Global qPCR Reagents Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The global qPCR reagents market size is estimated to be worth USD 1.76 billion in 2022 and is forecasted to be growing at a CAGR of 7.75% to reach USD 2.55 billion by 2027.

A qPCR is also known as a real-time polymerase chain reaction, and it is a laboratory method of molecular biology dependant on the polymerase chain reaction. It involves screening the magnification of a specific DNA segment while the polymerase chain reaction is undergoing. It can be applied in two variations, the semi-quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction and quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction. Applications of qPCR include gene expression, gene typing, miRNA analysis, pre-amplification, and virus detection. The process is usually carried out in a thermal cycler, which can illuminate each sample with a light beam of at least one specified wavelength. In addition, the thermal cycler can rapidly heat and chill samples.


The growth of the global qPCR Reagents market is mainly driven by factors such as the increasing patient population affected by genetic disorders and other infectious diseases, the growing geriatric population, and the advancements in technology in the life sciences domain.

Other contributors to the growth rate include the rising funding flowing in from the public and private sector and conferences and workshops held on the topic. In addition, growing market penetration in emerging countries and moving from plant-derived to genome-based drug discovery generate profitable market opportunities. The global qPCR reagents market growth is further driven by increasing public and private investment, funding and grants for PCR-based research, and the success of the human genome project.

Increasing penetration of international life science companies in the qPCR reagents market, growing policy focus on improved understanding of gene-based disease diagnosis and treatment, increased governmental and non-governmental funding for developing new qPCR technologies, and supporting cancer research provide growth opportunities to the market.


The technical limitations associated with qPCR and lack of technical expertise to operate qPCR equipment are the major factors restraining the market growth. In addition, the high cost of qPCR is expected to impede market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global qPCR reagents market:

The introduction of the new coronavirus (COVID-19) has rapidly developed during the pandemic period. The global qPCR reagents market has seen an acceleration in growth due to COVID-19. The continuous COVID­19 pandemic endures establishing demand on diagnostic screening. RT-PCR AND qPCR reagents are used to conduct sample tests to confirm the COVID-19 status in a person. qPCR is one of the qualitative recognitions of nucleic acids from SARS-CoV-2. The potentiality of RT-qPCR is examined for recognizing at least one single positive sample with a huge count of negative examples. However, the qPCR is a high-cost assay and is unavailable for most diagnostic centers and laboratories worldwide. Nonetheless, With the support of COVID-19, the global qPCR market is expected to grow at a much better pace during the forecast period.

The segment of qPCR Core Kits is expected to lead the global qPCR reagents market by packaging type during the forecast period. Factors such as low prices for core kits (as opposed to Mastermixes), versatility for end-users (as it is best suited for researchers to build independent response protocols), and growing private-public funding for life science research are strongly favoring this segment.

qPCR Reagents Market – By End User:

  • Hospitals & Diagnostic Centre
  • Research Laboratories & Academic Institutes
  • Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Companies
  • Clinical Research Organizations
  • Forensic Laboratories

The hospital and diagnostic centers segment is expected to account for the leading share in the global qPCR reagents market based on End-User. Due to strengthening the healthcare system for successful diagnosis and treatment of diseases, increasing qPCR reagents for diagnostic applications, and other advantages offered by qPCR.

qPCR Reagents Market – By Application:

  • Diagnostic
  • Research
  • Forensic

Based on the application, the research application is projected to dominate the market between 2021 to 2026. It will continue to be dominant in the forecast period due to widespread use in research areas such as stem cells, microbiology, and agriculture.

qPCR Reagents Market – By Region:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia-Pacific
  • Latin America
  • The Middle East and Africa

Geographically, the global qPCR reagents market was dominated by North America in 2019, with the region accounting for 38% of the overall market share. North America was followed next in line by Europe and Asia-Pacific. Asia-Pacific is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years, as is evident from the high CAGR value for the region. Another market that shows promise in the coming years in Latin America.

The North American market is strongly driven by the availability of advanced healthcare infrastructure, increasing public and private investments, and pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. In the regional market, the United States recorded the largest share of the qPCR reagents market, and it is anticipated to witness a predominant share during the forecast period. This is because of the technological advances in the life sciences sector, increasing healthcare spending, and favorable reimbursement policies. On the other hand, the Canadian qPCR reagents market is projected to showcase a considerable share in the coming years.

The European market was the second-largest shareholding region in the global qPCR reagents market in 2020. The occurrence of infectious diseases, increasing research and development activities, and accomplishment of human genome projected are fuelling the market growth. In addition, the emerging countries in the region such as Germany, the UK, Spain, Italy, and France are expanding the European regional market with a significant market share. Germany accounts for the largest share of the European qPCR reagents market owing to the technological developments in life sciences sectors, the presence of key market payers, and the prevalence of chronic diseases.
