Global Genome Sequencing Market Report 2021-2026 Featuring Prominent Players - Illumina, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Oxford Nanopore Technology, Pacific Biosciences, F. Hoffmann-La Roche, & BGI

Research and Markets
·6-min read

Dublin, March 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Genome Sequencing Market - Global Outlook and Forecast 2021-2026" report has been added to's offering.

The global genome sequencing market by revenue is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 9% during the period 2021-2026.

The global market is expected to grow due to the growing number of rare, terminal, and complex diseases, especially cancer. The constant increase in cancer cases is proportionately increasing the number of sequencing-based diagnostics and treatment options in the market. The introduction of single-cell sequencing technology performs advanced sequencing, thereby helping in cell mapping of tumor cells.

This technology is widely used in several tumor researches and has been significantly beneficial for developing new diagnostic and anti-tumor treatment methods. The single-cell analysis has become a standard application both in basic and translational research. This technology is widely used in the field of reproductive and embryonic medicine. It can sequence and quantify the whole genome of germ cells and embryonic cells at the single-cell level, thereby helping researchers to understand the occurrence of germ cells.

Global Genome Sequencing Market Segmentation

The global genome sequencing market research report includes a detailed segmentation by product, application, end-user, geography. The steady rise in the sale of high-end consumables in commercial laboratories, research institutes, academic institutes, and large pharma and biotech companies performing a high volume of sequencing-based processes is a significant factor responsible for the growth of consumables. In 2020, the consumables segment accounted for the largest share in the market with 81%.

The recurring application of consumables to perform a wide range of sequencing-based studies and diagnostics is another critical factor for high sales for consumables. Moreover, increased preference for array-based genotyping consumables for a wide range of analysis, disease-related mutations, and genetic characteristics associated with cancer research is further expected to increase the demand for consumables during the forecast period. High innovations and the introduction of high throughput advanced technologies are likely to drive the application of sequencing devices. These devices are capable of sequencing million to billion reads in a single run in less time.

New cancer cases are expected to reach 24 million by 2030, which is likely to augur well for oncology genome sequencing growth. As cancer prevalence is growing, the need for effective patient stratification is driving research efforts to identify biomarkers and develop companion diagnostics. Genome sequencing has opened new ways of studying cancer-related conditions.

Cancer sequencing using next-generation sequencing (NGS) methods provides more information in less time compared to traditional single-gene and array-based approaches. Hence, NGS technology has the potential to change the future of oncology and deliver personalized medicine. They have revolutionized the diagnosis and treatment of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) with accurate testing, classification, and the ability to take advantage of precision medicine.

The presence of several research institutes and stand-alone genomic laboratories in the US, the UK, Germany, France, and China is a major factor responsible for the growth of genome sequencing devices. To develop personalized and effective new therapies that restore mobility, enhance the quality of life, and improve surgical outcomes for patients with multiple disorders, these centers perform extensive research on sequence structural levels of genomics.

Hence, the increased focus on unraveling genetic components of common and complex diseases, including cancer diagnostics, neurological disorders, infectious diseases, and rare childhood disorders, influences the market.
