Western Blotting Market Analysis

According to the data published by the World Health Organization in 2022, approximately 39 million people are living with HIV of which 6,30,000 people died of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)-related illness. Hence, the rising prevalence of HIV has led to huge demand for western blotting tests. Western blotting test is always preferred over the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) test for detecting HIV, owing to its greater accuracy in detecting HIV antibodies in the patient’s blood. However, ELISA is prescribed by healthcare professionals for HIV screening. The technique helps in confirming the HIV infection in the patient’s body. Although this testing tool is much more complicated as compared to ELISA, it delivers more accurate and effective results in detecting HIV.

Western Blotting Market Overview

North America is the largest market for Western Blotting market growth with the US holding the largest market share followed by Canada. Factors such as the increasing prevalence of HIV, increased R&D investment by pharma and biotechnology companies, and increasing application of western blotting technique, which is anticipated to further propel the overall North American Western Blotting market.
