Laboratory chemicals are used for testing air, water, and soil under certain conditions. These chemicals help in determining pollutants, trace metal acids, toxic organics, and other impurities present in the environment. The laboratory chemicals market is mainly driven by the growing R&D activities in the field of biological and chemical sciences. The laboratory chemicals market is growing primarily due to a significant increase in their use in basic research applications, coupled with large-scale commercial applications.
Laboratory chemicals are compounds or substances that are used to perform experimental and investigative procedures and for the preparation of drugs and other chemicals. These are used in large scale for commercial applications and research purpose. The significant increase in the use of chemicals in basic research applications, coupled with large-scale commercial applications has helped the laboratory chemicals market to grow.
The global laboratory chemicals market is expected to witness a moderate growth during the forecasted period, 2018-2023. Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing market during the forecast period.
On the basis of product, the market has been classified as cytokine and chemokine testing, molecular biology, immunochemistry, carbohydrate analysis, cell/tissue culture, biochemistry, and others. The molecular biology segment has been further divided into PCR reagents, gene synthesis and expression, vectors, monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies, enzymes, cloning and sequencing, and others. PCR reagents are sub-segmented into Taq DNA Polymerase, dNTP, Primer, and others. The immunochemistry segment is further sub-segmented into antibody and immunoassay stabilizers, antibody labeling, and others.
