Research and Markets


) has announced the addition of the

"Global Next Generation Sequencing Market Report"

report to their offering.


The analysts forecast the Global Next Generation Sequencing market to grow at a CAGR of 20.78 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increased adoption of next generation sequencing by new customers. The Global Next Generation Sequencing market has also been witnessing an introduction of new DNA sequencing products and accessories. However, the logistical problems could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

The report, Global Next Generation Sequencing Market Report, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market in the Americas, and the EMEA and APAC regions; it also covers the Global Next Generation Sequencing market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

With the expansion of the customer base to less sophisticated customers, access to improved bioinformatics tools is becoming even more of a priority. Sequencing companies started to seriously tackle this issue: in 2012 Life Technologies unveiled Ion Reporter, a commercial cloud-based variant analysis software package and purchased Compendia Bioscience.

Illumina launched BaseSpace Apps, a dedicated application store for BaseSpace, its genomics cloud computing platform. In addition, Illumina secured the buy-in of bioinformatics companies such as Golden Helix, Biomatters, Ingenuity, Station X, and Spiral Genetics, on top of collaborations with Diagnomics, Ingenuity, and Knome.

According to the report, the growth of the Global Next-generation Sequencing market is driven by several factors, the most important of which is the increased adoption of next-generation sequencing technology by new customers.

Further, the report states that one of the key challenges in the market is the low adoption of genomic technology compared to other sequence analysis technologies, especially among large biotechnology companies. This is mainly because of logistical problems such as instrument complexity, problems in data storage, automation, and sample preparation.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
