What other certifications will increase my market value?

I do not see a question posed to me. Are you asking me which other certifications to pursue? There are a few options you might consider.

Many shops are multi-RDBMS shops, with Oracle, SQL Server and mySQL being in fashion these days. There are other flavors like DB2, Sybase, PostgreSQL, etc. Obtaining certifications in those other platforms can be a boost to those potential employers that have multiple RDBMS platforms to work with.

Another good certification is something Java-related. Lots of shops are using Java and Java certifications are in demand right now.

Other than that, take a look at what the market is currently looking for. Go to dice.com or monster.com and see what skill sets employers are looking for. Gear your certifications towards the market.
