Flow Cytometry Market Growth & Trends

The global flow cytometry market size is expected to reach a value of USD 11.5 billion by 2027, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 8.9% from 2021 to 2027. The high prevalence of chronic diseases, the introduction of technologically advanced flow cytometry solutions, and increasing R&D investments in the pharmaceutical industry are expected to propel market growth over the forecast period.

Increasing regulatory approval and the introduction of technologically advanced flow cytometry solutions are expected to facilitate market growth over the forecast period. For instance, in June 2020, Sysmex Corporation launched the XF-1600 flow cytometer for laboratories, in North America. Also, in January 2019, Beckman Coulter, a subsidiary of Danaher Corporation, expanded its clinical flow cytometry portfolio with the launch of its new ClearLLab 10C System. This newly launched integrated solution provides a standardized workflow that offers reliability and consistent clinical findings.

Technological advancements, resulting in enhanced accuracy, portability, and cost-effectiveness, are expected to present this market with future growth opportunities. Small-sized high-throughput cytometers are anticipated to gain popularity in the near future due to their associated benefits, such as ease of use and cost-effectiveness. Furthermore, improvements in fluorescent dyes and the introduction of bench-top cytometers are factors expected to drive market growth. Rapid advancements in multicolor flow cytometry, which has extensive applications in new drug development, have led to an easy cellular analysis by simultaneous evaluation of several parameters. These devices are extensively adopted by many contract research organizations.

Furthermore, the increasing prevalence of cancer, immunodeficiency disorders, and infectious diseases, including the outbreak of COVID-19, has significantly driven the demand for flow cytometry solutions for research and clinical applications. As per the American Cancer Society estimates, in 2020, around 1.8 million new cancer cases will be diagnosed in the U.S. Also, according to the data published by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), as of January 2019, there were around 16.9 million cancer survivors in the U.S.
