Product Type – Segment Analysis
By product type, the competent cells market is classified as chemically competent and electro-competent cells.
Chemically competent cells are treated with calcium chloride to allow DNA to enter the cell membrane. Heat shock method is also used to open the pores of the cell membrane allowing entry of the DNA plasmid. Chemically competent cells are the best solution for general cloning and sub-cloning application. Electro-competent cells uses a process called electroporation to allow permeation of the DNA into cell membrane.
Electroporation is generally more expensive, but has better transformation efficiency. Chemically competent cells take more time for transformation. Thus the electro-competent cells are said to have higher growth rate in the coming years.
End-User – Segment Analysis
On the basis of end user, the competent cells market is segmented into academic research institutes, pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies and contract research organizations. The academic research institutes segment is likely to account for the largest share of the market due to the increased research funding in biotechnological applications.
Application – Segment Analysis
Based on application, the competent cells market is dominated by the cloning segment. DNA cloning uses a process known as bacterial transformation in which the bacteria takes up the genetic material. This process is widely used in various molecular biology applications. The growing support and investments from government has led to the growth of this segment and it has a CAGR of 6.8%.
Geography – Segment Analysis
North America accounts for 33% of the Competent Cells market share in 2019. This is owing to the amount of research occurring in cloning and recombinant protein technology. Asia Pacific segment is likely to be the fastest growing in the coming years as favorable regulations and increased research activities are likely to contribute to the market here.
Drivers – Competent Cells Market
High demand for recombinant proteins technology
Genetic engineering and biotechnology have widened the scope of healthcare by offering treatments for various diseases that were previously not possible.
