Flow cytometry is a technique used to identify the characteristics of a cell or a particle using a laser beam. Flow cytometry is used in various research and development activities and it also has applications in medical diagnostics. The growing adoption of new technology, increasing use of flow cytometry in diagnostics, and increasing applications of flow cytometry in pharmaceutical research and development are the major factors driving the growth of the global flow cytometry market. Additionally, increasing R&D spending and aggressive strategies adopted by the top players, such as new product launches, are contributing to the growth of the market. For instance, in January 2016, Sysmex America Inc. has introduced New CyFlow monoclonal antibodies in the market, this new reagent was introduced in the American market which will be available for use in academic as well as clinical research and commercial manufacturing.
The high costs associated with flow cytometry instruments and reagents, lack of awareness about applications of flow cytometry and a shortage of technicians may hamper the growth of the market during the assessment period.
Some of the key players in the flow cytometry are Beckman Coulter, Inc., Becton, Dickinson and Company., Danaher., Thermo Fisher Scientific, Merck KGaA, Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc., Luminex Corporation., Miltenyi Biotec, Sysmex Partec GmbH Agilent Technologies, Inc., Sony Corporation, Biomérieux S.A., and Enzo Biochem Inc.
