Explore Western blotting market that is expected to increase from $574.80 million in 2016 to $737.11 million in 2021

Western Blotting Market By Product (Instruments, Consumables), Application (Biomedical & Biochemical Research, Disease Diagnostics), End User (Academic & Research Institutes, Pharmaceutical & Biotechnology Companies)

Global Western blotting market is anticipated to grow at a 5.1% CAGR from 2016 to 2021 and it is estimated that the global market was valued at USD 574.80 million in 2016 and is expected to reach USD 737.11 million by 2021.The western blot is an extensively used technique in molecular biology, immunogenetics, and other molecular biology fields to identify specific proteins in a sample of tissue homogenate or extract. Synthetic or animal-derived antibodies are created to react with the specific target protein.

The sample to be tested is prepared and put together with these antibodies on a membrane. After a gel electrophoresis, if the specific protein is present, it will result in an accordingly stained band on the western blot.

On the basis of application, it is segmented into Biomedical & Biochemical Research and Disease Diagnostics. The biomedical & biochemical research segment is expected to hold the largest share of this segment of western blotting market.

This is mainly due to the increase in government spending on proteomics research, and rise in R&D spending by pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies in drug discovery and development. However, the disease diagnostics segment is projected to grow at the highest in the coming years.

This can be credited to rise in prevalence and incidences of HIV, HSV, HBV, and Lyme disease, among others. On the basis of end user, it is segmented into Academic & Research Institutes and Pharmaceutical & Biotechnology Companies.

Pharmaceutical and biotech companies segment will lead with the maximum share of this market segment. However, research institutions segment is expected to have the highest growth rate, followed by diagnostic laboratories segment with the least share in this market segment.

On the basis of geography, the market is analyzed under various regions namely North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Middle East and Africa.  North-America accounts for the largest share of the market.

This can be attributed to the increase in the prevalence of HIV and Lyme disease, U.S.–China collaborative program for biomedical research, increase in research funding and rising production of genetically modified crops in the U.S., HIV vaccine initiative, and growth in the intensity of pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical clinical research in Canada. In the coming years, Asia-Pacific region is expected to witness the highest growth in the western blotting market, with emphasis on India, China, and Japan.

Some of the companies dominating the market are Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc., Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc., GE Healthcare, Advansta, Inc., LI-COR Biosciences, PerkinElmer Inc., Bio-Techne Corporation, Merck KGaA, F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd., and Cell Signaling Technology.
