Market Overview

Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a temperature-dependent nucleic acid amplification method that is used to enzymatically amplify DNA (Deoxyribonucleic acid) or RNA (Ribonucleic acid) in vitro. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) products can be accurately detected and quantified with the use of real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR), which is a valuable tool. Quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR), a molecular biology laboratory technique based on the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), is another name for real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR). In contrast to the traditional polymerase chain reaction (PCR) approach, which allows analysis only after the process is finished, the phrase "real-time" refers to the ability to track the amplification's progress while it is taking place.

Real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) works on the same amplification mechanism as polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Yet, the reaction is observed in "real-time" as opposed to seeing bands on a gel at the conclusion of the reaction. The reaction is added to a real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) apparatus, which uses a camera or detector to monitor the reaction as it happens. While there are numerous methods for tracking the development of a PCR reaction, they are always similar in one way. They all relate the production of fluorescence, which can be easily seen with a camera during each polymerase chain reaction (PCR) cycle, to the amplification of DNA (Deoxyribonucleic acid). Therefore, the fluorescence grows together with the amount of gene copies during the reaction, indicating the reaction's progress. The applications of real-time PCR are mutation detection, gene expression analysis, detection and quantification of pathogens, detection of allergens, species identification, detection of genetically modified organisms, determination of parasite fitness, and monitoring of microbial degradation.

Real-time PCR Market Dynamics

Driver

Increasing launch of the new real-time polymerase chain reaction system

The rise in the launch of the new real-time polymerase chain reaction system by the key market players operating in the market is expected to drive the growth of the real-time PCR market over the forecast period. The real-time polymerase chain reaction data makes it easy to conduct a fully quantitative analysis of gene expression. Therefore, in contrast to standard preparative PCR, Real-time PCR avoids "false negatives" by enabling the success of numerous polymerase chain reactions to be automatically determined after a short number of cycles without requiring individual inspection of each reaction.

  • For instance, in November 2023, F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd, a multinational holding healthcare company, announced the introduction of the next-generation LightCycler PRO System, which assists in performing advanced molecular diagnostics. In-vitro diagnostics and translational research are becoming closer with this innovative real-time polymerase chain reaction technology, which also sets new standards for performance and usability. The LightCycler PRO System allows labs to easily and legally move from discovery research to patient clinical sample testing since it is labeled and built for both research and in-vitro diagnostic processes.

Restraint

Challenges and limitations associated with the real-time polymerase chain reaction

The limitations and challenges occurring with real-time polymerase chain reactions can restrict the growth of the real-time PCR market. For instance, in May 2023, according to the data published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, it was estimated that there are various obstacles and restrictions associated with real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The complexity and expense of microfabrication and detection techniques like electrochemical amplicon or fluorophore-assisted detection make point-of-care testing less feasible.

Furthermore, the PCR process's lengthy amplification time and complexity make it ineffective for diagnosing infectious infections that appear suddenly. The use of PCR in medical sciences and research is further hampered by limited access to sufficient instruments and resources, especially in underdeveloped African nations. Furthermore, bacteriological investigations must be incorporated into laboratory control schemes in order to identify species and assess the viability of microorganisms, as PCR may not be sufficient for these tasks alone. The mentioned hurdles and constraints highlight the necessity for progress in real-time polymerase chain reaction technology to overcome them and enhance its efficacy across a range of uses.
