The global bioinformatics market size generated $8,614.29 million in 2019, and is projected to reach $24,731.61 million by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 13.4% from 2020 to 2027. Bioinformatics is a combination of biology and information technology, which links biological data with techniques for information storage, distribution, and analysis to support multiple areas of scientific research, including biomedicine. It uses software tools for database creation, data management, data warehousing, data mining, and others. Mining such data leads to scientific discoveries, which is used in the study of genetics & genomes. Several bioinformatics tools are available in the market. They are categorized as protein functional & analysis tools, homology & similarity tools, sequence analysis tools, and miscellaneous tools. The field covers many advanced and specialized areas of life such as structural genomics, functional genomics, DNA microarrays, comparative genomics, and medical information. Hence, these aforementioned factors boost the global bioinformatics market share.

Some industries have struggled, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, and some industries have positive impact and one of those is the bioinformatics industry. This industry was already a fast-growing industry even before the COVID-19 crisis hit. This is attributed to bioinformatics tools, which can handle large volumes of biological data. Its a term that was initially coined with the first sharing of biological sequence data and has now become a multi-disciplinary area, which is of acute relevance in the current time.


The global bioinformatics market is expected to register substantial growth in the near future, owing to rise in need for integrated data, rise in demand for nucleic acid & protein sequencing, owing to reduction in sequencing cost, and increase in applications of proteomics & genomics. In addition, drug discovery & development and initiatives from government & private organizations are expected to boost the market growth during the forecast period. However, lack of skilled personnel, common data formats, and lack of user-friendly tools at cheaper prices are projected to hamper the market growth during the forecast period. Conversely, increase in need for integrated solutions & systems, integration of machine learning & AI in healthcare and software companies investing in the development of bioinformatics solutions are expected to offer remunerative market opportunities to bioinformatics solution developers.
