The scope of the report includes clinical NGS technologies, applications, industries, initiatives, patents and companies. The markets for NGS-based diagnostics are given for the years 2012, 2013 and 2018.
This report reviews the main sequencing technologies and explains why genetic variation is important in clinical testing. It then discusses some of the top research initiatives that are contributing to clinical NGS applications. Market driving forces are also discussed.
The report examines the markets by test complexity, indication and test purpose. Test complexity refers to the multiplexing (e.g., the number of genes covered) and coverage (e.g., the extent to which the genome is covered) of the test. Examining the market by test complexity provides valuable insight into which products (e.g., sample preparation, NGS instrument, informatics) will be in demand in the future.
The report provides market data and forecasts for NGS diagnostics by specific applications, including those for cancer, rare diseases, common diseases, and pre- and post-natal screening.
Specific geographic markets are discussed, including North America, Europe, China, Japan and the rest of the world.
Market data covers the years 2012, 2013 and 2018.
Industry sectors analyzed include NGS instruments, target enrichment, informatics, clinical laboratories and the prenatal screening industry.
