Reagents Segment to Dominate the Global PCR Market
The report offers detailed segmentation of the global PCR market based on product and end-user. In
terms of product, the market has been segmented into instruments, reagents, and consumables. The
reagents segment held the leading market share in the year 2017 and is expected to expand at the
highest CAGR during the forecast period. This is attributable to high consumption of reagents for the
PCR technique. Introduction of advanced reagents specific to the type of test is expected to boost the
global demand for PCR reagents in the near future. PCR reagents include template DNA, PCR primers
and probes, dNTPs, PCR buffers, enzymes, and master mixes.
PCR consumables mostly include PCR tubes, plates, and other accessories required to conduct PCR
reactions. The instruments segment has been sub-categorized into standard PCR systems, RT PCR
systems, and digital PCR systems. Among these, the digital PCR systems sub-segment is expected to
witness growth at a significantly rapid pace during the forecast period. This is attributable to advantages
of digital PCR systems such as precision, sensitivity, accuracy, reproducibility, direct quantification
