Global Western Blotting Market (2015 - 2021): North America has the largest market followed by Europe

Persistence Market Research Pvt. Ltd is released new forthcoming report on title "Western Blotting Market: Global Industry Analysis and Forecast to 2020".
Published 10 August 2015

Western blotting is a technique used in cell and molecular biology that helps to detect and analyze a specific protein molecule from a mixture of proteins. It is done by using specific antibodies. Western blotting technique is used by pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, diagnostic laboratories, research institutes and others. In western blotting technique, a mixture of proteins is separated based on molecular weight and type, using gel electrophoresis. Western blotting technique involves three steps including gel electrophoresis, membrane transfer and blocking. After separation of proteins by size and transfer to a solid support, the target protein is marked by using a proper primary and secondary antibody for visualization. Western blotting is also known as immunoblotting due to the use of antibody to detect its antigen. Western blotting is used in various applications including diseases diagnosis, agriculture, biochemical, biomedical research and others.

North America has the largest western blotting market followed by Europe, due to government funding, increasing production of genetically modified crops and advanced technology in biotechnology and research sector in these regions. Asia is expected to experience high growth rates for western blotting market in next few years due to increasing incidences of HIV infections, growing biotechnological and pharmaceutical industry in this region.

Increasing uses of western blotting in antibody validation, technological advancement, growing proteomics market and dramatic increase in HIV prevalence are some of the key factors driving the growth for global western blotting market. In addition, increasing spending in research and developments is driving the western blotting market. However, emergence of alternative technologies and high cost of primary antibodies that are used in this technique are some of the major factors restraining the growth for global western blotting market.

Emerging markets in the developing countries, such as India and China, hold great potential growth of western blotting market in Asia. In addition, broadening of application areas of western blotting technique would develop opportunity for global western blotting market. However, high level of care required for producing reproducible, accurate and reliable results could lead a challenge for western blotting market. Some of the major companies operating in the global western blotting market are Advansta Inc, GE Healthcare, Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc., Merck Millipore, Assay Horizons, Inc., PerkinElmer Inc., LI-COR, Inc., Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., Roche Diagnostics, Sigma-Aldrich Co. and ProteinSimple.
