Technavio Report Predicts qPCR Reagent Market To Be Boosted By Forensic Sciences Demand For qPCR
The latest market research report form Technavio on the global qPCR reagent market claims that there will be a growth of more than 7% CAGR from 2017-2021 in the market. the growth rate would be supported by rampant and increasing use of qPCR technique in multiple applications like food and agriculture, clinical research and forensics.
According to Technavio research analysts, the global qPCR reagent market would be driven by at least three emerging market trends. The enhanced use of qPCR for GM crops risk assessment and testing of food, reduction of human errors by the use of robotic qPCR and the tendency to use more of point-of-care testing (POCT) qPCR units would drive the future market.
The research report says that diseases caused by contaminated food results in an estimated death of over 4 million people each year. For the purpose of avoiding any contamination during the process of mass production and during food transportation, it is mandatory for manufacturers of packaged food to conduct food safety assessment. Therefore, analysis of samples in bulk is the way that the manufacturers control quality and determines the amount of pathogen content in the food products.
Enhancements in GM crops has been led by plant biotechnology development in technology innovation. GM crops have advantages compared to normal crops because they have inbuilt resistance to pesticide and enhanced immunity because of modified genes. However, the public is still skeptical towards adopting GM crops and their safety for use despite enhancement in crop productivity.
“qPCR is increasingly being used to provide a basic assessment of the quality of food that is served and to increase the adoption of GM crops. Development of GM crops is on the rise due to the advantages it offers over conventional crops. Thus, with the increase in the quantity of GM crops, the use of qPCR reagents in detection of the same is expected to increase,” says Hitesh Bhatia, a lead analyst at Technavio for lab equipment research.
“With robotic qPCR, sample loss and reagent loss due to dead volume can be avoided since there is maximum extraction from the pipette. Automated systems offer accurate results in less time using smaller amounts of reagents and sample. Thus, robotic qPCR is more robust which will contribute to the growth of the market during the forecast period,” says Hitesh.
Increasing trends in the use of qPCR in diagnostic centers is being driven by the effectiveness of qPCR in fast and easier diagnosis of infections and diseases. Less time is taken to generate reports when doctors make use of qPCR on the site and as a point-of-care (POC) access in diagnostic market.
A fast and personalized mode for diagnosis for patients in influenza is provided by molecular diagnostic testing. For example, easy and fast diagnosis a d infection control is now possible with the use of qPCR point-of-care assay called cobas Liat Influenza A/B assay designed and developed by Roche.
