The COVID-19 Host Genetics Initiative launched by researchers from the Finnish Institute for Molecular Medicine (FIMM) aims to inspire the human genetics community to analyze, share, and generate data to interpret determinants of COVID-19 outcomes, severity, and susceptibility. deCODE genetics, a genomics solutions provider in Iceland, has used SARS-CoV-2 genomic analysis to monitor the viral spread.

In addition, the company has partnered with the Government of Iceland to conduct genome sequencing of viral hosts. Similarly, the government of Greece funded the COVID-19-GR initiative to genotype 3,500 COVID-19 patients, conduct WGS on the SARS-CoV-2 genome obtained from these patients, and conduct immunogenomic analyses. The complete set of this data along with detailed clinical information is available and can be retrieved from the Greek COVID-19 registry.

In the near future, prenatal genetic screening programs are likely to grow at a significant pace. This is because these programs help expectant mothers identify chromosomal anomalies in their offspring. Moreover, it is anticipated that in the next 10 years, every newborn’s genome would be sequenced and stored in the electronic medical record. Gauging the future market potential of genomics in newborn screening programs, emerging companies like Counsyl and Natera have launched various genetic tests to maintain their competitive edge in the market.

Application & Technology Insights

Functional genomics held the largest revenue share of 32.0% in 2020. Real-time PCR was the dominant revenue generator within functional genomics. Real-time quantitative PCR has played a major role in the absolute quantification of genetic elements in genomic DNA. This technology has been employed to evaluate the use of tissue genomic DNA as a universal external standard for accelerating quantification of any target sequence in the genome of various species.

The use of this technology in combination with reverse transcription PCR enables quantification of low-abundance mRNA, which, in turn, allows researchers to quantify relative gene expression at a particular time. Since this technology is observed to be more sensitive than array technology, when it comes to the detection of small changes in gene expression, its adoption rate is continuously growing. However, it requires more input and is found to be less adaptable in high-throughput studies.

Pathway analysis is expected to register the fastest CAGR from 2021 to 2028. Investigation of how individual targets communicate and respond within the molecular networks has helped elaborate the functioning of biological processes at a cellular level. Hence, pathway analysis has become an integral aspect of drug development and life sciences research. The research community uses pathway analysis to improve fundamental understanding of cellular and molecular biology.

Deliverable Insights

For instance, in June 2020, Omega Bio-tek, Inc. introduced the Mag-Bind Viral RNA Xpress Kit for reliable and rapid viral RNA isolation from nasopharyngeal swab samples.

This introduction of a new kit helps overcome the scarcity of RNA purification kits that are used in the testing of COVID-19. Similarly, in April 2020, PHASE Scientific announced the global release of the PHASIFY VIRAL RNA Extraction Kit that is used to help in the detection and control of coronavirus. This kit allows purification and concentration of the viral nucleic acid in Viral Transport Media (VTM) samples of patients.

Similarly, in October 2020, QIAGEN NV announced the future launch of a novel kit to simplify and accelerate PCR-based analysis of COVID-19 and other RNA-based viruses. Such advancements in product offerings are anticipated to augment organic revenue generation in the market.

On the other hand, key players are acquiring smaller companies to advance their products in accordance with the latest technologies. For instance, in June 2020, Illumina, Inc. acquired Bluebee to boost genomic analysis. The cloud capability of Bluebee is expected to help in reducing the costs of sharing, storing, and managing genomic data in new products.

End-use Insights

Pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies held the largest share of 60.3% in 2020. Genomic technologies are witnessing high demand from pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies owing to the increasing number of genetic research studies. As genomics plays a crucial role in drug discovery and development, several drug developers are employing genomic techniques to ease and improve the process.

For the past few years, direct-to-consumer genomic tests are being offered by companies, resulting in the changing of business models. Personal genomics companies are generating genomics data to offer to pharmaceutical companies. With convenient data analysis and the availability of cheaper data acquisition, several new players have entered the genomics services market to meet the growing demand.
