Cell sorters, based on innovative cell separation approaches and novel technologies, account for more than 45% of the total number of cell sorting products currently available in the market. Examples of innovative cell sorters include AcouTrap, C1™ System, Cytonome Viva™, LeviCell System, LumiSort™, Namo™ Single Cell Dispenser, Radiance™, Sefia S-1000, WOLF® Cell Sorter, and X-BACS™.

Microfluidics-based sorting technologies currently dominate the market, representing over 30% of novel cell isolation techniques 
Stakeholders claim that such products provide the most suitable micro-fabricated channels that actually allow for faster detection of single cells. Other advanced cell sorting principles include magnetophoretics, optoelectronics, buoyancy-activated, and acoustofluidics.

Currently, the major application areas of cell isolation technologies is genomic analysis and cancer diagnostics
More than 65% of the companies are presently developing products and solutions for use in genomics and transcriptomics-related applications. Further, around 30% of the companies have developed cell sorting solutions for use in cancer research, and diagnostic development.

3,000+ patents have been filed / granted since 2014
Since 2014, more than 500 patents have been filed / granted each year across the globe, with close to 850 patents in 2018, alone. It is worth highlighting that around 60% of the patents were filed / granted in the US.

Around 47% of published scientific articles were focused on the study of circulating tumor or fetal cells 
Several players in this filed are developing innovative products and solutions for isolating other cell types, such as blood cells, especially white and red blood cells; more than 50 articles that we came across were related to such efforts.

Close to USD 1 billion invested by both private and public investors, since 2014
Around USD 210 million was raised through venture capital financing, representing around 25% of the total capital raised in the given time period (till March 2019). Further, there were over 10 instances wherein firms have raised capital through IPOs / secondary offerings, accounting for more than USD 360 million in financing.

240+ partnerships established between 2014 and 2019 
This activity in this domain has increased at a CAGR of close to 40%. In fact, more than 75% such agreements have been signed since 2016, with the maximum reported in 2018. Majority of the aforementioned agreements were observed to be focused on R&D, or licensing of novel cell sorting products and solutions.

North America and Europe anticipated to capture over 80% of market share by 2030
Given the existing and anticipated demand across niche and emerging application areas, we expect the novel cell sorting products and solutions market to grow at an annualized rate of ~11% over the next decade. In addition to North America and Europe, the market in China / broader Asia Pacific region is also anticipated to grow at a relatively faster rate.
