Bharat Book introduces a report "Metabolomics: Technologies and Global Markets" Metabolomics is defined as the systematic study of the unique chemical fingerprints generated by cellular processes.

 The goal of metabolomics research is to understand the chemical processes in cells that result in the formation of small molecule metabolites.

This BCC Research report, Metabolomics: Technologies and Global Markets, provides an overview of the current state of the metabolomics market, focusing specifically on tools, techniques, products and applications. It describes existing platforms and technologies on the market, and a detailed analysis of the competitive environments, including new potential trends and markets for novel products and applications development. This study includes information about significant players, trends, and obstacles and other information affecting this market and its various segments.


Metabolomics is defined as the systematic study of the unique chemical fingerprints generated by cellular processes. The goal of metabolomics research is to understand the chemical processes in cells that result in the formation of small molecule metabolites.

Indeed, over the last two decades tremendous progress has been made in sequencing the genomes of organisms and the analysis of genes, transcripts, proteins and metabolites. All of these so-called “-omics” approaches (i.e., genomics, proteomics and metabolomics) are very important tools in understanding the biology of organisms and their responses to environmental stimuli or genetic perturbation. Yet, analysis of gene or protein expression is not sufficient to see the “whole picture” in the cell. Metabolomics, on the other hand, has the advantage of being able to provide an instantaneous snapshot of the physiology and biochemical changes in a cell.

Although techniques for metabolomics research have existed for a number of decades, this market is still in a premature state. One reason is that metabolomics requires additional bioinformatics and systems biology tools for a clear understanding of complex biological processes and how these pathways are interconnected with each other. In addition, many industry insiders believe that the importance of this approach has not been fully appreciated by the biotech and pharmaceutical industries.

Today, scientists understand that sequencing DNA or protein profiling alone is inadequate for diagnostic or therapeutic product development. As a result, metabolomics is an emerging trend in research and product development. In addition, the biomarker and diagnostics community sees enormous commercial potential in metabolomics.

These facts have made diagnostics and therapeutics companies reconsider metabolomics applications platforms, and to look more closely at research, diagnostics and pharmaceutical product development based on this approach.

This report highlights the main segments in the metabolomics market: reagents and technological platforms required for metabolomics research, bioinformatics products essential for data processing and analysis, and the main applications of the metabolomics approach in different areas of industry. It discusses its major players and current and future trends and influences. Drivers and challenges in each subsegment of this industry are described in detail, including forecasts for the next five years.


This report is an invaluable tool that can assist market players in evaluating new commercial opportunities in the metabolomics space in technologies, bioinformatics platforms and application submarkets. The geographic scope of this study is global. This market is generally complex and consists of a number of different segments, each of which is affected differently by scientific and technological developments. This report identifies the main positive and negative factors affecting each segment, and forecasts market growth, future trends and product development in every major segment of this market.


Both primary and secondary research methodologies were used in preparing this study. Initially, a comprehensive and exhaustive search of the literature on drug discovery and already marketed products was conducted. These secondary sources included drug discovery and science-related journals, textbooks, press releases, marketing literature, other product/promotional literature, annual reports, security analyst reports and other publications. A patent search and analysis were also conducted.

In a second phase, a series of semistructured interviews was conducted with company representatives, bench scientists, marketing representatives and other personnel at biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies. Other sources included academics, technology and consulting companies. Subsequent analysis of the documents and interviews notes was iterative.


This report is intended for business development professionals, entrepreneurs and other investors who need to fully understand and properly evaluate each segment of the market for metabolomics technologies and applications. It provides insights into the market position of major companies, and shows new opportunities otherwise overlooked or less known to the business community.
