Research and Markets: Global Biochips Market 2012-2016: Major Challenge for Market is High Cost Incurred in the Implementation of Biochips

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/7thf5x/global_biochips) has announced the addition of the "Global Biochips Market 2012-2016" report to their offering.

The analysts forecast the Global Biochips market to grow at a CAGR of 19.1 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the growing need for high speed diagnosis. The Global Biochips market has also been witnessing the high cost of deployment. However, the increasing outsourcing activities could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

Key vendors dominating this space include Affymetrix Inc., Illumina, Inc., GE Healthcare Ltd. and Agilent Technologies Inc.

Other vendors mentioned in the report are Bio-Rad Laboratories Inc., Biomrieux Sa, Caliper Life Sciences Inc., Cephied Inc., Fluidigm Corp., Life Technologies Corp., Cybrdi Inc., Gamida For Life Group, Origene Technologies Inc., Perkinelmer Inc., Roche Nimblegen Inc., Sigma Aldrich Corp, Isu Abxis Co. Ltd, and Us Biomax Inc.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the Hardware team said: ''Over the years, numerous drug manufacturers have been outsourcing their drug development processes to contract research organizations. Outsourcing activities reduce manufacturing and distribution costs, ensure quality of service, and reduce lead time. They also help the sourcing companies to manage product demand and to concentrate on other competencies such as innovation and brand building. These contract research organizations employ the latest technologies and sophisticated instruments, and thus increased outsourcing to such organizations is a positive trend for the Global Biochips market.''

According to the report, one of the major drivers is the growing need for high speed diagnosis from patients and doctors. Biochips are specially designed with advanced technology that makes them ultra-efficient, therefore, enhancing their operating speed to a great extent.
