DUBLIN, May 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/cfd2c4/flow_cytometry) has announced the addition of the "Flow Cytometry Market by Technology, Products & Services, Application, End User - Global Forecasts to 2018" report to their offering.
On the basis of products, the global flow cytometry market has been segmented into instruments, reagents and consumables, software, services, and accessories. In 2013, the reagents and consumables segment accounted for the largest share of 45% in the global market, and is also expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 11.2% from 2013 to 2018. In addition, the global market is classified into three segments based on the type of technology, namely, cell-based, bead-based, and others. The cell-based segment accounted for the largest share of 80% in the global market
In the report, the global market is further segmented on the basis of type of end users, which includes commercial organizations, hospitals, academic institutions, medical schools, and clinical testing labs. In 2013, the commercial organization segment accounted for the largest share of 35% in the market. Likewise, based on the type of applications, the global market is classified into three categories, namely, research, clinical, and industrial applications. Application of flow cytometry in the research fields commands the major chunk of the market in 2013.
Increasing applications of technological advancements in flow cytometry instruments, fostering research activities in the field of life sciences, growing clinical trials, fostering prevalence of HIV and cancer, launch of new reagents for specific applications such as diagnostics, drug discovery and development of user friendly and intuitive software's are driving the growth of the flowcytometry market. Additionally, emerging markets such as China and India, development of high throughput flow cytometry, and fostering stem cells research unfolds new opportunities for the market players.
However, a number of factors including high cost of instruments, reluctance among researchers to use flow cytometers (due to complexity and consumption of large space), dearth of training, and lack of awareness among probable users are restricting the market growth. Furthermore, lack of adequate infrastructural developments in the emerging countries, and complexity related to reagent developments poses as key challenges to the growth of market.
