Nov 11, 2015, 21:10 ET from Research and Markets

DUBLIN, Nov. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Chromatography Resin Market by Type, by Technique and by Application - Global Forecasts to 2020" report to their offering.

The chromatography resin market size is estimated to grow USD 2.3 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 7.3% between 2015 and 2020. North America dominates the chromatography resins market in terms of volume

The region accounts for approximately 40.1% share in the chromatography resins market in terms of volume in 2014. The large market size is mainly due the huge demand from key end-user industries such as pharmaceutical and biotechnology, and food and beverage in key countries of the U.S. and Canada.

The market based on type is categorized into three segments, namely, natural polymers, synthetic polymers and inorganic media. Natural polymers are the widely utilized type as compared to the synthetic polymers and inorganic media. Agarose, dextran, and cellulose are the natural polymers that are most commonly used as resins in chromatography applications.

The market is classified into six segments based on technique. These are ion exchange, affinity, hydrophobic interaction, size exclusion, multi-modal, and others (partition and adsorption). Ion exchange chromatography has the highest demand among all the resins; however, affinity chromatography has the highest share in terms of value. This is primarily due to higher price of affinity resins.

The chromatography resin market based on the applications can be categorized into pharmaceutical and biotechnology (production, and academics and research), food and beverage, water and environmental analysis, and others (genetic engineering, diagnostics, and biochemistry). Pharmaceutical and biotechnology is the largest application in terms of value in 2014. The increasing demand for monoclonal therapeutic antibodies and increased research in the field of biopharmaceuticals are the key factors driving the demand for chromatography resins in this segment.

Chromatography resins are used in heavy volume in different steps of monoclonal antibody production and purification. With rising critical diseases across the world, demand for chromatography resins in the field of monoclonal antibody production is expected to rise at a high rate. In research and academics field, chromatography resins are used in drug discovery.
