The Global Flow Cytometry Market size is expected to reach $7.7 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 8.3% CAGR during the forecast period.

With regard to describing and distinguishing various cell types within a heterogeneous population of cells, measuring cell size and volume, and determining the purity of separated subpopulations, flow cytometry is a commonly utilized technique. It allows the simultaneous evaluation of several parameters for an individual cell.

It is used to quantify the amount of fluorescence that fluorescently-labeled antibodies emit when they identify ligand proteins that bind to particular compounds found in cells, such as DNA and propidium iodide. Following the staining step, cells are placed in tubes or microtiter plates and incubated with unlabeled or fluorescently-labeled antibodies before being analyzed on a flow cytometer.

A laboratory test called flow cytometry is used to examine the properties of cells or particles. A sample of cells or other particles is pumped into a flow cytometer system while suspended in the liquid. In less than a minute, a computer can analyze and process about 10,000 cells. Analyzing the activation of cell surface or intracellular molecules is made easier by flow cytometry. It helps evaluate the purity of isolated subpopulations and is used to describe and characterize various types of cells across a heterogeneous cell population.

The market is being driven by increased R&D efforts by many prominent players for the creation of multicolor assays as well as cutting-edge analytical reagents. The market for flow cytometry has experienced rapid expansion as a result of the rising prevalence of chronic and infectious disorders. Typical samples range from various cell populations isolated from tissues to a cell line producing Green Fluorescent Protein.

The sample must be a single-cell suspension, which is the most important condition for effective and efficient flow cytometry analysis. This makes sure that each cell is examined separately. Cancer and immunodeficiency are two conditions that are frequently diagnosed using flow cytometry. One of the elements anticipated to propel the flow cytometry market in the coming years is the rising prevalence of certain disorders.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic had a favorable effect on the prospects for the flow cytometry business during the initial COVID-19 outbreak. The rising application of reagents in research and clinical trials has boosted the market share of flow cytometry reagents and therefore the use of the flow cytometry approach. For instance, in March 2020, Cytek Biosciences Inc. provided support to doctors and researchers who were examining the effects of the COVID-19 virus on human immune systems. COVID-19 patients had lower T- and B-cell frequencies than recovered donors or healthy donors.

Market Growth Factors

A Rise In The Adoption Of The Flow Cytometry Approach In Academia And Research

The increasing incidence and prevalence of HIV/AIDS and cancer worldwide, the growing use of flow cytometry techniques in academic and research settings, the expansion of public-private initiatives within the fields of microbiology and immuno-oncology research, technological advancements, the increasing integration of AI platforms into flow cytometry workflows, and improvements in flow cytometry software all contribute to the market’s growth. During the drug research and development procedures, flow cytometry has become a crucial technique for safety as well as exploratory objectives.

A Significant Expansion In The Number Of Applications Of Flow Cytometry

There is a rise in the number of applications of flow cytometry. Immunophenotyping is the procedure that uses the cytometer the most frequently. With the use of this method, groups of cells in a dataset consisting of blood, bone marrow, or lymph can be located and measured. These cell subsets are identified by fluorescently tagging population-specific proteins on the cell surface. Immunophenotyping aids in the clinical lab diagnosis of hematological malignancies such as lymphomas and leukemia. Additionally, in cell sorting applications, a customized flow cytometer called a cell sorter may physically separate target cells into different collection tubes. Each cell is interrogated and characterized by the cytometer as it moves through the laser.

Market Restraining Factors

High Cost Along With The Availability Of Alternatives Across The Market

Most end customers, including clinical laboratories, major research institutions, and pharmaceutical firms, need a lot of flow cytometry equipment to do several research projects at once. As a result, the initial cost related to the purchase and maintenance of these devices rises significantly. Budget constraints make it difficult for research and academic laboratories to purchase such tools.
