We are told that crime doesn't pay and that criminals will get their comeuppance but there is one sector of society that is profiting from crime. According to a new market analysis, one of the key reasons why the spectrometry market will continue to grow over the next 4 years is the rising use of spectrometric techniques in solving crime and in detecting explosives and illegal drugs. This is supported by sustained growth in other industries such as pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and foods and beverages.

The Transparency Market Research report predicts that the global spectrometry market will grow from US$10.2 billion to US$15.2 billion from 2011 to 2017, with North America retaining its position in providing the leading market share.

It examines the three areas of Atomic Spectroscopy (atomic absorption spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction spectroscopy, X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy, inductively coupled plasma, elemental analyzers and other types of atomic spectroscopy), Molecular Spectroscopy (global NMR market, global UV visualization, infrared, colour measurement, Raman and other types of molecular spectroscopy) and Mass Spectrometry (tandem LC/MS, liquid chromatography, gas chromatography, MALDI–TOF, Fourier transform and other types of mass spectrometry).
