Technological Advancements to Foster Next Generation Sequencing Market

Pune, India, February,2019/MRFR Press Release/- Market Research Future has published a half-cooked research report on the Global Next Generation Sequencing Market.

Market Synopsis

Market Research Future (MRFR) speculates that the global next generation sequencing market is presumed to demonstrate a healthy growth rate during the forecast period (2018-2023) owing to the technological advancements. Next-generation sequencing (NGS), also termed as high throughput sequencing technology or massively parallel sequencing, has revolutionized the biological sciences. The NGS technology has transformed genomic research to an advanced level and allows to sequence a complete human genome in a small duration. The genetic material is pulled out in this process, fragmented, and associated with primers and adapters for amplification.

Market Potential and Pitfalls

With the emergence of high throughput screening technology, there have been substantial changes in the sequencing process by reduced sequencing cost and offering speed. The technology is propelling at a rapid pace owing to its application in clinical, agricultural, and forensic areas. For instance, NGS helps to detect various clinical applications such as cancer and its infectious disease and several genetic disorders. The augmenting awareness regarding next-generation sequencing, technological advancements, rising acquisitions and mergers among the global players, and growth in genome mapping programs are considered some of the major factors promoting the market growth throughout the appraisal period. NGS allows the researchers to study biological systems and perform a range of applications at a level never before possible with the help of scalability, ultra-high throughput, and speed. Pacific Biosciences of California, Illumina, Oxford Nanopore technology and Thermo Fisher scientific provides NGS instruments based on technologies like sequencing by ligation, reversible terminator sequencing, single-molecule, ion semiconductor sequencing technology, real-time sequencing (SMRT), and nanopore sequencing technology. The constant technological advancements and a wide range of diagnostic applications are making user-friendly and more efficient. Such factors are further bolstering the market growth across the globe.

Moreover, NGS is used to execute applications like oncology studies, biomarker discovery, agricultural & animal research, personalized medicine, and others. It has extensively replaced conventional tools of genomics. The demand has further increased across the world due to the increasing R&D investments by several market giants.

On the contrary, lack of skilled workforce in order to store and manage the huge amount of data appropriately, proper healthcare infrastructure, and the high cost associated with the technology are some of the top barriers predicted to vitiate the market growth in the coming years. Moreover, the complications associated with data storage is likely to dampen the market growth to a certain extent.
