The Biochips Market Outlook and Analysis by Type, by Technology , By End User-Forecast Till 2030

As per the latest report furnished by Market Research Future (MRFR), the global Biochips Market held the value of USD 7,300 million in 2017, with the growth rate of the market predicted at 11.6% over the forecast period (2022-2030).

The biochips market refers to the global industry that produces and sells small electronic devices designed for use in medical and biological research. These devices, also known as microarrays, allow scientists to analyze and measure the presence and activity of biological molecules, such as DNA, RNA, and proteins, within a sample.

The global biochips market is expected to experience significant growth in the coming years, driven by factors such as the increasing demand for personalized medicine, rising prevalence of chronic diseases, and the growing use of biochips in drug discovery and development.

Growth Drivers and Challenges

Microfluidics and Microarray technology have revolutionized the field of scientific research by reducing costs as well as time required for conventional laboratory-based approach of research. Microfluidics provide various benefits like reduced assay costs owing to need for less amount of sample in nano-liter or pico liter volume, increased sensitivity, accuracy, and throughput as compared to traditional laboratory procedures and also reduced labor cost. The products that are based on DNA microarrays, lab-on-a-chip, protein chips, as well as organ-on-a-chip technologies have managed to alleviate the existing problems associated with time and costs in their respective fields. Also, the research and development activities are underway at present, regarding the microarray and microfluidic technologies for numerous applications. This factor will turn out to be a high point for the market growth in the coming years. For instance, in the year 2017, Griffith Institute for Drug Discovery (GRIDD) started the process of developing microfluidic platform to further decrease time and costs needed for research.

To sum it up, extensive research and development in the field is expected to eventually elevate the adoption rate of these technologies. Case in point is the successful demonstration by scientists at Harvard University, which used the paper and threads as an ideal option for cheap microfluidic devices. moreover, integrating electrodes and electrical textile valves into such devices will make it even more useful.

Going forward, the Laboratory of Integrated Bio Medical/Nanotechnology & Applications at the University of Illinois went on to develop a microfluidic POC sepsis chip that has the ability to quantify the total white blood cell counts and CD64 expression levels on neutrophils in just 30 minutes. This was done by using just 10 microliters of a blood sample. As per the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), a microfluidic biochip is capable of isolating single circulating tumor cells, delivering personalized medicine in non-small cell lung cancer patients. The sum of all these factors, including various research and development activities along with the benefits offered by this technology, will prove to be highly beneficial for the Biochips Market share growth in the near future.

Recent News

January 2019 – Swiss scientists have made use of a lab-on-a-chip device for the diagnosis of the neurodegenerative condition i.e. Huntington’s disease, derived from DNA in the blood in just five minutes. This will help predict if the patient has Huntington’s as one region of the gene is mutated, including various repeated code which will make it longer in length compared to the healthy gene.
