What Will Thermo Fisher Scientific and Life Technologies $14 billion Merger hold for the Top Ten Suppliers of Synthetic Biology Technology and DNA Sequencing Landscape?
Date:4/15/2013

FARMINGTON, Conn., April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Life Technologies, one of the top ten suppliers of synthetic biology technology, recently merged with Thermo Fisher Scientific. The lab equipment company bought Life Technologies for $13.6 billion in cash and $2.2 billion in debt. What are the implications this merger has for the DNA sequencing industry? In a recent Forbes story, Matthew Herper reports "As a result of all of this competition and new technologies, DNA sequencing has gotten cheaper with incredible speed. In 2007, it cost $1 million to create a human genome. Now some insurers have reimbursed doctors about $20,000 for sequencing all of a patient's DNA."

Top Ten Suppliers of Synthetic Biology Technology

The recent merger between Thermo Fisher Scientific and Life Technologies means changes in the landscape for the rest of the nine leading suppliers of synthetic biology technology – DNA2.0, Origene, Synthetic Genomics, DuPont, Pfizer, Novozymes, Amrys Biotechnologies, Scarab Genomics, and British Petroleum – profiled in BCC Research's recently published report. The document examines these top companies in the field and discusses their positions in these complex patterns of supply and demand, as well as their investments and alliances.

Intense research and development continues to be both privately and publically funded, but the work has emphatically moved out of the laboratory and into the marketplace. Major corporations are putting new intellectual properties to work in new factories in the U.S. and abroad.

The players on this new field include new companies that come directly out of university research riding large holdings of intellectual property and established multinational giants that have the networks necessary to distribute and market the new materials.

Between these two ends of the spectrum, companies are emerging that can intermediately supply the substances and services that bridge the gaps. The result is intricate patterns of interconnection between layers of the new supply chains. Acquisitions up and down these supply chains are frequent, as capital is freely available due to the obvious potential.

Global DNA Sequencing Products Market 2012-2016

The global DNA sequencing product market is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 18.48 percent between 2012 and 2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the introduction of whole genome sequencing. The Global DNA Sequencing Products market has also been witnessing an increase in the number of DNA sequencing projects. However, the low adoption of genomic technology could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
