Latin America Western Blotting Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The size of the Latin American Western blotting market was worth USD 80.27 million in 2022. This figure is expected to grow and worth USD 104.16 million by 2027, growing at a 5.35% CAGR from 2022 to 2027.

Western blot is often used in research to separate and identify proteins. In this technique, a mixture of proteins is separated based on molecular weight, and thus by type, through gel electrophoresis. These results are then transferred to a membrane producing a band for each protein. The membrane is then incubated with labels antibodies specific to the protein of interest. The unbound antibody is washed off, leaving only the bound antibody to the protein of interest. The bound antibodies are then detected by developing the film. As the antibodies only bind to the protein of interest, only one band should be visible. The thickness of the band corresponds to the amount of protein present; thus, doing a standard can indicate the amount of protein present.

Increasing research activities and R&D spending by pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies and a rise in HIV/AIDS prevalence are the primary driving factors of the market. Factors such as growth in the proteomics market, the increasing number of industry-academic research collaborations, the increase in requirement for personalized medicine, and new product launches are further expected to aid the market's growth. On the other hand, the emergence of alternative technologies is anticipated to harm the market's growth. Furthermore, strict regulations and the requirement of high procedural efficiency for accurate results are likely to challenge the market in the coming years. However, automation in western blotting instruments is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the market.

The consumables segment holds the largest share in this segment of the market. This is primarily due to the rising use of western blotting in research & diagnosis and an increase in the number of incidences of diseases requiring western blotting for diagnosis. The instruments market is further segmented into gel electrophoresis instruments, blotting systems, and images. The blotting systems segment is expected to account for the largest share in this market segment. This segment's large share can be credited to its high sensitivity, low run time, and high efficiency.
