High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) is an analytical technique used to separate, identify, and quantify drug and drug-related impurities. HPLC is an advanced form of liquid chromatography. An HPLC system consists of a stationary phase, a mobile phase of changeable polarity, and an ultraviolet detector. In HPLC, the sample is passed through the column under high pressure (nearly 400 ATM), resulting in the faster and efficient separation of different components. HPLC can be used for various applications, including qualitative and quantitative analysis, preparation of pure substance for clinical and toxicology studies, and trace analysis.
The launch of technologically advanced systems that help in achieving higher precision and faster results is one of the key factors boosting the growth of the HPLC market. Moreover, factors such as the increasing R&D activities in the pharmaceutical companies and the rising importance of HPLC tests in the drug approval process are anticipated to propel the market growth during the projected period. However, the high cost of the equipment and dearth of skilled technicians is likely to hinder the market growth to a certain extent.
