Whole Genome Sequencing Global Market Report 2023: Decreasing Costs For Genetic Sequencing Bolsters Growth


(MENAFN- GlobeNewsWire - Nasdaq)

Dublin, March 17, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 'whole genome sequencing market size, share & trends analysis report by product (instruments, consumables, services), by type, by workflow, by application, by end-use, by region, and segment forecasts, 2023 - 2030' report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The global whole genome sequencing market size is projected to reach USD 6.67 billion by 2030, expanding at a CAGR of 20.06% from 2023 to 2030.

The market growth can be attributed to the rising adoption of whole genome sequencing for genome mapping programs and the increasing prevalence of inherited disorders, including rare genetic disorders. According to the study published in the New England Journal of Medicine in November 2021, whole genome sequencing could lead to the early diagnosis of a wide range of rare diseases and a reported transition to precision medicine.
Furthermore, the growing investment in R&D for the early detection and treatment of disorders with the aid of WGS is expected to propel the growth of the market. For instance, in February 2023, the government of Indonesia and the Genome Science Initiative, with the aid of a USD 30 million investment from the Global Fund, established a network of facilities to perform the method for the early detection and treatment of disorders, including COVID-19, tuberculosis, cancer, genetic disorders, brain diseases, and metabolic disorders.
Whole genome sequencing has a wide range of applications, and government bodies are adopting these technologies for sequencing the genomes of humans, plant, animal, and microbes, which is expected to drive market growth. For instance, U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) adopted the method to identify foodborne pathogens during foodborne disease outbreaks across the countries. The FDA has adopted this technology since 2008 under the Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) program as it enables it to distinguish all strains of foodborne pathogens more efficiently than pulse-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE).
The rising technological advancements have led to the launch of innovative whole genome sequencing products that offer an affordable, accurate, and timely diagnosis of various diseases and infections. This is contributing to the growth of the market. For instance, in December 2022, LifeCell International Pvt. Ltd. collaborated with HaystackAnalytics to launch TB, a whole genome sequencing test to identify the diagnostic information on tuberculosis infections and tackle the drug resistance challenge.
The COVID-19 pandemic led to an increased demand for the method globally, which enabled the rapid identification of SARS-CoV-2 and the development of possible diagnostic tests to manage the outbreak. Hence, governments across the globe collaborated with research organizations and the corporate sector to use the method to identify and diagnose SARS-CoV-2. Several companies have launched genomic services and rapid solutions for the surveillance of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. For instance, QIAGEN offers the whole genome sequencing services SARS-CoV-2 surveillance for the identification of potent mutants, tracing of possible outbreaks, and advancement of vaccine research and drug development.
