Product Type - Segment Analysis

By product type, the competent cells market is classified as chemically competent and electro-competent cells.

Chemically competent cells are treated with calcium chloride to allow DNA to enter the cell membrane. Heat shock method is also used to open the pores of the cell membrane allowing entry of the DNA plasmid. Chemically competent cells are the best solution for general cloning and sub-cloning application. Electro-competent cells uses a process called electroporation to allow permeation of the DNA into cell membrane.

Electroporation is generally more expensive, but has better transformation efficiency. Chemically competent cells take more time for transformation. Thus the electro-competent cells are said to have higher growth rate in the coming years.  

End-User - Segment Analysis

On the basis of end user, the competent cells market is segmented into academic research institutes, pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies and contract research organizations. The academic research institutes segment is likely to account for the largest share of the market due to the increased research funding in biotechnological applications.

Application - Segment Analysis

Based on application, the competent cells market is dominated by the cloning segment. DNA cloning uses a process known as bacterial transformation in which the bacteria takes up the genetic material. This process is widely used in various molecular biology applications. The growing support and investments from government has led to the growth of this segment and it has a CAGR of 6.8%.

Geography - Segment Analysis

North America accounts for 33% of the Competent Cells market share in 2019. This is owing to the amount of research occurring in cloning and recombinant protein technology. Asia Pacific segment is likely to be the fastest growing in the coming years as favorable regulations and increased research activities are likely to contribute to the market here.

Drivers – Competent Cells Market

·         High demand for recombinant proteins technology

Genetic engineering and biotechnology have widened the scope of healthcare by offering treatments for various diseases that were previously not possible. The global competent cells market is driven by high demand for products derived for recombinant DNA technology. They have application in developing wide range of therapeutic products such as vaccines and protein therapies. These include therapies such as human insulin and human growth hormone among others.

·         Favorable investments and supporting regulations for researching treatments for diseases

With the increase in the number of diseases, authorities of most nations have increased focus on improving healthcare facilities and developing treatments for certain diseases. Thus they have increased investment in biotechnology companies and have also relaxed the regulation to favor the development of treatments for serious diseases.

Challenges – Competent Cells Market

·         High cost of research

The process of developing competent cells and the technology related to them are costly.  This process and the research requires high investments. The cost of competent cell kits are also high. This is said to restrain the market growth.
