Executive Summary

Total Market Overview
• Global sales of next generation sequencing (NGS) informatics products and services generated approximately $X million in 2012 and will reach $X million in 2018 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of X% from 2012 to 2018. Revenue growth is primarily driven by sales of tertiary data analysis tools employed for biological interpretation and clinical reporting.
• More than X% of NGS informatics revenues come from customers in translational biomedical research organizations including academic institutions, government agencies, and biopharmaceutical companies.
• More than X companies participate in the NGS informatics market. These companies fall into X of X categories:
- Traditional information technology vendors and companies provide big data solutions. These companies entered the NGS informatics market with computing or storage products (e.g., EMC Isilon, IBM, Dell).
- Sequencing technology vendors offer their own informatics solutions that are developed specifically for their platforms (e.g., Illumina, Life Technologies).
- Sequencing services providers offer bioinformatics as a component to their overall service offering (e.g., BGI, Beckman Coulter Genomics).
- Informatics tool vendors, many that entered the market in the late 1990s, provide solutions for analyzing microarray data, (e.g., Ingenuity Systems, Partek, DNASTAR).
- Also included are laboratory information management systems (LIMS) vendors (e.g., GenoLogics, Sapio Sciences).
- NGS informatics consulting services providers (e.g., BioTeam, Eagle Genomics) are included.
- Recent market entrants offer bioinformatic solutions (software, cloud-based platforms, and pre-loaded appliances) developed specifically for NGS applications (e.g., DNAnexus, Knome, Real Time Genomics).
