Flow Cytometry Market Trends



  • Increasing prevalence of chronic diseases


There has been a significant increase in the prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, autoimmune diseases, infectious diseases, and others which has led to an increased demand for advanced diagnostic and research tools such as flow cytometry. For instance, according to World Health Organization (WHO) figures, cancer is the primary or second leading cause of death in 112 of 183 nations before the age of 70. Similarly, GLOBOCAN 2020 estimates of cancer incidence produced by the International Agency for Research on Cancer state worldwide, an estimated 19.3 million new cancer cases in 2020. Additionally, according to the WHO, in 2019, an estimated 17.9 million individuals died from cardiovascular diseases, accounting for 32% of all global deaths. 85% of these deaths were caused by a heart attack. Flow cytometry, with its capability to study specific cell populations and analyze immune responses, has become indispensable in comprehending the complex cellular mechanisms underlying chronic diseases. It allows researchers and clinicians to identify biomarkers, analyze disease progression, and monitor treatment response at a cellular level. As a result, the need for efficient and high-throughput flow cytometry systems has increased, propelling the market growth.


Furthermore, the increasing demand for point-of-care testing (POCT) has been a major driver of the flow cytometry market. POCT refers to diagnostic testing performed at or near the patient's location, providing rapid and immediate results. In this context, flow cytometry has gained prominence due to its ability to deliver real-time, high-throughput analysis of individual cells, making it a valuable tool for decentralized diagnostic settings.


As a result of the growing burden of chronic diseases and the shift toward decentralized diagnostics, flow cytometry has an exciting prospect as a key player in the fight against these complex medical challenges.
