The global Nucleic Acid Isolation And Purification market size is expected to be worth around US$ 10.8 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Nucleic Acid Isolation And Purification market size was valued at US$ 4.4 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 11.7% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.

Growth Factors

The growth can be primarily attributed to the technological advancements in molecular detection platforms. The technologies such as robotic liquid handling in automated DNA extraction systems, have improved the process flow. Such automation has streamlined all the tasks involved in various processes, such as DNA extraction from samples, serial dilution, and picking the desired gene of interest.

The outbreak of SARS-CoV-2 in late 2019 in China quickly translated into a global pandemic, which led to high demand for efficient and affordable diagnostic tests that could be carried out in non-clinical as well as clinical settings. This also led to high demand for nucleic acid extraction kits which in turn has led the key players to increase their manufacturing capabilities. For instance, in March 2020, QIAGEN announced the expansion of its production capacity in the U.S. and Europe to reach 20 million monthly patient tests by the end of 2020.

Moreover, rapid diagnosis, effective treatment options, and future prevention plans are essential in the management of COVID-19. The current race for the development of cost-effective, point-of-contact test kits and efficient laboratory methodologies for the detection of coronavirus infection has driven a new frontier of diagnostic innovation. The increase in adoption of PCR for SARS-CoV-2 detection by a wide range of commercial laboratories drives the market, as nucleic acid isolation and purification is an important step in the PCR workflow. 

Report Highlights

The kits and reagents segment dominated the market for nucleic acid isolation and purification in 2020 and accounted for the largest revenue share of 76.0%. The wide-scale application of kits and reagents for DNA and RNA isolation for preparing samples and libraries can be primarily attributed to market growth. In addition, a rising number of research studies focused on understanding rare and common genome-based diseases are increasingly using kits and reagents, which is further driving the segment.

The instruments segment is expected to witness the fastest CAGR of 12.6% over the forecast period. The growth in the segment can be attributed to the launch of new instruments facilitating automation, rapid technological innovation, and growing demand for automated Nucleic Acid Isolation and Purification (NAIP) instruments.

For instance, in April 2020, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. collaborated with Hamilton Company to develop an automated nucleic acid extraction platform for forensic laboratory purposes. The ID NIMBUS Presto assay facilitates automated DNA extraction from samples collected from the crime scene.

The RNA isolation and purification segment dominated the market for nucleic acid isolation and purification and accounted for the largest revenue share of 53.6% in 2020 owing to the increasing application in COVID-19 diagnostics and rise in use of purified mRNA for the construction of the cDNA library. These libraries have various applications such as gene expression profiling, sequencing, and clinical diagnostics. Moreover, the availability of a broad range of kits for extraction and processing of viral and bacterial RNA is further contributing to segment growth.
