Real-time PCR (qPCR) and Digital PCR (dPCR) Market 2017: Key Players are Thermo Fisher, Bio-Rad Labs, Qiagen, Abbott & Cepheid - Research and Markets

Research and Markets
Posted on: 06 Oct 17

The "Real-time PCR (qPCR) andDigital PCR (dPCR) Market Analysis by Technology, by Product (Consumables & Reagents, Instruments, Software & Services), by Application and Segment Forecasts, 2014 - 2025" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

The global real time PCR (qPCR) and digital PCR (dPCR) market is expected to reach USD 6.3 billion by 2025. Implementation of Minimum Information for Publication of Quantitative Real-Time PCR Experiments (MIQE) and Real-time PCR Data Markup Language (RDML) guidelines that ensure high-quality results is estimated to provide the market with high growth opportunities.

In addition, increasing number of research & forensic laboratories and CROs is a key factor responsible for market growth. Laboratories and CROs use qPCR and dPCR techniques for gene-based, protein-based, and various other research applications owing to its high accuracy and sensitivity.

Increasing preference of PCR techniques in prenatal genetic testing and its associated advantages in prenatal genetic testing such as lack of need for reference standards, low cycle times, and reproducible results are some of the drivers expected to propel growth.

Furthermore, major players are in the process of acquiring companies manufacturing diagnostic devices for the development of technologically advanced qPCR and dPCR products. For instance, Bio-Rad laboratories acquired RainDance Technologies to strengthen their position in the area of digital PCR.

  • Some of the key players including Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc.; Bio-Rad Laboratories; QIAGEN; Abbott; and Cepheid dominated the global qPCR and dPCR market in 2016.
