Key Market Trends

The Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology industry Segment is Expected to Hold a Major Market Share in the UV spectroscopy Market

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for UV spectroscopy will increase, resulting in the demand for UV spectroscopy as it is used extensively in the vaccine production process. Ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy is extensively used in the pharmaceutical industry for the structure elucidation of different organic molecules in order to determine the presence of heteroatoms or to gather information regarding the saturation state of a compound. It also finds a wide range of applications in the industries' quality assurance and quality control areas. The increase in the innovations in biotechnology research and increasing focus on pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to expand their product pipelines attribute to the growth of this segment.

As per the data published in 2020 by, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) the gross domestic spending on Research and development in the United States was around 0.58 million USD in 2019, which was an increase from 0.61 Million USD in 2018. Therefore, the increasing gross domestic expenditure on Research and development by the biotechnology industries is expected to drive the demand for the UV spectrophotometer in the forecast period.

Additionally, The rise in the necessity for environmental monitoring contributes to the market's growth. According to World Health Organization, in 2020, An estimated 24% of the global disease and 23% of all deaths can be attributed to environmental factors. Therefore, the employment of Ultraviolet Visual Spectroscopy is crucial in environmental monitoring to examine the risk factors which propel the market's growth.
