The dPCR and qPCR Market Size accounted for USD 7.8 Billion in 2022 and is estimated to achieve a market size of USD 18.6 Billion by 2032 growing at a CAGR of 9.2% from 2023 to 2032.
dPCR and qPCR Market Highlights
To amplify or replicate specific deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sequences, polymerase chain reaction technology (PCR) is utilized. This technology encompasses various applications, including diagnosing genetic diseases, testing genes for paternity, detecting infectious diseases, and aiding forensic sciences. Two primary types of PCR technologies are digital PCR (dPCR) and quantitative PCR (qPCR). Digital PCR is a relatively recent technique employed for DNA amplification and quantification through a molecular counting protocol. It offers advantages such as not requiring responsiveness or the preparation of standard curves. It proves vital in distinguishing allele expression, monitoring virus infections in individual cells, quantifying cancer genes, and detecting fetal DNA in circulating blood. Quantitative PCR (qPCR), also known as effective PCR, calculates PCR amplification simultaneously with the reaction. This technology eliminates the need for post-amplification processing, reducing the analytical process turnaround time and the risk of DNA or RNA contamination during amplification.
