The secondary data analysis segment is projected to register the fastest growth rate during the forecast period. The increasing application scope of whole-genome sequencing needs faster secondary analysis tools to meet the increasing demand. The secondary analysis demands an enormous amount of data storage and computing resources. It is resource-intensive, yet it performs a set of bioinformatics and algorithms on a per-sample basis. This repeatable step can be incorporated into an analytic pipeline, which is entirely automated. This automated workflow enables more resource utilization through scheduling. In addition, it enables continuous improvement of the pipeline with the implementation of monitoring quality metrics and improving the algorithms as well as their associated parameters.

Mode Insights

The in-house mode segment dominated the global industry in 2022 and accounted for the largest share of more than 65.12% of the overall revenue. In-house NGS data analysis involves companies that are into disease diagnosis and testing using NGS while managing their own data analysis using available software tools. Companies operating in this segment are increasing rapidly. Moreover, various academic and research institutes conducting NGS research have been allocated annual budgets to perform in-house services. The in-house analysis provides rapid integration of scientific workflows into bioinformatics pipelines.

The outsourced mode segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth rate during the forecast period. Several players offer outsourced NGS data analysis services for various applications. For instance, SciBerg offers services that allow the analysis of NGS data at a fraction of the total price incurred for DNA library preparation and deep sequencing. Scionics Computer Innovation GmbH offers NGS data analysis services for applications including differential gene expression analysis for RNA sequencing data and de novo assembly & annotation of the transcriptome. Thus, the availability of several options in this domain is an important factor contributing to its rapid growth.

Read Length Insights

Based on read length, the global industry has been further categorized into short, long, and very long read sequencing. The short-read sequencing segment dominated the global NGS data analysis industry in 2022 and accounted for the maximum share of 74.14% of the overall revenue. This is owing to the significant adoption and availability of alignment tools for short-read sequencing data. BaseSpace Sequence Hub, a cloud computing environment for genomics, involves the collection of apps that could easily manage sequencing data, which could further be used for a wide range of studies.

Similarly, DRAGEN by Illumina, Inc, a Bio-IT Platform offers a rapid secondary analysis of sequencing data from whole exome, whole genome, and targeted sequencing workflows. The market shows significant opportunities for long-read sequencing segments. A data processing toolkit, Guppy, by Oxford Nanopore includes base calling algorithms and bioinformatic post-processing characteristics. Base calling is profitable as it reduces the need for local infrastructure and a stable internet connection. The toolkit could be run on Linux or can be combined with the device control software MinKNOW.
