Report Highlights

  • Manufactured enantiomeric products, produced either by racemate separation (resolution, the dominant technology to date) or by specific chiral synthesis to produce single isomer products. Although chiral resolution still is the dominant commercial technology, the value of its enabling products is much less. It only was about $103 million in 1999, compared to more than $1.6 billion that year for chiral synthesis-enabling products. The reason lies in the recovery and reuse of most separation products and the high cost (and use) of chiral chemical intermediates; the latter are the single, largest type of chiral enabling product at about $1.6 billion in 1999. We forecast continued healthy growth for all chiral manufacturing products, from a total of $1.75 billion in 1999 to almost $2.8 billion in 2004, at an average annual growth rate (AAGR) of almost 10%.
  • Chiral analysis products are materials that enable scientists to analyze chiral products and mixtures. This market, valued at about $160 million in 1999 and growing at 5.5% overall to $209 million in 2004. It is dominated by analytical chromatography, especially liquid chromatography (mainly HPLC). This latter technology accounted for $121 million of the 1999 market.
