Digital PCR Market Dynamics:

The global digital PCR market will expand due to several factors. Some of them are rising technological advancements, novel product launches, growing infectious disease incidents, and a surge in R&D activities by biopharma companies.

The increase in technological advancements and research & development by various biopharmaceutical companies is expected to drive market growth.

The surge in research and development activities by various major key players is a major factor in driving the market. PCR diagnoses various illnesses, such as infectious diseases and genetic changes. It can diagnose the disease in its earliest stage, and even if only minute amounts of antibodies or cancer cells are present, it can detect it by amplifying the DNA or RNA multiple times. Nucleic acid measurement is accurate and sensitive, thanks to digital PCR (dPCR). Traditional PCR uses agarose gel electrophoresis to detect the amplified product, making it a semi-quantitative end-point examination. The three main subtypes of digital PCR (dPCR) are beaming, droplet, and chip-based digital PCR.

One of the significant possibilities in the worldwide PCR market is the growth of R&D spending for d-PCR molecular diagnostics. To facilitate effective diagnosis, several biotechnologies and life sciences, businesses are collaborating on developing diagnostic tests and the therapeutic use of d-PCR in several illness indications to provide effective treatment.

Introducing new products by major companies and technological breakthroughs in PCR technologies fuel the market's expansion. For instance, some market participants have created unique d-PCR products that can recognize various diseases or detect various genetic abnormalities. For instance, in Mar 2021, Thermo Fisher announced United States Food and Drug Administration had completed the listing for QuantStudio 5, a real-time PCR and launched it in the market. It helps labs and developers fulfill the demands of testing.

Major key players develop the latest products or models with novel technological innovations and advancements. Most of the products receiving approval are driving the market's growth. For instance, in 2020, Thermo Fisher created several PCR kits and tests for diagnostic and research to fight the COVID-19 outbreak. They released AcroMetrix Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) RNA Control after receiving the US FDA's emergency use authorization (EUA) for the SARS CoV 2 multiplex real-time PCR test.

Technical limitations associated with the market are expected to hamper the market growth.

Costly equipment and PCR's technological limitations are predicted to impede market expansion. A classic d-PCR method is accompanied by a variety of technical limitations, including the need for assay procedure optimization and validation, the measurement of signals all through the exponential growth phase of the PCR amplification, difficulties in target detection caused by the existence of reaction modulators, and the inability to identify biomolecules due to the poor efficiency of the DNA sequence template. Additionally, the usage of carcinogenic chemicals, chemical binding of d-PCR reagent to dsDNA and inability to evaluate DNA quality are some of the procedural restrictions that prevent using these reagents in genomic research.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis:

The COVID-19 outbreak severely impacted the healthcare industry. The PCR market has experienced a boom, and the diagnosis sector was most severely affected. Real-time and digital PCR are in high demand since they are used for drug research and diagnostic purposes. It is becoming increasingly important for industry entities to test COVID-19 by creating droplet digital PCR kits. The regulatory agencies have given these tests their full support to limit the COVID-19 pandemic's effects.

Since digital PCR techniques are utilized to diagnose COVID-19 infection, the COVID-19 epidemic is projected to affect the global PCR market's growth positively. The market is expanding because various infectious diseases are becoming more common.

Digital PCR Market Segment Analysis:

The droplet digital PCR segment is expected to hold the largest market share in the global digital PCR market.

The technology segment is further sub-segmented into digital droplet PCR, beaming digital PCR and chip-based digital PCR. Digital droplet PCR is expected to hold the largest market share due to the increasing number of product launches and various novel technological advances. Nucleic acid analysis can be done with extreme sensitivity, accuracy and exactness because of the development of digital PCR. It is also helpful for monitoring low-abundance targets, allelic variations (SNPs), targets with complicated backgrounds, and tiny changes in target levels that real-time PCR cannot pick up on. The use of this technology in in-vitro testing has now been authorized.

The droplet digital PCR divides the sample of DNA into 20,000 droplets using water-emulsion droplet technology. Every particular droplet then experiences PCR replication of the template and quantifying the positive droplets provides accurate target estimation. Absolute quantification, high precision and high sensitivity can be seen in droplet digital PCR so that it will be more helpful and accurate for analysis. For instance, in 2020, Bio-Rad announced that the droplet digital PCR SARS-CoV-2 test kit got emergency use permission from the United States Food and Drug Administration for COVID testing.

Digital PCR Market Geographical Analysis:

The North American region holds the largest market share in the global digital PCR market.

In 2021 North America reserve an extensive share in the digital PCR market, and it is estimated that it is also going to overshadow the global market in the coming years owing to the upsurge in widespread presence of chronic diseases, the existence of key players for the progress of digital PCR devices, and prevalent foundation and substructure in the region.
