Sample Preparation Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2019 - 2024)
The global sample preparation market is expected to witness a CAGR of 6.8% over 2019-20234 (henceforth, the forecast period). Sample preparation remains one of the most significant challenges and bottlenecks in research, but it is crucial to the success of downstream applications. The sample quality that emerges from preparation tasks, like nucleic acid or protein isolation, as well as purification, pipetting, and other liquid-handling requirements, can significantly impact the accuracy of research.
If not performed properly, they can impair entire projects and cost laboratories thousands of dollars in having to duplicate work, yet waste precious samples that cannot be restored. Given the higher scrutiny on research data accuracy, stricter quality standards in applied markets, like clinical testing, forensics, and food and beverage testing, and a greater focus on laboratory efficiency, the labs continue to move toward automated sample preparation methods.
In response, instruments for automated nucleic acid purification and isolation (NAPI), liquid handling, and library preparation for next-generation sequencing (NGS) are gaining popularity. In addition to delivering higher-quality prepared samples, advantages of these systems over manual tasks include the reduction of human error, the significantly less hands-on time required, speed, increased throughput, reproducibility, reliability, and increased laboratory efficiency.

Key Market Trends
Genomics Segment is Expected to Exhibit the Fastest Growth Rate over the Forecast Period
Sample preparation in genomic analysis encompasses end fragment repair of the damaged nucleic acid, purification of the nucleic acids, and enrichment of the sample nucleic acid, by employing polymerase chain reaction (PCR) techniques. DNA and RNA sample preparation is one of the most important aspects of optimization of the quality and quantity of nucleic acid material, for next generation sequencing. As sample preparation is a series of coordinated reactions, each step must be as efficient as possible to maximize yield, while simultaneously maintaining convenience and cost effectiveness. The efficiency of end repair, DNA tailing, ligation, and amplification is dependent on the purity of the enzymes that perform these steps.
There are specialized vendors, such as BioLabs Inc.and RTLGenomics, in the sample preparation market, which address the aforementioned requirements. Hence, the application of sample preparation in genomics is poised to experience accelerated growth, over the forecast period.
North America Captured the Largest Market Share and is Expected to Retain its Dominance
North America dominated the overall sample preparation market, with the United States being the major contributor to the market. The United States is the largest market for biopharmaceuticals, accounting for around a third of the global market, and is the world leader in biopharmaceutical R&D. According to the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers Association (PhRMA), US firms conduct over half of the world's R&D in pharmaceuticals, and hold the intellectual property rights on most new medicines. Increasing number of pharmaceutical companies are driving the growth of the sample preparation market, in the United States. Thus, the market is experiencing a stable growth in the region, and may flourish in the future.
Rising number of market players are intensifying the competition. Players, such as Agilent Technologies, Bio-Rad Laboratories, Danaher Corporation, Merck Millipore, and Illumnia, among others, are disrupting the market by launching several new products. There is intense rivalry among global vendors in the sample preparation market. Major vendors are competing against each other by expanding their product portfolios, either through in-house R&D or through technological acquisition from an acquired company.
