Epigenetics Market Trends

Find out what areas are breaking out within the field.

Epigenetics Market Trends

Epigenetics is currently an amorphous discipline driven by basic research efforts as well as some successes in the clinic. [© 4designersart - Fotolia.com]

  • This report presents our quantitative analysis of the epigenetics marketplace based upon a bottom-up analysis of researchers working in the epigenetics field.

    Highlights of this report:

    • Quantitative trends of the epigenetics research field are presented illustrating the granularity of this field.
    • Cancer is indeed the driver of the epigenetics research efforts and we find that study of solid tumors contributes to the bulk of epigenetics research being conducted in the cancer space today.
    • The epigenetics field is fragmented as is well illustrated by the number and types of technologies being utilized by epigenetics-focused researchers today—there isn’t any substantial standardization at this point in the tools space.
    • We believe that the growth of epigenetics will parallel the growth of several related fields such as noncoding RNAs and other regulatory elements—these fields are deeply linked and will co-evolve.
