ALBANY, New York, April 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research "Biochips Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2015 - 2023," the biochips market was valued at US$5.70 bn in 2014, growing at a CAGR of 16.9% from 2015 to 2023 to account for US$22.23 bn by 2023.

Biochip technology is extremely complex and superior to the conventional methods that emphasize on manual operations. Biochips help in the automation of complex processes in order to detect gene sequences, proteins, and diseases in human bodies at a relatively short notice. Automation of such processes ensures accurate results, and reduces time and human errors. Automation of processes with the help of biochips has become extremely important as it reflects the efficiency and durability of biochips technology. The automation workflow through the use of biochips is measured in terms of sample processing time, throughput time, and capacity handled. This improves the efficiency of workflow and reduces wastage from manual operations. Therefore, automation of processes with the help of biochips is largely being used and preferred by a large number of consumers, thus driving the growth of the global biochips market. 

Multiple functional units can be integrated and put together in a single chip with the help of biochip technology. These compact biochips allow large-scale production of micro-sized devices, thereby reducing the cost of single unit components. Large scale production and use of compact biochips reduces the overall manufacturing cost of biochips. Compact-sized biochips are in huge demand as compared to the bulky instruments that were used earlier and served the same purpose as biochips. The surge in demand has taken place because a biochip can facilitate multiple analytical and complex protocols rapidly in an inexpensive manner. The obsolete bulky instruments that were used previously were heavy, expensive, and not very accurate in their results. However, start-up companies in the biochips market are facing huge challenges due to regulatory barriers. A lot of companies have the expertise and knowledge to manufacture biochips but due to their lack of experience and exposure, such companies are unable to comply with the government regulations and standards.
