DNA sequencing market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 21.0% during the forecast period of 2021-2030. DNA sequencing is the determination of the order of four chemical buildings blocks called as the bases that are responsible for the creation of DNA molecule. The sequence carries the genetic information that is carried in the particular DNA segment. The technology is one of the fastest growing segments in the life science tools market. The technology is gaining high commercialization and is finding huge application in various end user segments such as pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, research centers and academic & government institutes, hospital and clinics etc. 

DNA Sequencing Market

Emerging and Applied Markets in DNA Sequencing is A Key Driver

The emerging technology in the DNA sequencing market is Single-Molecule Real Time Sequencing (SMRT), which isa third generation sequencing and is developed by Pacific Biosciences. This technology involves a single-stranded molecule of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) which is attached to a DNA polymerase enzyme.Single-Molecule Real Time Sequencing (SMRT) is considered to be a very efficient technique as lesser expensive chemicals are used in this technique. Moreover, it is also extremely sensitive, which enables scientists to efficiently eavesdrop on deoxyribonucleic acid polymerase and detect it making a strand of deoxyribonucleic acid. It can also produceextensive reads of sequence up to 10-15 kilobases long from single molecules of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), very rapidly. Generating long read sequence is very essential because it is easier to accumulate genomes from longer fragments of deoxyribonucleic acid. It also means that for minute genomes the whole sequence can be achieved without the need for the time-consuming gap closing and expensive techniques that other technologies need.Moreover, using this technique scientist are now able to re-sequence genomes that have previously been sequenced to obtain a higher level of precision. For instance, using Single-Molecule Real TimeSequencing inEscherichia coli has now been sequenced to an accuracy of 99.9999 %. In addition, this sequencing technique has resulted in much more sophisticated, faster, and cheaper sequencing of the genome or DNA. 

Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Companies Are Fastest Growing Markets

The global DNA sequencing market can be segmented on the basis of end users including research centers and academic & government institutes; hospitals & clinics; pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies; and, other end users. Amongst the various end users, research centers and academic & government institutes dominate the global DNA sequencing market in end user segment. Moreover, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies are anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR of 22.4% during the forecast period.In healthcare sector, one of the most innovative and fast growing field is genomics, which comprises the sequencing and analysis of the human genome (complete set of DNA). Genomics is enabling the pharmaceutical companies to adopt a more personalized approach for drug development, and it is expected to lead to safer and more effective drugs. Genome testing or sequencing can identify ancestry, disease risk, traits and response to medicines, and is also helping in the development of new targeted therapies sometimes called personalized medicine.

Sequencing by Synthesis Technology Held the Largest Market Share

The global DNA sequencing market can be segregated on the basis of technologies including sequencing by synthesis, ion semiconductor sequencing, sequencing by ligation, pyrosequencing, single-molecule real-time sequencing and various other technologies. Amongst the various technologies, sequencing by synthesis technology held the largest market share of approximately 24% in 2020. Moreover, single molecule real time sequencing (SMRT) technology is anticipated to be the fastest growing technology with a CAGR of 23.2% during the forecast period. Apart from the substantial success of this technology, challenges continue to limit the capability to reduce the human genome sequencing cost to $100,000 or less. For the achievement of dramatically reduced cost along with enhanced quality and throughput require the seamless integration of technological and scientific efforts across disciplines within chemistry, biochemistry, engineering and physics. 

North America Holds the Largest Share While APAC to Grow Fast

North America has the largest share in the global market and it is driven by the presence of major key player such as Affymetrix, Inc. (U.S.); Agilent Technologies, Inc. (U.S.); Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. (U.S.); GE Healthcare (U.S.); Illumina, Inc. (U.S.);Qiagen N.V. (Germany); and, Thermo fisher Scientific, Inc. (U.S.). North America also accounts for the highest number of patients. n North America, the prevalence of various cancer such as breast cancer, lung and bronchus cancer, prostate cancer, colon and rectum cancer, bladder cancer, melanoma of the skin, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, thyroid cancer, kidney and renal pelvis cancer, leukemia, endometrial cancer, Pancreatic cancer, and others are growing rapidly due to which the demand for DNA sequencing is continuously increasing which is also acting as the driver for the market. In North America, the United States and Canada are contributing to the growth of the DNA sequencing market. In the United States, the prevalence rate of various cancer is very high due to which it is majorly contributing to the growth of this market in North America region. Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing region with a CAGR of 21.5% during the forecast period. Large population of the India and China is suffering with diabetes and other peripheral diseases, and the prevalence of these diseases is growing at a very fast rate. The large number of diabetic patients is of young age.
