Electrophoresis Equipment and Supplies: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) March 16, 2012
Follow us on LinkedIn – Healthcare and biotech represent the least affected industries due to the recent global economic recession, with few of the biotech firms in fact reemerging from the recessionary woes and posting positive gains. Biotechnology instruments market, including electrophoresis equipment, is driven by the growing demand for innovative drugs and therapies, which is driving the need for drug discovery research. With several drugs losing patents in near future, drug manufacturers have intensified their efforts to discover and develop new drugs. Furthermore, following the success of the human genome project, the rise in the number of research projects involving proteins, genes, and associated biomolecules, is also contributing to the increased demand for electrophoresis instruments.
Electrophoresis is one of the most widely used technologies for separation and analysis in life science laboratories. Proteomics research, along with other research activities in various industries, continues to foster the demand for electrophoresis instruments across the world. The US represents the largest market for electrophoresis equipment and supplies worldwide, as stated by a new market research report on Electrophoresis Equipment and Supplies. However, growth is expected to emanate mainly from Asia-Pacific market, which is forecast to grow at a compounded annual growth rate of about 5.3% during the analysis period.
Among the product types, Gel Electrophoresis systems represent the largest product segment. Polyacrylamide and agarose gels are the most commonly used modes in gel electrophoresis applications. Growth in the Gel Electrophoresis segment is mainly due to its increasing usage in Genomics applications. Though Two Dimensional (2D) gel electrophoresis systems require much labor and time, the growing attention on proteomics research is spurring growth in this market. Capillary Electrophoresis Systems, on the other hand, is projected to emerge as the fastest growing product segment over the analysis period. The burgeoning popularity of capillary electrophoresis as an effective separation technique is attributed to its ability to provide high efficiency and resolution, and minimal sample and solvent requirements, complete automation, on-line detection capabilities, and ease of miniaturization. Laser induced fluorescent detection method is a potential new area for Capillary Electrophoresis.
Major players profiled in the report include Agilent Technologies, Beckman Coulter Inc., Bio-Rad Laboratories Inc., C.B.S Scientific Company Inc., Dionex Corporation, GE Healthcare, Helena Laboratories Corp., Hoefer Inc., Life Technologies Corp., Lonza Group Ltd., Owl Separation, Sebia, SERVA Electrophoresis GmbH, Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., among others.
