STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
This BCC Research report, Life Science Tools and Reagents: Global Markets, provides an overview of the current overall state of the life science tools and reagents industry, existing products on the market, and a detailed analysis of the competitive environments, including new potential markets for novel products and assay development. This study includes information about significant players, trends, and obstacles and other information affecting the market for research tools and reagents in the life science sector.
REASONS FOR DOING THIS STUDY
Reagents and research tools used in the life sciences are essential parts of routine laboratory research. The discovery of the PCR (polymerase chain reaction) is one of the best examples where a technical method opened a new era of molecular biology, and its significance was acknowledged with a Nobel Prize in 1993.
Yet, despite such contributions and its importance in biomedical research, potential investors often overlook the life science tools industry. It is important to understand that this market follows different business models as compared to the pharmaceutical industry. While pharmaceuticals need more financial leverage and time to develop successful drugs, reagent development is less risky. Reagents companies develop various strategies to grow and expand their activities, offering new outlooks on biotechnology and pharmaceutical market development. In addition, scientific trends, government policies, and the economy in general affect this industrial market differently as compared to pharmaceutical and drug discovery ventures. For example, the launch of new reagents or products is not affected by strict FDA guidelines.
This report highlights the main segments of the life science tools and reagents industry and its major market participants, including current and future market trends. Drivers and challenges in each segment of this industry will be discussed in detail, including forecasts for the next 5 years.
SCOPE OF REPORT
This report is essentially a business tool that can help market players evaluate new commercial opportunities in the life science tools and reagents market. The geographic scope of this study is global. This market is complex and consists of many different segments, each of which is affected differently by scientific and technological developments. This report identifies the main positive and negative factors affecting each segment, and forecasts market growth, future trends, and product and assay development in every major segment of this market.
METHODOLOGY AND INFORMATION SOURCES
Both primary and secondary research methodologies were used in preparing this study. Initially, a comprehensive and exhaustive search of the literature on drug discovery and already marketed products was conducted. These secondary sources included drug discovery and science-related journals, textbooks, press releases, marketing literature, other product/promotional literature, annual reports, security analyst reports, and other publications. A patent search and analysis were also conducted.9
In a second phase, a series of semi-structured interviews was conducted with company representatives, bench scientists, marketing representatives, and other personnel at biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies. Other sources included academics, technology, and consulting companies. Subsequent analysis of the documents and interviews notes was iterative.
Dr. Marianna Tcherpakov has more than 7 years experience as a bench scientist specializing in biochemistry, cell biology, and industrial assay development. She has contributed to a number of scientific publications and holds several patents. She has expertise as an assay development scientist and is familiar with different research field trends and likely future developments.
