Nucleic Acid Isolation and Purification (Plasmid DNA Isolation, MIRNA Isolation, Total RNA Isolation) Market - Global Forecasts to 2018

May 01, 2014, 13:02 ET from Research and Markets

DUBLIN, May 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Nucleic Acid Isolation and Purification Market by Technology, Consumables & Instruments, Application & by End Users - Global Forecasts to 2018" report to their offering.

The global market is expected to grow at a CAGR of close to 8.11% between 2013 and 2018, to reach $3,106.28 million by 2018. Nucleic acid isolation and purification is often the first step in most molecular biology techniques like cloning, sequencing, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and others.

The isolated nucleic acids find applications in fields such as genetic engineering, life science research, molecular diagnostics, and forensics. It is an important part of the global genomics market. Furthermore, this market is expected to benefit from the rapid growth in life science research and genomics markets. The report provides a granular understanding of this market by identifying emergent technologies and changes in the user base and charting the product developments in this market. This report segments the global nucleic acid isolation and purification market by technology, application, product, end user, and geography.

The technology segment is further divided into column-based, magnetic bead-based, reagent-based, and other (glass fiber and anion exchange) technologies for DNA and RNA isolation and purification. Magnetic-bead technology for DNA isolation is the fastest-growing segment in the nucleic acid isolation and purification technology market.

The application segment is further divided into blood DNA isolation and purification, genomic DNA isolation and purification, micro RNA isolation and purification, mRNA isolation and purification, plasmid DNA isolation and purification, total RNA isolation and purification, and PCR cleanup. Micro RNA isolation and purification is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

On the basis of products, the market is classified into consumables and reagents. Consumables dominated the market in 2013. However, the instruments segment is expected to grow in coming future owing to increased applications in hospitals and diagnostics.

The end-users market is segmented into academic research, hospitals and diagnostic centers, pharmaceutical and biotech companies, contract research organizations, and others (forensic and food testing laboratories). Academic research accounted for the largest share in this market. However, the hospitals and diagnostic centers segment is expected to grow in the near future owing to the increased applications of nucleic acid testing in molecular diagnostics.
