The biosensors market was valued at $17,500.0 million in 2018 and is expected to reach $38,600.2 million by 2026, registering a CAGR of 10.4% from 2019 to 2026. Biosensors are medical devices that are primarily used to sense or detect the presence or concentration of biological substances, such as a biomolecule or a microorganism. They are analytical devices that can convert a biological response into an electrical signal. Biosensors majorly comprise three parts, including a component that identifies an analyte and produces signal, a signal transducer, and a reader device. Biosensors find their applications in food & beverages, environmental monitoring, home care diagnostics. and various nanomechanical biosensors. In addition, biosensor applications are also widely dominant in the field of plant biology to study metabolic processes.

Significant rise in chronic diseases such as diabetes across the globe, surge in biotechnology R&D, and increased demand for home care devices are the major factors that drive the biosensors market growth. In addition, considerable increase in preference of biosensors in glucose monitoring devices contributes to the market growth. However, high cost associated with these devices and lack of inclination toward adoption of new treatment devices are the major factors anticipated to hamper the market growth. On the contrary, technological advancements in biosensors to make them portable and easy to handle is anticipated to create lucrative opportunities in the future.

Analyst Review

Biosensors are devices that are mainly used for detection of an analyte. These are often referred to as self-contained integrated devices, which are proficient in providing quantitative analytical information using a biological recognition element. The main feature of a biosensor is real-time in-situ delivery of required information. A biosensor is mainly composed of three prime components, including biological element, that detects the target analyte and generates a signal in response to it, a transformer, and a detector that amplifies the result. 

The biosensors market is anticipated to witness a fast growth in the future, owing to its increased use in point-of-care and home care diagnosis. In addition, surge in focus toward environmental monitoring across the globe due to rise in pollution also boosts the market growth. Biosensors are gaining traction in the field of food & beverages as these are used to monitor contamination and usage of insecticides. These devices are also used in the field of drug discovery and new analyte discovery. However, high cost of these devices and low adoption of new treatment practices is expected to hamper the market growth in the future. Moreover, North America dominated the market in 2018, owing to developed healthcare infrastructure and increased focus toward the biotechnology sector. However, Asia-Pacific is anticipated to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period.
