Single-Cell Analysis Market

Single-cell technologies allow the examination of differences between individual cells instead of the averaged signal obtained is the case of bulk samples.

Global Single-Cell Analysis Market is estimated at $2.1 Bn (2020) growing at a CAGR of 17.8% through 2020-2025. The expansion of oncology and life science research is the factor driving the market growth.

Single-cell analysis: A potential oncology research tool

Single-cell analysis is emerging as powerful tool for cancer research. It characterizes the molecular state of each tumor cell, enabling exploration of tumor heterogeneity, microenvironment cell-type composition, and cell state transitions that affect therapeutic response, particularly in the context of immunotherapy. The demand for products used in single-cell analysis is projected to increase due to the increased incidence of various forms of cancer and the expansion of cancer research projects.

“Bulk sequencing can explain the most common mutations in tumor, but single-cell DNA multi-omics offer insights on which mutations occur at single-cell level. Drug developers are increasingly using single-cell analysis to prioritize targets and pathways for new therapies, demonstrate therapeutic efficacy, and understand resistance mechanisms” – Global Research Head, Leading Pharmaceutical Company

Investor funding is providing impetus for single-cell technology

Single-cell analysis has become a vital tool for scientific research. Investors are providing funding to companies that are developing products or solutions for single-cell analysis, citing the potential for advancement.

For instance,

  • In November 2021, Singleron Biotechnologies, a start-up company developing single-cell multi-omics products – raised $100 million to ramp up products development and augment international presence.
  • Further, in October 2021, Sphere Fluidics received $40 million to expand international sales activities for its single-cell analysis systems that use proprietary picodroplet technology.
