Single Cell Genomics (SCG): Market Size, Segmentation,
Growth, Competition and Trends
Single cell genomics (SCG) is a fast growing, emerging approach in which
genomic technologies (i.e., that assess nucleic acids such as DNA or RNA) are
applied at the level of single cells, rather than at the level of an entire cell
The first edition of this report reviews the market size, segmentation, growth and
trends of the SCG market. We assess the SCG market across 7 segments and
33 subsegments: customer (e.g., academia, biopharma, applied markets,
clinical), workflow step (e.g., cell isolation, sample preparation, genomic
analysis), analytical technology (e.g., PCR, qPCR, microarray, next-generationsequencing,
other), field-of-study (e.g., oncology, basic cell biology, stem cell
biology, microbiology, neurology, immunology, other), application (e.g., genomic
variation, subpopulation characterization, circulating tumor cells, cell
differentiation / reprograming, method, other), product type (e.g., instruments,
reagents) and geography (e.g., U.S., Europe, Japan, Asia-Pacific, ROW). For
each of these segments, we provide an estimated market size and growth from
2009 to 2018, as well as key growth drivers and moderators.
In addition, we review key factors driving future growth including 1) accelerating
interest among scientists given a number of applications that SCG can enable, 2)
launch of new platforms that streamline the historically laborious and low
throughput workflow, 3) development of new protocols and reagents optimized to
improve the amplification of DNA/RNA from single cells for downstream analysis
and 5) adoption of SCG by new customers segments, most notably clinical
laboratories. On the other hand, we discuss several key factors moderating
growth including 1) remaining workflow challenges, including isolating cells from
tissue and recovering DNA / RNA at a high yield, amplifying DNA / RNA with
limited bias and downstream computational analysis, 2) continued funding
pressures for academic customers (currently representing the majority of the
market) particularly in the U.S. and Europe.
Special analysis conducted in this report includes the analysis and categorization
of ~300 SCG publications published since 2007.
