2003/2004 US MSPPSA report on Proteomics Research, Volume Two
140 pages, 88 graphs and tables
Published: April 22, 2003
The Reality of Proteomics Research in the U.S. - Cut Through the Hype and Hearsay with a Fresh Look at Mass Spectrometry & Protein Microarrays
A second report by PhorTech International cuts through the
hearsay and prognostications that have alternatively hyped and denigrated the
proteomics market sector. Based upon measured, primary market research
techniques and painstaking analysis, this new report shows the actual extent to
which proteomics research is carried out today. Projections of future growth are
based upon current users and those who plan to begin working in this field
within the near future. There are now 19,020
This report focuses upon two technologies, mass spectrometry and the use of protein microarrays. In the previous chart, we see the adoption of MS for proteomics across organizational segments.
We also examine the extent to which proteomics researchers will rely upon outsourcing at least part of their workload to specialty laboratories. As can be seen, a third plan to outsource at least a portion of their work. The report does into depth as to the proportion and the nature of the work to be outsourced, areas of research, objectives for proteomics research, and methods for preparing samples.
We conducted an in-depth audit of mass spectrometers used for proteomics research.
We found an excellent growth in the unit placement of instruments over the past eight years.
However, when we examine the major brands placed during this period, we see dramatic shifts in market shares over time. The report examines these changes and identifies winners and losers. The changes in share are backed up with a series of probes looking into supplier satisfaction and ranked performance in key business criteria.
In the previous graph, two manufacturers rise head and shoulders above the rest of the pack in terms of their perceived commitment to the field of MS. Along with measurements for 4 other key ratings, readers will be able to understand the strengths and weaknesses of all leading suppliers.
An in-depth section of the report examines the current and planned usage of protein microarrays for proteomics research. We study various types of arrays, desired detection technologies, .required detection limits, sources of materials, applications, formats, and much more. For example, in the next chart we show the preferred chemically-modified surfaces desired for protein arrays.
Hundreds of verbatim comments are presented and analyzed, providing readers of this report with a wealth of direct feedback regarding desired improvements in mass spectrometers, most important features, reasons for selecting brands, and more. Our clients tell us these sections are the equivalent of spending months in the field talking with customers.
This report is undoubtedly the most comprehensive and realistic
assessment of the current market for proteomics research in the
