Life Science Software: Markets and Opportunities

Published: September 2012
No. of Pages: 102
   

Biopharm Reports has carried out six studies in the life science field, which examined the use of specialist software and databases relating to the conduct of PCR, DNA sequencing, DNA microarray, flow cytometry, mass spectrometry and disease biomarker studies. These studies, which involved the participation of more than 2200 end-users in 70 countries, were carried out to assist software developers and vendors to identify market opportunities in these fields.
 
Background
 
The last two decades have seen unprecedented advances in technologies and applications in the life science field. Techniques such as PCR, DNA microarray, DNA sequencing, mass spectrometry and flow cytometry have driven discoveries that have changed our understanding of the world. Today, techniques such as these are indispensable to the laboratory and by 2015, markets for these five areas alone are expected to exceed $50 billion, globally.
 
But, none of these developments would have been possible without parallel developments in computing and software. Together they provide the systems that allow the high volumes of complex information that these technologies generate, to be handled. Scientific and clinical needs have driven the development of a multitude of data handling, software, databases and bioinformatics platforms. But, despite the many products available, end-users are often restricted in what they can do due to software limitations. Markets are also changing, which demand new software solutions.
 
New Report
 
Biopharm Reports has published a new report on the use of software and databases in the life science field. This is the outcome of six global studies involving more than 2,200 end-users in the PCR, DNA microarray, DNA sequencing, mass spectrometry, flow cytometry and disease biomarker fields. These finding provide substantial information on end-user practices and opportunities in these markets.
 
This Report Provides:
 

  • Software and Databases: A breakdown of end-user practices in the use of software and databases (including software/database market brands or in-house) in the conduct of PCR, DNA microarray, DNA sequencing, mass spectrometry, flow cytometry and disease biomarker studies.
  •  Fields: A breakdown of end-user practices in the use of software and databases (including software/database market brands or in-house) by field (biotechnology, chemicals, clinical or hospital, defence, diagnostics, energy, environmental, food and drink, forensics, geology, government, healthcare, natural products, pharmaceuticals, research institutes, security and university) in the conduct of PCR, DNA microarray, DNA sequencing, mass spectrometry, flow cytometry and disease biomarker studies.
  •  Regions: A breakdown of end-user practices in the use of software and databases (including software/database market brands or in-house) by regions (Europe, North America, Asia and Rest of World) in the conduct of PCR, DNA microarray, DNA sequencing, mass spectrometry, flow cytometry and disease biomarker studies.
  •  Growth: A listing of organisations of participants in the PCR, DNA microarray, DNA sequencing, mass spectrometry, flow cytometry and disease biomarker studies described in this report, according to their anticipated growth in these areas, (i.e. decline in activities, activities remain the same or increase in activities).
  •  Market Sizes: Estimates of global markets sizes of software and databases used in the PCR, DNA microarray, DNA sequencing, mass spectrometry, flow cytometry and disease biomarker fields. These estimates are based on published market sizes of these fields, and the present study findings described in this report.
