LOS ANGELES, Sept. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Top-Down Analytics (TDA), a market research and consulting firm based in Los Angeles, is pleased to announce the release of its latest study titled, "A Liquid Chromatography Survey in China: Chinese Scientists Share Their Preferences" The report is based on a survey of 223 scientists who use HPLC, UHPLC, or LC/MS instruments in China, as well as information on related products such as consumables, chemicals, software, and service.

The report accomplishes the following:

  • Uncovers the current usage patterns, needs, and expectations of Chinese laboratories utilizing HPLC and LC/MS technologies;
  • Identifies and describes the factors providing opportunities and challenges that will influence the growth of the overall market;
  • Identifies endogenous instrument manufacturers and their impact on the market; and
  • Estimates the current demand for instrumentation and provides growth projections of the Chinese market for HPLC and LC/MS through 2022

The industry in which the largest number of the respondents were employed was pharmaceuticals (26%), followed by food & agriculture (22%), government research & testing (19%), chemicals (14%), and academia (13%). With respect to laboratory function, 31% of the participants performed analytical services, followed by quality assurance/control (26%), and basic and applied research (16% and 15%, respectively).
Of the key LC technologies, more than 80% of the scientists surveyed indicated having at least one standard LC system in their labs, while nearly 60% reported having an LC/MS system, and slightly more than 50% a UHPLC system. The top two reasons provided by participants for purchasing a new LC system were the need for a new application and replacement of an existing system.

"This report is the benchmark for insights into the Chinese LC market," said Glenn Cudiamat, General Manager of Top-Down Analytics. "It will provide the reader with key strategic information, including usage rates, end-user opinions, and vendor preferences, as well as market-size estimates and growth projections."
