Report Overview

The global genomics market size was estimated at USD 17.2 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 7.7% over the forecast period. Noninvasive cancer screening-based research is one of the major factors playing a pivotal role in reshaping the genomics industry. Researchers from diverse areas of expertise are engaged in the development and establishment of clinical uses for gene-based liquid biopsy tests.

Liquid biopsy solutions identify cancer-causing DNA mutations thus enabling early detection of cancer. Several companies have begun leveraging on genomics for the development of DNA liquid biopsy tests in order to detect cancer at an early stage. Increasing applications of genomics in medicine have gained attention from military organizations, resulting in a significant increase in the adoption of genetic testing in their healthcare systems. Military practitioners are implementing ‘Carrier Screening for Genetic Conditions’ guidelines, which recommends Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) screening in pregnant women.

Japan genomics market

Implementation of human genomics studies across public health programs such as population screening and consumer wellness programs are expected to create lucrative opportunities for the market. These programs are primarily targeted at optimizing preventive care for common chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease.

Traditional genome editing technologies are time-consuming, inefficient, and labor-intensive and have a limited capacity of maintaining pace with the fast-progressing genome modification era. However, the advent of CRISPR/Cas9 nuclease, ZFN, and TALEN is set to address these challenges by facilitating easy and precise genome editing.

Clinical healthcare is being considered as a gateway for introducing new sequencing technologies for U.S. residents. This trend is propelled by healthcare giants focusing on providing medical genomics across clinical patient care delivery. Also, newly developed gene-editing technologies can control and potentially cure specific diseases via the detection of underlying mutations in an individual. Thus, innovations in the medical genomics industry are expected to offer profitable opportunities for the market in the near future.

Application and Technology Insights

Functional genomics is expected to be the largest revenue-generating segment by 2027 owing to the generation of a large amounts of sequencing data. The introduction of high-throughput technologies employed in gene and protein studies has contributed to the segment growth. Advancements in the genomics industry range from studying individual genes to complete genomes and proteomes within a comparatively shorter time durations, which is another factor driving the segment growth.

Investigating communication and response in individual targets within the molecular networks has offered useful insights regarding biological functions at a cellular level. Pathway analysis has emerged as a pivotal aspect to strengthen life sciences research along with a fundamental understanding of molecular and cellular biology targeted toward drug development. Thus, the pathway analysis approach is set to gain significant traction post the emergence of personalized therapies and genomics.

The integration of genomics in the field of personalized therapy enables an in-depth analysis of navigating signaling pathways and disease networks. This further aids in addressing challenges associated with the development of therapeutics and genetic assays. Various biological resource types including gene ontology, gene annotation databases, and pathway databases can be effectively employed for pathway-based analysis.

Deliverable Insights

There is an increase in the number of demonstrations pertaining to miniaturized instruments targeted toward genomics applications in recent years. These instruments are designed to offer enhanced specificity, sensitivity, and automated features as compared to conventional instruments.

However, the development of microfabrication technology and integrated microfluidic genomics systems is now aimed at the development of point-of-care devices. Increasing the use of impedimetric detection is one of the promising techniques for the instruments in the market. Moreover, companies such as Formulatrix, Inc. are introducing innovative instruments that help researchers prepare and process samples before subjecting them to analysis.

Increasing adoption of cloud-based solutions for robust and effective management of parallelization along with distribution of input data and user code on a large number of computer nodes is expected to propel the software solutions sector. This is anticipated to further contribute to the segment growth.

Cloud computing offers a very prominent advantage of performing tasks in different parallel computing nodes along with the processors, which results in a significant reduction in waiting time. The integration of cloud computing solutions in processing NGS related data is expected to have a significant impact on genomics market growth.

End-use Insights

A steep decline in sequencing costs coupled with technological enhancements in informatics, genetic solutions are now widely used across various sectors ranging from small labs to clinical settings. Key end-use segments consist of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, hospitals and clinics, academic and government institutes, clinical and research laboratories, and other end users.

Among these, the pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies segment is expected to dominate the global market throughout the forecast period owing to increasing number of genetic research studies. These are chiefly aimed at the development of efficacious drugs with fewer side effects and improving drug discovery process. This is also attributed to expanding penetration of genomics across diseases associated with immune system, central nervous system, and cardiovascular system.

Global genomics market

Moreover, biotechnology companies are effectively employing gene-editing tools to address challenges pertaining to personalized treatment of patients through development of genetically engineered and recombinant products. Other end-users include agriculture research institutes, direct-to-consumer (DTC), and forensic centers. The others segment is anticipated to witness profitable growth owing to significant demand for DTC among consumers, government, and genomics companies.

Regional Insights

North America is anticipated to emerge as the dominant region in the market owing to rising patient awareness, substantial investments in research by government organizations, and advanced healthcare infrastructure. Changing regulations for usage and reimbursement are expected to fuel the adoption of genetic tests in this region.

Presence of key players such as Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc.; Cepheid, Inc.; Agilent Technologies; and Danaher Corporation have also contributed to the revenue generated by this region. Whereas companies such as Illumina, Genomic Health, and Bluebird Bio that is operating at the forefront for revolutionizing the genomics industry, are also headquartered in the U.S. These companies serve as pioneers in the fields of genetic sequencing, genetic diagnostics, and gene therapy respectively.

Asia Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth in the coming years owing to increasing adoption and awareness for latest genomics technologies in the emerging countries of this region. These technologies are targeted toward detection, treatment, and prognosis of genetic disorders. China is playing a pivotal role in regional market growth by initiatives such as introduction of the Precision Medicine Initiative (PMI) for the use of genomics in healthcare in 2017.
