The global Whole Exome Sequencing Market is segmented on the basis of technology,
products and services, applications, end users, and geography. Based on technology, the
Whole Exome Sequencing Market is divided between sequencing by synthesis and sequencing by
ion semiconductor. Based on products and services, the Whole Exome Sequencing Market
comprises instruments/platforms/sequencers, kits, sequencing services and data analysis
services. Whole exome sequencing kits are further classified into DNA fragmentation, end
repair, A-Tailing and size selection, library preparation kits and target enrichment kit.

Based on applications, the Whole Exome Sequencing Market is segmented into
diagnostics, drug discovery and development, personalized medicine, and agriculture and
animal research, among others. The market, by end users, is classified into research
centers, academic and government institutions, hospitals and clinics, and pharmaceutical
and biotechnology companies.

Based on geography, the market is divided into North America, Europe, Asia, and Rest
of the World (RoW). North America is the largest market for whole exome sequencing,
followed by Europe and Asia. The Asian market is slated to grow at the highest rate over
the next five years.


Over the years, the demand for whole exome sequencing instruments, kits and services
is likely to increase. Factors such as the rapidly decreasing costs of sequencing,
adoption of WES technology by new consumers, strategic alliances amongst key players and
research institutes, and increase in utilization of WES technology for new scientific
applications are driving this demand for whole exome sequencing. The most important factor
increasing the preference of WES over whole genome sequencing is its low-cost sequencing
capability. However, a lack of skilled professionals and high reliability on government
grants are some of the factors hindering the growth of the WES market.

Major players in the global Whole Exome Sequencing Market include Illumina, Inc.
(U.S.) Life Technologies (acquired by Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc.) (U.S.), Roche
NimbleGen, Inc. (U.S.), Agilent Technologies (U.S.), BGI (Beijing Genomics Institute,
