Market Overview

The multiplex assays market will show rapid growth due to the rising prevalence of chronic diseases, growing adoption of personalized medicine, and a wide range of advantages of multiplex assays over traditional assays.

Personalized medicine aims to provide tailor-made therapies to individual patients depending on the molecular basis of the disease, which has become popular over recent years. Companion diagnostics are becoming an indispensable part of personalized medicine and are rapidly expanding, both in terms of number, and application in disease areas. In accordance with the current product pipeline, the rapid growth of companion diagnostics is likely in the foreseeable future. This expansion of companion diagnostics is also expected to have a significant effect on the development of the global multiplex assay market. Other factors which are contributing to the market growth include advantages of multiplex techniques, such as increased throughput. 

However, The high procurement and operational costs along with the cumbersome and complex nature of of multiplex assay instruments remain a significant hurdle that can hinder the market growth during the forecast period.

Scope of the report

Multiplex assays enable the detection of multiple analytes in a single cycle of the test. Multiplex assays are being utilized in different fields of life science, such as in functional genomics to detect the different types of biomolecules, such as proteins, and DNA simultaneously. In comparison to conventional assays, the multiplex techniques require a small amount of analytes and enable significant savings in costs and lab time.
