LONDON, March 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the new report "Global Next Generation Sequencing Market Assessment & Forecast: 2017 - 2021" by SA-Business Research & Consulting Group, Illumina leads the market with more than 75% market share. The global next generation sequencing market was valued at US$ 3,509.6 Million in 2016 and is expected to reach US$ 7,527.0 Million by 2021 growing at a compounded annual growth rate of 16.02%.
Illumina entered the NGS market through the acquisition of Solexa, Inc. in 2006. Since then, the company has introduced numerous variants of the sequencing-by-synthesis (SBS) technology. By far, Illumina has the largest installed base as compared to all other manufacturers worldwide. Illumina has developed strong distribution channels throughout the globe for effective distribution of its sequencing systems. Currently 54% of the company's revenue is generated from the U.S., while 24% and 17% from Europe and Asia-Pacific regions respectively. In 2011, the company opened new office in Sao Paolo, Brazil to target the Latin America region where it has sparse market presence. In 2016, the company signed reseller agreement with GenDx; which allows the company to become a non-exclusive reseller of Illumina products in Benelux, Italy, United Kingdom, Germany and Finland. In 2015, Illumina announced its plans to invest in building a new European headquarters in Cambridge, U.K. This would strengthen its hold on the steadily growing Europe market.
The report also maintains major focus on key player analysis in next generation sequencing market. Next generation sequencing (NGS) technology market is in a constant flux of change due to continuous technology upgrades. At least five companies are currently developing novel NGS technology which may commercialize during the forecast period.
