Single Cell Technology Competitive Landscape Report 2022: 38 Main Players Accounted for $860 Million in 2021

DUBLIN, Dec. 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The “Comprehensive Single Cell Technology 2022” report has been added to’s offering.

Research and Markets Logo

The market size is ~ $0.86 billion USD in 2021, at a CAGR of ~28% when calculated based on the main 38 companies only.

The global single-cell technology (SCT) market has emerged since the mid-2010s. The SCT is defined as any cell biology research tool that provides single-cell resolution handling and data sets, for example, single-cell (SC) picking up/dispensing, SC sequencing, and SC-protein analysis technologies.

There are 58+ commercial SCT products from 52 companies and over 30 pre-commerce-stage startups to enter the market in the next few years. Primarily, the SCT market is young and complex: over 75% of the products were launched within the last 7 years. Over 70% of the market players are less than 10 years old startups. It is also characterized by its wide range of technology mixtures and various types of users. 

The market share is highly concentrated on the four major companies 10x genomics, Fluidigm, BD biosciences, and Berkeley light, yet this market share can change as the market is expanding with more players. Here, we identified the commercial SCT products and segmented by the technical principles (picking up, dispensing, droplet-based, microwell-based, etc) and by the five application or functionality spectrums: SC- picking up isolation, SC-dispensing (cell line development), SC (or multi-omics) sequencing, SC- protein analysis, and novel cell characterization.

We also deep dive into the 37 early-stage startups, including 18 spatial biology companies/products. For each startup, we present the company profile, technology description, and target market applications. The report also features a label-free live-cell imaging, microfluidic chip-based flow cytometry, and small liquid dispensing technologies. In total, we introduce +100 new technologies/companies around single cell resolution bioresearch tools.
