Analyst Review

DNA sequencing has enhanced diverse fields of life-sciences by research, innovation, and development. Biomarker discovery, oncology studies, drug development, personalized genomics, and reproductive health are some of the widely-known applications of this technique. Similarly, DNA sequencing also contributed significantly in agricultural & animal and forensic research. This sequencing is anticipated to witness high adoption rate with increase in distinct applications and interventions, such as diagnostics, biomarker discovery, personalized medicine, and others. The market has gained momentum in the research, innovation, and development sector, owing to the increase in genome mapping projects globally, significant technological advancements in next generation sequencing, and surge in collaborations & partnerships among DNA sequencing product manufacturing companies. In addition, rise in awareness about DNA sequencing and its advantages drives the market growth.

The demand for DNA sequencing has increased due to the reduced cost of sequencing and rise in the total number of produced sequence reads per run. However, standardization concerns in diagnostics based on DNA sequencing and ethical & legal limitations restrict the market growth. At present, academic & government research institutes are the largest end users of DNA sequencing, followed by pharmaceutical companies, biotechnology companies, and hospitals & clinics. The biotechnology end-user segment is expected to exhibit the highest growth rate throughout the forecast period. However, the utilization of DNA sequencing is higher in academic & government research institutes than other end users as DNA sequencing is routinely employed in hospitals for genomics research, biomarkers detection, transcriptomics research, and other purposes.

Increase in awareness regarding sequencing and investment in research, innovation, and development fuel the demand for novel DNA sequencing technologies, especially nanopore sequencing. The employment of technologically advanced DNA sequencing products is highest in North America, owing to the increase in adoption of DNA sequencing products and technologies, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific.
