Report : Middle East & Africa Fluorescent Immunoassay Market Forecast to 2028 – COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis – by Product Type (ELISA, Rapid Lateral Flow Immunoassay, and Others), Application (Infectious Diseases, Oncology, Cardiovascular Diseases, and Others), and End User (Hospitals & Clinics, Diagnostic Centers, Pharmaceutical & Biotechnology Companies, Academic & Research Institutes, and Others) 

At 2.7% CAGR, the MEA Fluorescent Immunoassay Market is speculated to be worth US$ 109.74 million by 2028, says Business Market Insights              

According to Business Market Insights’ research, the MEA fluorescent immunoassay market was valued at US$ 91.36 million in 2021 and is expected to reach US$ 109.74 million by 2028, registering an annual growth rate of 7.0% from 2021 to 2028.  Increase in development of fluorescent dyes and instruments and extensive usage in cancer diagnostics are the critical factors attributed to the market expansion.                

Fluorescent dyes or fluorophores have been widely used as probes (for physical and structural parameters), indicators (e.g., for molecular concentrations), or labels/tracers (e.g., for visualization and localization of biomolecules) in various bioassays. Therefore, the development of fluorescent dyes, accompanied by appropriate devices and their applications, has had a significant impact in healthcare sector. New technologies, materials, and devices have been developed to efficiently detect and utilize fluorescence signals in biological samples. The need for sensitive yet inexpensive diagnostic tools has led to new strategies to enhance the fluorescence signal of diagnostic assays, including improving the surface immobilization of biomolecules, increasing the density of fluorescent labels per binding event, and improving the optical properties of fluorescent reporters. One way to enhance fluorescence performance is to develop fluorescent dyes with improved brightness, photostability, quantum yield, and Stokes shift. Fluorescent labels have also been used to create homogeneous immunoassays by various techniques. Fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) is an organic fluorescent dye and probably one of the most used in immunofluorescence and flow cytometry. It can be coupled to various antibodies using its reactive isothiocyanate group, which binds to amino, sulfhydryl, imidazolyl, tyrosyl, or carbonyl groups of proteins. FITC was one of the first dyes used for fluorescence microscopy and served as a precursor to other fluorescent dyes. Its fluorescence activity is due to its extensive conjugated aromatic electron system, which is excited by the blue light spectrum. Therefore, due to the increase in the development of fluorescent dyes and instruments, the fluorescent immunoassays market is expected to grow in the near future.

On the contrary, disadvantages of fluorescent immunoassays hurdle the growth of MEA fluorescent immunoassay market.
