Microplates are most important tools in the modern day research development activities being carried out by the pharmaceuticals and biotech companies. Microplates are poised to play important role in the future development of drug discovery, cell culture and genome engineering. Microplates costs anywhere between USD 1.25 to USD 10 based on material, type, pigmentation and application area.

Polycarbonate and Cyclo-olefins to Grow at Rapid Pace

Polystyrene, Polypropylene, Others (Polycarbonate, Cyclo-olefins, glass and quartz) are some of the major materials used in the manufacturing of microplates. Polycarbonate and Cyclo-olefins are all set to advance at rapid CAGR of over 5% during the forecast period. While, polystyrene and polypropylene are expected to continue to dominate with highest share throughout forecast period. However, price fluctuations of polystyrene and polypropylene are expected to offer major challenge to the manufacturers. Injection molding is most predominantly used manufacturing process for microplates.

Clear Microplates to Account for Largest Share

Black, White and Clear are major types of microplates based on pigmentation. Clear microplates are widely used in cell culture as well as pharma & biotech research & development activities. It held over 50% share in 2020. While, white microplates are sitting on second place. Black microplates are used to carry out specific research activities.

Screening and UV/VIS Spectroscopy & Immunology to Grow Faster

Cell Culture, Screening and UV/VIS Spectroscopy, Immunology, Storage and Others are major segments based on the application industry. Screening and UV/VIS Spectroscopy & Immunology are expected to lead the future growth of microplates. Increasing investment in research & development by both government and companies driving the demand for microplates. ELISA tests are specifically fueling the demand for microplates. Cell culture is flouring across the world. North America and Europe dominated the cell culture industry and hence accounted for the largest share.
