Next Generation Sequencing Market

Growing Adoption of NGS-based Precision Medicine is anticipated to open up new avenues for the Next Generation Sequencing Market

The Next Generation Sequencing Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 588.65 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 18% over the forecast period from 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:

Next generation sequencing (NGS) enables rapid sequencing of genomes and examines discrete genomic variations at single nucleotide resolution. It is widely used in cancer research for detecting somatic mutations, study structural variations, cancer gene expression analysis and others. NGS is also finding applications in personalized medicine for non-invasive prenatal testing, cancer profiling, microbiome analysis and others. Rising NGS adoption in clinical diagnostics, genomics research and agriculture sector are fueling market growth.

Market Dynamics:

Rising focus on precision medicine is a major factor driving Next Generation Sequencing market growth. Precision medicine involves the use of genomic and molecular analysis to tailor medical treatment according to an individual patient’s genetic makeup and disease condition. NGS enables comprehensive genomic profiling of DNA and RNA content of tumors which helps identify new therapeutic targets and develop targeted therapies. This is expected to increase NGS usage for cancer biomarker discovery and clinical diagnostics.

Technological advancements are another key factor fueling market growth. Ongoing developments such as nanopore sequencing, single-cell sequencing and portable sequencing devices are improving accessibility and reducing the cost of NGS. Development of simpler bioinformatics tools for big data analysis is also augmenting adoption. However, lack of skilled workforce and high cost of sequencing remain major challenges.
Segment Analysis
Next Generation Sequencing Market is primarily segmented into products & services, application, end user and region. By products & services, the consumables sub-segment that includes reagents and consumables for pre-treatment, library preparation and sequencing holds the largest market share as consumables are required for sequencing. By application, diagnostics sub-segment dominates the market as NGS helps in diagnosis of genetic diseases and cancers.

PEST Analysis
