The Laboratory Gas Generators Market size is expected to grow from USD 473.05 million in 2023 to USD 650.86 million by 2028, at a CAGR of 6.59% during the forecast period (2023-2028).
COVID-19 impacted the laboratory gas generators market due to the disruption of operation and supply chain, decreased customer demand, and global economic slowdown. Thus, the closure of academic institutions and laboratories across the globe has resulted in a significant loss of segmental revenue for businesses. Moreover, the demand for laboratory gas generators increased during the pandemic due to COVID-19-related laboratory-based research and development activity. For instance, in June 2021, Novagenix used PEAK nitrogen generators in their COVID-19 drug discovery study to assess and certify the efficacy and quality of medications in Turkey. Such usage of laboratory gas generators in drug discovery of COVID drove the demand for laboratory gas generators during the pandemic. Thus, the COVID-19 pandemic has boosted the market's growth and is expected to follow the same traction during the forecast period of the study.
The growth in this market is primarily driven by the rising safety concerns related to conventional gas cylinders use, the growing importance of analytical techniques in drug and food approval processes, and increasing R&D spending in target industries.
Analytical chemistry plays a crucial role in drug development, ensuring novel medications' quality, safety, and efficacy. Although several analytical methods are utilized in the pharmaceutical sector, three general analytical techniques are chiefly used to determine the structure, separate analytes, and quantify target compounds. These include chromatography, spectroscopy, and conventional analytical chemistry techniques. The application of analytical testing is growing for detecting and identifying dangerous chemicals, including both adulterants and pharmaceutically active compounds. In this context, the Azo optics article published in March 2022 stated that ultraviolet/visible (UV/Vis) and infrared (IR) spectroscopy are two standard spectroscopic techniques used to quantify the presence of food additives in their finished food items. These two methods can offer crucial details about the chemical composition, textural traits, and quality-related aspects of food additives. Thus, with the increasing spectroscopy use for analytical testing of the food approval process, laboratory gas generators are also expected to increase, thereby boosting the market growth.
Furthermore, high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) techniques use stationary phases containing proteins and phospholipids to simulate the biological environment where diffused drug molecules are known as biomimetic chromatography. The article published by European Chemical Societies in April 2022 mentioned using biomimetic chromatographic data to forecast the aquatic toxicity of drugs and pesticides. Such increasing adoption of these analytical techniques is expected to generate the demand for laboratory gas generators, frequently used to perform them, thereby driving the market growth.
Additionally, the PharmaVoice article published in July 2022 stated that in the five years running up to 2022, the biotechnology sector's R&D spending nearly doubled. As the biotechnology labs are a controlled environment, the nitrogen laboratory gas generators are primarily used in such labs. Thus, with the increasing investment in the biotechnology industries, the growth of laboratory gas generators is anticipated.
Moreover, market players are also involved in strategies such as acquisitions, mergers, and product launches, among others. For instance, in August 2022, Tisch Environmental acquired AADCO Instruments (Advanced Analytical Device Company). The company AADCO is developing a state-of-the-art line of Zero Air Generators.
Hence, factors such as the growing importance of analytical techniques in drug and food approval processes, growing R&D expenditure, and increased market player activities such as mergers and acquisitions are expected to witness growth over the forecast period. However, reluctance to replace conventional gas supply methods and lack of skilled personnel is expected to restrain the market's growth.

Nitrogen Gas Generators is Expected to Hold Significant Share in the Market Over the Forecast Period
Nitrogen gas generator is expected to contribute to the growth of the studied segment over the forecast period. Nitrogen gas generators are machines that separate nitrogen molecules from compressed air. It is widely adopted in the food industry, semiconductors, petroleum, chemistry, and research institutes. Factors such as the growing importance of analytical techniques in drug and food approval processes, rising food safety concerns, and increasing R&D spending in target industries are driving segment growth. Additionally, advantages such as low reactivity with other compounds and the ability to control ambient oxygen levels are increasing the adoption of nitrogen gas generators in carrying out liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) analysis to operating evaporative light scattering detectors (ELSDs) and maintaining environmental conditions in Vitro Fertilization (IVF) incubators.
Conventional nitrogen cylinders are associated with several downsides, such as a higher risk of leaks. For instance, an NPR study article published in January 2021 demonstrated how dangerous nitrogen leaks had killed six people and caused 11 hospitalizations in the Northeast Georgia poultry plant. The report also mentions that storing vast amounts of pressurized, highly flammable nitrogen in laboratories increases the risk of fire and explosions. Hence there is an increase in demand for advanced nitrogen gas generators as it mitigates these risks. These nitrogen gas generators are compact, consistent, cost-effective, and easy to operate. Thus, such advancements boost the demand for nitrogen gas generators.
Moreover, companies are also involved in marketing strategies such as acquisitions, mergers, and product launches. For instance, in September 2021, another company Nikkiso Cryogenic Industries' Clean Energy & Industrial Gases Group, reported that Nikkiso Cosmodyne recently commissioned its TGNO-1000 gaseous oxygen and nitrogen plant. TGNO is a cryogenic oxygen and nitrogen generator designed to produce three gaseous product streams, which are medium and high-pressure nitrogen and oxygen gas.
Additionally, in July 2021, Scientific Laboratory Supplies launched a line of SLS lab pro gas and liquid nitrogen generators, available exclusively in the UK and Ireland. This technology gives laboratories control over their gas supplies and promotes sustainability by eliminating the need for cross-country transportation of gas canisters.
Likewise, the rising research and expenditure for developing various biologics or pharmaceutical products are also expected to reflect positively on the growing demand for nitrogen gas generators.
Thus, due to the growing preference for nitrogen gas performance over conventional nitrogen cylinders and innovative product launches, the overall market for nitrogen gas generators will grow steadily over the forecast period of the study.
