Global miRNA Sequencing & Assay Market Expected to Reach $343 Million by 2024 - Leading Players are Illumina, Thermo Fisher Scientific, QIAGEN, New England Biolabs, and Takara Bio

DUBLIN, March 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The "miRNA Sequencing and Assay Market by Product (Library Preparation, Consumables), Technology (Sequencing By Synthesis, Nanopore, Ion Semiconductor Sequencing), End User (Research Institute, Academia, CRO), Region - Global Forecast To 2024" report has been added to's offering.

The miRNA sequencing and assays market is projected to reach USD 343 million by 2024 from USD 182 million in 2018, at a CAGR of 11.2%.

The miRNA sequencing and assays market is driven by various factors such as the advantages of miRNA sequencing over other technologies, increasing research funding for genomics, and the decreasing cost of sequencing. However, the dearth of skilled professionals is expected to limit market growth to a certain extent.

Based on product, the miRNA sequencing & assays market is segmented into library preparation kits and sequencing consumables. Sequencing consumables dominated the market with a larger share in 2018. The large share of this segment can primarily be attributed to the repeat purchases of kits due to their high requirement and the high costs compared to library preparation kits.

By technology, the miRNA sequencing & assays market is segmented into sequencing by synthesis, ion semiconductor sequencing, SOLiD, and Nanopore sequencing. The sequencing by synthesis segment dominated the market with the largest share in 2018 due to the technological advancements in sequencing by synthesis platforms and the reduced cost of sequencing.

The APAC miRNA sequencing and assays market, particularly in China, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, and India is expected to witness high growth in the next five years. The rising R&D funding for life sciences research, rapid growth of its life sciences industry, increasing adoption of NGS for miRNA analysis are the major factors driving the growth of this market.

The key players operating in the miRNA sequencing and assays market are Illumina (US), Thermo Fisher Scientific (US), QIAGEN (Germany), New England Biolabs (UK), and Takara Bio (Japan). A majority of the leading players in the market focus on both organic and inorganic growth strategies such as collaborations, partnerships, acquisitions, and agreements to maintain and enhance their market shares in the miRNA sequencing & assays market.
