According to TMR, “one of the key factors boosting the growth of the global pre-packed chromatographic columns market is its versatility and suitability across industries in order to detect and separate organic molecules and components.” A significant role is played by pre-packed chromatographic columns in the production of biopharmaceutical products, research, chemicals, forensics, food and beverage, biotechnology, and agriculture. As the application area of these columns is extremely wide, the global pre-packed chromatographic columns market is expected to continue to grow.
In addition to this the increasing number of monoclonal antibodies which are being used for clinical trials driving the growth to market. The number of monoclonal antibodies which have been approved for therapeutic applications is also increasing and this is favouring the global pre-packed chromatographic columns market. On the other hand, the high price of pre-packed chromatographic columns may act as the restraining factor which will slow down the growth of this market. Also, there are limitations as a result of plugging and fouling which will also impact the market negatively.
