Global digital PCR market is likely to exhibit a promising growth curve as far as the short-term outlook is considered. The report will uncover the insights into how the market growth will unfold in the next few years.

Severing Need for More Efficient Molecular Diagnostic Tools Drives Digital PCR Market

The digital PCR market is expected to rise due to various important causes, including the growing use of digital polymerase chain reaction (dPCR) technique across forensic and research laboratories and the rising demand for advanced diagnostics. The need for prenatal genetic testing techniques is predicted to increase as people become more aware of hereditary diseases such as cystic fibrosis, hemophilia, and thalassemia. Using qPCR and dPCR techniques, fetal DNA present in the mother's blood or the amniotic fluid during the early stages of pregnancy can be examined to find genetic problems before delivery. Then, potential genetic abnormalities and fetuses with defective genes can be treated during the early stages of pregnancy. During the forecast period, the prevalence of infectious and chronic diseases, and genetic disorders is anticipated to rise. The CDC estimates that seven in 10 deaths in the United States occur due to chronic diseases like cancer, diabetes, chronic renal, and respiratory illnesses like asthma. In addition, the prevalence of the congenital cardiac disease is rising, necessitating medical professionals' search for molecular diagnostic tools to make reliable diagnoses. As a result, during the projection period, there will be greater demand for new molecular diagnostic tests due to the rising prevalence of diseases.

Additionally, the introduction of novel technologies and an increase in the number of contract research companies are projected to propel the growth digital PCR market throughout the projection period. The utilization of PCR tests in clinical diagnostics is anticipated to rise as technology improves their sensitivity, accuracy, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness. Furthermore, major industry participants are creating portable, quick, and simple-to-use equipment for use in point-of-care settings. For instance, QuantuMDx announced the introduction of the Q-POC system in July 2021. This system enables quick POC molecular diagnostics that are useful for settings including ICUs, clinics, and birthing facilities. Moreover, many POC polymerase chain reaction diagnostics for detecting COVID-19 disease have been approved in the previous two years.

Digital PCR Market: COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the healthcare sector. The diagnostic sector was the most severely affected by the exponential market growth. Digital and real-time PCR have attracted a lot of interest due to their drug development and diagnostics usage. To detect COVID-19, industry providers are concentrating more on developing droplet digital PCR kits. Additionally, many industry participants have developed fresh tools and tests for COVID-19 testing. In September 2020, the SARS-CoV-2 ddPCR Kit from Bio-Rad received Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the U.S. FDA to be used to detect SARS-CoV-2 infection. To lessen the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak, regulatory bodies have also stated their strong support for the approval of these tests. It will therefore spur digital PCR market expansion.

Global Digital PCR Market to Gain from Growing Awareness and Acceptance of Personalized Medicines

According to the Individualized Medicine Coalition, there are far more personalized treatments than in 2008, when there were only five such medications (PMC). There are currently more than 145 personalized therapies on the digital PCR market due to growing awareness and acceptance of customized medicines. Additionally, the number of tailored medicines is growing due to the FDA quickly approving new diagnostic procedures and medical procedures that can deliver more effective and efficient healthcare. Diagnostic tests can assist in choosing the most effective course of treatment for each patient.

Perceived Advantages over Conventional RT PCR Strengthen the Case for Digital PCR Market

Instead of the relative measurement obtained from real-time devices, digital polymerase chain reaction helps to offer a comprehensive measure of the target nucleic acid molecules. With the reproducibility, sensitivity, and precision provided by this absolute DNA quantification, researchers can properly assess minor mutations and quantify smaller differences. With the numerous types of genomes in the virus and the extremely low template concentration in the sample, the real-time device chain reaction is not a preferred technique for detecting various parasitic infectious diseases, such as malaria and COVID-19, despite its widespread application. Digital droplet technologies get around these problems and produce precise results with improved group comparisons. These digital devices' numerous advantages over real-time devices are anticipated to support market expansion during the projected period.

High Costs of Digital PCR Devices to Impede Rapid Expansion of Digital PCR Market

Although the digital PCR instrument has many benefits for research applications, its expensive cost deters users from buying it a manual digital PCR instrument costs between US$65,000 and 70,000, but an automated digital PCR device costs US$100,000. Real-time PCR is more expensive than competing methods, costing between US$20,000 and US$30,000. Real-time PCR is much sought after in applications like genotyping and gene expression analysis since it is less expensive than digital PCR, even though dPCR technology is improving. As a result, the high price of digital PCR is stifling the growth digital PCR and leading to a sharp fall in the market.

Clinics to Dominate Digital PCR Market with Better In-patient Treatment Options

In the forecast period, the clinical category had the highest revenue share. This can be attributed to several things, including the rising incidence of diseases like cancer, infectious diseases, and diabetes, high testing precision, increased commercialization of diagnostic reagents, effective disease diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment, and additional advantages in disease detection. There are tests for genetics, infectious disorders, cancer, transplantation, and other conditions that involve nucleic acid amplification under the clinical area. The segment for clinical diagnostics is constantly expanding. This category contributes to a sizable share in digital PCR market thanks to the emergence of molecular diagnostics and disease-specific treatments employed in many hospitals and clinics worldwide.

With Growing Prevalence of Chronic Diseases, Consumables Continue to Lead Digital PCR Market

The consumables and reagents category led the digital PCR market with a major revenue share. It is anticipated that it will continue to dominate during the forecast period. The rising prevalence of infectious and chronic diseases, the rising demand for consumables and reagents used in various diagnostic assay types, and an increase in product introductions all contribute to the segment's growth. Additionally, the substantial segment share is supported by the widespread use of consumables and reagents and the rising demand for healthcare, research, and other uses. Furthermore, it is predicted that the segment will continue to lead during the forecast period. The growing acceptance of technological breakthroughs in the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors and enhanced research and development would create considerable potential for this market during the expected decade.

North America a Major Revenue Contributor to Global Digital PCR Market

The North American digital PCR market is anticipated to grow at a strong growth rate throughout the forecast period. The population is growing because it is well-informed and steady economically. In addition, it is anticipated that the region will adopt increasingly expensive and technologically sophisticated diagnostics during the projected period. The high prevalence of diseases, the presence of important players in the region, the existence of favorable regulations and numerous initiatives regarding improvements in healthcare infrastructure undertaken by the government, and these factors, all contribute to the growth of the regional market. Another aspect influencing the rise is the increasing patient awareness of the accessibility of contemporary products for successful diagnosis.
