An analytical standard is a high-grade compound of known concentration that is used as a reference standard for a specific test. Standards are used to check the presence of specific components in mixtures, to perform a calibration or a test of an analyzer, to increase the precision of quantitative analysis, and for other purposes. Analytical standards are applicable for different analytical techniques such as chromatography (HPLC, GPC, and GC), spectrophotometry, electrophoresis, microscopy, titration, and physical property testing, covering pharmaceutical & life sciences standards, environmental standards, food and beverage standards, forensic & toxicology standards, etc.

Analytical standard plays a major role in the pharmaceutical industry in assessing and evaluating the physical & chemical stability of drug molecules. Rapid growth in the life science, healthcare, and pharmaceutical industries is projected to drive the growth of the analytical standard market in the upcoming years.

  • For instance, according to the data published by the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Association in 2021, the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sector accounted for about 18.4% of total business R&D expenditure worldwide in 2020.

In addition, analytical standards have extensive applications in the development of various biomarkers, production of biological drugs, and therapeutic drug monitoring which is projected to increase its demand. Furthermore, the rise in the global prevalence of infectious diseases, cancers, HIV, and other diseases has necessitated the development of novel drugs and their validation with enhanced quality which leads to the growth of the global market.

  • For instance, according to data published by World Cancer Research Fund International, around 18.1 million cancer cases were reported in 2020 across the globe. The number is projected to rise to 28.89 million cases by 2040.

Moreover, manufacturers in the market are focusing on expanding their market presence by opening analytical lab services in pharmaceutical manufacturing, thereby projected to drive the growth of the global market.

  • For instance, in December 2022, the U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP) announced the opening of the USP Advanced Manufacturing Technology Lab as part of its launch of a suite of R&D analytical solutions. These analytical lab services support the efforts of drug manufacturers seeking to adopt advanced manufacturing technologies including pharmaceutical continuous manufacturing (PCM) as one way to expand geographic presence and support medicines supply chain resilience.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Analytical Standards Market

The analytical standards market witnessed a positive impact in 2020 of the COVID-19 pandemic. They were extensively used in the manufacturing of COVID-19 vaccines, thereby influencing the growth of the market. Furthermore, the COVID-19 outbreak gave rise to innovations and product development in analytical standards. Prominent players in the market increased their investment in new product developments as a response to the growing market needs.

  • For instance, in May 2020, LGC’s (U.K.) SeraCareLife Sciences (U.S.) announced the release of ACCURUN Anti-SARS-CoV-2 Reference Materials to address the critical need for clinical laboratories to respond to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

However, the research activity continued to grow rapidly after the second wave and led to the extensive use of analytical standards to produce vaccines. It has also empowered drug discovery scientists to test the potency of the vaccine. Therefore, since the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, the market boomed and is expected to grow over the forecast period.
