DNA Sequencing Market Overview

The global DNA Sequencing market size is projected to achieve a lucrative growth based on the advent of technological innovations and extensive clinical applications. The market is expected to be led by consumable products, in terms of both size and growth during the forecast period (2018-2023). This is attributed to the extensive use of consumables for sample preparation, cluster generation, and other processes during the course of experiments.

DNA sequencing make use of various technological platforms for fragmentation and sequencing studies. These technological platforms include sequencing by synthesis, ion semiconductor sequencing, sequencing by ligation, pyrosequencing, single-molecule-real-time sequencing, chain termination sequencing, and nanopore sequencing. Sequencing by synthesis is the most widely used platform in sequencing protocols and is the largest contributor to the DNA sequencing market, on the basis of product type. The category is also anticipated to witness fastest growth in demand, during the forecast period.

The DNA sequencing market finds application in biomarker and cancer, diagnostics, reproductive health, personalized medicine, and forensics. The latest technological innovations have highly increased sequencing speed, while reducing both the cost of sequencing, and protocol steps. These factors have led to the preference of the DNA sequencing technology for the study of biomarkers.

The end users in market include academic & government research institutes, pharmaceutical companies, biotechnology companies, hospitals & clinics. Sequencing is widely used in academic and government research institute due to the rise of genomics, transcriptomics, and proteomics research.

Globally, North America holds the largest share in the global market, mainly due to factors such as the presence of large number of academic and research institutes, and availability of technologically advanced products, and presence of major players in the region. Conversely, Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth in demand during forecast period. The major factors driving the market demand in Asia-Pacific are increasing awareness about DNA sequencing, rise in the adoption of advanced technology for clinical applications.
