STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
The core objective of the report is to provide an in-depth analysis of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) market with respect to key market trends, competitive intelligence and market forecasts. The report also aims at providing key decision-making parameters such as new product launches, market strategies, key application areas to support the market estimates, and forecast data. The report also aims at providing key analysis and strategic recommendations derived from intensive primary and secondary research.
REASONS FOR DOING THIS STUDY
Increasing demand for technologies supporting early and accurate diagnosis of life-threatening diseases, such as cancer, is driving the market for PCR. Additionally, investment in research is increasing with respect to gene therapy, the Human Genome Project (HGP), etc. Despite the economic recession, these investments are further driving the growth of the PCR market. PCR is increasingly being applied in key research that is expected to solve numerous medical mysteries and breakthrough technologies supporting drug discovery. Hence, it is crucial for market participants to understand the growing opportunities and changing market scenarios across the globe. This report therefore aims at providing such crucial information, which will enable companies in this market to make informed decisions.
Key stakeholders of the report include key decision makers such as CEOs, VPs, AVPs, marketing heads, research heads of the PCR manufacturers, technology providers, software providers and service providers. The report would also be useful to existing biotech instrumentation players looking to enter high-growth markets. End users, such as healthcare, pharmaceutical and drug discovery companies, may also use this report to understand the level of adoption and technology types used in this environment. Universities and consulting firms may derive in-depth market intelligence with respect to the PCR market holistically.
