Across the globe, the adoption of high content screening for primary screening is increasing due to factors such as increased throughput, enhanced accuracy, and ease of use. A number of automated HCS instruments are available in the market. Moreover, market players are engaged in developing new automated HCS instruments with higher throughput, which will help the market grow further.

The factors expected to drive the growth of the market are rising need for cost containment in pharmaceutical R&D, growth in funding for cellular research, and technological advancements in HCS solutions during the forecast period. The increasing number of contract research organizations providing HCS outsourcing services and application of HCS in personalized medicine offer significant growth opportunities in the HCS market. The rising adoption of label-free technologies and growing focus on stem cell analysis are the key trends in the HCS market.

Taking into consideration the growing demand for HCS products, various venture capitalists are now investing in this market. For instance, in November 2011, the Entrepreneurs Fund (U.K.) and Sham (France) invested $10 million in Cytoo SA (France), a company that offers products and services for high content analysis, cell-based assays, and cell screening processes. Furthermore, in October 2011, Kernel Capital invested $1.11 million (€800 thousand) in Biocroi Ltd., a company that develops multi-well microplates for high content screening. In addition, various companies in Europe are focusing on collaborations in order to enhance their expertise in the high content screening technology. For instance, in December 2013, Evotec Technologies (Germany) and QIAGEN (Netherlands) signed an agreement to promote the advantages of combining QIAGEN’s RNAi products with Evotec’s Opera high content screening platform. This will enable researchers to carry out high-quality gene analysis. All these factors have presented an array of opportunities for the high content screening market to flourish in the coming years.
