The global nanopore technologies market was valued at $1,74,388.2 thousand in 2020, and is projected to reach $6,80,872.4 thousand by 2030, registering a CAGR of 14.40% from 2021 to 2030. 

Nanopore sequencing is used in the sequencing of biopolymers such as polynucleotides in the form of DNA or RNA and other components. In addition, nanopore sequencing is a technology that enables analysis of single molecule DNA or RNA that can be sequenced without the need for polymerase chain reaction amplification or chemical labeling of the sample. This technology uses minute changes in electric current across the nanopore immersed in a conducting fluid with voltage applied when a moving nucleotide (or DNA strand) passes through it. This helps to sequence any DNA/RNA fragment length to characterize more genetic variation. Furthermore, the technology helps in generating content-rich data, including methylation. The data generated is for real time, and helps in giving rapid insights.. It is a scalable technology that ranges from portable devices to ultra-high throughput desktop devices that are aiding in sequence as per requirement.


Rise in demand for DNA sequencing and increase in R&D on nanopore technologies such that they can be used for novel viruses will help the market gain traction during the forecast period. In addition, rise in the use of epigenetics for the development of novel treatment methods is anticipated to fuel the growth of the market. The increase in demand for DNA sequencing for various application for research would help the nanopore technologies market gain traction during the forecast period. The introduction of Internet of Things benefits the nanopore technology, as sequencers can be easily connected to other technical systems, which will help healthcare professionals monitor the DNA sample on shared cloud computing labs. is anticipated to aid the market grow in the forecast period. 

However, issues in maintaining the integration and structure of the nucleotide bases hamper the growth of the nanopore technologies market. On the contrary, increase in use of nanopore technologies for fourth generation DNA sequencing is expected to offer remunerative opportunities to for the expansion of the market in the next few years.

The convergence of numerous technologies such as ultrafast nanopore sequencing, biosensors, the Internet of things (IoT), cloud computing, computational intelligence algorithms, and other related technologies would gradually expanding the applications of genomics to a wider range of needs. Biosensors make it possible to identify the genetic makeup of bodily fluids, microorganisms residing on the skin, and much more.

The World Health Organization (WHO) on January 30, 2021 declared COVID-19 outbreak a public health emergency of international concern. The nanopore technologies can be used for rapid sequencing of pathogens in multiple outbreak situations. Nanopore technologies were used to find therapeutic options during the outbreak of pandemic, including Zika, Ebola, yellow fever, and swine flu. Moreover, nanopore sequencing quickly generates high consensus accuracy genomes of SARS-CoV-2, to track both transmission of COVID-19 and viral evolution over time. This is further expected to propel the demand for this technology during the pandemic. Simultaneously, limited availability of healthcare staff across the globe is expected to have an undesirable impact on the nanopore technologies market.
