Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Market Revenue to Double by 2026, on the back of Technological Advancements in Healthcare Industry

Technological advancements in molecular biology, life sciences, and biotechnology have brought paradigm shifts in healthcare diagnostics, drug discovery, personalized medicines, forensic sciences, and clinical research & development. Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) is an important breakthrough in this respect. PCR is an integral part of the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and life science industries for developing assays, test kits & solutions, and culture media in the tissue culture industry.

Thus, an increase in pharmaceutical R&D budgets by governments and private players is anticipated to boost growth prospects of the global polymerase chain reaction (PCR) market in the future. Also, rise in prevalence of chronic and infectious diseases is projected to push the demand for PCR solutions during the forecast period (2020-2026). The global PCR market is poised to expand nearly 2X and reach US$ 7.0 Bn by 2026-end.

Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Industries Emerge as Key End Users

Pharmaceutical and biotechnology Industries are poised to capture a major chunk of the global PCR market. Increasing test volumes and laboratory automation are projected to drive demand for PCR services in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.

Rising investments in R&D of genetic engineering and competition in the discovery of new drugs for diseases such as HIV-AIDS and cancer will also boost growth prospects. Adoption of PCR in pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries is anticipated to grow impressively at a CAGR of 8.6% in the forecast period.

The demand for PCR in clinical diagnostic labs and hospitals is forecast to surge at a significant rate. Increased awareness about molecular diagnostic applications of the PCR technique in cancer and HIV-AIDS detection, laboratory automation and high prevalence of infectious diseases are projected to boost the adoption of PCR solutions in clinical & diagnostic labs and hospitals during the forecast period. The segment is anticipated to record a CAGR of 8.8% through 2026.

COVID-19 Impact Assessment

With the number of coronavirus cases growing exponentially per day and no vaccine or drug across the horizon, healthcare providers have their hands full. In the wake of such rapidly increasing cases, the demand for testing kits has surged. In India, the number of tests for the detection of the COVID-19 exceeded the 4 million mark as of June 2020.

Testing capacity has been increased to 140,000 per day across more than 600 government and private laboratories during this period. Amongst all the testing mechanisms which are currently employed, PCR remains the most prevalent. The test is being extensively employed to detect the presence of the virus and to determine the degree of infection within the patient.

A high degree of accuracy and reliability of testing data is what makes the RT-PCR approach highly popular amongst medical practitioners to detect COVID-19 cases. The testing typically takes 4 to 8 hours while the results are delivered almost 24 hours after the testing has been conducted. Due to this time lag, healthcare settings are looking for alternative testing mechanisms capable of delivering the results in a shorter timeframe.

Nevertheless, the RT-PCR testing is projected to maintain an upward sloping curve until the time the pandemic is here to stay. Additionally, home testing kits are being rolled out to facilitate unfettered access to rapid and safe COVID-19 testing.

The Analyst’s Viewpoint

“Testing kit manufacturers are exploring multifarious ways to enhance the quality of RT-PCR tests, given the high degree of time-lag between the testing and results. Emphasis on maintaining the geometric amplification of the target gene is being stressed upon to deliver consistent results throughout the testing process, paving way for more accurate data.”
