Product Insights

Kits and reagents held the largest share of over 65.10% in 2021. This can be attributed to the vast availability of these products in the market space, novel developments, and continuous product launches from key players, which was further fueled by the rising number of SARS-CoV-2 variants. For instance, PerkinElmer announced the launch of NEXTFLEX Variant-Seq SARS-CoV-2 Kit v2 in December 2021 for disease surveillance and enhancement of sequencing throughput and reliability for variant identification. The company further launched this kit, which is compatible with the Illumina platform, which further increases its utilization rate.

With the continuous growth of cloning technology as a routine laboratory practice along with increasing scope in molecular biology, enzymes are anticipated to witness the fastest growth in the forecast period. This has allowed the manufacturers and suppliers to provide multiple enzymes for nucleic acid manipulation. The presence of different sources of enzymes such as ligases, polymerases, nucleases, methylases, phosphatases, and topoisomerases for cloning applications has resulted in the advancement of cloning techniques. Moreover, efforts are taken by companies for developing novel and advanced enzymes. For example, in November 2021, Novozymes and Novo Nordisk collaborated to develop specialty enzymes for applications in biopharmaceutical production processes and are expected to launch new products within the next few years. Hence, all this will influence the lucrative growth of enzymes in the market.
