The western blotting market is projected to reach USD 730.7 million by 2021 from USD 574.8 million in 2016, at a CAGR of 4.9% in the next five years (2016 to 2021).
The western blotting market is undergoing a significant transformation, with the automation of blotting systems and imagers. Furthermore, it is one of the most basic technologies for the separation of proteins and is seen at almost every protein research laboratories. The growth of this market is majorly influenced by the dynamics of the protein research industries.

The increasing number of research activities and R&D spending by pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, rising prevalence of HIV/AIDS, growing proteomics market, the growing number of industry-academic research collaborations, increasing demand for personalized medicine, and new product launches are some factors expected to drive the growth of the global western blotting market in the coming years. On the other hand, emergence of alternative technologies is expected to restrain the growth of the market. However, automation in western blotting instruments is expected to pose lucrative opportunities for the western blotting market. Furthermore, stringent regulations and requirement of high procedural efficiency for accurate results are likely to challenge the western blotting market in the coming years.

In 2016, North America is expected to account for the largest share of the global western blotting market, followed by Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World (RoW). North America’s large share is attributed to the increasing prevalence of HIV and Lyme disease, U.S. –China collaborative program for biomedical research, rise in research funding & increasing production of genetically modified crops in the U.S., HIV vaccine initiative, and Growing intensity of pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical clinical research in Canada. In the coming years, the western blotting market is expected to witness the highest growth in the Asia-Pacific region, with emphasis on India, China, and Japan. This can be attributed to factors such as presence of bioclusters in China and India, outsourcing of research activity in China, increasing government interest in biomedical & biotechnology industry in China, government initiatives supported by funding in Japan, growing pharmaceutical & biotechnology industry in Japan, growing pharmaceutical industry backed by government funding in India, and growing funding for agriculture research in India.
