Biosensors Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Agriculture Industry - Many agricultural applications, including evaluating soil and crop toxins and identifying and diagnosing infectious diseases, can benefit from the use of biosensors as they can detect disease outbreaks early on and provide ongoing monitoring and are considered one of the main advances in human civilization, which produces crops and raises livestock to meet the needs of humans for food sustainably.
  • Growing Utilization in the Oil and Gas Sector- Gas and oil are essential to modern living, and their safe production is essential therefore the industry has made extensive use of sensing technology to monitor a range of petroleum production processes, including exploration, fracking, pigging, well drilling, completion, and decommissioning.
  • Increasing Need for Environment Monitoring- The kind and concentration of pollutants in an environment can be ascertained with the help of biosensors, which are promising for on-site monitoring and continuous real-time environmental data collection.
  • Surging Demand for Food- Biosensor instruments are becoming one of the most important diagnostic tools for food surveillance as they can be utilized to monitor food processing, identify naturally occurring poisons and antinutrients, look for genetically engineered organisms, and are utilized to calculate the number of acids, alcohols, and carbs in fermented foods. For instance, by 2050, the world's food demand will increase by more than 24%.


  • High Cost of Development - The high cost of biosensors owing to specific equipment needs has hindered the biosensor technology's development in recent years. One of the main factors anticipated to restrain market revenue growth is the high initial cost of research and development which is impeding the adoption of the product. For instance, the R&D expenses for developing a novel biosensor are still very substantial, ranging from USD 45-50 million and requiring over 5 years for development.
  • Complex technology can make it challenging to develop efficient biosensors
  • A stringent regulatory process may increase the overall cost of the production

Biosensors Segmentation

Technology (Electrochemical, Optical, Piezoelectric, Thermal, Nanomechanical)

The electrochemical segment is predicted to account for 73% share of the global biosensors market by 2036. owing to the growing usage in point-of-care diagnosis. The discipline of point-of-care (POC) sensing is one of the most promising and emerging areas in identifying and measuring health indicators, as a result of which medical biosensors have been growing in importance.

One common type of sensing device that converts biological events into electrical impulses is the electrochemical biosensor which provides a means of directly sending a biological change variation to a signal that is being monitored, allowing for an examination of the contents of any organic material. To identify biomarkers in the field of clinical diagnosis, electrochemical biosensors are particularly important in the development of quick and point-of-care diagnostic systems for important analytes, including glucose, lactic acid, cholesterol, uric acid, blood ketones, hemoglobin, neurotransmitters, amino acids, soluble gases, and immunoglobulin.

Application (Medical, Food Toxicity, Bioreactor, Agriculture, Environment)

The medical electronics segment in biosensors market is set to garner a notable share shortly. Biosensors offer efficient tools for the early detection and diagnosis of a wide range of diseases, including cancer enabling early detection, personalized treatment, and improved prognosis. Biosensors for infectious disease diagnosis enable the detection of pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, and parasites, facilitating timely intervention and infection control measures.

Biosensors integrated into wearable devices enable continuous monitoring to provide valuable insights into patient health. Wearable sensors can track parameters such as heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, and temperature, to offer personalized health metrics and to improve disease management and quality of life for patients.

Furthermore, biosensors play a crucial role in drug discovery, development, and therapeutic monitoring by facilitating the evaluation of drug efficacy, toxicity, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics in preclinical and clinical settings. These devices enable researchers to assess biomolecular interactions, receptor-ligand binding kinetics, enzyme activities, and drug concentrations with high sensitivity and specificity.
