Industry Insights

The global genomics market size was valued at USD 13.75 billion in 2017 and is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 9.1% over the forecast period. Growth of genomic data pool from research activities has enabled physicians, biologists, and patients to further investigate the genetic predisposition to certain diseases. Clinical application of this data pool is expected to play a major role in transforming the healthcare system with respect to the provision of more accurate, effective, and reliable disease management solutions.

Although clinical application of genomic data is at a nascent stage, the healthcare and research community are making attempts for effective integration of genetic information into clinical workflows. Several clinical centers, such as Stanford Health Care and other cancer research centers, have begun using the available genomic information to devise personalized treatment regime. This, in turn, helps in bridging the gap between translational research and clinical diagnosis and treatment.

Japan genomics market

Growing implementation of human genetic studies into various public health programs such as consumer wellness programs and population screening, aimed at optimizing preventive care for common chronic diseases will support market growth.

Growing investment by government bodies, funding agencies, and biotechnology companies to accelerate research is anticipated to drive the market further. International funding bodies like NIH and Welcome Trust are engaged in providing funds for genetic studies, which, in turn, is expected to fuel genomic studies across the globe.

One of the most important factors anticipated to impact this market is how much and to what extent the medical community will make the use of available genomic information in personalized medicine. Scientists are combining the data generated from sequencing with diagnostics, which has proven effective in enhancing personalized treatment landscape.

Application & Technology Insights

Generation of large amount of sequencing data has led to a significant growth of functional genomics trend. Development of high-throughput technologies for gene, as well as protein, studies has supported the expansion of this segment. Progress in the industry from studying individual genes to entire genomes and proteomes within a relatively short time frame reflects the segment growth. Integration of high-throughput solutions in functional genomics has offered the possibility of developing efficacious drugs with fewer adverse effects.

Furthermore, use of behavioral genetic tool kits holds a significant potential for evaluation of competing hypotheses regarding modules and peculiarities of particular behavior. Investigation of how individual targets communicate and respond within the molecular networks has helped elaborate functioning of biological processes at a cellular level. Pathway analysis has become an integral aspect in drug development and life sciences research. Research community uses pathway analysis to improve fundamental understanding of cellular and molecular biology. On the other hand, pharmaceutical companies implement network analysis for the development of next-generation therapeutics.

Pathway-based analysis has gained more attention after the emergence of genomics and personalized therapies. This is mainly because genomics and personalized therapies aid in in-depth analysis of the ability to navigate signaling pathways and disease networks. Increasing information on these network analyses can be used to address the challenges faced in developing therapeutics and genetic assays to boost the chance of success in R & D. Several types of biological resources, such as pathway databases, gene annotation databases, and gene ontology, can be effectively used for pathway analysis.

Deliverable Insights

Miniaturization in the instruments used in genomic applications is expected to serve as a fillip for market growth. Advantages offered by these instruments include specificity, sensitivity, and automation for the development of Point-of-Care (PoC) diagnostics. With the maturity in development of microfabrication technology, microfluidic systems can be used for different genomic detections. The major objective of these miniaturized instruments is the development of the PoC device. Moreover, rising usage of impedimetric detection is one of the promising techniques for the instruments. Advancements in circuits and systems are also driving the market with a technical revolution in the omics era.

Uptake of cloud-based solutions, which effectively and robustly manage the parallelization and distribution of input data and user code on a large number of computer nodes supporting the market growth. Cloud computing provides a very clear advantage of performing tasks across different parallel computing nodes and processors coupled with significant reduction in the waiting time. Introduction of cloud computing environment for processing NGS generated data has played a great role as a driving force for the current market. Demand for these services would remain strong with the expansion of the customer base from academic and research centers to CROs and biotech and pharma players.

End-use Insights

With a decrease in sequencing costs and improvements in informatics, genetic solutions are now widely accessible in various sectors ranging from small labs to clinical settings. Key usage segments include pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, hospitals and clinics, academic and government institutes, clinical research, and other end users. Among these, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies held the largest share owing to rise in the number of genetic research studies aimed at improving drug discovery process and development of efficacious drugs with fewer adverse effects.

Global genomics market

Moreover, biotechnology companies are using gene editing tools to meet the unmet needs of patients through development of recombinant and genetically engineered products. The others segment that includes Direct-To-Consumers (DTC), agriculture research institutes, and forensic centers is estimated to held the lowest penetration in the market. This is primarily because of less usage of genetic tools within these entities. However, in the coming years, this segment is expected to witness lucrative growth owing to the fact that DTC is receiving significant attention amongst consumers, government, and genomic companies.

Regional Insights

North America held the largest share of the overall market in 2017. Increasing investment on research by government organizations, rising patient awareness, and availability of sophisticated healthcare infrastructure has led to the increased technological advancements in this market. Presence of key companies, such as Affymetrix, Inc.; Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc.; Agilent Technologies; GE Healthcare; Illumina, Inc.; Cepheid, Inc.; and Danaher Corporation, can also be attributed to its high market share.

Asia Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth in the coming years. Developing infrastructure in these countries has led to the increased demand for biomarkers for diagnostics purposes. Moreover, rising adoption and awareness about a number of genomics technologies in the emerging countries, such as China and India, for detection, treatment, and prognosis of various genetic disorders including diabetes and cancer will support the region’s development.

There are several interesting human genome sequencing projects being carried out. One of the most recent project is Genome Asia 100K (GA 100K). Under this project, 100,000 Asians genomes will be sequenced and analyzed, which will help accelerate population-specific medical advances and precision medicine.
