Global qPCR Reagents Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The global qPCR reagents market is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 7.75% from 2024 to 2029 and the market is expected to grow from USD 2.04 billion in 2024 to USD 2.96  billion by 2029.

Current Scenario of the Global qPCR Reagents Market

A qPCR is also known as a real-time polymerase chain reaction and is a laboratory method of molecular biology dependent 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 the 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.


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 are propelling the qPCR reagents market growth.

The prevalence of genetic disorders is significant, and an estimated six out of 10 people face health difficulties with some genetic connection. The impact of these health difficulties can range from mild to very severe. For example, an estimated 9% of the total population of the United States is suffering from one of infectious diseases. According to the statistics published by the World Health Organization (WHO), 350 million people worldwide are affected by genetic disorders. In addition, 1 in 800 live births with Down syndrome, 1 in 2500 live births with cystic fibrosis, 1 in 500 African American births with sickle cell anemia, 1 in 300 Ashkenazi Jewish births with Tay Sachs disease, and 1 in 5000 male births with hemophilia are suffering from some genetic disorder.

In addition, other factors contributing to the qPCR reagents market growth include the rising funding from the public and private sectors 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.

Furthermore, the growing penetration of international life science companies in the qPCR reagents market, the 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 qPCR reagents market.


However, the technical limitations associated with qPCR and the 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 the 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. As a result, the global qPCR reagents market has accelerated growth due to COVID-19. The continuous COVID­19 pandemic endures establishing demand for 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 massive count of negative examples. However, the qPCR is a high-cost assay 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.

qPCR Reagents Market  By Detection Method

Based on the detection method, the Probe-based qPCR reagents segment is anticipated to dominate with the highest growth rate during the forecast period. This is because it offers many advantages, such as multiplexing, which can detect different targets simultaneously. 

However, the dye-based qPCR reagents used in DNA amplification are also expected to show significant growth during the forecast period. The Dye is used to create a fluorescence background in DNA amplification which becomes stronger the more the DNA binds to dsDNA. Therefore, the technique's efficiency is helping it gain revenue during the forecast period. 

qPCR Reagents Market  By Packaging Type

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 the growth of the segment.

However, due to its several advantages, the qPCR master mixing segment is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period. The segment helps the researcher collect a perfect mix of DNA polymerase, dNTPs, MgCl2, and buffer without mixing errors. It helps reduce the time consumed in research, and it also prevents the possibility of sample contamination. Therefore, it is a straightforward and accessible method to help the segment grow. 

qPCR Reagents Market  By End User

Based on End-User, the hospital and diagnostic centers segment is expected to account for the leading share in the global qPCR reagents market. 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.

However, the research laboratories and academic institutes market is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period due to the rising R&D activities in the polymerase chain reaction market. The increasing interest in developing new drugs and research results are helping the segment's growth. 

qPCR Reagents Market  By Application

Based on the Application, the research application is projected to dominate the market during the forecast period. Furthermore, it will continue to dominate in the forecast period due to widespread use in research areas such as stem cells, microbiology, and agriculture.

However, the forensic segment is also expected to show significant growth during the forecast period due to the applications of qPCR in forensic requirements. Forensic work requires studying the evidence found at the scene in cases to determine several factors about the victim or the preparator. The analysis of each DNA sample has a standard short tandem repeat (STR) analysis which is done with the help of qPCR, thus supporting segment growth. 


Geographically, the global qPCR reagents market was dominated by North America in 2022, 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.
