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
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
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
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
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
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.
