This market research study identifies Agilent Technologies, Bio-Rad Laboratories, QIAGEN, and Thermo Fisher Scientific as the leading players in the global qPCR market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by application (drug discovery and development, clinical diagnostics, research laboratories, and others) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global qPCR market

According to Technavio’s market research report, the global qPCR market will grow at a CAGR of close to 8% during the forecast period. One of the key drivers stimulating the growth of this global market during the next few years will be the increasing demand for new drugs. The number of chronic diseases such as cancer is expected to rise by about 70% over the next two decades due to factors such as the increasing urbanization, sedentary lifestyle, and unbalanced diet. Around 20% of the global cancer deaths and around 70% of global lung cancer deaths are caused by the consumption of tobacco and alcohol. Also, the prevalence of autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, polymyalgia rheumatic, and Crohn's disease is increasing. This will drive the demand for new drugs and clinical researches. Many research applications are carried out using advanced equipment such as quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR). The qPCR analysis technology provides valuable quantitative data analysis of nucleic acids as it is highly specific, sensitive, and accurate. Consequently, demand for qPCR for research as well as testing and diagnostic purposes will increase during the estimated period.

The increasing number of outsourcing activities acts as one of the key trends responsible for the growth in the qPCR market. The outsourcing of research and drug discovery and the development of contract research organization (CROs) by drug manufacturing and biotechnology companies helps vendors to reduce their expenditure on research and developmental activities. This drives the demand for qPCR technologies because CROs highly rely on this technology to develop products and conduct clinical trials.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The qPCR market is highly fragmented due to the presence of many international and regional players in many countries. The increasing number of applications in the field of medical, diagnosis of infectious diseases, and forensics for various purposes will open growth opportunities for these vendors. These players are increasingly adopting mergers and acquisitions to increase their investment in research and developmental activities. Furthermore, vendors are also focusing on offering solutions with features such as consistent quality of data, sensitivity, high-throughput ability, ease of use, multiplexing capacity, and service and support.

Key vendors in this market are -

  • Agilent Technologies
  • Bio-Rad Laboratories
  • Thermo Fisher Scientific

Other prominent vendors in the market include altona Diagnostics, Cepheid, Roche Diagnostics, Promega, and TATAA Biocenter.

Segmentation by application and analysis of the qPCR market

  • Drug discovery and development
  • Clinical diagnostics
  • Research laboratories

The drug discovery and development segment contributed to the maximum market shares during 2016. This was mainly due to the rising number of pharmaceutical companies and the demand for new drug development. The need for drug discovery and development is increasing due to the outbreak of various unknown diseases in different parts of the world. This has driven the number of pharmaceutical companies on a global level. The segment will continue to account for the largest shares during the predicted period as well since qPCR technology is widely used in various stages of drug discovery such as the study of gene expression, gene profiling, genotyping, and analysis of DNA methylation. 

Segmentation by geography and analysis of the qPCR market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

Owing to the presence of developed healthcare infrastructure and many pharmaceutical companies in countries such as the US, the Americas accounted for the majority shares of the qPCR market during 2016. The rise in number of tests related to the development of new drugs and disease diagnosis that requires qPCR techniques and this will turn, fuel the demand for qPCR in this region during the next four years.
