Market Overview

The Digital PCR market is projected to register a CAGR of nearly 17.8% over the forecast period. The major factor attributing to the growth of the market is the rising diagnostics and screening tests of diseases like cancer, hereditary, and infectious diseases, and the growing demand for parental testing and gene study. As per GLOBOCAN, the number of leukemia cases in the year 2018 was around 437,033. As the incidence of such diseases increases, the usage of the Digital PCR increases and thus the market growth. Furthermore, technological advancements in the field of biotechnology and the increasing funding toward the same are boosting the market growth. However, the high cost of the instruments and the lack of skilled labor is the major drawback for the digital PCR market growth.

Scope of the Report

Digital PCR is an advancement of traditional PCR which is used to detect and quantify DNA or a targeted part of DNA molecule. It dispenses a sample of DNA or complementary DNA into many individual, parallel PCR reactions. It is used in various types of applications, such as DNA cloning, diagnosis of hereditary diseases, functional analysis of genes, paternity testing, detection of infectious diseases, and forensic sciences.

Key Market Trends

Droplet Digital PCR Segment to Dominate the Market Globally

Droplet digital PCR (ddPCR) is a method for performing digital PCR that is based on water-oil emulsion droplet technology. A sample is fractionated into 20,000 droplets, and PCR amplification of the template molecules occur in each droplet. The ddPCR technology uses reagents and workflows similar to those used for most standard TaqMan probe-based assays. The massive sample partitioning is a key aspect of the ddPCR technique. Apart from the above-mentioned advantages of the ddPCR, factors that are propelling the segment growth are increasing prevalence of cancer, infectious diseases, and increasing funding and advancements of the biotechnology sector.
