Microplate Reader Market Outlook and Business Opportunities 2020-2027 - BMG Labtech, Hercuvan Lab Systems, Molecular Devices

The microplate reader market was valued at US$ 534.5 million in 2019 and is projected to reach US$ 704.4 million by 2027; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.6%from 2020 to 2027.

A microplate consists of small wells wherein separate reactions take place. A microplate reader is laboratory machine used for the estimation of biochemical or physical reactions, properties, and analytes within the microplate wells. It detects signals and quantifies the parameter of interest. The use of readers reduces operational time and saves reagent costs, allowing researchers to commit more time to analyze data analysis and derive actionable insights. The growth of microplate reader market is attributed to increasing research and development activities in the pharmaceuticals industry, and elevating incidence of infectious diseases. However, the high cost of advanced microplate readers is a major factor hindering the market growth.

Microplate Reader Market: Competition Landscape & Key Developments

Biotek Instruments, Inc.; Hercuvan Lab Systems; Molecular Devices, Llc; Thermo Fisher Scientific; Bmg Labtech; Promega Corporation; Perkinelmer Inc; Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc.; Tecan Trading Ag; and Lonza are key companies operating in the microplate reader market. The market leaders are continuously looking forward to expanding and diversifying their market presence and reaching out to new customers, thus tapping prevailing business opportunities.

In 2019, North America dominated microplate reader market with more than one-third revenue share. The increase in the demand for advanced and quick processing technologies by biopharmaceutical and biotechnology companies; presence of key market players and their increasing number of product lunches; extensively expanding research activities in various fields of life sciences, such as genomic and proteomics research and drug discovery; and rise in clinical diagnostics conducted by various academic and research institutes are the prime factors contributing to the market growth in this region.

Increasing Research and Development in Pharmaceuticals Industry Fuel Microplate Reader Market Growth

Pharmaceuticals R&D is gaining traction worldwide owing to the rising focus on drug discovery. The US biopharmaceutical industry has been the forefront of the development of new therapeutics worldwide. As per the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), the biopharmaceutical industry invested US$ 83 billion in R&D in 2019. The increasing demand for new and advanced approaches in drug discovery is bolstering the adoption of microplate readers. Various companies are developing microplate readers for the drug discovery process to make the research easier and faster. For instance, BioTek Instruments, Inc. offers Synergy HT, a unique multi-detection microplate reader, for high-throughput screening (HTS) and drug discovery. Moreover, pharmaceutical companies are investing heavily in the drug discovery, gene sequencing, and targeted protein development to meet the growing demands of the healthcare sector. Understanding the protein–drug interactions is a crucial and vital parameter in drug discovery.

Further, the rise in personalized medicine development activities is propelling the demand for genetic studies, which, in turn is likely to contribute to the growth of the microplate reader market. The field of precision medicine requires genomic information of every individual to offer targeted treatment for a particular indication. The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases has increased the demand for biologics, orphan disease drugs, and personalized medicines. For instance, in 2019, the FDA approved 12 personalized medications to address the root cause of disease and integrate precision medicines with clinical care. Thus, increasing government efforts are strengthening personalized medicine research activities.

Microplate Reader Market: Segmental Overview

On the basis of type, the microplate reader market is segmented into single-mode microplate readers and multi-mode microplate readers. The single-mode microplate readers segment held a larger market share in 2019, while the multi-mode microplate readers segment is anticipated to register a higher CAGR in the market during the forecast period. The market share of multi-mode microplate readers segment is estimated to increase exponentially in the coming years owing to their ability to detect two or more applications. Most of the microplate readers can be upgraded to powerful multi-mode microplate readers, on demand. Moreover, the multi-mode microplate readers allow supplementary detection modes, reagent injectors, and other features to be upgraded at any time.

On the basis of application, the microplate reader market is segmented into genomics and proteomics research, drug discovery, clinical diagnostics, and other applications. The drug discovery segment held the largest market share in 2019; however, the clinical diagnostics segment is anticipated to register the highest CAGR in the market during the forecast period. The projected growth of the market for clinical diagnostics segment is mainly attributed to the fact that microplate readers offers a broad portfolio of genetic tests with well-known applications such as non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT), hereditary cancer screening, cardiovascular disease predisposition testing, rare diseases diagnosis, and personalized medicine applications, further allowing patients and their care providers to select individualized treatment based on their genetic and metabolic profiles.

On the basis of end user, the microplate reader market is segmented into hospital and diagnostic laboratories, biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies, and research and academic institutes. The biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies segment held the largest share of the market in 2019, and it is further expected to register fastest CAGR during the forecast period. The future growth of the market for this  segment is ascribed to the ability of microplate readers to improve the laboratory processes in pharmaceutical industries by utilizing applications that detect samples in seconds. Moreover, along with the increased detection speeds, the upgradable choices are automated for more effortless operation and workflow.
