The global qPCR and dPCR market is expected to reach USD 4.94 billion by 2021 from USD ~3.28 billion in 2016, growing at a CAGR of 8.5% from 2016 to 2021. Digital PCR Market growth can be attributed to factors such as rising incidences of infectious diseases and genetic disorders; growing geriatric population that is at greater risk of target diseases as compared to adults; technological advancements; increasing public private investments, funds, and grants; successful completion of the Human Genome Project; and rise in the number of hospitals and diagnostic centers.

North America (comprising the U.S. and Canada) is expected to account for the largest share of the global market in 2016, followed by Europe. Factors such as increase in public and private funding and increasing financial support (in the form of research grants and funding projects) from prominent funding agencies and federal institutions for the R&D of innovative qPCR and dPCR products are driving the market growth in North America. However, Asia-Pacific (comprising China, India, Japan, and the Rest of Asia-Pacific) is projected to be the fastest-growing region in the market during the forecast period, owing to increasing focus of global life sciences companies on this region, burgeoning efforts to increase awareness related to gene-based disease diagnosis and treatment, growing public and private support to develop novel digital PCR technologies, the rise of the Indian genomics market, and strengthening cancer research in Japan, among others. Due to the significant growth opportunities offered by emerging countries, a number of players operating in the market are focusing on expanding their product distribution networks across emerging countries.

In 2015, Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. (U.S.) dominated the global digital PCR market. In the past three years, the company adopted product commercialization, agreements and collaborations, geographic expansions, and awareness campaigns as key business strategies to maintain its position in the market. The other key players in the digital PCR market include Bio-Rad Laboratories Inc. (U.S.), F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd. (Switzerland), QIAGEN N.V. (The Netherlands), Agilent Technologies, Inc. (U.S.), BioMerieux S.A. (France), Fluidigm Corporation (U.S.), Takara Bio Inc. (Japan), Affymetrix Inc. (U.S.), and RainDance Technologies, Inc. (U.S.).

The global qPCR and dPCR market is expected to reach USD 4.94 Billion by 2021 from USD 3.28 Billion in 2016, growing at a CAGR of 8.5% from 2016 to 2021. Digital PCR Market growth can be attributed to the rising incidences of infectious diseases and genetic disorders (coupled with growing geriatric population that is at greater risk of target diseases as compared to adults); technological advancements; increasing public-private investments, funds, and grants; successful completion of the Human Genome Project, and rise in the number of hospitals and diagnostic centers. However, high device costs associated with dPCR devices and technical limitations associated with qPCR and dPCR products are major factors restraining the Digital PCR market growth during the forecast period.

On the basis of Technology, digital PCR market is segmented into Quantitative PCR (qPCR) and Digital PCR (dPCR). The qPCR segment is expected to account for larger share of the digital PCR market in 2015. The strong market positioning of this technology segment is attributed to the ongoing automation of laboratory techniques (including integration of robotics with qPCR), growing adoption of qPCR among researchers and healthcare professionals (coupled with increased funding, grants, and public-private investments for qPCR-based researches), and large installation base of qPCR instruments.

On the basis of product and services, qPCR and dPCR products are categorized into qPCR (instruments, reagents and consumables, and software and services) and dPCR (instruments, reagents and consumables, and software and services). The qPCR reagents and consumables segment is expected to account for the largest share of the global qPCR products and services market in 2016. However, the dPCR instruments segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR in the global dPCR products and services market during the forecast period. The procedural benefits offered by dPCR over qPCR, growing market demand for dPCR (particularly in forensics and drug discovery), and rising number of dPCR-based research across the globe are the contributing factors to the growth of the dPCR instruments segment.

Geographically, the digital PCR market is classified into four regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World. North America is expected to hold the largest share of the global digital PCR market in 2016, followed by Europe. Factors such as increase in public and private funding and increasing financial support (in the form of research grants and funding projects) from prominent funding agencies and federal institutions for the R&D of innovative qPCR and dPCR products are driving the digital PCR market in the North Americas region. However, Asia-Pacific (comprising China, India, Japan, and the Rest of Asia-Pacific) is expected to be the fastest-growing region in the digital PCR market during the forecast period, owing to increasing focus of global life sciences companies on this region, burgeoning efforts to increase awareness related to gene-based disease diagnosis and treatment, growing public and private support to develop novel qPCR and dPCR technologies, growth in the Indian genomics market, and strengthening cancer research in Japan, among others.

Product development & commercialization and agreements, collaborations, and partnerships are the key strategies adopted by major players to strengthen their positions in the global digital PCR market. As of 2015, Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. (U.S.), Bio-Rad Laboratories Inc. (U.S.), F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd. (Switzerland), QIAGEN N.V. (The Netherlands), Agilent Technologies, Inc. (U.S.), BioMerieux S.A. (France), Fluidigm Corporation (U.S.), Takara Bio Inc. (Japan), Affymetrix Inc. (U.S.), and RainDance Technologies, Inc. (U.S.) were the leading players operating in the global digital PCR market.
