Spectrometry Market
Spectrometry Market


Global Spectrometry Market is anticipated to grow with an elevated CAGR of around 7% over the forecast period (2021-2027). Spectrometry is a technique for studying and measuring a specific spectrum and is usually used for the spectroscopic analysis of sample materials. These are of different types such as molecular, mass, and atomic spectroscopy techniques based on the sample that is to be tested.

The surging prevalence of various rare diseases and rising investment in research & development of pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies, the spectrometry market is witnessing an uptick all over the globe. For instance, the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) trade group represents the leading biopharmaceutical research companies in the United States. In 2019, the research and development (R&D) expenditure of its member companies reached USD 83 billion worldwide, up from USD 79.6 billion in 2018. Furthermore, the growing focus on the launch of new drugs owing to the support by the government for research and investments and the need for pharmaceutical analysis is also propelling the growth of this market.

Furthermore, with the rapid advancement in technology and rising investment in R&D for introducing new and advanced devices, many industry players are focusing on expanding their product portfolio by launching new products in the market due to which the spectrometry market is expected to grow across the globe. For example, in November 2021, Thermo Fisher Scientific launched its new mass spectrometry (MS) instruments, workflows, and software. The company’s Orbitrap Exploris MX mass detector allows biopharmaceutical laboratories to implement a multi-attribute method (MAM) and perform intact analysis of monoclonal antibodies, conduct oligonucleotide mass determination, and carry out peptide mapping.
