Prepacked chromatography columns represent types of chromatography columns that contain predefined chromatographic media for separation, purification or analytical applications. The prepacked columns offer advantages like reduced preparation time and elimination of errors during packing of columns.
The global Prepacked Chromatography Columns Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 307.6 Mn or Million in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 7.9% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Market key trends:
One of the major trends in the prepacked chromatography columns market is the development of multifunctional and multimodal chromatography columns. These columns can perform various separations functions like purification, standardization, analysis etc. in a single run. For example, mixed-mode chromatography columns offer both reversed-phase and ion-exchange separations capabilities. Such multifunctional columns help improve efficiency and reduce the need for multiple purification steps, thereby driving their demand. Furthermore, advancement in column packing technology has enabled development of columns with optimized bed densities and uniform flow rates, resulting in improved resolution and productivity.
Strength: Prepacked chromatography columns require less initial training and investment as compared to manually packing columns. They provide consistency and high reproducibility in purification and separation processes.
Weakness: Prepacked columns have a shorter lifespan than manually packed columns. They cannot be tailored as per specific needs of separation and purification.
Opportunity: Growing demand from biopharmaceutical industry for large-scale purification of monoclonal antibodies and recombinant proteins is driving the demand for prepacked chromatography columns. Increasing pharmaceutical R&D expenditures will also boost the market.
Threats: Development of alternative technologies like membrane chromatography and continuous chromatography systems pose a threat to demand. High costs associated can also challenge market growth.
Global Prepacked Chromatography Columns Market Size is expected to witness high growth, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.9% over the forecast period, due to increasing R&D investments in pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries.
North America dominated the market in 2022 owing to presence of many key players and availability of infrastructure and skilled workforce for R&D. Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing market due to expansion of biopharmaceutical industry in countries like China and India. Increasing generics production and rising focus on biosimilars will drive the APAC region.
