Tiangen, Qiagen and Life Technologies Emerge as Leading Suppliers in Chinese Nucleic Acid Purification Market According to Percepta

However, many second tier suppliers exist, illuminating a markedly different competitive landscape in China in comparison to less fragmented US and Europe markets

CARLSBAD, Calif.--()--Percepta Associates announces release of its Series One Nucleic Acid Purification (China) Life Science Dashboard™ market research report revealing Tiangen, Qiagen and Life Technologies as leading suppliers. Fifteen nucleic acid purification (NAP) market segments analyzed in this report include: DNA/RNA library prep for next generation sequencing, RNA/DNA isolation from cells or tissue, whole blood and FFPE samples, plasmid DNA prep, mRNA, microRNA, gel extraction and post-reaction cleanup. Six additional companies emerged as second-tier NAP suppliers: Corning/Axygen, BioTeke, Illumina, Promega, Roche and TaKaRa/Clontech.

“Major differences exist in the Chinese NAP research market such as the competitive landscape, distribution/dealer channels, percent usage by customers, and propensity to switch suppliers for 15 product segments analyzed,” said Cijian Feng, Market Research Associate for East Asia. “We do not see anywhere near the same level of market entrenchment in China for suppliers like Qiagen, Life Technologies and Illumina as we observe in the US or Europe.”

Designed and executed by individuals with practical industry experience, this report contains strategically grounded findings and recommendations that simplify business planning and guide you in a more competitive direction into important and emerging market segments with confidence and certainty.

Findings are based on survey responses obtained from 449 academic and commercial research scientists predominantly located in China from our leading proprietary panel of active life scientists. Key market indicators for each of 15 product segments detailed in the report include:
