Global Electrophoresis Reagents Market 2017-2021
About Electrophoresis Reagents
Electrophoresis reagent is a substance used for testing the presence of another substance in a sample by creating a chemical reaction. Through the chemical reaction, electrophoresis reagents allow researchers to detect, measure, produce or change other substances. Electrophoresis reagents such as dyes, gels, and buffers are used for the detection and separation of macromolecules in DNA, RNA, and proteins.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global electrophoresis reagents market to grow at a CAGR of 6.43% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global electrophoresis reagents market for 2017-2021. The report presents a detailed picture of the market by way of study, synthesis, and summation of data from multiple sources.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Electrophoresis Reagents Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global electrophoresis reagents market: Bio-Rad Laboratories, Lonza, Merck Millipore, and Thermo Fisher Scientific.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Agilent Technologies, GE Healthcare, PerkinElmer, QIAGEN, SERVA Electrophoresis, and TAKARA BIO.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is increasing popularity of personalized medicine. Personalized medicine is the customization of medical treatment to meet the individual need of each patient. Personalized medicine is a multi-faceted method to patient care that not only improves the capacity to diagnose and treat diseases but offers the potential to identify a disease at an earlier stage when it is easier to treat it effectively.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing occurrence of genetic disorders and infectious diseases. There has been a rise in the occurrence of genetic disorders or conditions, infectious diseases, and cancer in the past. A genetic disorder is a disease that is instigated by an aberration in an individual's DNA. Aberrations can be as small as a single-base mutation in just one gene, or they can involve the reduction or addition of entire chromosomes. Examples of genetic disorders include cystic fibrosis, thalassemia, and sickle cell anemia. Cancer is one of the major health problems globally, and it is one of the leading causes of death. Cancer is a combination of diseases.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is lack of skilled professionals. The laboratory instrument industry is shifting from using large instruments to more advanced and miniature instruments; the technologies being used in these instruments are undergoing major changes and at a rapid pace. Keeping abreast with rapid technological changes as well as keeping a workforce with advanced technical skills is becoming a challenge for companies due to the high cost involved. The electrophoresis technique requires technical expertise as the right sample needs to be analyzed with the correct protocol, failing which incorrect results could be generated.
