Surface Plasmon Resonance Market Propelled by Artificial Intelligence and Machine


Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) is a label-free optical biosensing technique which detects and analyses biomolecular interactions in real-time. SPR offers high sensitivity allowing for direct measurement of binding affinities and kinetics without the need for any modification or labeling of the samples. The technique is widely used for drug discovery, fundamental bioscience research, food safety testing and many others.

The global Surface Plasmon Resonance Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 976.1 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.5% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:
The increasing adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) capabilities in SPR technologies is expected to be a major trend in the surface plasmon resonance market during the forecast period. AI and ML help optimize data analysis from SPR systems and accelerate the drug discovery process. They have the potential to identify novel interactions, analyze complex binding studies with mixtures of compounds, and establish structure-activity relationships much faster than conventional analytical approaches. With AI and ML powered SPR systems, researchers can gain novel biological insights from large and complex datasets in a short period of time. This significantly enhances the drug discovery and development workflow.
