Silica gel as a stationary phase is largely accepted as one of the top adsorbents used in column chromatography as well as other separation techniques. One of the major advantages is its tremendous affinity for adsorption. Additionally, it is commercially very readily available in several different sizes and types. The major significant reason for silica gel used as a stationary phase in column chromatography is that it has feasible to obtain the extract essential size of the particle size for a particular method.
Silica gel is a polar adsorbent that is slightly acidic and has a strong capacity to adsorb the basic substance. The silica gel is most widely used in reversed-phase partition chromatography and it has broad applications that consist of the separation of steroids, amino acids, lipids, alkaloids, and several pharmaceutical processes.

Pharmaceutical Grade Silica Gel Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:
- Growing Demand for Medicinal Drugs
The growing pharmaceutical industry has propelled the growth of drug production, which has increased the consumption of silica gel over the years. The demand for silica gel is expected to increase further as chromatography can be performed using silica gel. Silica gel column chromatography is widely used in the pharmaceutical industry to collect or separate different drug components.
- Extensive Deployment of R&D in the Pharma Sector
The growing need for data integrity and automation has led to the integration of sophisticated software with contemporary chromatography systems. These advances in technology for the development of improved systems, innovative and disposable columns, better-performing resins, and other accessories may help the market to grow significantly.
- Rising Spending on Biotechnology using Chromatography for Detecting Molecular Components
Bioencapsulation involves the envelopment of tissues or biologically active substances in a semipermeable membrane to protect the enclosed biological structures such as cells, enzymes, drugs, and magnetic materials among others. The continuous research and development of silica gel based techniques like chromatography from the biotech end will lead to the growth of the Asia-Pacific pharmaceutical grade silica gel market.
- Lucrative Outlook Towards In-House R&D
Chromatography is a continuously evolving technique and an increase in the demand for chromatography instruments and reagents for research and development is a major factor driving the growth and demand for the Asia-Pacific pharmaceutical grade silica gel market.
- Easy Availability of Raw Materials through Well-Established Strategic Partners
The amorphous form of silicon dioxide is used to manufacture pharmaceutical-based silica gel. The enormous availability of different raw materials on the earth’s surface as well the ability to synthetically produce these raw materials along with the companies’ producing pharmaceutical grade silica gel well-established partnerships with various suppliers and partners, which continuously supply high-grade raw materials to these players for the production of silica gel.
- Stringent Regulations by the Government
USP's drug standards are enforceable in the U.S. by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and are also used in more than 140 countries across the globe. In the Pharmacy Act 1948 of India, there are various stringent regulations regarding the composition of drugs, which requires the pharmacists/chemists to follow various procedures and screening to get approved by the government. These stringent rules and regulations might be one of the biggest restraints faced by the Asia-Pacific pharmaceutical-grade silica gel market.
- The Availability of Substitutes
Free silanols on the surface of silica are responsible for detrimental interactions of those compounds and the stationary phase. These show bad peak shape and low efficiency. This has also inclined manufacturers to opt for substitutes present in the market. For these reasons, several new stationary phases such as non-silica stationary phases, which have reduced and/or shielded silanols, are being introduced into the market.
- Pharmaceutical Items Meet Stringent Quality Control and Performance Standards
Across the globe, every government allocates a substantial proportion of its total health budget to medicines and pharmaceutical items. In developing countries, considerable administrative and technical efforts are directed to ensure that the patients and consumers receive effective medicines of good quality without any compromise on the quality.
- Limited Application Scope to Non-Volatile Compounds
The temperature of the system using silica gel for volatile compounds needs to be maintained at lower levels so that the compound does not vaporize very fast and there is a total loss of the sample before it is utilized and separated by the silica gel plate. Therefore, the scope of silica gel’s application is limited to non-volatile compounds, which may challenge the growth of the Asia-Pacific pharmaceutical grade silica gel market.
- In February 2022, DuPont launched a new online sales portal for the needs of bioprocessing industry purchasers. DuPont bioprocessing enables sophisticated separations and purification for therapeutics, with different DuPont brands such as AmberChrom and AmberLite being very well established in the biopharma industry.
