Impact of COVID-19

The current global digital PCR market comprises kits and assays, system, and reagents and consumables. The unexpected crisis of the pandemic has surged the demand for essentials and increased the demand for digital PCR products. There was increased demand for digital PCR from biotechnology and life sciences companies. Overall, the impact of COVID-19 on the global d-PCR market size has been low-moderate. Some market players have reported a slight decline in sales. However, some new entrants in the global d-PCR market are expected to witness growth in the market. There is also a decline in revenues mostly due to the initial phases of the COVID-19 pandemic, which comprised complete lockdowns across countries and major cities, thereby interrupting the supply chain. Several other products have been under development for years that may take longer than 2-4 years for commercialization. The pandemic has played a key role in enhancing the growth prospects of digital PCR-based diagnostics and is expected to indirectly aid in improving the market growth outlook.
