 The applications market includes primary screening and secondary screening, target identification and validation, toxicity studies, compound profiling and other applications. High content screening can be applied in both primary and secondary screening, although it is extensively used for the secondary screening process. In target identification, HCS is used to identify novel targets through the screening of cellular pathways. HCS can also provide more accurate information related to drug toxicity and mode of actions that helps in further decision making and helps to drive the progress of drug discovery. The other application of HCS is in studying cell signaling pathways. The primary and secondary screening market dominated the high content screening applications market, with a market share of 50% in 2013.

 The major factors driving the growth of the market include the need for determining the level of toxicity in the early stages of drug discovery pipeline, government support for cell-based research, and the introduction of enhanced informatics solutions and improved image analysis instruments. Moreover, the adoption of HCS for primary screening and its application in the development of personalized medicine are key growth opportunities in this market.
