In addition, the integrated software facilitates coordination between one or more labs and enables faster access to data and analysis. The standalone software provides higher in-depth reporting capabilities, the standalone attributes enable the delivery of highly detailed and focused data and reports leading to further adoption of the chromatography software.

Deployment Model Insights

The web and cloud-based software segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 72.1% in 2020. The segment is expected to witness the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. The growth of the market can be attributed to higher flexibility, quick accessibility, easy data backup, and lower handling costs. In addition, the real-time tracking and storing of data, free large storage space to store humongous data, and remote access to data from any location and device are likely to support the growth of the segment.

Moreover, the on-premise software systems offer features such as easy retrieval of data, data security and privacy, and easy access to data. Moreover, the customization option, convenient installation, and complete control on the operations and working of the software.

Application Insights

The pharmaceutical industry segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 33.4% in 2020. The chromatography software brings workflows, operators, and instruments under a single system to synchronize the management, reporting, and processing of chromatography data. Chromatography techniques are used to analyze the purified compounds for trace contaminants and to make huge quantities of highly pure materials. The pharmaceutical industry is one of the most regulated industries worldwide and ensuring the reliability of the data in QA and QC workflows is of critical importance to the release of safe and effective products.

Global chromatography software market share, by application, 2020 (%)

On the other hand, the environmental testing segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment over the forecast period owing to the rise in the application of chromatography techniques to identify the state of the environment and the abnormalities in it. The chromatography helps monitor the environment by analyzing pollutants in water and the presence of volatile organic compounds in the atmosphere, thus further increasing the demand for the chromatography software.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 49.1% in 2020. The market growth can be attributed to the higher adoption of technology in laboratory testing and the policies supporting the deployment of these technologies to ensure accurate results.
