DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/qq64lc/global_laboratory)
has announced the addition of the "Global
Laboratory and Handheld Raman Instruments Market 2012-2016"
report to their offering.
TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Laboratory and Handheld Raman
Instruments market to grow at a CAGR of 11.75 percent over the period
2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is
the increase in government regulations to ensure the safety and quality
of food and drugs. The Global Laboratory and Handheld Raman Instruments
market has also been witnessing thetrend of an increase in mergers and
acquisitions. However, the availability of alternative devices could
pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
The key vendors dominating this market space are HORIBA Ltd., Thermo
Fisher Scientific Inc., PerkinElmer Inc., and Bruker Corp.
The other vendors mentioned in the report are JASCO Analytical
Instruments, and B&W Tek Inc.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Healthcare team
said: ''There have been cases where harmful toxins have been found in
food and cosmetic items. In recent years, the Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) has initiated strict protocols for the testing of
all food items for toxins. A wide variety of equipment can be used for
testing food items; however, it is very difficult to test certain
cosmetic items. For instance, testing toothpaste for toxins is very
difficult. However, a Raman instrument can perform tests for the
identification of toxins in toothpaste. Therefore, Raman instruments are
being widely used in various tests for the identification of toxins.''
According to the report, one of the key drivers of the market is the
increase in government regulations to ensure the safety and quality of
food and drugs. Raman instruments are used to identify the composition,
strength, quality, purity, and potency of food and drugs.
