The qPCR reagents & consumables segment is expected to command the largest share of the qPCR products & services market. Factors such as the expanding applications of qPCR (owing to its technological benefits over traditional PCR, such as real-time analysis and reduced analysis time), growing private-public funding for life sciences research, and the rising number of probe-based multiplex genetic analysis procedures (that require the analysis of low-volume gene samples) are expected to drive the growth of the qPCR reagents and consumables market.

The infectious diseases testing segment is expected to account for the largest share of the qPCR clinical applications market in 2019. This is mainly due to the increasing prevalence of infectious diseases across the globe and the wide market availability of qPCR assays and kits for testing. Increasing awareness on the benefits of qPCR in infectious disease testing, coupled with the rising demand for early and effective disease diagnosis and treatment, have further fuelled the demand for qPCR products in infectious disease testing.

The hospitals and diagnostic centres segment is expected to dominate the qPCR market in 2019. The large share of this segment is attributed to the increasing market availability of qPCR reagents in clinical diagnostic applications; ongoing expansion of healthcare infrastructure across emerging countries; high prevalence & incidence of target diseases; and growing awareness on the benefits of qPCR.
