Key Market Trends

Triple Quadrupole (Tandem) is Expected to Hold Significant Market Share in the Type of Hybrid Mass Spectrometry

Tandem mass spectrometry devices are currently among the most in-demand. Conventional hospital diagnostic assays are based on clinical chemistry and immunoassay techniques that require analyte-specific reagents and antibodies. LC-MS/MS-based approaches are considered reagent-free. The high specificity and sensitivity of LC-MS/MS overcome many limitations associated with the traditional immunoassays, such as non-specific antibody binding and cross-reactivity. There is a higher demand for hybrid instruments, such as triple quadrupole mass spectrometer, quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometer, etc. Currently, triple quadrupole MS is considered one of the most high-end instruments, and many labs across the world are adopting this instrument.

North America Dominates the Market and Expected to do the Same in the Forecast Period

Research and development include drug development and fundamental science research. Drug development, from the initial discovery to the final medication, is an expensive and lengthy process, and the failure rate is also high. High cost, lengthy-time period, and the high failure rate are forcing researchers and drug manufacturing companies to look for newer technology, which can improve the process and reduce the cost at the same time. Mass spectrometry has the potential to do the same. It makes a functional and structural study, which takes a significant amount of time and resources in drug development, for the molecule, easier and faster. The funding and government initiatives in the region boost market growth.
