Increasing prevalence of cancer and reproductive health disorders and evolution of cutting-edge next-generation sequencing (NGS) platforms are among the key factors expected to drive the global market revenue growth

According to Emergen Research, the global next-generation sequencing market size was USD 10.72 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 26.16 billion in 2028 and register a revenue CAGR of 10.9% during the forecast period, 2021-2028.

Market Dynamics:

Revenue growth of the global next-generation sequencing market is substantially driven by factors such as rising prevalence of cancer, genetic diseases, and reproductive health disorders across the globe, development of cutting-edge next-generation sequencing platforms, increasing applications of NGS technology in cancer and genomic research, and increasing government and private investments in pharmaceutical & biotechnological R&D programs. Next-generation sequencing (NGS) refer to a massively parallel sequencing technology characterized by ultra-high throughput, high speed, and scalability. It helps determine the order of nucleotides in genomes or targeted regions of the RNA or DNA. The process includes four major steps, including library preparation, cluster generation, sequencing, and alignment & data analysis.

In clinical oncology, NGS is used to develop advanced and personalized treatment of cancer, and the technology helps identify familial cancer mutation carriers, detect new and rare cancer mutations, and develop targeted therapies. Market revenue growth is further supported by factors such as decrease in costs of genome sequencing technologies, growing need for advanced drugs and therapeutics for treatment of cancer and various genetic disorders, and increasing use of the technology in development of effective COVID-19 vaccines and therapeutics. In March 2020, the COVID-19 Genomics U.K. Consortium (COG-U.K.) was formed for detailed analysis of the coronavirus genome using the Whole-Genome Sequencing (WGS) technology. The consortium comprised the NHS, Public Health Agencies, Wellcome Sanger Institute, and several other healthcare institutions.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis:

  • Social distancing and restrictions severely disrupted businesses and operations
  • Lockdowns caused disruptions in transportation and logistics
  • Impacted manufacturing activities and mining operations globally
  • Took a toll on economy of various countries
  • Caused sudden and drastic downturn in economic activity
  • Disrupted agriculture, fisheries, dairy, and other sectors
  • Caused loss of employment and financial crisis
  • Supply impacts were further compounded owing to reduced disposable income
  • Emergence of variants continue to cause concerns and impact normal routines

Whole Genome Sequencing Segment Accounted for Largest Revenue Share in 2020:

The whole genome sequencing segment dominated other segments in terms of revenue share in the global market in 2020. Increasing applications of the whole genome sequencing (WGS) technology in cancer research and development of advanced therapeutics for infectious diseases, rapid adoption of the technology due to benefits such as rapid results and high data throughput, and growing use in COVID-19 diagnostics are among the key factors driving revenue growth of this segment.
