Metagenomics is a molecular tool of modern genomics technique, which allows to analyze the DNA without the need for isolation and pure cultivation. In addition, it enables high resolution genomic analysis of unculturable microbes. This tool helps to overcome the major barriers such as uncultivability and low-resolution analysis due to genomic diversity. In addition, it helps in advancement of environmental and clinical microbiology. Owing to falling cost of DNA sequencing, metagenomics now allows in-depth study of microbial ecology than before, and has thus gained immense interest among healthcare professionals and researchers. Prominent players in the global metagenomic sequencing market have opted various strategies such as product launches, approvals, and investment in R&D for advancement in metagenomics sequencing to strengthen their position in the market and sustain the competitive environment.
The major factor driving the growth of global metagenomics sequencing market is the progressive and dynamic development of faster sequencing techniques and advancements in methods to cope with the exponentially increasing amount of data generated, which are expanding researchers’ capacity to analyze microbial communities from an unlimited variety of habitats and environments. However, the adoption of this approach is hindered by several limitations such as its requirement for parallel advancement in various isolation and identification techniques, more efficient & robust bioinformatics tools, and dearth of highly skilled professionals. Conversely, developing nations offer profitable opportunities for metagenomic sequencing product manufacturers.
