On the basis of products, the market is split into instruments, reagents, and others. Reagents segment held the largest share in 2015 with revenues exceeding USD 3.5 billion. It is expected to grow at a CAGR surpasing 12%. Instruments segment is expected to show a significant growth in the coming years.
Technologies consist of polymerase chain reaction (PCR), in-situ hybridization, chips and microarrays, mass spectrometery, DNA sequencing, transportation mediated amplification, and others. PCR held the largest market share of over USD 2.5 billion in 2015. Growth of this segment can be attributed to its high incorporation among the researchers and healthcare professionals. DNA sequencing is likely to show a growth of about 16% CAGR in the coming years.
Applications encompass oncology, pharmacogenomics, infectious diseases, genetic testing, neurological diseases, cardiovascular diseases, and others. Infectious diseases segment was the largest application holding market share exceeding 45% in 2015.
Oncology segment is anticipated to show a CAGR of about 13% till 2024. Rising awareness among people regarding early cancer diagnosis is the key aspect propelling market growth of the segment.
Test location comprises of point of care (PoC), self test or over the counter (OTC), and central laboratories. Central laboratories dominated the market with over 60% shares in 2015. The growth of the central laboratories can be attributed to their large prominence in underdeveloped countries, rising awareness about early detection of diseases, and high procedure volumes.
The PoC is expected to project a lucrative growth with a CAGR of more than 14%. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the increasing demand of bedside patient monitoring and innovative technological devices.
Regions are fragmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East & Africa (MEA). America dominated the market with over 40% revenue share. Asia Pacific is likely to exhibit a growth of around 12%CAGR in the coming years.
The key global players of the molecular diagnostics market include Siemens Healthcare GmbH, Novartis AG (Grifols), F. Hoffmann-La Roche Limited, and Johnson & Johnson.

TITLE: How to Build a Dinosaur: Extinction Doesn't Have to Be Forever
AUTHOR: Jack Horner & James Gorman
DATE PUBLISHED: 2009
This is a horribly written book. There is a ridiculous amount of completely irrelevant filler, a few interesting dinosaur bits and pieces that have nothing to do with the book title (and presumably subject) and then a magazine article length section on "how to build a dinosaur" by fiddling with chicken genomes, along with how the general public is going to freak out about it. The author spends the entire first chapter babbling about a town in the middle of nowhere, how to get there, local gossip and a bit of local history i.e. irrelevant filler. Then there is a section on finding evidence of dinosaur blood cells and collagen, with some pointless pot-shots at creationists (they might be crazy but do you really have to include it in the book, especially since it doesn't accomplish anything?), and too much details about the scientists personal life. The sections dealing with the techniques used was interesting, but there was too little substance and far too much filler. The writing is also simplistic but overly verbose, and got boring after a while.
NOTE: The book was published in 2009, so some of the scientific data discussed may well be out of date by now, especially anything related to genetic alterations.
TITLE: Bring Back the King: The New Science of De-Extinction
AUTHOR: Helen Pilcher
PUBLICATION DATE: 2016
In this book, Helen Pilcher takes an introductory look at the science of de-extinction, covering such topics as the de-extinction of dinosaurs, neanderthals, mammoths, a variety of extinct birds, the thylacine, Elvis Presley, as well as some other random questions, ethics and concerns.
The book reads more like a collection of excessively padded magazine articles stuffed into one package. There is also an excessive amount of "cutsie" humour (also bad jokes) in this book which simply falls flat; as well as too many personal intrusions from the author. The discussions of the actual de-extinction science are uneven - some animals are lucky enough to get their situation and the science explained in a fair amount of detail, others will get an over-simplified explanation. The ethics, challenges and if the whole things is a good idea is glossed over in one chapter.
The majority of the chapter on Neanderthals involves too much author speculation and personal emotion in her speculative story of a neanderthal baby. The chapter on Elvis is just silly and self-indulgent. Pilcher could have found a better way to discuss general genetics and epigenetics, and she oversimplifies what she does write about the topic. The chapter about the white rhino gastric brooding frog are informative, and better written than the others.
This book is easy to read, funny (to other people) and would probably make a good introduction to the subject for people who aren't too particular about the amount of hard science in their popular science books. Teenagers might like it too.
Otherwise, there are a selection of other books on the same topic that are better written:
-Resurrection Science: Conservation, De-extinction and the Precarious Future of Wild Things by M.R. O'Connor [Deals more with the conservation angle]
-How to Clone a Mammoth: The Science of De-Extinction by Beth Shapiro [Includes more physical science involved in de-extinction and all the ethics and possibilities]
-Rise of the Necrofauna: A Provocative Look at the Science, Ethics, and Risks of De-Extinction by Britt Wray [Focus on the ethics, risks and possibilities of de-extinction science]
- How to Build a Dinosaur: The New Science of Reverse Evolution by Jack Horner & James Gorman
For those interested in epigenetics:
-The Epigenetics Revolution by Nessa Carey
TITLE: Rise of the Necrofauna: The Science, Ethics, and Risks of De-Extinction
AUTHOR: Britt Wray
DATE PUBLISHED: September 2017
Rise of the Necrofauna is a wonderfully clearly written, enjoyable, extremely interesting, informative and engaging book that takes a broad look at the science, uses, ethics, and risks of de-extinction technology and organisms. Britt Wray provides a nice summary of the current status of the handful of de-extinction projects currently in existence, as well as providing interesting interviews with the scientists currently involved in these projects.
Chapter one provides a summary of the scientific methods involved in the various de-extinction efforts. I would have preferred more details of the actual methods involved, such as is covered in How to Clone a Mammoth by Beth Shapiro. However, what the author does write about the science involved is clear and easily understandable.
The remainder of the book covers topics on the ethics and uses of this technology, such as: why de-extinction is important; what species are good contenders and why; woolly mammoths and passenger pigeons; possible regulations for de-extinct species; uses of this technology in conservation efforts; and the risks involved. A great many perspectives are investigated, but what is interesting is that the majority of scientific techniques developed for de-extinction projects has helped other scientific fields as well, and that their may be more than one way to bring back an extinct species or help an endangered species.
Most of the information and examples covered in this book is discussed (in one way or another) in How to Clone a Mammoth by Beth Shapiro, however, this book is better written even though it doesn't emphasize the science as much. So, if you have read How to Clone a Mammoth you will probably not gain much more information from this book. On the other hand, this is a lovely introduction to the concept and reality of de-extinction and its possibilities.
