Isothermal Nucleic Acid Amplification Technology (INAAT) Market by Application (Infectious Diseases, Blood Screening, Research), Products (Instruments, Reagents), End-User (Hospital, Reference Laboratories, Other) - Global Forecast to 2018
The isothermal nucleic acid amplification technology (INAAT) market is poised to reach $1,651 million by 2018 at a CAGR of 13.5% during the forecast period. Though PCR technology dominates the nucleic acid amplification technology market currently, adoption of INAAT technology is expected to be significant in coming years as it offers better clinical results in detecting pathogens during point-of-care testing.
Amongst different products, reagent segment is expected to grow at a faster growth due to its increasing demand in reliable, specific and faster detection of chronic diseases and genetic disorders. On the other hand, infectious disease was found to be the highest revenue generating application segment of isothermal nucleic acid amplification technology (INAAT) market in 2013; it is also expected to grow at higher CAGR of 14.4% during the forecast period due to increasing prevalence of various infectious diseases such as HIV and hepatitis A & B and increasing adoption of INAAT in advanced detection of pathogens globally. Amongst different end-users, adoption of INAAT technologies in reference laboratories is expected to be significant due to increasing importance of advanced technologies in different complex molecular testing.
North America commanded the largest market share of about 44% in 2013; whereas, Asian INAAT market is expected to witness the highest CAGR. High prevalence rate of infectious diseases and significant adoption of novel technologies are the major driving factors in the Asian INAAT market. Leading players in the global INAAT market are also expected to address the unmet needs in emerging nations such as India, China, South Africa, Singapore, and Middle East among others.
