The chromatography resin market is expected to grow at a decent pace during the coming decade driven by its increasing application in monoclonal antibody production and food analytics. Chromatography resins are primarily of two types; natural and synthetic. Inorganic media is also used in different chromatography processes. Chromatography resins are used in ion-exchange, affinity, size exclusion, hydrophobic interaction and mixed-mode techniques. Protein A resins captures the highest share of the market in terms of sales.Process scale monoclonal antibody purification is the largest application area for chromatography resin. With rising critical diseases across the world,New Zealand company moving its biomass-resin product plant to Kearney, will use distillers grains monoclonal antibody therapeutics is quickly gaining importance.
As a result the chromatography resin market is expected to have a positive performance during the next decade. Food analytics is another area where these resins are used increasingly. In research and development arena, chromatography resins find widest application in drug discovery.Geographically, North America is the major market for chromatography resin with around 40.8% of the market share in 2012. However, Asia-Pacific market is experiencing maximum growth in terms of consumption. This is primarily due to huge demand of pharmaceutical products from the large population of China and India. Moreover, emergence of a number of CMOs and CROs in Asia-Pacific is driving the growth of chromatography resin consumption in this geography.
Epoxyn Products, a maker of resins for laboratory uses, announced Tuesday that it will add 50 jobs as it expands its Mountain Home manufacturing facility.The company, along with Arkansas Gov. Mike Beebe, the Arkansas Economic Development Commission and the Mountain Home Chamber of Commerce, announced the addition at a news conference and in a statement Tuesday afternoon.De Pere, Wis.-based Epoxyn is part of laboratory furniture maker Hamilton Scientific, which builds laboratory workstations, fume hoods and epoxy resin tops. Epoxyn Products creates resins for epoxy work surfaces, sinks, balance tables, pegboards, fume hood tops and more.”Epoxyn’s success is Mountain Home’s success,” Beebe said. “An Arkansas-based company with a good product, combined with a good local workforce, often results in the creation of more jobs and more investment. That’s what we’re seeing in Baxter County, and hope to see more of throughout Arkansas’s manufacturing centers.”
