On the basis of source, the mice segment holds the highest market share during the forecast period

Based on the source, the research antibodies market has been categorized into rabbits, mice, and others. Mice accounted for the largest share of the global research antibodies market, by source, in 2022. Mice have traditionally been the host of choice to produce monoclonal antibodies and as a second host against primary rabbit antibodies. These animals offer the advantage of easy production compared to animal use and economic considerations. Such cost-effectiveness of mice as a primary source of antibodies makes this segment the higher share holder.

On the basis of technology, the flow cytometry segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period

On the basis of technology, the research antibodies and reagents market is segmented into western blotting, flow cytometry, ELISA, Immunohistochemistry, Immunofluorescence, Immunoprecipitation, and other technologies. During the forecast period the flow cytometry segment is expected to witness the highest growth. One of the major advantages of flow cytometry technique is its ability to perform simultaneous multi-parameter analysis on single cells within a heterogeneous mixture. It offers a high throughput and the automated quantification of cell features. These factors, along with technological innovations in flow cytometry and its growing applications in cancer research, are driving the growth of this segment.

On the basis of application, the proteomics holds the highest market share during the forecast period

On the basis of application, the research antibodies and reagents market is segmented into proteomics, drug development and Genomics. In 2022, Proteomics held the largest share of the global research antibodies and reagents market. The increasing importance of proteomic studies in various fields (such as cancer biology, developmental and stem cell biology, and medicine) and the need for the remedial treatment of life-threatening diseases (such as respiratory infections, neurological conditions, and tuberculosis) have led many government agencies to promote proteomics research actively, thus promoting market growth.

On the basis of end user, the pharmaceutical & biotechnology holds the second highest market share during the forecast period

The research antibodies and reagents market is divided into the pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies, research laboratories and Contract Research Organizations. In 2022 the pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies held the second largest share of the global research antibodies and reagents end-user market as pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies require antibodies for prognostic, predictive, or diagnostic identification and the quantification of biomarkers in drug discovery and development.

By Region, The Asia Pacific region is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period

During the forecast period (2023 to 2028), the Asia Pacific research antibodies and reagents market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR. Owning to high growth potential, many manufacturers are extending their global manufacturing bases to the APAC. With their low-cost manufacturing advantage, manufacturers consider China and India the most profitable manufacturing and R&D locations. This is contributing to high growth rate in the Asia Pacific region.
