The global molecular weight marker market is expected to reach a value of USD 1.1 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Increasing investment in R&D by companies including biotechnology and biologics is the major factor that drives the growth during the forecast period. These markers are used by researchers and companies for various applications such as polymerase chain reaction (PCR), northern blotting, southern blotting, and molecular cloning. Thus, the increasing application of these products in R&D is expected to boost growth.
Increasing focus on molecular biology research is another major factor supporting the growth of the molecular weight marker market. Molecular biology research is important to understand interactions between the different systems of a cell, including DNA, RNA, and protein biosynthesis & regulation. Thus, these research activities are very high in developed countries and are growing at a high pace in developing countries including China and India. Hence, there is a growing demand for molecular weight marker for research activities, which is expected to fuel the growth.
