Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is an enzymatic process in which a specific region of DNA is replicated over and over again to yield many copies of a particular sequence. The PCR revolutionized the field of molecular biology. From extremely tiny amounts of DNA, regions can be amplified into millions of copies for further analysis. This technique is the forerunner for many molecular biology techniques, including sequencing, cloning, and other genetic manipulations. Furthermore, PCR has found applications in every field of molecular biology and biotechnology, both basic and applied. These include DNA cloning and manipulation, constructing transgenic plants and animals, forensic science, medical diagnosis, gene therapy, and environmental analysis. Recent technical advances use fluorescent probes and allow PCR analyses to be run in real time. Moreover, depending on the molecular basis of disease, the personalized medicine aims to provide tailor-made therapies to individual patients, which has become popular over the recent years. To facilitate personalized medicine, it is important to have robust and reproducible means of gaining molecular information about the underlying disease that can be used to guide clinical decision-making. Likewise, the PCR techniques are increasingly being utilized in such screening methods globally.

Polymerase Chain Reaction Market Outlook

Increasing prevalence of chronic diseases coupled with growing generic population across the globe, increasing genetic disorders, technological advancement and infrastructure are some of the key factors driving the polymerase chain reaction market. Increasing demand for personalized and precision medicine and rising in hospital facilities and research centers with government initiatives is likely to be the major driving factor for the growth of the polymerase chain reaction market. However, reimbursement issues and high cost of PCR instruments are the key factors hampering the polymerase chain reaction market growth. 


Polymerase Chain Reaction Market Segmental Overview

The polymerase chain reaction market is classified by product, end user and geography.

Polymerase Chain Reaction Market by Product
