The global life science market is evolving rapidly and growing at a steady rate, a trend we expect to increase in the coming years, thanks in part of advances in technology. The industry has also seen real growth in research and development among pharmaceutical companies in drug discovery and clinical diagnostics. Increased funding filtering through from government and corporate sectors encourages research and further innovation in the technology used in the life sciences.
Chromatography is a big contributor to this growth. A recent report by Marketsandmarkets has suggested that the global market for chromatography instruments may grow at a compound annual growth rate as high as 6.9% from 2017 to 2022, to reach $10.99 billion.
However, the increased demand for instruments and cutting-edge research is also highlighting that the industry needs lab technicians who can carry out the groundwork that leads to scientific breakthroughs. Although that represents a potential challenge for the forecasted growth of the market, there is increasing support available within the industry to encourage building better science.
