Electrophoresis technique is being used since several decades to physically separate macromolecules such as RNA, nucleic acid fragments and proteins according to their molecular size and electric charge. Electrophoresis can be segmented as gel electrophoresis and capillary electrophoresis and both these techniques are observed to be the first choice of researchers for efficient analytical separation of macromolecules. Gel electrophoresis is a technique that separates macromolecules using gel-like matrix and has contributed to the growth by offering a wide range of geometrics to researchers. The market for capillary electrophoresis has been revitalized through growing popularity of microfluidics.
The factors driving electrophoresis market include the increasing importance of proteomics research and drug discovery, which in turn is triggered by increase in market demand for innovative drugs and therapies. Along with this patent expiration of several bestseller drugs increasing new drug development investments and market focusing on research projects involving proteins, associated biomolecules and genes is also driving this market. There has been a significant demand for technologically advanced electrophoresis equipment that are capable of providing higher precision and enhanced detection limits along with higher throughputs. Electrophoresis accessories market includes reagents, electrophoresis densitometers and DC supply, of which reagents market captures the major share followed by DC supply and electrophoresis densitometers.
