Global Digital PCR and Real-time PCR Market Overview
The Global Digital PCR and Real-time PCR Market size is forecasted to reach $9.4 billion by 2027 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.6% during the forecast period 2022-2027. In Medical Biotechnology, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a strong core molecular biology technique for copying and amplifying a tiny amount of DNA sample in a short period of time. DNA strands, a set of synthetic oligonucleotides primers, a thermostable DNA polymerase, and nucleotides make up a conventional PCR. The method is widely utilized in human genome research. Two of the most common PCR techniques are Real-time PCR (qPCR) and digital PCR (dPCR). Both qPCR and dPCR provide accurate quantification of nucleic acid molecules, however, dPCR is preferred over qPCR due to enhanced precision and its ability to measure microscopic quantitative differences. The Digital PCR and Real-time PCR market is being driven due to the surge in diseases and genetic disorders. The market also got a significant boost during the Corvid 19 Pandemic where Real-time PCR has deemed the gold standard of testing, and organizations such as the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) provided support to countries related to the adoption of the technique. These are some of the factors driving the growth of the market in the forecast period 2022-2027.
