Key Challenges to Flow Cytometry Industry Expansion

High Cost & Lack of Awareness Act as a Prominent Restraining Factor

Increasing prevalence rates of chronic diseases such as cancer and HIV are expected to boost the acceptance of flow cytometry technology across diagnostic applications. On the other hand, factors such as expensive costs associated with instruments and reagents, lack of awareness amongst potential end-users, and the inadequate availability of technical expertise are expected to obstruct the flow cytometry market growth.

Country-wise Analysis

How Opportunistic are Growth Prospects across the U.S Market?

North America Witnessed Highest Rev up in Sales Revenue in 2022

Fact.MR’s latest analytical report reveals that the North American region dominates the flow cytometry market and accounts for nearly 1/3rd contribution in the global revenue. As per the report, the U.S market is projected to yield a dollar opportunity of US$ 10.2 Billion, following a CAGR of 8.1% throughout the forecast period. A high level of demand exists in North American markets for flow cytometry devices.

Rapid technological advancements have contributed to an increase in market valuation. As chronic diseases are becoming more prevalent, research and technology in cell sorting have increased the demand for flow cytometry in these markets. For instance, Sysmex Corporation launched flow cytometry XF-1600 in North American markets. On June 17th, 2020, the firm launched the PS-10 sample preparation system that automates sample preparation and offers a range of analyte-specific options through Sysmex in the US.

The growing understanding of immunologic forces regulating systemic diseases, as well as the development of molecular diagnostics, monoclonal antibodies, lasers, and IT, will have a profound impact on flow cytometry and hematology in the North American markets.

Why are Flow Cytometry Providers Venturing into China?

APAC Region Registers the Fastest Growth Rate in Flow Cytometry Industry

Asia promises to exhibit a robust expansion trajectory, clocking a staggering 14% CAGR from 2022 to 2032. Fact.MR forecasts that the valuation for the flow cytometry market is likely to reach US$ 3.9 Billion by 2032 end. Improvements in healthcare infrastructure, particularly across India and China, are prompting global pharmaceutical companies to invest in the regional flow cytometry industry.

Furthermore, surging incidences of hematological and immunological diseases are also widening growth prospects. A study published in 2019 established those autoimmune diseases incidence has increased manifold, with 75% of those affected being women. Hence, flow cytometry to prevent further deterioration is inclining across the region.

Which Type of Product & Services is Most Preferred in the Flow Cytometry Market?

Flow Cytometry Software Have Gained Huge Traction in Recent Years

In terms of market revenue, the Flow cytometry software & services segment contributes over 40% share of the global revenue collection. The demand for flow cytometry software is forecast to expand at an annual rate of 6% throughout the conjecture period.

As technology advances, the demand for software is on the rise in the medical industry. The increasing demand for advanced software that can be used with these devices is due to the increasing desire to view the cells and examine them simultaneously during the analysis.

For instance, NovoExpress Software enables scientists of all experience levels to acquire and analyze data efficiently. By automating many fluidic functions, the software eliminates time-sucking and cumbersome procedures. This software is flexible, intuitive, and versatile in nature.

By Application, which Flow Cytometry is expected to Dominate?

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 the preclinical toxicity of drugs on any tissue sample. Fact.MR predicts that a market share of 45% is projected for this segment.
