Research and Markets: Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Report 2013: How are NGS Technologies Revolutionizing the Way we Think About Healthcare?

10/10/2013 | 10:30am US/Eastern

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/ddm37b/next_generation) has announced the addition of the "Next Generation Sequencing Report 2013" report to their offering.

The Next Generation Sequencing market is poised to reach $4.4B in 2018!

How are NGS Technologies Revolutionizing the Way we Think About Healthcare?

NGS technologies drive the way toward personalized medicine

Our analysis provides 2013-2018 market data, along with player market shares at both equipment and consumable levels. Moreover, positioning strategy of each supplier has been analyzed in the document.

Discover the NGS market's complex organization, splitted in four segments

The market segmentation is a tool used to provide a vision of the market. Based on technical and economic criteria, fours segments have been identified: research, forensics, diagnostics and consumer.

Until recently, uses of Next Generation Sequencing tools were limited to research (human whole genome, exome, small genome, targeted, transcriptome, RNA profiling, chIP-Seq, metagenomics).

Nowadays, NGS technologies have found applications mainly in two fields: clinical diagnostics and forensics.

Our investigation describes both current and future applications.

Next Generation Sequencing technologies overview

  • In April 2003, human genome project was declared complete. This first human genome sequencing took 13 years, mobilized 20000 researchers and cost $3B!
  • Since the early 2000s, sequencing technologies have come a long way from Sanger sequencing (also called 1st generation sequencing) used for the human genome project to the Next Generation Sequencing technologies available today.
  • By sequencing a large number of DNA molecules in parallel after PCR amplification, technology developers have been able to sharply increase machine throughput by a factor of 10, along with a steep price reduction.
  • The launch of a new detection method based on electrochemical detections was also a huge step forward for the sequencing world.
  • Today, based on these new technologies, we can sequence the whole human genome in less than three hours with one laboratory technician and a total cost around $1000.
  • Technologies under development are poised to extend the boundaries with a targeted sequencing cost of $100.
  • All technologies currently in use and those under development are presented in our report. Benchmarking is also presented for eight different sequencing applications.

New opportunities arise for cartridge makers

  • The wide adoption of NGS technology has changed the way NGS suppliers are generating revenue. A shift occurred in the sales mix, moving from instruments to consumables which have a higher gross margin than instruments.
  • This leads to an increase in revenue based on consumable sales.
  • The number of NGS Platforms used worldwide will exploded in the next several years and the run time will continue to decrease. Therefore, the market of NGS consumables will follow.
