Serum Free Light Chain Assays (sFLC) Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Sample Type (Serum, Plasma, Urine), By End User (Hospitals, Clinical & Pathology Laboratories, Others) Others and Regional Forecast, 2021-2028

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI102087 | Status : Ongoing



In March 2018, Sebia, one of the prominent players in multiple myeloma monitoring and diagnostics market, announced the launch of its new generation serum free light chain assays, Sebia FLC Lambda and FLC Kappa. The newly launched assays are incorporated with an advanced Enzym Linked Immunosorband Assay technology, enabling simpler diagnosis and monitoring of multiple myeloma for healthcare professionals. Serum Free Light Chain Assays is a laboratory-based procedure used to identify an individual’s blood group. Immunoglobulin light chains circulating serum in an unbound state are called free light chains (FLCs). Each immunoglobulin light-chain molecule encompasses of approximately 220 amino acids in a single polypeptide chain which is folded to form constant and variable region domains. The serum free light chain assays are widely used in diagnosis of multiple myeloma and different plasma cell disorders. Diagnosis and monitoring of multiple myeloma (MM) are related conditions and commonly performed by urine and serum protein electrophoresis and immunofixation testing methods.

Key Market Driver -

Increasing incidence and prevalence of the multiple myeloma

Key Market Restraint -

Stringent government regulations

The factors expected to drive the serum free light chain assays (sFLC) market are increasing incidence and prevalence of the multiple myeloma. Multiple myeloma (MM) is a hematological malignancy, with an estimated incidence of 4.4 per 100,000 people per year globally. For instance, according to the World Health Organisation, multiple myeloma (MM) accounts for 0.8% of all cancer deaths globally. Moreover, higher efficiency of the test for diagnosis of multiple myeloma is projected to drive the global serum free light chain assays market during the forecast period.

However, stringent government regulations in developed, as well as developing countries, are anticipated to hamper the growth of the global serum free light chain assays market by 2026.
