DNA/RNA Purification Market 2020: New Life Science Dashboards™ From Percepta Project Unit Growth in the Dynamic $1.6 Billion Research Market in North America and Europe

Qiagen’s dominant position remains with leadership in fifteen of the eighteen nucleic acid purification segments surveyed

CARLSBAD, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today Percepta Associates released its 2020 DNA Purification, Series 1, Life Science Dashboard™ and 2020 RNA Purification, Series 1, Life Science Dashboard™ reports. These reports update findings from Percepta’s previously published 2016 Nucleic Acid Purification Dashboard. 2020 reports see the addition of several new granular research product segments including cell-free DNA and RNA extraction. These updated Dashboards reveal that modest growth is reported for both DNA and RNA segments with an overall reported increase in a combined market size of over half a billion US$ since 2016 and projects total revenues of US$1.7 billion in 2021. Cost/isolation has increased for most DNA subsegments but has decreased for 5 of 6 historic RNA sub-segments since 2016. Nucleic acid preparation for next-generation sequencing (NGS) continues to be a strong double digit driver of growth in the DNA isolation segment, with price/isolation largely stabilizing since last reporting.

The market leader Qiagen leads in 15 of the 18 research product segments surveyed. This leadership position is entrenched in 9 of the 10 segments surveyed in the DNA purification market and in 3 of the 8 RNA purification segments surveyed. Other key suppliers in specific segments include Thermo Fisher Scientific, Illumina, Promega, Bio-Rad, Macherey-Nagel, Zymo Research and MilliporeSigma/Merck.

Percepta reports over 50% of users are interested in switching products in cell-free RNA extraction, microRNA purification and NGS library prep for DNA segments. Drivers of switching are revealed in this new report.
