Single Cell Genomics (SCG): Market Size, Segmentation, Growth, Competition and Trends (2nd Edition)

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 population. The second 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-generation-sequencing, 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, China, Asia-Pacific, ROW). For each of these segments, we provide an estimated market size and growth from 2010 to 2020, 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. 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, and 2) lack of short-term clinical applications Special analysis conducted in this report includes the categorization of ~1,000 SCG peer-reviewed publications from 2009 to 2015.
