Press Release

DNA sequencing market expected to double to $6.6 billion by 2016

March 28th, 2012

Global Information Inc. is pleased to announce a new market research report, "DNA Sequencing: Emerging Technologies and Applications" by BCC Research, as well as remaining available registration for the Sample Prep 2012 Conference in San Diego, CA.

DNA Sequencing: Emerging Technologies and Applications

The value of the global market for sequencing products and services is forecast to more than double to a value of $6.6 billion by 2016, growing from nearly $3 billion in 2011 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.5% according to BCC Researchs new market research report DNA Sequencing: Emerging Technologies and Applications.

The sequencing products market can be broken down into three segments: instruments and consumables, services, and workflow products. Instruments and consumables accounted for nearly $1.6 billion in 2011 will reach $2.2 billion in 2016. Services were valued at $987.6 million in 2011 and are expected to increase at a remarkable CAGR of 29% to reach $3.5 billion in 2016. Workflow products, worth nearly $410 million in 2011, should reach $883.6 million in 2016 at a CAGR of 16.6%.

Life science research tools suppliers will find this report particularly valuable, as will pharmaceutical, diagnostics, nanotechnology, bioinformatics, semiconductor, and biotechnology companies. Also, companies seeking to benefit from genome sequencing projects, microarray companies seeking an entry into the sequencing market, informatics companies who wish to expand their market reach, and in vitro diagnostics companies who want to add sequencing platforms to their portfolios will also find valuable insights in the full report.

5th Annual Sample Prep International Conference 2012

Sample Prep 2012 is the fifth annual event in an internationally recognized series for experts in sample preparation for detection and identification of viruses, toxins and pathogens. This conference will address the major issues and current state-of-the-art in the technologies related to the important phases of real-world sample preparation such as sample collection, lysis, target extraction, and transfer to analytical modules.

New and novel robust sampling and bioforensic techniques will be discussed with in the contexts of to biodefense, field and point-of-care biomedical and clinical applications, food and water testing, and environmental and agricultural sampling. A panel of leading experts from government, academia and industry will also address topical issues and areas of focused technology development and implementation including sample prep with microfluidics; sample prep-on-a-chip; alternative sample prep technologies for viruses; toxins & pathogens; sample prep as separate vs. integrated module approach; nanotechnology challenges for sample preparation; robust sampling methodologies; food, water, air, and environmental sampling; novel methods of extraction from tough (non-filterable) matrices; single use sample concentration modules; advanced lateral flow assays for sample prep; nucleic acid or protein based sample prep for next generation sequencing; and sample prep technologies for detection/diagnostics vs. pharma.

Limited registration for Sample Prep 2012 is available through Global Information Inc:
