Electrophoresis Technology: Global MarketsWELLESLEY, Mass. – The global electrophoresis market was worth nearly $1.35 billion in2011 and $1.4 billion in 2012. The market is projected to grow at a compound annual growthrate (CAGR) of 4% over the next five years to reach nearly $1.8 billion by 2018.The expanding realm of molecular profiling applications is providing continued demand for this technology, although electrophoresis exhibits characteristics of a mature market. Nucleicacid and protein separation are the two major applications of this technology.The electrophoresis market is broadly segmented into gel electrophoresis (GE) and capillaryelectrophoresis (CE) technologies. A new complementary technology that is gainingcommercial significance is the lab-on-a-chip/microfluidics technology. Electrophoresis has been one of the most successful applications of the growing microfluidics technologymarket.Genomics applications have fueled the demand for GE systems in the past. The ongoingquest to unravel the human proteome has provided the impetus for protein GE predominantlycarried out by two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (2D PAGE) method. Theexpanding proteomics research pursuits have deemed the 2D PAGE/slab gel technique as themost reliable platform, owing to its ability to resolve and measure posttranslational modified protein entities.The modestly growing DNA sequencing market along with soft demand from life sciencesresearch laboratories and cautious spending of biopharmaceuticals have had an impact on theoverall growth of CE techniques. Fortunately, the ascent of microfluidics/lab-on-a-chiptechnology is revitalizing the CE technology market. Therefore, the net impact of thesefactors is expected to account for the estimated CAGR of 5.5% between 2013 and 2018.Both CE and GE technologies rely heavily on aftermarket reagents and supplies. The presence of a high installed base for electrophoresis instruments and the low replacement ratefor these instruments has slowed down sales of these systems. The broadening of researchapplications along with existing installed base has ensured sustained demand for aftermarketreagents and supplies.As for the GE reagents segment, precast gels are anticipated to grow at the cost of handmadegels as researchers are willing to invest in these ready-made gels. The use of mini-gelsinstead of the established large-format gels has gained prominence among the researchcommunity.The use of nonfilm imaging techniques such as infrared imaging is gaining momentum and isanticipated to supplant traditional film-based imaging methods through the course of theforecast period. The development of cooled charge coupled devices (CCD) and laser scannershas substantially improved detection capabilities of gel imaging systems.The technology developments in the gel imaging segment are accompanied by corresponding progress seen in gel informatics. Informatics vendors are taking many initiatives to addressthe growing concern of reproducibility in the 2D gel technique by sophisticated signalanalysis algorithms that reflect true biological outcomes. Gel informatics is likely to witness
