Electroporation Instrument Market

Electroporation Instruments Market Estimated To Witness High Growth Owing To Preference Towards Minimally Invasive Surgeries

by

The Electroporation Instruments market is estimated to be valued at US$ 242.41 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.4% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:
Electroporation instruments are used for creation of temporary pores or permeabilization in cell membranes through application of short pulses of high-intensity electric fields. The process is known as electroporation. It finds applications in cellular therapies, stem cell therapies, DNA vaccination, and gene editing and therapy. The key products include consumables like cuvettes, electrodes, reagents and software & instruments.

Market Dynamics:
Rising prevalence of cancer and infectious diseases is driving the demand for electroporation based therapeutics and diagnostics which is fueling the growth of electroporation instruments market. For instance, according to WHO, cancer burden is expected to grow to 27.5 million new cases and 16.3 million cancer deaths by 2040. Further, minimally invasive electroporation surgeries are gaining traction over conventional surgeries owing to faster recovery time and reduced postoperative pain and complications. This is augmenting the adoption of electroporation instruments.

Additionally, key players are focused on development of advanced electroporation instruments with enhanced efficiency, safety and usability. For instance, in 2022, Maxcyte launched next generation ExPERT AT electroporation platform with enhanced capabilities to deliver pulses with microsecond precision and modulate pulse waveforms. Such product innovations are positively impacting the market growth.

However, high costs associated with electroporation instruments and lack of skilled professionals may hinder the market growth over the forecast period.
