Lens On The Scientific Market
Key findings from our industry experts.
February was a busy month for the team at SDi, and it’s only now in mid-March it seems that I can catch a breath to think over our accomplishments. On February 28th, we published the 2020 version of our flagship Global Assessment Report, which provides our market estimates and overall evaluation of the analytical and […]
Politico reported today that CDC Director Robert Redfield said on Tuesday that he is not confident that U.S. labs have an adequate stock of the supplies used to extract genetic material from any virus in a patient’s sample — a critical step in coronavirus testing. The article goes on to quote Michael Mina, MD, PhD […]
Life science instrumentation is the largest category of the instrumentation industry. It consists of 12 technology segments, with an ever-growing range of applications that offer significant opportunities for discovery, innovation, and expansion, while also serving niche research markets. Nucleic acid-based analysis remains at the forefront of research, as does research into gene expression, proteins […]
According to SDi’s recent publication, The 2019 Market for Live Cell Imaging, the total market for live cell imaging instruments, assays, and labeling reagents is projected to reach $1.9 billion in five years with a CAGR of 7.3%.

The medical field is evolving as treatment models shift away from the traditional “one size fits all” approach, which treats the “average” patient. Precision medicine, also called personalized medicine, is gradually becoming the new model for medical diagnosis and treatment. Under this model, treatments are tailored to the individual characteristics of each patient and their […]
Electron microscopy has long been a staple microscopy technology, especially for characterization in the semiconductor industry as well as for other materials. However, new technological innovations combined with emerging industries have opened the door to new applications where electron microscopy is likely to be of significant demand for the long-term. According to SDi’s recent The […]
Single-use chromatography is a relatively new separation technology that hails from the bioprocessing industry. Single-use products, such as disposable filter capsules and single-use bioreactors, were initially applied to the upstream sector of bioprocessing to reduce cleaning time and minimize contamination. As the downstream sector also requires a sterile separation process, single-use applications also expanded towards […]
While China and Japan are the darlings of Asia Pacific, the rest of the region poses a promising growth opportunity. Korea and Singapore are already players on the world stage, but Southeast Asia with its rapid growth is just starting to flex its economic muscles. SDi took a look at this regional market in its […]
