Multiplex Biomarker Imaging Market

2019 Analysis and Review of Multiplex Biomarker Imaging Market by Imaging Technique - Immunohistochemistry (IHC) Assays, Fluorescent In-Situ Hybridization (FISH) Assays, and Tissue Microarray (TMA) Assays for 2019 - 2029

Instruments to Account for Higher Market Share

By capturing nearly 3/4 share of total market value, instruments continue to lead the pack, with their share exhibiting an increasing trend through 2029. Under the component type, immunofluorescence slide scanners will remain highly preferred over other instruments such as multispectral imaging systems and toponome imaging systems.

Benefits such as high image quality, reliability, and speed for entire slide imaging are influencing the inclination of manufacturers towards these instrument. Further, quantitative pathology imaging systems, although in their nascent stage, are also echoing potential sales prospects for market players.

Focus Sustained on Developed Regional Markets

Accounting for a collective share of 80%, North America and Western Europe will remain the key contributors to the revenue of the global multiplex biomarker imaging market. These developed regions continue to reflect lucrative growth potential due to supportive government policies and increasing financial assistance for laboratory and clinical research.

Being early adopters of innovative technologies and advanced healthcare infrastructure, market players are dedicating a significant slice of their investments to these regions. Given the emergence of cutting-edge technologies and rising per capita healthcare spending in Asia Pacific (APAC), the multiplex biomarker imaging market in this region is also receiving an impetus.

Coupling Multispectral Imaging with Multiplexing for Broadened Application Scope

Multispectral imaging is gaining good reputation within the biomedical sphere, as it optimizes the multiplexing process and curbs the side effects of auto-fluorescence in sync. This could further serve several purposes, including identifying target protein expression, detection of exact tumor location, oxy-deoxy hemoglobin status, and documentation of drug delivery. Leading market players are leveraging this imaging technique by increasing the component ion base of multispectral imaging devices that could provide multiplexing biomarker imaging, which, in turn, would help reap bigger margins.  

How Growth will Unfold

Considering efficiency in terms of processing time and accuracy during identification of target proteins in tissue samples, immunohistochemistry (IHC) assays will continue to stay at the forefront throughout the forecast period. This study reveals that, the adoption of this imaging technique will achieve its peak in 2022, registering revenue worth US$ 300 Mn. While IHC assay remain the focus of various immuno-oncology research, fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and transcription-mediated amplification (TMA) assays are also finding immense utilization in molecular diagnostics applications.
