The world of analytical microchips is the fastest growing technology segment in the life sciences today. The range of applications to which these miniature laboratories may be directed is very broad--covering fields as different as pharmaceutical development, food testing, clinical diagnostics, forensics, and environmental analysis. Moreover, while the number of such products is currently limited, the number of applications is rapidly expanding through the development of significant enabling technologies. Where chips were initially envisioned as carriers of microscopic binding sites for reactive molecules, today these chips are taking shape as miniature analyzers--smaller versions of analytical instrumentation. Newer chip technologies include microelectrophoresis and gas chromatography systems.
U.S. Markets in Analytical Chip Technology reports on the range of technologies currently available and in development, including DNA and protein chip technologies, tissue arrays, cellular arrays, reactive microchips, and more. In addition to the technologies and products in development, the report analyzes emerging applications and their market potential, including genomics, pharmacogenomics, drug discovery, proteomics, diagnostics, genetic family planning, prenatal testing, tissue-typing, agricultural and environmental applications, and food processing applications.
Extensive profiles of the industry’s top 20 participants, product reviews and R&D directions, as well as strategic planning and alliances are also included.
U.S. Market for Microarrays Could Top $5 Billion by 2010
New York, February 12, 2003 /PR Newswire — The rapidly expanding market for microarray technologies could surpass the $5 billion market by the end of the decade, according to a new study released today from Kalorama Information. Furthermore, some segments within the analytic chip market will experience growth in excess of 70% in the coming years.
The study, U.S. Markets in Analytical Chip Technology, predicts that advanced chip technologies will find broad applications across the spectrum of life sciences research and clinical practice in coming decades. However, it is microarray technologies and their use in drug discovery and development that represent the market opportunity in the immediate future.
"We decided to look at the analytical chip market from the perspective of market potential," notes Kenneth G. Krul, PhD, the author of the report. "The status of the current market in terms of revenues is misleading of the potential as a whole because there are so many research-oriented applications that are designed and used as ‘home-brew’ materials, and so many of the targets and projects are not associated with commonly available databases."
The study—which examines in turn DNA/gene, protein, cell, tissue, and microbiology microarrays—notes that the market will involve more than just the microarrays themselves. Proprietary targets on the arrays, proprietary surface technologies for the production of stable microarrays, proprietary custom microarray services, and microarray-based genome/proteome databases and informatics will all be part of the expanding field.
"If one were to believe the publicity surrounding the Human Genome Project, you’d think most of the work has already been done," comments Krul. "To the contrary, the field is just opening up and research opportunities appear virtually limitless at this time."
