DUBLIN, April 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/627nxq/polymerase_chain) has announced the addition of the "Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Market- Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2014 - 2020" report to their offering.
The PCR market is broadly classified on the basis of product segments, end-users and application areas. Among the product segments, reagents and consumables remain the most widely used segment with the largest share in the net sales across various companies, considering the global sales of USD 4,072.2 million in 2013.
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) enables DNA sequencing and helps in determining the order of its building blocks. PCR finds applications in disease diagnosis, forensic sciences, and identification of bacteria and viruses. PCR is an excellent technique for rapid detection of microbial contamination and pathogens, including those complicated to culture. These techniques are precise and robust methods that rely on polymerase enzyme to amplify trace amounts of DNA/RNA fragments by creating several identical or near-identical copies. The demand for greater efficiency and productivity in the pharmaceutical industry has led to the growth of this market.
The report on the global PCR Market studies the global PCR market in terms of products, end-users, applications and geography. Each of these segments has been analyzed in detail for market trends, recent developments, outlook and opportunities and various applications. The report provides the market size in terms of value (USD million) for each segment and sub-segment for the period from 2012 to 2020, considering the macro- and micro environmental factors. In addition, the compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of the overall market and the segments has also been included in the report for the forecast period from 2014 to 2020, considering 2012 and 2013 as the base years.
The PCR products studied in this report include instruments, and reagents and consumables. Instruments are further classified by type such as standard PCR, quantitative real time PCR (qPCR) and digital PCR (dPCR). Pharmaceutical and biotech industries, clinical diagnostic laboratories, hospitals, academics and public research organizations are the major end-users of the global PCR market.
