Research and Markets
Posted on: 18 Oct 16

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Polymerase Chain Reaction Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.

PCR as a molecular genetics technique is used to amplify and analyze nucleic acids. It is a very precise, specific, and accurate technique that can amplify a specific DNA target from a mixture of DNA molecules. The technique is prevalently used in a broad range of applications in research and diagnosis including genetic engineering, cloning, genotyping, sequencing, and disease diagnosis.

The analysts forecast the global polymerase chain reaction (PCR) market to grow at a CAGR of 8.31% during the period 2016-2020.

The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global polymerase chain reaction (PCR) market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of the PCR consumables, and PCR instruments. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

Increasing number of M&A will be a key trend for market growth. M&As are intended to increase the global presence of vendors, expanding product portfolios and helping to attain economies of scale. Thermo Fisher Scientific acquired Life Technologies (a leading provider of life technology products) in February 2014. This acquisition is intended to strengthen Thermos Fisher's presence in life sciences, research, specialty diagnostics, and applied markets. Agilent Technologies acquired Dao in July 2012 and Accretion Technologies in February 2012.

Further, the report states that PCR instruments are often complex and require sophisticated software for various measurement procedures. Skilled handling becomes more important with technological advances in qPCR and dPCR, which are widely used by researchers in various applications such as genotyping, genomics and proteomics, copy number variation (CNV) detection, and gene expression.
