High Content Screening Market: Top Trends and industry overview to watch for in [2021-2031]

The global High Content Screening Market has been growing as a result of the rising demand for cell visualisation and quantification using cutting-edge technology. According to a study by Future Market Insights (FMI), the market is expected to reach a valuation of US$ 1.5 Bn by the end of 2021, driven by rising application in pharmaceutical and biotech companies. According to the study, the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries will account for more than 31% of the market’s demand in 2021.

For the discovery and development of new drugs, high content screening is used. Over the forecast years, rising research into novel drug candidates and target identification & validation is anticipated to drive uptake of high content screening. In addition, it is anticipated that continued efforts to produce high-quality, technologically advanced cell imaging systems will spur demand over the course of the forecast period.

However, the COVID 19 outbreak severely hampered the research and development efforts. The market is anticipated to suffer as a result of this. Nevertheless, it is anticipated that the market will grow in the upcoming years due to key manufacturers’ growing investments in the creation of advanced cell imaging products.
