Emerging Economies in Asia and Plasmid DNA Isolation and Purification Are the New Revenue Pockets for the Nucleic Acid Isolation and Purification Market
The extraction of nucleic acid from biological materials is used in molecular biology for applications such as restriction digestion; southern blotting; polymerase chain reactions (PCR); and for the analysis of clinical, soil, and environmental samples. The use of the pure form of DNA in drug discovery, molecular diagnostics, and genotypic applications has further heightened this market. The earliest method used for DNA isolation and purification was organic extraction. The conventional methods were labor-intensive, complicated, time-consuming, and limited in terms of overall throughput. These manual methods were replaced by automated and kit-based systems, which have grown in demand over recent years.
North America accounted for the largest share of the global nucleic acid isolation and purification market in 2013. However, the Asian market is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period and represents new revenue pockets for the nucleic acid isolation and purification market. Growth in this market is likely to be centered on China and India among all Asian countries. The growth in the Chinese and Indian economies and increasing R&D spending will be a major driver for growth in the Asian nucleic acid isolation and purification market. The Asian market is expected to witness a steady year-on-year growth, owing to the increasing awareness of genomics applications in this region. Government support in the form of funding and increased research activities are the key drivers for the nucleic acid isolation and purification market in this region.
The application segments included in this report are blood DNA isolation and purification, genomic DNA isolation and purification, micro RNA isolation and purification, mRNA isolation and purification, plasmid DNA isolation and purification, total RNA isolation and purification, and PCR cleanup. Among all application segments, plasmid DNA isolation and purification contributed the largest share of nucleic acid isolation and purification application market. The purified plasmid DNA is used in a wide variety of downstream applications such as PCR, expression of proteins, sequencing, transfection, and gene therapy. This segment is expected to retain a steady growth rate till the end of the forecast period in 2018 as the demand for plasmid purification products remains driven by the rapid advances in gene therapy and vaccines research.
