life sciences reagents market

Life science reagents are an integral part of the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, life science, and health care industries. These reagents have broad applications in in vitro diagnostics for the diagnosis of various chronic as well as infectious diseases, prediction of disease course, framing the treatment, and monitoring the effectiveness of the therapy. These reagents are widely used in the life science industry for isolation, separation, purification, and up to a certain extent amplification of the biological as well as chemical molecules from the tests samples.

High prevalence and rise in incidence rate of chronic and infectious diseases across the globe are projected to be the key drivers of the global life science reagents market during the forecast period. The emergence and outbreak of various infectious diseases have created challenges as well as new opportunities for researchers to develop new diagnostic tools and tests for early diagnosis and prevention of these diseases. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), as of October 2017, around 71 million people across the world were estimated to have hepatitis C infection. The WHO also stated that 36.7 million people were affected with HIV across the globe. Various chronic diseases such as chronic respiratory diseases (CRD), diabetes, chronic kidney diseases (CKD), cancer, stroke, and neurological disorders are the leading causes of disability and mortality across the globe. Demand for life science reagents largely depends on the growth of the life science and health care industries. Rapid growth of the life science industry has been observed in the emerging markets. This is projected to be one of the key drivers of the life science reagents market. Biopharmaceuticals is one of the fastest growing segments in the pharmaceutical industry, expanding at a CAGR of 8%, nearly double that of the overall pharmaceutical industry. Wide applications of life science reagents in the biopharmaceutical industry for the development of various biomarkers, production of biologic drugs, drug discovery, and therapeutic drug monitoring are factors likely to drive demand for life science reagents during the forecast period.

Development of tests for diagnosis of viral structural changes and new viral epidemics present significant opportunities in the global life science reagents market during the forecast period. For instance, in April 2017, Siemens Healthineers received an advance sum of US$ 8.9 Mn to develop immunoassays for Zika virus from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Moreover, economic development coupled with rise in disposable income and increase in awareness are gradually shifting attention of the leading health care institutions toward countries in Asia Pacific and Latin America. Moreover, increased investments by the leading private players in the health care and life science industries in countries such as Brazil, India, China, and South Korea owing to favorable regulatory policies represents a potential business opportunity in these regions.
