DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/4kjwcd/life_science) has announced the addition of the "Life Science Reagents Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019" report to their offering.
Chromatography reagents are the most widely used reagent products, thus capturing the highest market share in the overall life science reagents market. Wide use of chromatography in almost every aspect of biotechnology-related research and product development is the prime contributing factor for the dominance of this segment. On the other hand, the market share of electrophoresis reagents is the lowest as compared to other products available in the overall life science reagents market. Technological advancement and increasing initiatives towards the expansion of scope of biotechnology and life science has led to perpetual rise in demand for life science reagents worldwide.
In terms of end users, research and academic institutions are the largest consumers of life science reagents. Technological development and corresponding rise in the number of available skilled labor in emerging economies have widened the scope for research outsourcing in the developing markets of India and Brazil. Processes such as pharmaceutical contract manufacturing and cosmetic product manufacturing constitute the largest commercial consumers of life science reagents. Due to the requirement of high capital investment to perform stability studies, formulation development and phase-I trials, several pharmaceutical companies outsource drug development operations to contract manufacturing companies to focus on their core activities of manufacturing drugs and marketing, thereby controlling the in-house budget.
The global life science reagents market is fragmented in terms of presence of a large number of multinational and local players. The mature market players such as Sigma Aldrich, Abbott Laboratories, Life Technologies, Bio-Rad and others currently dominate this market with their patent protected products and intensive growth strategies of acquiring new market entrants providing breakthrough technologies. In addition, large patent repositories of the established market players restrains the entry and growth of new players in the life science reagents market.
