Multiplex Assays Market Scenario

The multiplex assays market is expected to reach an approximate CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period. An assay which simultaneously measures multiple analysts in a single cycle is known as a multiplex assay. Technological advancement is one of the driving factors for the growth of this market. The rapid development in nanotechnology has taken this to the next level of nanoarray, which represents the ultra-miniaturization version of the conventional microarray. Increasing awareness about the multifactorial nature of various diseases and pathological conditions such as cancer and Alzheimer disease has created a requirement to produce a cost-effective and time-saving measurement of multiple analysts in a single sample. This factor drives the multiplex assays market.

Reproducibility crisis and complex clinical trial procedures for multiplex assay products are limiting the growth of the market.


The multiplex assays market is segmented on the basis of products and services, types, technology, application, and end-user. On the basis of products and services, the multiplex assays market is segmented into consumable, instrument, and software and services.

The multiplex assays market is divided into four major regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the rest of the world. North America accounts for the largest share of the multiplex assays market owing to strong R&D activities in this region. The US is a leading country in biopharmaceutical research and development. The key factors that drive the growth of the market in this region are increase in patient population, the rise in the prevalence of Alzheimer disease, and a significant rise in research and development activities in pharmaceutical companies for the treatment of diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer.  

Asia-Pacific is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Factors influencing the growth of this region include increasing geriatric population, rising prevalence of cataract, and increasing prevalence of Alzheimer disease in this region.

The European region is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to increasing geriatric population included in system illness and chronic infection.

The Middle East and Africa holds the least share in the global multiplex assay market due to the presence of stringent government policies and poor economies.
