Global Flow Cytometry Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The global flow cytometry market size is forecasted to grow to USD 4718 Million in 2022 and reach USD 7773 Million by 2027. This market is growing at a CAGR of 10.5% during the forecast period.

Flow cytometry is a laser-based biophysical methodical technology that procedures and examines several physical features of particles postponed in a fluid as they pass through a laser beam. Flow cytometry has several advantages over traditional analytical methods, such as ELISA, including its ability to provide accurate and precise results. In addition, it is less time-consuming at approximately the same price. As a result, flow cytometry technology is used in several areas of academic research and diagnosis of HIV, hematologic malignancies, and cancer.

COVID-19 Impact on the global flow cytometry market:

The continuous COVID-19 pandemic and the global reaction have caused industries to seriously re-think their strategies and the way to operate. Biopharmaceutical creators are at the forefront of human responsibility toward the coronavirus pandemic. During the initial phases of Covid-19, the market had a minor downfall due to the stringent COVID-19 guidelines and social distancing. But later, significant progress has been made in COVID-19 diagnostics and therapeutics. In addition, biopharmaceutical companies worldwide are making efforts to develop a vaccine for the COVID-19.

The researchers have conducted many R&Ds to study the novel virus and the disease it causes. An increasing number of clinical trials for possible drug treatment.  Several research institutes and biopharmaceutical companies are doing extensive research activities to develop new Vaccines and therapies, and demand for flow cytometry increased. Moreover, flow cytometry techniques in COVID-19 research activities and clinical trials have provided opportunities for a wide range of market players.  The outbreak of COVID-19 led to the high growth of the flow cytometry market. The market is expected to register healthy growth during the forecast period.


Y-O-Y rise in the occurrence rate of chronic and infectious diseases such as cancer and HIV are majorly driving the global flow cytometry market growth.

Technological advancements, growing acquisition in cytometry techniques, increasing market perforation in existing countries, and growth in stem cell research and acquisition of recombination of DNA technologies for antibody protection are further likely to augment the growth rate of flow cytometry market.

Flow cytometry is an impedance or laser technology used in biomarker detection, cell counting, and protein engineering. It allows a detailed study of cellular structures using the software. The growing number of patients with cancer and HIV and the increasing use of flow cytometry in hospitals and diagnostic centers have created an imminent need for flow cytometry for effective diagnosis and surveillance of the disease. The fluorescence stimulated cell sorting or FACS used in flow cytometry has ensured a healthy future market.


The restraining factors that challenge the growth of the flow cytometry market are the availability of alternate and cheaper techniques, high costs associated with flow cytometry reagents and instruments, budget restrictions for research purposes, and expensive installation and maintenance costs.

High costs associated and the scarcity of labor and skilled technicians in the lab and clinics also hamper the flow cytometry market growth. Additionally, the lack of awareness among the end-users and less accessibility of technical expertise is further restraining the market growth during the analysis period.
