The sample preparation market is poised to reach USD 7,203.2 million by 2021 from USD 5,512.2 in 2016, growing at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period of 2016 to 2021.
Sample preparation involves conversion of samples into a format which can be directly placed in the analytical instruments for analysis. The conversion process ranges from simple ‘dilute and shoot’ methods to complex multi-stage sample handling activities. The number and type of steps differ according to the phase of the starting material. In addition, the process varies depending on the type of sample to be analyzed. The commonly involved sample preparation process for majority of sample type includes steps such as extraction, purification, and isolation. Solid Phase Extraction (SPE), Liquid-Liquid Extraction (LLE), and QuEChERS (Quick, Easy, Cheap, Effective, Rugged and Safe) are the popular sample preparation techniques.
The Consumables segment is expected to account for the largest share of the sample preparation market, by product, in 2016. Consumables segment comprising kits, columns, tubes, filters, plates and other consumables contribute to the largest share of the consumables segment as these are recurring items in a an attribute to repeat purchases. The genomics segment is expected to account for the largest share of the sample preparation market, by application, in 2016. The growing adoption of automated technologies that provide a large number of benefits over manual processes is the major factor driving the market for sample preparation in genomics. The pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries segment is expected to dominate the sample preparation market, by end user, in 2016. Pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries use sample preparation to achieve their research goals, such as the development of new cancer treatments or development of treatments for rare diseases.
North America is expected to account for the largest share in the sample preparation market in 2016, followed by Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World (RoW). The large share of North America region can be attributed to the presence of increase in laboratory spending, collaborations between vendors, large scale production of genetically modified crops in the U.S. In addition, initiation of Genomic Applications Partnership Program (GAPP) as well as the growing food testing industry in Canada. Asia-Pacific is expected to witness highest growth rate in the forecast period, mainly due to increasing concerns related to the presence of arsenic in food in Japan, government investments in the biomedical and biotechnology industries in China, and increasing government initiatives and growing pharmaceutical industry in India.
