.S.), PerkinElmer, Inc. (U.S.), and Shimadzu Corporation (Japan) are other key players in this market.

The United States is the largest market for pharmaceuticals (including biopharmaceuticals), accounting for around 35 percent of the global market, and is the world leader in biopharmaceutical research and development (R&D). According to the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers Association (PhRMA), U.S. firms conduct the majority of the world's research and development in pharmaceuticals and hold the intellectual property rights on most new medicines. The biopharmaceutical pipeline also has over 7,000 new medicines currently in development around the world with approximately 3,500 compounds currently being studied in the United States - more than any other region around the world. The National Science Foundation reports that the U.S. biopharmaceutical sector accounts for the largest single share of all U.S. business research and development (R&D) investment, representing 23.4 percent of all domestic R&D funded by U.S. business in 2013.

More than 854,000 people work in the biopharmaceutical industry in the United States across a broad range of occupations, such as scientific research, technical support and manufacturing. Directly and indirectly, the industry supports a total of 4.4 million jobs across the United States and added an estimated $1.2 trillion in economic output in 2014, representing 3.8 percent of total U.S. output. The biopharmaceutical industry provides average salaries well above the average for all U.S. workers, and requires a highly-skilled and educated workforce from the administrative level up to and including Ph.D. scientists.  

The global pharmaceutical market accounted for $4,948.3 million revenue in 2015, and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.1% during 2016-2022. The hybrid mass spectrometry segment accounted for largest share in the global mass spectrometry market in 2015; whereas, among the various end-users, the pharmaceuticals segment accounted for the highest share in the global market in the same year. The global mass spectrometry market is witnessing high growth rate, due to the growing food safety concerns, increasing healthcare expenditure, and technological advancements in mass spectrometers. Also, the new International GMP and GDP certification for pharmaceutical excipients is further propelling the growth of the global mass spectrometry market.
