STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
BCC Research’s goal in preparing this study was to determine the global market and future demand for sample preparation in genomics, proteomics and epigenomics over the five-year period from 2016 to 2021. Our particular interest was in characterizing and quantifying the market for sample preparation in genomics, proteomics and epigenomics by product, end user, geographic region and application.
We also evaluate the market by segmenting it into instruments, consumables, accessories and sample preparation kits. Factors that impact the market for sample preparation have been discussed in detail. Key market dynamics in each regional market worldwide has been discussed in detail. Aspects that affect each subsegment, the drivers, restraints, threats and opportunities have been discussed. Our key objective was to present a comprehensive discussion of where the state-of-the-art is in sample preparation and forecast the future commercial potential for the key market segments.
This discussion will provide a basis for companies to make strategic choices in developing new products and markets, or deciding which segments to focus on to achieve the highest growth. The study will benefit sample preparation companies, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, laboratories and service providers, end users, governments around the world, healthcare agencies and others.
REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY
The completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003 later served to have a major impact on the market for genomics, proteomics and epigenomics. The cost of sequencing has decreased significantly, and there has been rising interest in the fields of genomics and proteomics due to their increasing application in various other fields. Epigenomics is a part of genomics and has recently been applied successfully in cancer treatment. Downstream processing in genomics and proteomics requires a sample that is free of impurities in adequate quantities. Hence, sample preparation for these technologies is as important as downstream processing.
Widespread advancements in scientific research have been made due to the completion of the Human Genome Project. There has been a shift from cellular biology to molecular biology—from studying cell as a structure—to studying the structure and function of the macromolecules found within cells (e.g., proteins and nucleic acids). Genomics, the study of genes and their function, and proteomics, the study of proteins, are fields within the study of molecular biology.
Sample preparation refers to a range of activities that precede most forms of scientific analysis. Sample preparation is generally complex, laborious and one of the most error-prone steps within scientific research. It is nonetheless a universal activity among laboratories whose requirements drive a large and growing market, worldwide. The global market for sample preparation in genomics, proteomics and epigenomics is an interesting market as advances are occurring rapidly. The market is continually evolving to increase the speed and accuracy of sample preparation. Automation and miniaturization are shaping the industry. The market for sample preparation in genomics, proteomics and epigenomics is highly fragmented with many large and small companies such as U.S.-based Agilent Technologies Inc., Bio-Rad Laboratories and Danaher Corp.
