How COVID-19 affected the growth of the market?

Biosensors are integrated devices that provide analytical information using biological samples and are used to identify the structure and function of molecules, such as DNA and protein, and for medical diagnosis. Moreover, the early symptoms of COVID-19 have been scanned using a variety of methods, including usage of sensor. Through smart band, optical sensor, wearable sensor, cell-based sensors, and nano-sensor usage, the biosensor systems can aid in diagnosis of COVID-19. Additionally, various manufacturers provided rapid arrangement for clinical surveillance to help healthcare personnel reduce the risk of exposure and manage patients effectively during COVID-19.  For instance, in May 2020, Royal Philips stated that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) given its wearable biosensor (Philips Biosensor BX100) authorization to help manage positive and suspected COVID-19 patients in hospitals. In addition, this biosensor improves clinical monitoring, allowing clinicians to recognize risk early and improve care for patients. Thus, biosensors market was positively impacted owing to increasing demand for wearable biosensors in-home care diagnostics, development of more sensitive and reliable biosensors for COVID-19 diagnosis by industry players, and rising prevalence of COVID-19.

Rising electrochemical biosensors adoption in various industries is accelerating the market growth.

The electrochemical biosensors ubiquitous use in biochemical and biological processes for measurement and analysis purposes. With wide linear response range, excellent stability, repeatability, robustness, compatibility with new microfabrication technologies, ease of operation, low cost, disposability, independence from sample turbidity, and others, the electrochemical biosensors usage increases among people. It has several advantages over piezoelectric, thermal, and optical detection, resulting in higher market penetration and consumption. In addition, indirect monitoring through electrochemical biosensors can be done to analyze organic pesticides or inorganic substances that interfere with the biocatalytic properties of the sensor. It involves the monitoring of heavy metals, cyanide, and others having high importance in industries and environments.

Recent strategic developments in Biosensors market

The biosensors market has undergone several significant developments, and a few of these have been mentioned below:

  • In May 2020, Philips launched next-generation wearable biosensors for early detection of diseases, including clinical surveillance for COVID-19. Moreover, the biosensor is designed to address a new approach to vital signs measurements, supporting surveillance of higher acuity patients moving from intensive care units into lower acuity general care areas of a hospital.
  • In September 2020, Abbott introduced Libre Sense Glucose Sport Biosensor, a glucose sport biosensor designed for athletes to continuously measure glucose in order to better understand the relationship between glucose levels and their athletic performance. The FreeStyle Libre continuous glucose monitoring technology underpins the Libre Sense biosensor, which was originally developed for people living with diabetes. It was the first personal-use gadget based on that technology that isn't just for diabetes.
  • In December 2020, Bio-Rad Laboratories expanded its joint marketing agreement with Siemens Healthineers. As part of the agreement, Bio-Rad provided quality control products and unity quality control data management solutions for Siemens Healthineers’ Atellica Solution platforms.
