Research and Markets: Global Cellular Imaging Market (Single Cell Analysis/Live Cell Imaging) Report 2014
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/qhpmlp/cellular_imaging)
has announced the addition of the "Cellular
Imaging Market (single cell analysis/Live cell imaging)" report
to their offering.
Single cell analysis plays an important role in genomics, proteomics,
transcriptomics and epigenomics at the single cell level. It provides an
ultra-sensitive tool to explicate specific molecular mechanisms and
pathways and reveal the nature of cell heterogenecity. Hospitals,
academic and government bodies, as well as pharmaceutical and
biotechnology companies are mounting their focus on using cell analysis
as a prevailing tool in research, drug discovery and diagnosis. The cell
analysis market is mainly segmented into consumables and instruments.
The consumables include reagents, assay plates and microplates. The
instrument segment comprises of microscopes, flow cytometer,
spectrophotometer, quantitative polymerase chain reaction (QPCR),
microfluidic devices, cell counters, high content screening (HCS)
systems and cell microarrays.
Among the cell analysis products, the consumables market dominated the
instruments market by occupying a largest shre of more than 60%.
However, the cell analysis instruments market is expected to grow at the
highest CAGR. Geographical wise North America is the largest market,
followed by Europe and Asia. The APAC regions suggest an array of
opportunities for growth and are likely to be getting into the eyes of
new investors in the cell analysis market. Growth in the Asian market is
attributed to government for its support in establishing innovative
screening technologies and increasing demand for outsourcing of drug
The cell analysis market is expected to grow steadily in the forecast
period. The major factor driving the growth is improved accuracy of cell
imaging and analysis systems which in turn reduce time and cost of drug
discovery process. In addition, the factors like increasing prevalence
of cancer, getting help from the government bodies in the form of
investments, funds and grants, improved informatics services,
availability of better reagents and image analysis instruments are
propelling the growth of the market. However, the major market
restraints include enormous capital investments and shortage of skilled
labor for high content screening procedure. The biggest opportunities
for this market is the growing APAC market, high content screening
services provided by CRO's, automation in cancer research for its early
detection and reducing cost of the cancer treatment.
The global cell analysis market is a highly competitive market and all
the existing players in this market are involved in developing new and
advanced products to maintain their market shares.
