Biochips Market Overview :

The global biochips market was valued at $9,037 million in 2017, and is projected to reach $21,419 million by 2025 at a CAGR of 11.2% from 2018 to 2025. Biochip is a miniaturized medical device used in molecular laboratories to carry out several biochemical reactions simultaneously. It can rapidly screen a number of biological analytes for an array of applications such as disease diagnosis and detection of hazardous biological agents in a system. It is designed on the basis of microarray and microfluidic technologies, among which digital microfluid biochip is highly efficient, and has gained significant popularity in the biochemical field.


Market dynamics

Increase in prevalence of cancer, immunological disorders, and viral infections majorly drives the growth of the global biochips market. Other factors that boost the market growth include rise in geriatric population, increase in number of biochip applications, and high adoption of personalized medications. However, factors such as high cost of biochip and lack of knowledge about it majorly in emerging nations hamper the market growth. Conversely, rise in R&D investment as well as government funding and high potential in untapped markets in emerging economies are expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities for the market.

Market segmentation

The global biochips market is segmented based on product, application, end user, and region. On the basis of product, the market is divided into DNA chip, protein chip, lab-on-a-chip, and others. The DNA chip segment accounted for the largest market share in 2017, and is expected to continue this trend throughout the forecast period, owing to high adoption of DNA chip products. However, protein chip segment is anticipated to grow at a significant CAGR of 12.9% during the forecast period.

Analyst Review

Biochip is a small specimen chip or tray on which biological molecules are placed for biotechnological analysis. It is designed based on microarrays or microfabrication technologies. It is made up of glass, silicon, polymers, and aluminum material on which individual biological molecules such as NA, RNA, peptides, proteins, are immobilized on the surface. On the basis of biological molecules that are immobilized, biochips are differentiated into various categories such as DNA chips, protein chips, lab-on-chip, and others. Biochips are widely used in multiple medical and pharmaceutical applications as well as in the food industry and environmental safety procedures.

The adoption of biochips is expected to increase in the near future, owing to high prevalence rate of cancer, immunological diseases, and viral infections; rise in geriatric population; increase in biochip applications; and surge in demand for personalized medicines. These devices have gained significant popularity among patients as well as healthcare providers, as they are easy to operate and offer a host of benefits. However, high cost of biochips and lack of knowledge about biochips in emerging nations hamper the market growth.

North America witnessed the highest sales of biochip products, owing to increased awareness toward microarrays-based products and heavy expenditure by the government on improving healthcare, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific. In addition, manufacturers and distributors of biochip products have focused on expanding their presence in emerging economies, which is expected to drive the market growth.
