The COVID-19 pandemic outbreak had posed challenges to applications of genomics in terms of research and therapeutics. Nevertheless, some niche applications were of great use to mankind during the pandemic situation to facilitate immediate attention for designing effective diagnostics, effective therapeutics and steps to curb the spread of COVID-19.  For example, the viral genome mutational rate (~1-2 bases per month) was gauged for the validity of PCR cycle was estimated to understand the efficacy of the re-purposed anti-viral treatments and thereby the vaccine development process was streamlined.

Many genomic surveillance programs were launched country wise to understand the dynamics of the pandemic situation and to effective preventive measures. For instance, in December 2020, the Indian SARS-CoV-2 Genomics Consortium (INSACOG) was launched by the joint efforts of Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Ministry of Health, and ICMR with an aim to screen the genomic variations in the SARS-CoV-2 by sequencing technologies.

The increasing prevalence of inheritred cancers is expected create a high demand for cancer genomics. The substantial understanding of human genome have targeted focus on use of various gene therapies for treatment of cancers by modern gene editing techniques such as CRISPR-Cas gene technology. For instance, in September 2022, a group of researchers at the University of California introduced the applications of precision genome editing agents for management of inherited retinal diseases (IRDs).

Furthermore, the growth of the genomics market is attributive to the extensive research, development strategies carried out by the biopharmaceutical companies for drug discovery and advancements in technology enabled personalized medicine. For instance, in August 2022, researchers at the Clemson University launched an open-source model that is designed to aid researchers build prediction models to represent extensive cellular interactions and allow for the integration of large datasets for personalized medicine applications like drug-matching for cancer therapeutics.

The market players are extensively working towards collaborations, expansions, acquisitions and huge capital investments to advance research in genomics to understand rare diseases and to aid drug discovery. For instance, PacBio declares a collaboration with the Genomics England society for the utility of PacBio’s technology to detect genetic variation in unexplained rare disorders. The study is intended to re-sequence a selection of samples collected during Genomics England’s 100,000 genomes project to discover potential operational and clinical benefits of long-read sequencing for the identification of mutations associated with rare diseases.

Technology & Application Insights

The functional genomics segment dominated the overall market with the largest revenue share of 31.9% in 2021. The dominance of the segment can be attributed to research studies aiming to understand a particular phenotypical expression of a given disease condition. Many gene therapies for cancers are designed on the basis of functional genomics. For instance, in June 2020, researchers at European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) at Heidelberg increases the scalability and precision metrics of functional genomics CRISPR/Cas9 gene-based screens through targeted single-cell RNA sequencing.  Single-cell RNA sequencing gives deep insights into levels of gene expression in individual cells and can capably analyze CRISPR/Cas9 functional genomics screens.

The biomarker discovery segment is expected to witness a substantial growth rate over the forecast period owing to the favorable outcomes and the level of efficacy offered by genomics in numerous diagnostic applications. Researchers across the globe are identifying novel biomarkers that could capably suggest a disease condition like a specific type of cancer. For instance, in September 2022, researchers at the University of Cincinnati published their research on biomarkers that could capably predict breast cancer progression and could be potential targets for new treatments. They discovered that the oncogenes called Ron and DEK can regulate certain metabolites that accelerate the growth of cancer cells.

Deliverables Insights

The product segment dominated the market and accounted for a revenue share of 69.5% of the market in 2021. The products used in genomics are broadly segmented into two categories—instruments or systems that are required for the synthesis and sequencing of the nucleic acid sequences. The increase in preference for personalized medicines and decline in sequencing costs owing to the launch of NGS technology resulted in the development of novel products or systems. The genomics market is gradually becoming more competitive with new product launches. For instance, in June 2022, PerkinElmer introduced an automated benchtop system for NGS. The research used only BioQule NGS System to automate library preparation.  

The service segment is expected to register a considerable CAGR by 2030. The high cost of products, the demand for expertise required for genomics, and the focus on core operations by the end user are the major factors driving the services segment. NGS-based services held a major share in the genomics services segment due to the rapid adoption of Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) and applications of sequence databases for disorder screening and prognosis. However, data processing and interpretation, rather than data production has become the need for current development and application.  

End-use Insights

The pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies segment led the market and accounted for a revenue share of 57.3% in 2021. This is attributed to the increasing demand for use of genomics in drug discovery. Moreover, the market is driven by novel therapeutic options like gene editing and thereby the need for precision and personalized medicine. Numerous trials are underway for novel drug discovery using underlying knowledge from genomics. For instance, in June 2022, Illumina Inc., declares that it will present seven of their abstracts regarding the key oncology research at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) 2022 in further to an event to discuss the transformational impact of comprehensive genomic profiling in precision medicine.

 Global genomics market share, by end use, 2021 (%)

The hospital and clinic segment is estimated to grow at a substantial pace during the forecast period. Several hospitals and clinics are currently offering genomic sequencing services to patients and are determining the use of this technology in the daily practice of medicine. Stanford Medicine is one such facility that provides genomic sequencing services to patients with a rare or unidentified condition that is thought to be genetic. The first hospital system to offer the general public services for genetic sequencing, analysis, and interpretation is Partners HealthCare based in the U.S. It has enrolled over 200 patients and physicians in a study funded by NIH to study the integration of whole genome sequencing in clinical medicine.

Regional Insights

North America accounted for the largest market share of 42.5% in 2021. This is attributed to the support of research institutes and pharmaceutical giants. Genomics is now an integral part of any disease research and drug discovery due to the implications of genetic expression on human health. There are emerging advancements in the region for the utility of genomics with collaborative efforts. For instance, in January 2022,  Illumina, Inc. collaborates with Nashville Biosciences, LLC, (part of Vanderbilt University Medical Center at Tennesee), for drug development by using genomics and to establish a preeminent clinico-genomic resource. 

Genomics Market Trends by Region

Asia Pacific is estimated to be the fastest-growing segment over the forecast period due to increased demand for genomics applications in diagnostics and the growing demand for novel therapeutic drugs to fight the increased incidence of diseases in the region. Several major human genome sequencing projects are being performed, one of the most recent projects is Genome Asia 100K. Under this project, 100,000 Asian genomes would be sequenced and analyzed, which can help accelerate population-specific medical advances and precision medicine. With this project, GA 100K was expected to identify new possible therapeutic drugs and understand the biology of diseases.
