Market projections for flow cytometry from 2016-2020 compared to 2021-2031

According to Fact.MR, market research and competitive intelligence provider, from 2016 to 2020, the global market for flow cytometry has grown at a CAGR of almost 8% to reach US$ 4.7 Bn. Extensive uptake for pharmaceutical & drug discovery and diagnostics have typically influenced historical growth.

As the COVID-19 pandemic raged, pharmaceutical companies were intensively pooling their resources in order to develop potent drug and vaccine formulations, a trend which sustained market demand for flow cytometry throughout 2020. Researchers leveraged flow cytometry to characterize the type of T cells involved in the immune response to COVID-19.

Future expansion prospects will largely be driven by increasing scope of immunology and oncology research. Researchers are increasingly using flow cytometry to qualitatively and quantitatively analyze peripheral blood cells to predict immunotherapy outcomes. Based on these trends, Fact.MR expects the market to surge at a CAGR of 9% from 2021 to 2031.

How has COVID-19 Spurred Flow Cytometry Demand?

A global pandemic resulting from the spread of the acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus was seen all over the globe. The disease claimed more than 1.6 million lives globally in a year involving 71 million cases. There were cases reported by 220 countries, territories, and areas all over the world. The WHO emphasized the need to develop vaccines against the virus to the battle spread of the disease.

Researchers carried out PCR (RT-PCR) and blood antibody tests to detect COVID-19. Additionally, researchers developed another test procedure that played an important role in improving the COVID-19 testing capabilities, allowing countries to better combat SARS/COV-2. Flow cytometry was suggested as an alternative way to check for SARS-CoV-2 as new research.

The analysis of single cells or particles was carried out by flow cytometry across many different scientific disciplines. It involves exposing particles to lasers and measuring visible light scattering and or fluorescence parameters as a result. The testing facility was designed to process an estimated 2,000 tests per day using one set of equipment, providing an efficient, effective, and reliable method of testing.

A CAGR of 6% is expected for this segment.

Why is Pharmaceutical & Drug Discovery Prominent Flow Cytometry Utilizer?

Drug discovery and development is a very complex, lengthy, and expensive process. As a tool to identify and characterize drug-induced toxicity in animal models and cell culture systems, flow cytometry has been used for a drug safety assessment with multiple benefits for biomedical research.

Flow cytometry allows measurement of acute or subacute toxic effects, as well as the detection of cancerous, mutational, and cancer-causing effects in tissue samples or cultured cells. These devices are used in preparing single-cell suspensions of tissue samples in a homogeneous or dissociated state, which allows the study of preclinical toxicity of drugs on any tissue sample. A market share of 45% is projected for this segment.

Competitive Landscape

Strategic collaborations enable manufacturers to increase production and meet consumer demand which will increase revenue and market share. New products and technologies will enable end-users to benefit from products that are eco-friendly by nature.

  • On February 17th, 2021, Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. acquired the cell sorting technology assets of Propel Laboratories. As part of the agreement, Bigfoot Spectral, along with 40 employees, will be part of Thermo Fisher's Biosciences business. Propel Labs continues to operate separately and will remain focused on serving its existing customers.
  • On August 12th, 2021, bioAffinity Technologies announced the development of sputum processing and high-throughput analysis methods. JoVE (Journal of Visualized Experiments) provides a detailed description of a technique that can swiftly identify diseases such as COPD, asthma, and lung cancer in sputum using flow cytometry. Additionally, the firm developed CyPath, a technology platform to detect cancer.
