Rapidly Growing Biotech and Pharmaceutical Sector across the Globe is Expected to Bolster the Demand for Biotechnology Reagents

14-Sep-2016 | Zion Market Research

Reagents are the substance used in the chemical reaction for identifying the unknown substance. Reagents can be classified as primary and secondary standard reagents wherein primary are in pure form whereas secondary are obtained by mixing of primary and any solution. Biotechnology reagents are mainly used in basic research, therapeutics, biomedical, clinical trials and are primarily used by the food and beverage industry, pharmaceuticals and agro biotech industry.

According to Zion Market Research, global demand for biotechnology reagents was valued at over USD 56.4 billion in 2015, is expected to reach above USD 94.6 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of slightly above 9.0% between 2016 and 2021. Biotechnology reagents are utilized in various testing, clinical trials and even in diagnosis among others. This is expected to drive the market for biotechnology reagents in the near future. There has been tremendous growth in R&D expenditure by biotechnology and pharmaceutical firms which is likely to witness foster growth of biotechnology reagent market. Conventional techniques such as combinatorial chemistry, DNA chips, high throughput screening and proteomics are anticipated to boost the demand for biotechnology reagent in the forecast period. However, huge research and development expenditure may impede the growth of biotechnology reagent market. Nevertheless, extensive use of biotechnology reagents in environment applications and untapped opportunities are likely to open new market avenues in the coming years.
