Switzerland biosensors Market

In recent years, the demand for simple, disposable, user-friendly, and cost-efficient devices with fast response time has increased extensively. Biosensors fulfill all these criteria. These devices are used for the measurement of glucose, urea, creatinine and lactate, using both electrochemical and optical modes of transduction, are being used and commercially developed in laboratories, self-testing, point of care testing, and in glucose monitoring. They find application in various areas of healthcare industry such as cardiovascular, cancer, and diabetes. Rising prevalence of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases globally has led to an increase in the use of biosensors for early detection of these diseases. These devices are ideal for new applications in hospitals, for patients at home, and for caregivers in non-hospital settings.

Technology Insights

Electrochemical biosensors held the largest market share in 2018 owing to widespread application of the technology for quantification and analysis in biochemical and biological processes. It has advantages, such as wide linear response range, low detection limits, reproducibility, and optimum stability leading to higher usage of the devices than other biosensing technologies. Moreover, sensitivity of electrochemical detections and selectivity of biochemical recognition can be achieved by using potentiometric, amperometric, and impedimetric transducers for conversion of chemical signals into electrical signals. Amperometric transducers are the most sensitive and suitable for mass production of electric signals.

Optical biosensors is expected to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period owing to rising demand for the technology in analysis due to its versatile analytical coverage. It is used in fermentation monitoring, receptor-cell interactions, concentration, kinetic and equilibrium analysis, thereby resulting in the segment growth over the forecast period. Various benefits associated with optical biosensors over conventional analytical tools include lack of need for extensive sample pretreatment and capability of specific selection of biological sensing element. This offers the opportunity for development of highly specific analytical devices, which can be employed in real-time analysis of complex mixtures.

Application Insights

On the basis of application, the market has been segmented into medical,food toxicity, bioreactor, agriculture, environment, and others. The medical application segment held the largest market share in 2018 owing to the extensive usage of biosensors in this field.On the basis of medical application, the market has been sub-segmented into cholesterol, blood glucose, blood gas analyzer, pregnancy testing, drug discovery, and infectious disease. These devices are considered an essential tool for the detection and monitoring of a wide range of medical conditions including diabetes and cancer.

Switzerland biosensors Market

Blood glucose testing segment held the largest share of medical application segment in 2018.Rising prevalence of diabetes is a major factor contributing to the segment growth. Blood glucose monitoring is a necessary tool in diabetes management. A series of advanced glucose biosensors have been developed to help maintain normal blood glucose level in patients suffering from diabetes. Furthermore, growing demand for self-monitoring devices has in turn increased the demand for these devices. Such factors has led to the development of small and minimally invasive glucose sensors that measure glucose levels even in outpatient settings.

End Use Insights

PoC Testing biosensors market held the largest share in 2018. Biosensors in point-of-care diagnostics are expected to witness lucrative growth over the forecast period owing to technological advancements pertaining to novel product development, such as ultrasensitive printable biosensors for point-of-care applications, which help in detecting or monitoring biological fluids such as urine, blood, sweat, and saliva. These systems provide users with rapid and accurate results that facilitate early diagnosis and faster treatment.

Food industry is expected to witness the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. One of the key factors contributing to the rapid growth is their ability to overcome various challenges in food processing industry, which includes minimization of costs incurred during hygiene analysis by providing rapid and accurate test results. Rising concerns about detection of allergic components and pathogens in food has resulted in increase in the requirement for rapid food analysis to maintain product freshness and routine monitoring of raw materials, which are some of the applications of biosensors in food industry.
