Genome Sequencing Market 2
Genome Sequencing Market 2

The genome sequencing market is expected to register a CAGR of approx. 13% over the period of 2022-2028. The process of mapping and sequencing a person’s individual DNA is known as genome sequencing. The term “genome” refers to the complete blueprint of a person’s human body. A person’s genes, which are a bundle of DNA, can cause a disease or increase the likelihood of disease. Genome sequencing helps to identify any significant differences in the genes, which can increase the likelihood of disease. DNA sequencing is inexpensive, has high accuracy and speed, and can produce results from small samples. DNA sequencing technologies have advanced from the first to the third generation. Because of their features, DNA sequencing systems have gained traction, which may have a positive impact on the DNA sequencing market. The growing demand for genome sequencing can be attributed to the growing emphasis on NGS-based diagnostics and surging incidences of cancer across the globe. For instance, the number of cancer cases in the US will increase 49% each year, from 1,534,500 in 2015 to 2,286,300 in 2050, with the largest percentage increase among adults aged ≥75 years, as per the predictions by CDC. Owing to the glaring statistics the increase in cancer prevalence has created a buzz among biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies for investing in the development of effective and reliable diagnostic tools which boosts the demand for genome sequencing across the globe and would contribute to the growth of the market in the forthcoming period as well. Furthermore, the genome sequencing market is anticipated to grow on account of the rapid advancements in sequencing technology and bioinformatics. In addition, changes in lifestyle and various health-related issues drive market growth. However, some of the restraints in the market including the Lack of trained professionals and the high cost of establishing and maintaining a sequencing facility are impeding the growth of this market all over the world.

Agilent Technologies Inc; Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc.; Illumina, Inc.; Qiagen NV; BGI Genomics Co Ltd; Oxford Nanopore Technologies PLC; Macrogen Inc; PerkinElmer, Inc.; Pacific Biosciences of California Inc; Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc are some of the key players in the market.
