The global outbreak of COVID-19 has fueled the demand for antibody test laboratories, clinical research labs, vaccine development labs, and the establishment of in-vitro diagnostics facilities. Chronic disease blood sample testing and treatment have seen a surge as individuals suffering from any chronic disease such as kidney problems or cancer are more prone to the virus. This is further expected to increase the use of magnetic beads, hence, positively contributing to the market growth.

The market for magnetic beads is expected to witness notable growth on account of the increasing demand for healthcare products. For instance, ease of operations, rapid result, and direct-to-consumer testing further facilitate the adoption of in-vitro diagnostics. Moreover, the increasing trend of point-of-care (POC) outside the laboratory or at the doorstep, coupled with the increasing population and high-scale spreading of chronic diseases, is expected to promote the usage of magnetic beads.

Favorable government standards and policies in the U.S. are also anticipated to boost magnetic beads market growth in the coming years. For instance, in vitro devices have been defined in section 201(h) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and as biological products subject to section 351 of the Public Health Service Act. Additionally, healthcare spending in the U.S. is likely to witness an increase because of advancements in medical technologies, rising medical equipment prices, and increased demand for medical services from the aging population.

Nanomaterials such as magnetic beads possess physicochemical properties that vary from general bulk materials, which make them an ideal material to be used in multiple applications in nanomedicine. Technological advancements in the medical industry have led to the emergence of nanomagnetic and radio-frequency induction treatments, which, in turn, are anticipated to drive the demand in medical applications. Hence, the rising adoption of nanomaterials in curing tumors is also projected to augment market growth.

The market for magnetic beads exhibits a huge potential for growth on account of continuous research & development activities over recent years. The growing popularity of magnetic beads coupled with diversified applications in several industries such as genetic research, diagnostics, and pharmaceuticals superparamagnetic properties is expected to drive the market.
