The global microarray analysis market was pegged at ~US$ 4.79 billion in 2021 and is expected to witness a CAGR of ~7.6% during the forecast period.
Microarray is a technology for analysis of gene expression or for gene mapping. Thousands of gene sequences are placed on a glass slide called a gene chip; the sample containing DNA or RNA is placed in contact with the gene chip. When the sample and the gene sequences on the chip base pair, they produce light which is further measured and used to identify genes that are expressed in the sample. DNA microarray technology enables researchers to study, better understand and address issues which were once non-traceable. There are many applications of microarray analysis including gene discovery, disease diagnostics, drug discovery as well as toxicological research.
Rising incidence of diseases such as cancer, growing application of microarray analysis in disease diagnosis & prognosis, and the rising funding for genomic research are some of the major factors expected to fuel the market growth. Moreover, research institutes and companies are entering into strategic collaborations for conducting R&D activities and this factor is also playing a pivotal role in propelling the global microarray analysis market growth. However, advancements in NGS technology have led to its growing adoption and this is hindering the growth of microarray analysis market to a certain extent.
