Pharmaceutical industry, laboratory and portable Raman share in 2012

  Raman spectroscopy has developed into a major analytical tool for the pharmaceutical industry. Portable and desktop Raman systems are now widely used in the pharmaceutical industry. Despite the extremely challenging economic environment, the demand for the pharmaceutical industry is still growing at the original pace, and will return to the original growth rate next year.
At present, there are many new portable and hand-held analytical instruments for raw material and finished product inspection in the dock or production area, which is one of the largest applications in the pharmaceutical industry. Another major application is the analysis of polymorphs and salts in quality control (QC) and product development, because their changes may cause the performance of the agents to be very different.
  In 2012, the global pharmaceutical industry’s demand for laboratory and portable Raman spectroscopy instruments was approximately $36 million. Due to the global economic situation and the significant reduction in government spending, the overall market of Raman spectroscopy encountered challenges in 2013. However, in the past two years, the launch of many new products and new entrants to the market will prompt the pharmaceutical industry’s demand in 2013 to remain positive. In 2014, strong growth is most likely.
