Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) October 08, 2012
The global market for sequencing products was valued at $2.3 billion in 2010 and nearly $3 billion in 2011. The market is forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.5% to reach $6.6 billion by 2016. Sequencing instruments and consumables made up the largest market segment in 2011, with revenues of nearly $1.6 billion. The segment is expected to grow to $2.2 billion in 2016, a CAGR of 7.3%. Sequencing services comprise the fastest-growing market segment, totaling $987.6 million in 2011 and expected to each nearly $3.5 billion in 2016, a CAGR of 29.0%.
The goal of this report is to provide a more in-depth look at the top tier DNA sequencing companies as well as some of the second tier companies to look for in the near future, and to note the technological changes within the DNA sequencing industry that are sure to play a role in the years to come.
More specifically, the objectives include identifying companies that are considered the leaders in their field and the technological means these companies are using to exploit their markets and dominate their field.
Key technology points explored include:
- How the NGS (next generation sequencing) benchtop systems will do versus the larger, high throughput systems.
- How well NGS systems will penetrate into diagnostics.
- Which up and coming nanopore-based technologies will emerge and how will this affect market applications.
- How well will sequencing informatics be able to solve the data flood.
- When will mass whole genome sequencing applications emerge.
Other major factors used to determine top companies in the field include:
- Alliance, merger, and acquisition strategy.
- Intellectual property (patent) portfolio.
This study will be of particular interest to life-science research tools suppliers, pharmaceutical, diagnostics, nanotechnology, bioinformatics, semiconductor, and biotechnology companies. It will also be valuable to companies involved in genome sequencing projects, sequencing centers, manufacturers of microarrays, suppliers of molecular diagnostics assays, bioinformatics companies, and cancer researchers and clinicians. As this report is a profiling of top companies in the DNA sequencing field, the main audience should also include executive management personnel and marketing and financial analysts.
The scope of this report is focused on a select 10 companies in DNA sequencing, and the key areas in the field that are driving industry growth allowing these companies to succeed. These areas include Sanger, next-generation, and emerging sequencing technologies; the markets for sample preparation products, sequencing instruments and consumables; and bioinformatics and sequencing services. A key area BCC also explores is industry structure, noting strategic alliances and acquisitions along with pertinent patent information.
