Immunofluorescence Assay Market Scenario


The Immunofluorescence Assay market is expected to reach an approximate CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period. The increase in biological studies in research and development for detection of biomolecules like proteins, glycans, and small biological and non-biological molecules of various diseases drives the market growth. Immunofluorescence Assays are used for rapid and sensitive diagnostics of various chronic diseases like cancer, autoimmune diseases, infectious diseases like HIV, neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease and chronic diseases like cancer. Immunofluorescence assay is a primary detection test used for patients suspected with autoimmune disease.


According to National Institutes of Health (2012), autoimmune diseases are most prevalent among other diseases, and 23.5 million people in America suffer from autoimmune diseases, whereas 9 million people have cancer. Furthermore, according to Alzheimer's Association in 2018, 5.7 million Americans are affected by Alzheimer’s disease.  Thus, such high incidence of autoimmune and neurological diseases and increasing government funding enhances the growth in this market. Also, growing demand for rapid and precise measurement of biomolecules, increased use of Immunofluorescence Assay for diagnostic and research purposes, increased R&D activities and advanced technology are the key factors for the market to grow.


However, factors such as expensive diagnostic kits, chances of cross contaminations, shortage of skilled labor and weak detection signals are expected to restrict the market growth during the forecast period.
