The rapid adoption and increasing demand for personalized medicine further fuel the growth rate of the electrophoresis market. Personalized medicine is a new way of healthcare that tailors treatment to the individual patient. Electrophoresis is a key tool for personalized medicine, as it can be used to identify genetic mutations that are linked with disease. The growing patient population suffering from chronic diseases promotes market growth. The incidence of chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease is rising worldwide. Electrophoresis is a valuable tool for diagnosing these diseases.

The emergence of the latest technologies, the launch of innovative devices, the rising demand for genomics applications and increasing investments in research centers drive the market growth. The growing tendency for artificial chromosome libraries and even demands for genetic mapping support the market growth. The growing support from the government to develop quality treatment procedures, the rising prevalence of the analysis of vaccines and drugs in the pharmaceutical industry, increasing prevalence of chronic diseases like infectious diseases, cancer, and genetic disorders drives the global electrophoresis market. The growing usage of Next Level Sequencing (NGS) and increased capillary electrophoresis with mass spectroscopy propel the market growth. Moreover, many industries and academic research institutes collaborate and integrate innovations in biochemical, molecular, and biological research to develop an effective treatment, fueling the market. Further, the increase in the Prominence of Nanoproteomics is another factor demanding market growth.

The increase in the usage of Electrophoresis techniques in emerging countries like China, India, etc., is expected to boost the market in coming years. The rise in the number of clinical, forensic, and research laboratories boosts the market. Moreover, the move from plant-derived to genome-based drug discovery is estimated to propel the market. The increasing demand for personalized medicine is a significant opportunity for the Electrophoresis Market.


The high cost associated with the instruments and reagents restrains the market growth. The presence of alternative technologies providing better efficiency and results hinders the electrophoresis market growth. Moreover, the limited sample analysis and time-taking operations are hammering the market. Heavy usage of hazardous chemicals used with electrophoresis may affect the patient, available on Electrophoresis Instruments. So, Safety is the only and significant challenge for the electrophoresis market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global electrophoresis market:

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the market for electrophoresis. Electrophoresis is a technique used to separate and identify DNA, RNA, and proteins. As it enables the detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, it is a crucial step in the diagnosis of COVID-19. Electrophoresis was mostly employed in research settings before the pandemic. It is now more frequently used in clinical settings due to the demand for quick and precise COVID-19 testing. As a result, there is an increase in demand for electrophoresis tools and supplies. Another reason why electrophoresis has become more widely used for COVID-19 diagnosis is the development of a set of primers for evaluating binding created by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (C     DC) and approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) for routine PCR diagnosis of COVID-19. With the help of these primers, particular areas of the SARS-CoV-2 genome can be amplified and subsequently electrophoretically detected. It is a good alternative for point-of-care testing because it is a relatively cheap and easy-to-comprehend procedure. This is essential in COVID-19 since it enables quick patient testing at medical facilities. In the upcoming years, electrophoresis will probably still be used more frequently to diagnose COVID-19. As the pandemic demonstrated, quick and precise testing will be required to locate and segregate affected people. Electrophoresis is a well-established and reliable technique that is well-suited for this task.
