“In 2014, the Americas emerged as the largest revenue contributor to the global cell counting market, followed by EMEA and APAC. The major players of this market such as Bio-Rad, EMD Millipore, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Perkin Elmer, Sysmex, Beckman Coulter, and Mindray are developing equipment and reagents, and strengthening their positions globally,” said Barath Padala, one of Technavio’s lead industry analysts for orthopedics and general medical devices research.

“There are several low-cost and portable cell monitoring devices in the pipeline. The development of automated instruments and portable POCT equipment will significantly propel the growth of this market over the next four years,” added Barath.

Some of the major market drivers in the global cell counting market are listed below:

  • Automation of equipment
  • Development of high sensitivity POC testing
  • Penetration in emerging countries

Automation of equipment

Automated cell counters have improved the speed and accuracy of cellular blood analysis. It uses optical light scattering and changes in electrical current. In modern automated hematology instruments, progressive improvements have allowed enumeration and evaluation of blood cells with great accuracy. To reduce costs, manufacturers are developing automated cell counter kits, which do not require reagents or dyes. For instance, Orflo has manufactured MOXI Z Mini automated cell counter kits, which produce repeatable cell counts with 95% accuracy in just eight seconds without the use of reagents or dyes. Automation will increase market growth in hematology laboratories as other technologies will decrease.

Development of high sensitivity POC testing

POC diagnostic tests are favored by hospitals, clinics, and patients due to cost containment. There are many vendors who are developing POCT equipment for cell counting, which further increases its demand in the market. With recent advancements, POC equipment has been made portable. For example, DiaSpect Medical has developed DiaSpect Tm to measure hemoglobin content in the body. This is a palm-sized analyzer that provides laboratory quality performance to screen for anemia. HomeCue, a part of Radiometer Group, offers POCT for common blood tests. Its HomeCue WBC system is portable and gives WBC results, even five-part differentials, in minutes.

Penetration in emerging countries

Many global companies are moving their manufacturing units to Asia due to lower wage rates. Apart from starting their R&D units, big players are also forming co-marketing strategies with distributors in emerging regions. For instance, Covidien had a business strategy to approach and tap emerging markets. It invested close to USD 45 million in its China Technology Center Research and Development facility. This center is expected to help Covidien grow in this market by collaborating with local medical experts in order to design products that meet the needs of the Asian market. Following this trend, many other vendors are expected to invest in the region over the forecast period.
