Global PCR Technologies Market - Forecast to 2019

DUBLIN, IRELAND--(Marketwired - Aug. 19, 2014) - Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "PCR Technologies Global market - Forecast to 2019" report to their offering.

Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a gene amplification technique that amplifies a single or a few copies of a piece of DNA across several orders of magnitude, generating thousands to millions of copies of a particular DNA sequence. PCR plays a crucial role in understanding the genetic diseases and is also used in the characterization and detection of infectious disease organisms in diseases like Lyme disease, AIDS, middle ear infection and tuberculosis.

PCR is an indispensable technique in Biotechnology, drug discovery and clinical diagnostics and it's key applications include DNA sequencing, Forensic science, Genotyping, Bioinformatics, gene expression, genetic mapping and DNA cloning.

PCR products market includes Reagents, consumables, instruments, software and services. Some of the key techniques available in market are Standard/basic PCR, Real-time/Q-PCR, Digital PCR (dPCR), Reverse transcriptase PCR, Assembly PCR, Inverse PCR, Nested PCR, Multiplex PCR, Hot start PCR and touchdown PCR

Among the various techniques, Q-PCR appears to be the fastest growing in PCR market followed by Reverse-Transcription PCR (RT-PCR) and Assembly. Based on the classification by products/tools, PCR Reagents is expected to be fastest growing PCR market followed by PCR Consumables and Machines.

The global PCR market is projected to grow at a healthy rate. North America would account for the largest market share followed by Europe and Asia-pacific. Increasing number of patients suffering from Infectious diseases, Cancers and positive investments in gene therapy and human genome project are further driving the growth of the PCR market.
