Global PCR Markets for Life Sciences Applications Report 2018 by Type (qPCR, dPCR) and Application (Pharmaceutical, General Research), 2016-2022 -

Including instruments, reagents, other consumables and software and services related to instruments, the market exceeds $2 billion dollars. This market is smaller than the clinical / diagnostics applications, but life science applications of PCR form an important basis for sales.

The life science market for PCR grew steadily for over two decades, although this growth is leveling off now. This is a large, diverse market that is now facing competition from next generation sequencing for a number of applications.

PCR technology has been widely licensed to other companies for both life science (for the purposes of this report, the research market equals the life science market) and diagnostic applications, and many companies are now active in these fields. Real-time PCR (qPCR) has become the most widely used DNA amplification method today.
