Global Molecular Biology Enzymes, Reagents and Kits Market (2020 to 2027) - Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report - ResearchAndMarkets.com

·4 min read

The "Molecular Biology Enzymes, Reagents and Kits Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Product, by Application (Restriction Digestion, Sequencing, Cloning), by End-use, by Region, and Segment Forecasts, 2020 - 2027" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global molecular biology enzymes, reagents and kits market size is expected to reach USD 29.3 billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 11.0%.

The molecular biology field holds great potential to advance the medical treatments based on increasing scientific knowledge of cellular processes coupled with improving access to proteomics and genomics data. Personal genome sequencing is also expected to gain traction in the development of tailored diagnostics for each patient. A confluence of these factors drives the demand for molecular biology enzymes, reagents, and kits in the expansion of advanced personalized treatments.

Market players are engaged in constant product launches to enhance the efficiency of existing techniques and generate molecular information more easily, rapidly, and accurately. For instance, in June 2020, PCR Biosystems introduced a 4x RT-qPCR kit, qPCRBIO Probe 1-Step Virus Detect, designed for high-throughput, ultra-sensitive detection of viral RNA sequences, such as coronavirus. This new kit is proven to offer successful research in diagnostic projects.

Besides, synthetic biology is a rapidly advancing biotechnology field, which applies robust, innovative methods for drug manufacturing, cell therapies, and clinical diagnostics. Funding initiatives in this field expand its applications, which boost the usage of molecular biology products in these applications. As per SynBioBeta data, 37 synthetic biology companies raised USD 1.2 billion in the second quarter and 65 synthetic biology firms received USD 1.9 million funding in the first quarter of 2019.
