Protein biochips and LOACs have found widespread use for single nucleotide polymorphism genotyping, gene expression, in vitro diagnosis, expression profiling, drug discovery, high throughput screening and tissue arrays. The commercialization of the products in the development pipelines of key market participants is also key towards the potential to drive the growth for the market. Sophisticated robotic tools are needed for scanning and handling samples which are in microscale. Furthermore, for efficient data analysis efficient bioinformatics system is required. Therefore, this will increase the need for specific techniques and system which is expected to increase the demand for biochips used in sophisticated machines. This will consequently increase the price of the biochips and widen the offered product range in the market. Regional Insights North-America accounted for the largest revenue share owing to the presence of government policies motivating personalized care for the patients and availability of proteomics and genetic profiling infrastructure across the country, especially in the U.S. There has also been a rise in the usage of NGS (Next Generation Sequencing) for molecular treatment and clinical diagnosis coupled with microfluidic techniques that add to the large market share.
The Asia Pacific region is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecasted period. Reasons contributing towards the fastest growth in the market are – increase spending by the government in order to improve healthcare and R&D infrastructure in the areas of proteomics, genomics and NGS (next generation sequencing). There has also been growing awareness in the growth market for early and effective diagnosis which will further increase the growth in the market. Competitive Insights Key players in the development & commercialization of biochips include PerkinElmer, Inc.; Abbott Laboratories; Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc.; Fluidigm Corporation; Sigma-Aldrich Corporation; Agilent Technologies, Inc.; Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. and GE Healthcare. In order to establish themselves in the untapped market, companies are following various strategies including mergers & acquisitions, collaboration, vertical and horizontal integration in regions/countries where they can see potential growth. For example, PerkinElmer has successfully taken over Vanadis diagnostics which undergoes cell free DNA-based noninvasive prenatal testing (NIPT) on the digital platform. This has extended PerkinElmer’s portfolio. Similar strategies by other companies is expected to influence the market positively which will also bring competitiveness in the market.
