Global Multiplex Assays Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The global multiplex assays market size is anticipated to grow at a 7.15% CAGR from 2023 to 2028. It is estimated to be worth USD 4.99 billion by 2028 and USD 3.53 billion in 2023.

Multiplex assays are used in research to measure multiple analytes in a single run simultaneously. It differs from the procedures that measure only one analysis at a time. For example, they are extensively used in experiments involving functional genomics. These experiments attempted to detect or assay the state of all biomolecules of a given class (e.g., mRNAs, proteins) in a biological sample to determine the effect of an experimental treatment or the impact of a DNA mutation over all of the biomolecules or pathways in the sample.


The growing of chronic illnesses particularly cancer, where multiplex assays are widely employed is one of the key factors driving the multiple assays market growth.

Due to the increased incidence of chronic diseases, the growing acceptance of personalized treatment, and the numerous advantages of multiplex assays over traditional assays, the market for multiplex assays is expected to develop rapidly. Other significant factors predicted to promote the growth of the global multiplex assays market are the numerous benefits of multiplex assays and fast advancements in nanotechnology. In addition, the market is also being driven by the usage of multiplex tests for diagnosing cancer, the benefits of multiplex assays over singleplex tests, immune system disorders, bone marrow diseases, and other infectious diseases, as well as technical advances in multiplex assay techniques.

More research activities in the pharmaceutical and biotechnological sectors, increased government funding, and a rising focus on improving the efficiency of experiments are further expected to propel the worldwide market forward. The growing recognition of the multifactorial character of illnesses and pathological situations such as cancer and Alzheimer's disease has necessitated the development of a method for measuring several analyzers in a single sample that is both cost-effective and time-saving. This factor drives the global market for multiplex tests. In the next few years, new growth opportunities will likely emerge from developing very dense nanoarray technology and attempting to deliver more improved and cost-effective solutions. Companion diagnostics are fast-growing in terms of number and use in disease areas and have quickly become an important element of personalized treatment. Companion diagnostics are expected to develop rapidly in the near future, based on the present product pipeline. This increase in companion diagnostics is likely to impact the development of the global multiplex assays market substantially.


The high procurement prices and usage of multiplex assays are key major obstacles to the global multiplex assays market's growth. Furthermore, the global multiplex assays market will likely be hampered by strict government requirements for multiplex assay approval throughout the forecast period. The rising demand for healthcare systems to deliver services at a reasonable cost is expected to restrict the expansion of the Multiplex Assays Market. In addition, the Multiplex Assays Market is believed to be hampered by the complexity of clinical trial methods.

COVID-19 Impact on the global multiplex assays market:

COVID-19 has affected the global economy. Almost all the world's industries were affected negatively during the pandemic due to the implementation of strict lockdowns. In parallel to that, some industries were seen positive growth irrespective of the pandemic, and the Multiplex Assays Market is one of them. The Multiplex Assays Market has had some positive growth during the pandemic due to the rise in the adoption of multiplex assays in covid-19 vaccines is driven the market. The increase in multiplex assays' usage has made the market players increase their production to meet demand. Moreover, On July 2, 2020, FDA granted an Emergency Use Authorization for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Influenza SARS-CoV-2 (Flu SC2) Multiplex Assay. Like any other industry, the multiplex assay market had faced supply chain disturbance and a lack of industry workers due to the lockdown. But the market players dealt with these issues well and led the market to grow.
