Market Overview

  • Major factors that are driving the elemental analysis market are increasing introduction of technologically advanced products, and growing research and development investments in life sciences.
  • Additionally, implementation of regulations mandating elemental analysis of pharmaceutical and biotech products and increasing awareness regarding elemental analysis are some of the other factors expected to drive the market during forecast period.
  • However, lack of skilled professionals available to perform elemental analysis is the major restraint that might impede the growth of the elemental analysis market globally.

Scope of the Report

As per the scope, Elemental Analysis is used to determine the quantity of a particular element within a molecule or material. Elemental analysis can be classified in two types i.e. Qualitative and Quantitative. Qualitative Elemental Analysis is determining what elements are present or the presence of a particular element and Quantitative Elemental Analysis is determining how much of a particular or each element is present. Elemental analysis can be performed on a solid, liquid, or gas.
