SCOPE OF REPORT
The study scope includes the major biochip technologies that are likely to become commercialized within the next 5 years. Each technology is analyzed to determine its market status, impact on future market segments, and forecast growth from 2009 through 2014. Technology issues and market driving forces are discussed. Influencing factors including large-scale integration, microfluidics, nanotechnology, large-scale biochip, genomic and proteomic research initiatives, cancer diagnostic and treatment trends, and drug discovery and development needs are discussed.
BCC presents an analysis of each of the key market segments that will be commercially important during the next 5 years: research tools, drug discovery and development, diagnostics, next-generation DNA sequencing, biodefense, food safety, and forensics.
Based on our analysis, we evaluate the potential applications of biochips in each of the major market segments, and forecast sales revenues for 2009 through 2014.
BCC examines biochip companies and industry alliances, and the impact of large-scale biochip-related projects on the market growth. We also examine patent strategies within the industry. A total of 143 companies are profiled.
Both primary and secondary research methodologies were used in this market study. For research tools and drug discovery and development, the study presents a forecast from 2009 through 2014 for each of the important products and technologies. For DNA microarrays, the study forecasts market size by application and analysis type. For diagnostics, the report forecasts from 2009 through 2014 the demand for biochips by chip type and by indication, as
