Exome sequencing is a technique for sequencing all of the exome and protein-coding genes in a genome. This technique includes selection of the subset of DNA that encodes proteins or exons, followed by sequencing of the exonic DNA using high-throughput DNA sequencing methods. Exome sequencing is used to identify genetic variants responsible for diseases such as Miller Syndrome and Alzheimers disease.
The global whole exome sequencing market is driven by increase in number of R&D activities to fulfill new scientific applications, high adoption of advanced technologies, rise in awareness about whole exome sequencing technology, and high demand for diagnosis of rare diseases. However, lack of skilled professionals and ethical & legal issues associated with these techniques restrain the market growth. Furthermore, the high demand for personalized medicine and development of new innovative products by key players provide numerous opportunities for market expansion in the near future.
The whole exome sequencing market is segmented on the basis of product, technology, application, end user, and region. Based on product, it is divided into systems, kits, and services. Systems is further divided into Hiseq Series, Miseq, and ION torrent platforms. Hiseq series is further bifurcated into Hiseq 2500 and Hiseq 1500. ION torrent platforms is sub-divided into ION PGM and ION Proton. Kits are further sub-segmented into DNA fragmentation, end repair, A-Tailing, size selection kits, library preparation kits, and target enrichment kits. The services segment is divided into sequencing services and data analysis (bioinformatics) services. Based on technology, the market is categorized into sequencing by synthesis, ION semiconductor sequencing, and others. The application segment includes diagnostics, drug discovery and development, personalized medicine, agriculture and animal research, and others.
