Industry Insights

The global plant genotyping equipment market size was valued at USD 430.65 million in 2017 and is anticipated to showcase a CAGR of 9.6% from 2018 to 2025. Technological advancements in recent times have resulted in new opportunities in the plant genotyping process. Moreover, increasing demand for the genotyping of plants is expected to drive the market growth market over the forecast period.

The global demand for agriculture is increasing rapidly due to the growing human population. There is a rising need to grow high yielding crops to meet global food security needs of the population. Improving the tolerance and adaptability of plants to various adverse environments in order to assure stable and higher crop production is key to meeting this demand. This requires an understanding of the genetic characteristics associated with complex plant traits, along with the effects of various environmental factors on these traits.

Global plant genotyping equipment market

Significant agronomic traits, such as yield, tolerance, or resistance to abiotic and biotic stress, are the result of an interaction between the environment and genotypes. As a result, understanding the behavior of a genotype under certain environmental conditions is of great importance for sustainable and stable crop production and one of the most prominent scientific areas of study in plant biology.

A massive expansion in the rate of discovery of polymorphisms has been possible owing to the fact that the sequence data can be generated using Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies, where Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) have been the prominent preference. The use of SNPs, coupled with an increase in polymorphic marker resources, has led to a shift toward high-throughput genotyping assays.

Equipment Insights

Based on equipment, the market has been categorized into SNP genotyping equipment, real-time PCR instrument, DNA analyzer, liquid handler, and others. While the SNP genotyping equipment segment dominated the market in 2017, the liquid handler segment is anticipated to exhibit the highest CAGR from 2018 to 2025.

SNPs are small variations in DNA sequences, which are related to desired plant traits. Quantitative Trait Locus (QTL) mapping combined with SNPs is used to deliver assays for marker-supported selection programs that assist in enhancing or improving plant characteristics, such as enhanced pest resistance, better stress tolerance, or higher yield.

Application Insights

Based on application, the market has been categorized into plant research, breeding, product development, and quality assessment. The breeding segment held the largest market share in 2017 and is expected to retain its dominance over the forecast period. The product development segment, on the other hand, is expected to exhibit a CAGR of more than 11.0% from 2018 to 2025.

Genotype-By-Sequencing (GBS) has opened new possibilities in plant genetics and plant breeding studies and offers cost-effective multiplexed sequencing and genome-wide scanning platforms. Moreover, recent advancements in GBS have led to the development of the Marker-Assisted Selection (MAS) tool to accelerate crop improvement and plant breeding. This tool has been widely used in plant breeding to enhance crop quality, yield, and tolerance to abiotic or biotic stresses.

End-use Insights

Based on end use, the market has been segmented into greenhouse, field, and laboratory. The laboratory segment dominated the plant genotyping equipment market in 2017 owing to the fact that in recent times, there has been a significant increase in the number of research laboratories using plant genotyping to examine several applied and fundamental aspects of plants.

China plant genotyping equipment market

The greenhouse segment is anticipated to present the highest CAGR of more than 11.0% over the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to a rise in demand for genotyping platforms to be deployed in greenhouses in recent years.

Regional Insights

Based on region, the market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa, and South America. The North America market is expected to witness significant growth owing to increasing research and development undertaken by key players for the development of advanced plant genotyping equipment in the region.

Given its natural resources, Canada has always been a strong contender in the agriculture industry. The Canadian government has shown a consistent focus on R&D investment in agriculture. This has resulted in its extensive network of research centers and universities involved in producing Ag-tech research. For instance, in 2014 New Energy Farms (Canada) had a licensing agreement with Syngenta for commercialization of its planting technology in Brazil.

Plant Genotyping Equipment Market Share Insights

Some of the market participants are LGC Limited (U.K.); Illumina, Inc. (U.S.); and Evogene Ltd. (Israel). Strategic alliances are being undertaken by market players to boost the growth of this promising market. These alliances have established an infrastructure that has facilitated leadership and continuous support.
