The market is segmented into two major areas, namely, the genomics and proteomics
reagent kits market and the genomics and proteomics analytical tools market. The reagent
and research kits segment deals with the products used in sample preparation, purification
and isolation, electrophoresis, lab-on-chip applications, and biochips or microarrays. In
terms of analytical tools segment, the market is segmented into four major analytical
tools, namely, chromatography, mass spectrometry, thermal cyclers for PCR applications and
next generation sequencers. Till the beginning of 20th century the only available
techniques for protein purification were precipitation, crystallization and filtration.
Today, chromatography and gel electrophoresis are the most commonly used purification
techniques – they isolate proteins on the basis of its characteristics such as solubility,
size, charge and binding affinity.

Other technologies such as mass spectrometry, biochips, next-gen sequencers, and
polymerase chain reaction techniques have empowered researchers to create very large
quantities of data in short time. The next generation sequencing market is highly
consolidated with very few market players due to extremely complicated technologies
involved and the low target audience for the systems as of today. The cost of expensive
next-gen sequencing systems may exceed into millions of dollars for installation,
maintenance, reagents and output analysis. Most respondents have suggested sequencing as a
service business rather than an investment for in-house research. Introduction of
bench-top sequencer enabling ease of use to researchers is also expected to push the
growth further. With progress in technology a genome can be sequenced for less than USD
1000, as compared to several billions that cost the Human Genome Project about two decades

The market accounts for commercialized ready-to-use research kits to carry out various
processes such as purification, electrophoresis, chromatography and polymerase chain
reactions. Every step of sample preparation is critical as it is associated with the
success of protein sequencing and expression. In order to simplify the process at each
step vendors operating in this market offer a wide variety of protein sample preparation
kits which are able to remove salts, denaturants, detergents and other buffers present in
the crude mixtures easily and quickly.
