Capillary electrophoresis equipment are the instruments used for separation of molecular substances based on size and charge to yield high-resolution sample measurement and characterization. The equipments have the ability to provide molecule detection through a light source and detector post separation by utilizing high voltages without overheating the samples. The market for capillary electrophoresis equipments has witnessed significant growth due to rising demand from various applications such as research, pharmaceutical, diagnosis and life sciences.

Market Dynamics

The growth in research funding, rising incidences of cancer, infectious diseases and genetic disorders, rapid proliferation of biotechnology industry, and increasing demand for sophisticated analytical equipments for production of highly specialized biomolecules have led to the growth of capillary electrophoresis equipments market, globally. Increasing demand for personalized medicine and rapid shift from plant-derived to genome-based drug discovery is expected to change the dynamics of the market in near future. Some of the major challenges for the growth of this market include stringent government regulations associated with electrophoresis reagents, fluctuating technology prices, limited sample analysis, time-consuming operations, and threat of substitutes.

Market Classification and Overview

The capillary electrophoresis equipment market is bifurcated on the basis of type, product, mode, application, end use industry, and geography. The capillary electrophoresis equipments market by type is segmented into single capillary electrophoresis, array capillary electrophoresis and others. Array capillary electrophoresis is the fastest growing type owing to its ability to provide a reliable and high-throughput method of DNA sequencing compared to the other types of capillary electrophoresis. Based on product, the market is divided into two broad categories namely, automatic capillary electrophoresis and semi-automatic electrophoresis. The automatic capillary electrophoresis system is used for complex and high-speed separation of DNA fragments based on short and slotted-vial array capillary. The semi-automated capillary electrophoresis systems are simple, inexpensive, robust and portable systems that are most preferred for determining β-agonists and pig-feed samples. Based on mode, the market is segmented into capillary zone electrophoresis (CZE), capillary electro chromatography (CEC), capillary gel electrophoresis (CGE), and capillary isoelectric focusing among others. CGE is the fastest growing mode of capillary electrophoresis owing to the growing demand for gel based protein and DNA separation methods in routine molecular biology research. Based on application, the market is segmented into research, diagnosis, quality control & validation, and others. Research dominated the application market owing to the increase in use of capillary electrophoresis equipments in drug discovery field along with the growing demand for micro-chip based capillary electrophoresis diagnostics globally. Based on end use industry, the market is further segmented into academic & research institutes, hospitals & diagnostic centers, and pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies among others. Academic & research institutes segment leads the end-use industry segment owing to the increase in government spending, growing collaborative investments, rise in R&D globally.

Regional Overview

The market for capillary electrophoresis equipments is segmented into regions such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle-East and Africa (MEA). North America was the major contributors to the growth of capillary electrophoresis equipments market in 2015. Asia-Pacific was the second biggest market followed by Europe. The market for capillary electrophoresis equipments in Asia-Pacific is further projected to witness highest growth in coming years owing to growth of pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries in the region.
