Global Next Generation Sequencing Market Set to Witness Double-Digit Growth

“Next Generation Sequencing Market 2014-2025” newly adds in database. This report covers leading key company profiles with information such as business overview, regional analysis, consumption, revenue and specification.
Published 30 January 2018

The next generation sequencing market is estimated to represent a global market of USD 5,618 million by 2017 with growth rate of 9.1%. Next-generation sequencing (NGS) involves an advanced level of genetic sequencing which is a level above the conventional methods such as capillary electrophoresis-based Sanger sequencing. NGS procedure is a multi-step process where a number of smaller laboratory processes combine to form the whole next-generation sequencing process. This includes pre-sequencing steps of sample preparation, target enrichment, library preparation under NGS pre-sequencing, the sequencing procedure under NGS Sequencing and data warehousing and data interpretation under NGS data analysis in the workflow outlook.

NGS technology is used for the wide array of sequencing approaches such as transcriptome, genome, and epigenome of any organism. Sequencing techniques differ primarily based on the development of DNA/RNA samples, i.e. tissue type, organism, experimental conditions, and others. This technology is very effective and flexible for the variety of study in large genomic centers to small-scale laboratories. NGS sequencing method is different from Sanger sequencing at a fundamental level in which instead of one fragment being expanded a time, over millions of fragments are expanded in simultaneous reactions which greatly enhance the sequencing capabilities.

Market Dynamic

The market is primarily driven by the constant growth in demand for genetic sequencing owing to its cost-effectiveness. According to the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) , and the significant decrease in the costs for genome sequencing have been witnessed since the first Human Genome Project was initiated in 2000. This has led an increase in uptake of genetic sequencing by various end users such as biotechnology companies, pharmaceutical industries and other, leading to driving the market growth. Furthermore, next-generation sequencing technologies have expanded applications in oncology, infectious disorders, and idiopathic diseases analysis. Additionally, with the technological development of whole-genome sequencing, novel avenues of applicability such as human leukocyte antigen (HLA) and prenatal testing have also been developed, supporting the market growth to great extent.

Technology Takeaway

In terms of technological level, next-generation sequencing is categories into Whole Exon Sequencing (WES) , Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) , Targeted Sequencing and Resequencing Technique. These approaches encompass smaller fragment length sequencing approaches such as de novo sequencing and others. NGS resequencing and de novo sequencing provide laboratories with a capability to produce high throughput sequencing results.

Targeted sequencing captured the significant share of the global market. This sequencing enables researchers to isolate and the sequence-specific subset of genes of the genome. It allows researchers to focus data analysis and specific area of interest time with higher coverage level. For example, targeted resequencing method can cover more than 500-1000× region of genome compared to the traditional WGS study (achieves coverage levels of 30-50× per genome) . This advantage help researcher to identify rare variations which are impossible with WGS and CE-based sequencing techniques.
