Biochip, is a bio-microarray device used for analysis of large-scale genomics, proteomics, and functional genomics. It finds application in clinical research, diagnostics, drug development, toxicology studies, and patient selection for clinical trials.
The U.S. biochip products and services market is estimated to account for US$ 11,151.8 Mn in terms of value by the end of 2027.
U.S. Biochip Products and Services Market: Drivers
Approval and launch of new products is expected to propel growth of the U.S. biochip products and services market over the forecast period. For instance, in April 2019, AYOXXA Biosystems GmbH launched LUNARISTM Chemokine Kits for exploration of human (Human 11-Plex) and murine (Mouse-12-Plex) chemokine signaling pathways.
U.S. Biochip Products and Services Market: Opportunities
R&D in biochips is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for players in the U.S. biochip products and services market. For instance, in May 2020, researchers from Russian Academy of Sciences, Russia, reported development of 3D biochips and optimized analytical procedures that can facilitate further studies towards practical application for hepatitis C virus detection.
U.S. Biochip Products and Services Market: Restraints
Availability of alternative technologies such as mass spectrometry and polymerase chain reaction is expected to limit growth of the market. Technologies such as mass spectrometry and polymerase chain reaction can be used as substitutes to biochips. Mass spectrometry is used to determine and analyze spectra of a number of molecules present in the sample of any material. Polymerase chain reaction is the method of amplification of a single or a few copies of DNA obtained from any source.
