Digital PCR Market Overview

Digital polymerase chain reaction (dPCR) is used to divide a sample of DNA or cDNA. Growing governmental initiatives in implementing better molecular diagnostic methods in diseases diagnosis is anticipated to foster the growth of the dPCR market. The digital polymerase chain reaction (dPCR) market was valued at $278.9m in 2020 and is estimated to reach $819.5m by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 19.89% during the forecast period 2020–2025. Europe holds the largest share in the market followed by Asia-Pacific owing to the rising geriatric population in these regions. Asia-Pacific is projected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period owing to the rising R&D expenditure in the life sciences sector in various developing countries such as China and India.

Digital PCR Market Outlook

Digital polymerase chain reaction (dPCR), an advancement of traditional PCR, is used to detect and quantify DNA or a targeted part of DNA molecule. It distributes a sample of DNA or complementary DNA into many individual, parallel PCR reactions. It is used in various types of applications such as DNA cloning, diagnosis of hereditary diseases, functional analysis of genes, paternity testing, detection of infectious diseases, and forensic sciences. Its high precision, high tolerance to inhibitors, and high capacity to analyze complex combinations of DNA are some of the factors driving the dPCR market. The dPCR market is expected to grow globally due to the increase in number of infectious diseases and genetic disorders.

Digital PCR Market Growth Drivers

The growing demand for Digital PCR (dPCR) is due to the rapid technological advancements, increasing awareness about the benefits of early diagnosis of hereditary and infectious diseases, and growing demand for parental testing and gene study. The growing awareness among people regarding infectious diseases is significantly contributing to the growth of the digital PCR market. Technological improvements in medical applications is estimated to drive the dPCR market during the forecast period.

Digital PCR Market Challenges

Manufacturers need high initial costs in order to manufacture digital PCR system.
