Market Overview

The global flow cytometry market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 8.3% during the forecast period. The key factors propelling the market include the rise in the use of flow cytometry in stem cell research, the emergence and commercial application of new technologies in the field of flow cytometry, and rise in the applications of flow cytometry in clinical research.

There is a significance of flow cytometry in clinical research that is fueling the demand for flow cytometry techniques in R&D departments of the healthcare sector. The increasing incidences of HIV and cancer statistics show a significant unmet opportunity in cancer and AIDS diagnostics. There is a large void in diagnostics accessibility, particularly in the developing regions. Consequently, the increasing incidences of HIV AIDS and cancer can be considered a significant growth opportunity for the flow cytometry market.

Scope of the Report

Flow cytometry is a laser or an impedance-based technology, which is used in cell counting, detecting biomarker, cell sorting, and protein engineering, by suspending the cell in a stream of fluid and then passing them through a detection apparatus. It is the ideal tool to identify, characterize, and isolate stem and progenitor cells, for research and potential clinical use.

Key Market Trends

Stem Cell Therapy is Expected to Hold the Largest Market Share, by Application

The major factors responsible for the large market share include the extensive use of flow cytometry for effective diagnosis and early detection of numerous diseases that have helped the market to gain immense shares. There has been a growing market penetration in stem cell research, adoption of recombinant DNA technology for antibody production, and the evolution of tandem flow cytometry technologies that are expected to offer growth opportunities for the players operating in the flow cytometry market during the forecast period.

Though flow cytometry has also found many applications in several stages of drug discovery, its routine widespread use for high throughput drug screening has been limited. This is unlike analogous technology, automated high content imaging (HCI), which, in terms of drug screening, is an established technology that is common in screening laboratories.

North America Dominates the Market and is Expected to Continue its Lead over the Forecast Period

North America holds a major share of the flow cytometry market and is projected to continue over the next few years. In addition, there has also been a rise in the expansion of novel products that are anticipated to offer new growth opportunities in the coming years.

In the North America region, the united states hold the major share, this is mainly due to the factors such as the increase in the number of common cancers in the United States are breast cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer, colon and rectum cancer, bladder cancer, and skin cancer.

The role of flow cytometry as an aid in determining prognosis in patients with cancer has become increasingly important with the advent of assays for the detection of minimal residual disease and assessment of multiple drug resistance.

Companies, like Sysmex, in the United States are investing in R&D, hence the market is expanding at a faster pace.
