Increasing Usage of Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer (MALDI-TOF MS) is Expected to Drive Growth of the Mass Spectrometer Market
The global mass spectrometer market by product type is segmented broadly into five major segments, namely gas chromatography-MS, liquid chromatography-MS, MALDI-TOF, ICP-MS (inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry) and others. In terms of revenue, MALDI-TOF was the largest contributor to the market, followed by liquid chromatography-MS in 2017 due to the growing adoption of MALADI-ToF mass spectrometer as it offers accurate mass measurements and reduced time for analysis.
Currently, the use of this technique in clinical microbiology laboratories is growing in order to replace or complement conventional laboratory identification techniques as it provides easy, rapid, high throughput, low-cost, and efficient identification techniques. MALDI-TOF segment is projected to expand at a significant CAGR of 8.0% over the forecast period. Key trends prevalent in the mass spectrometer market are use of refurbished instruments, miniaturization of mass spectrometers, increasing investments by governments and research institutes, launch of technologically advance mass spectrometers, increasing research activities, and increasing mergers and acquisitions.
