Transparency Market Research (TMR) has published a new report titled, “Diagnostic Specialty Antibodies Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2018–2026”. According to the report, the global diagnostic specialty antibodies market was valued at US$ 20,000 Mn in 2017 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 5.0% from 2018 to 2026. Surge in government investment in diagnostic health care and increase in launch of new, innovative biologic diagnostic kits are anticipated to boost the growth of the global diagnostic specialty antibodies market during the forecast period. North America and Europe are expected to dominate the global market in the next few years, owing to increase in number of players in the market through collaboration & acquisition and rise in awareness about usage of monoclonal antibodies as diagnostic options.
For instance, Agilent Technology acquired Multiplicom NV in January 2017 to broaden its molecular diagnostics portfolio. Additionally, in January 2017, Boehringer Ingelheim (BI) and Sanofi completed an agreement through which BI procured Sanofi’s animal-health business (Merial) and Sanofi took over BI’s consumer health care business. This acquisition makes Boehringer Ingelheim the second-largest animal health company in the world. The U.S. is a major market for Boehringer Ingelheim’s animal health products, accounting for nearly 40% of annual sales. In February 2017, Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. acquired RainDance Technologies, Inc. for US$ 72.7 Mn. This acquisition added RainDance's droplet-based solutions to Bio-Rad’s next-generation sequencing applications and strengthened its position in the area of Droplet Digital PCR.
The report offers detailed segmentation of the global diagnostic specialty antibodies market. Based on antibody type, the monoclonal antibodies segment is projected to account for the largest market share by 2026. Increase in importance of monoclonal antibodies in scientific research for generation and validation of mAbs is expected to boost the segment in the near future. However, the polyclonal antibodies segment is anticipated to expand at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
The oncology diagnostics segment is expected to expand at a high CAGR from 2018 to 2026. HIV diagnostics is expected to be another prominent segment, and is likely to register significant market attractiveness index by 2026. Rise in number of HIV related programs to spread awareness among people is likely to boost the segment during the forecast period.
