Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is extensively used for DNA amplification technique. It generates thousands to millions of copies of a particular DNA sequence. The PCR industry is shifting its focus away from macro-scale systems and is focused on developing the micro-scale devices. Micro-scale devices offer various benefits such as micro-scale sample sizes requires less blood from patients, it takes less reaction time and also offers cost-effective benefits, as many microfluidic devices are manufactured from inexpensive polymers. Increasing adoption of polymerase chain reaction in various diagnostic and research application, growing research and development funding in gene therapy, and continuous technological advancement in polymerase chain reaction are expected to drive growth of the market over the forecast period. Rapid technological advancement in the polymerase chain reaction to deliver highly sensitive and optimized detection instrument, increasing prevalence of chronic and infectious disease, and growing research funding in gene therapy and molecular testing is expected to drive growth of the global polymerase chain reaction market over the forecast period.
The global polymerase chain reaction market is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period, owing to its wide and increasing applications in various fields, which include diagnosis of infectious diseases, such as middle ear infections, tuberculosis, Lyme disease, in forensics, including DNA fingerprinting, paternity testing and in various other molecular research applications, such as DNA sequencing, DNA cloning, and gene expression. Polymerase chain reaction is used for diagnosis of genetic disease, allowing to detect inherited genetic change or spontaneous genetic mutation.
PCR is used in personalized medicine to help patients in selecting certain treatments, such as in cancer when patients have a genetic change that makes a patient more or less likely to respond to a certain treatment. Polymerase chain reaction is used to study the molecular characteristics in cancer patients, in order to deliver tailored cancer therapy in lung and colorectal cancer. Real-time PCR offers higher sensitivity and specificity in various range of nucleic acid amplification, which is used in wide research areas including infectious disease research, translational medicine to applied biology. Furthermore, technological advancement in the PCR reagents, assay, instruments and analysis tools, help to provide more customized results in various research areas, such as stem cell research, oncology and genetic disease research, pharmaceutical analytics, pharmacogenomics, plant science research and agriculture biotechnology. Such wide numbers of PCR applications in the different field of healthcare and medical research areas, are expected to drive growth of the global polymerase chain reaction market over the forecast period.
