Report Description

The study of genomics is receiving immense attention from investors as well as from the public as it impacts the very core of the lives and all living things around globe. Completing the sequencing of the first human genome in 2003 was a key breakthrough that took over 10 years and cost approximately USD 3 billion. Since then, the sequencing speed of a genome has more than doubled, significantly outpacing Moore’s Law. Today’s high throughput sequencing machines process the human genome in a matter of hours at a cost approaching USD 1,000. These advancements have allowed researchers to run more genome analysis in less time, greatly increasing the pace of scientific discovery.

The surging cancer incidence and reduced sequencing costs is anticipated to boost the market growth. The cost of whole genome sequencing has dropped rapidly over the last decade because of the evolution of the next generation sequencing. The rapid evolution of DNA sequencing technologies in recent years has meant that the cost of sequencing one mega-base of DNA has decreased by almost 60% CAGR over the past decade, from over USD 4,953.6 (£3,600) down to USD 0.041 (£0.03) per mega-base of DNA in April 2015. Few fixed costs are anticipated to be reduced through greater automation, however, other costs such as reagents are unlikely to fall at the same rate.

The rising interest in biomarkers is also driving interest in genomics-related pharmaceutical R&D, which has grown significantly since 2000. Several companies have invested in genomics either through collecting genomic information for databases or by generating research. For instance, Illumina estimated the number of genomes sequenced to be doubled every year, up to 1.6 million genomes in 2017. Furthermore, the increasing government funded initiatives are also anticipated to boost the market. Recently in 2020, the Department of Biotechnology (DBT) initiated the ambitious “Genome India Project” (GIP) to collect 10,000 genetic samples of citizens across India to build a reference genome. This project is led by the Indian Institute of Science’s Centre for Brain Research in Bengaluru, which serves as the central coordinator for a collaboration of 20 leading institutions, each of which collects samples and conducts its own research. The precision health, rare genetic disorders, mutation spectrum of genetic and complex diseases in the Indian population, genetic epidemiology of multifactorial lifestyle diseases, and translational research are some of the priority areas.
