Introduction & Scope

INTRODUCTION

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
This report is an update of an earlier (2008) BCC Research report on the worldwide electrophoresis industry. This report will determine the current status of the electrophoresis industry and assess its growth potential through 2020. Specific objectives of the report include developing an understanding of the current market scenario for both gel electrophoresis (GE) and capillary electrophoresis (CE) technologies. This report also assesses the growth and market potential for agarose and polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis techniques. As nucleic acid and protein separation are the two major applications, their market potential has also been
examined. The market has been segmented into instrumentation, aftermarket supplies and services; we were interested in monitoring trends in each of these segments. In addition, this report analyzes the electrophoresis industry from end-users’ perspectives.

REASONS FOR DOING THIS STUDY
Electrophoresis has been the method of choice for several decades to physically separate macromolecules such as nucleic acid fragments, RNA (ribonucleic acid) and proteins according to their charge and molecular size. GE and CE technology segments represent widely implemented and powerful analytical separation methods. GE separates macromolecules using a gel-like matrix and has extended the range of geometries available to researchers. GE can be performed both in one-dimensional (1D) and two-dimensional (2D) modes. CE deploys a liquid separation technique using narrow bore, fused, silica capillaries to fractionate molecules. The growing concept of microfluidics is revitalizing CE technology, as the latter is very amenable to microfabrication techniques. BCC Research was interested in examining the impact of lab-on-a-chip electrophoresis on the overall CE technology segment.

Although electrophoresis is a standardized technique, there have been considerable technology advances because of its ever-expanding research applications. Hence, we were interested in monitoring the current state of the industry and the related technology trends. Among the major GE techniques, the polyacrylamide gel (2D PAGE) technique has received immense attention, fueled by the growing field of proteomics.
2D PAGE has a high resolving power to separate posttranslational protein entities. There have been significant technology developments in different product segments such as informatics and gel imaging. BCC Research was particularly interested in investigating PAGE techniques for protein electrophoresis. BCC Research was also interested in examining end-users’ perspectives in various industrial applications that use electrophoresis. Despite the advent of several alternative analytical technologies for separation, electrophoresis is likely to continue to serve as a complementary technology for separating biologically important
macromolecules. BCC Research was thus interested in gaining a complete understanding of the various electrophoresis technologies, major forces governing the product segments and a comprehensive study of competitive structures.

INTENDED AUDIENCE
GE is predominantly used by academia, life science research companies, government research facilities and the biopharmaceutical industry. CE, on the other hand, is widely used by the biopharmaceutical, chemical, environmental, food and forensics industries, along with academia/government research facilities. This study is likely to be of high interest to electrophoresis manufacturers and life sciences research companies. The study is also of potential interest to end users of electrophoresis technologies because it provides insights into the major technology developments and market trends.

SCOPE OF REPORT
The study encompasses major technologies of electrophoresis and the various product segments for each technology. The role of electrophoresis as an analytical separation method for both nucleic acid and protein molecules was examined. The major end-user applications for both GE and CE were also included within the scope of this study. BCC Research analyzes the impact of the two major electrophoresis techniques on
biological molecular separation, determines their current market status, examines their future potential and presents forecasts of growth over the next five years. Technological issues, including the latest trends, are discussed. The latest research findings in different industry areas are presented. BCC Research presents the industry competitiveness for electrophoresis, technological descriptions and issues, applications, market factors, market potential, and revenue forecast projections from 2015 through 2020. Global revenue projections for the electrophoresis market have been developed by the two major technologies and by product segments for every technology. Revenue projections by end-user applications have been included.

BCC Research also examined the electrophoresis industry by regions and conducted an in-depth study on the competitive landscape for every product segment and the corresponding market share analysis for every technology.

INFORMATION SOURCES
BCC Research interacted with over 35 electrophoresis manufacturers specializing in different product segments to obtain data for this study. In addition, data were also compiled from government and other public research data sources.

METHODOLOGY
BCC Research’s methodology for market analysis and forecast projections made in this report encompassed primary and secondary data sources and calculations. Based on interaction with industry stakeholders and experts, we analyzed the potential of GE and CE technologies, product segments, end users, and nucleic acid/protein electrophoresis applications. Revenue projections for the previous segments were developed and corroborated through primary interviews with respondents from participating organizations.
