Metabolomics Market Overview

The global metabolomics market is projected to achieve a lucrative growth rate during the forecast period due to the increased government and private funding in research and development, and rise in metabolic application in personalized medication. The market is led by instruments, in terms of size, majorly attributable to the fact that metabolomics instrument is extensively used while following the various steps of the experimental protocol. Metabolomics bioinformatics tools and services are expected to witness the faster growth in future, as it facilitates simpler analysis and data interpretation of widely available biological data.

Metabolomics has wide application in various field, these include biomarker discovery, drug discovery, toxicology testing, nutrigenomics, functional genomics, personalized medicine, and others. The biomarker discovery was the largest application area of metabolomics in 2016, due to to the rise in prevalence of chronic diseases on the global level. Additionally, the extensive oncological research with inclination towards study of new biomarkers and its cancer application drives the larger contribution of biomarker discovery in the market.

Among different clinical indication, cancer is the largest contributor to the metabolomics market. This is mainly due to the global rise in prevalence of cancer, and the increasing oncological research activities. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), cancer has been the second leading cause of deaths globally, and accounted for 8.8 million deaths in 2015. Other clinical indications for metabolomics are cardiovascular disorders, neurological disorders, inborn errors of metabolism and others.

North America is the largest market for metabolomics products and services, mainly due to the factors such as presence of large number of funding from government and private bodies, and availability to technologically advanced products, with the dominance of some of the key players in the region. Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth for the metabolomics market during forecast period. The major factors driving its growth are increasing healthcare and R&D expenditure, rise in adoption of technology for clinical applications, and the growing focus of major players to explore the untapped market.

Metabolomics Market Competitive Landscape

The key players have been focused in the enhancement of their product portfolio, by forming partnerships. to increase metabolomics market share.
For instance, in June 2017, Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. (Thermo Fisher) and Biocrates Life Sciences AG announce the launch of a ready-to-use kit for accurate metabolic phenotyping on high resolution mass spectrometry instruments. Under the co-marketing agreement, both the companies will jointly promote and market the combined use of the kit and Thermo Fisher's Q Exactive high-resolution, accurate-mass (HRAM) platform of mass spectrometers.

In July 2017, Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. and SRI International, announced the results of their collaboration to enhance small molecule research. The results of the agreement enable researchers to combine the results of high-resolution Orbitrap LC/MS experiments with highly curated, and organism-specific metabolic pathway and genome data for quick and effective mass spectrometry-based small molecule research and analysis.

Some of the other key players in the global market include Agilent Technologies, Inc., Danaher Corporation, Waters Corporation, Shimadzu Corporation, Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc., Bruker Corporation, Human Metabolome Technologies Inc., Metabolon, Inc.
