The Anderson Cascade Impactor (ACI) is the most frequently used impactor in the pharmaceutical corporation for the examination of inhaled products. A general Anderson cascade impactor works on with the convention of separating particles according to their size and velocity. Firstly, the particles are administered through an open nozzle where they are collected and then are passed through a series of discs designed to collect solids and different particulate matter. The human respiratory tract is a similar classification to the Anderson cascade impactor for inhaling particles as the deposition of particles in each of the Anderson cascade impactor mesh stages resembles the deposition pattern in various regions of the human lung. The Anderson cascade impactor holds eight of such mesh discs and is the most frequently used cascade impactor in the overall cascade impactor market.
Anderson Cascade Impactor Market Dynamics
Inhalation product development is of considerable requirement to the pharmaceutical industry for developing treatment by delivering systemic drugs through the pulmonary route. Thus the industry is responding by investing heavily in both formulation and device research in the Anderson cascade impactor market as Asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) are becoming increasingly common and there is a growing reputation for Anderson cascade impactors and this becomes the markets best positive driving effect.
While there are a lot of advantages offered by Anderson cascade impactors compared with all alternative methods, Anderson cascade impactors are bulky and not too portable to be used easily in an industrial setting and the disc membrane provided by Tapered Element Oscillating Membrane (TEOM) does not provide any size information. Such factors are drawing back industrials from effectively suing Anderson cascade impactors which is eventually harming the overall cascade impactor market.
Anderson Cascade Impactor Market Segmentation
The Anderson cascade impactor market can be segmented on the basis on the amount of mesh disc stage units, particle bounce on layers, sample collection region and economic regions. On the basis of mesh disc units, the Anderson cascade market can be segmented into Anderson six stage impactor, Compact Cascade Impactor (CCI) five stage and the Compact Cascade impactor six stage. On the basis of particle bounce, the Anderson Cascade impactor market is classified into using sticky surfaces, sampling at high humidity, using a porous substrate and using a virtual impactor. The Anderson cascade impactor market segmented on the basis of sample collection filters falls into two categories, ground based and airborne. Typically two stage filter packs with nucleopore filters are used to collect sub and super micron particles for analysis by electron microscopy and other samples collected on Quartz filters can also be analysed for metals and organics respectively. On the basis of geography, the Anderson cascade market is predominantly available in developed regions such as United Sates, Norway, Denmark, Singapore and the Neatherlands.
Anderson Cascade Impactor Market Regional Overview
The United States majors in the Anderson cascade impactor demand and supply chain due to its influences in the pharmaceutical market both in consumption and development with a medical spending expected to increase by 5% every year from 2018 to 2028 to reach about $5.8 trillion. The Anderson cascade impactor market in the European regions such as Switzerland, France and the UK is extensive and is expected to grow by 25% as Europe is known for its innovation and many products in the research and development stages. The regions where the Anderson cascade impactor market is minimal as of the prevailing developing situation would be in Canada, India, China, Mexico.
