Optical genomic mapping offers researchers and clinicians a powerful method for studying structural variations in the genome, thereby enhancing their understanding of genetic diseases, and facilitating personalized medicine.

U.S. Optical Genome Mapping Market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a positive impact on the optical genome mapping industry. The market faced disruptions in the early stages of the pandemic as laboratories and research institutions worldwide had to divert their resources and focus towards COVID-19 diagnostics, treatment, and vaccine development. This led to a temporary slowdown in non-COVID-related research activities, including genomics. Supply chain disruptions and lockdown measures hampered the production and distribution of optical mapping equipment and consumables, causing delays in ongoing projects and new installations.

As the pandemic progressed, optical genome mapping technology demonstrated its relevance in addressing COVID-19-related challenges. Researchers turned the focus on optical mapping to study the genetic variations of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, understand its transmission dynamics, and track mutations that could impact vaccine efficacy. OGM's ability to provide rapid and high-resolution genomic data became valuable for identifying and monitoring emerging variants of the virus, contributing to the global response to the pandemic. As genomics continues to play a crucial role in understanding and addressing infectious diseases, including COVID-19, the optical genome mapping industry is likely to recover and expand in the long term.

The continuous advancements in optical mapping technologies have played a pivotal role in market expansion. Innovations in high-resolution imaging, DNA labeling, and data analysis algorithms have improved the accuracy and efficiency of optical genome mapping, making it an attractive choice for a wide range of applications, including genome assembly, structural variant detection, and genotyping. For instance, in January 2023, Bionano Genomics announced the launch of several new products and advancements for its optical genome mapping workflow, including improved sample preparation robustness, faster turnaround time for DNA labeling and imaging, and increased throughput and quality metrics. Bionano's new sample prep kits, chips, and instrument software respond to customer feedback and can increase performance in a greater volume of routine genome analysis applications.

The growing adoption of optical genome mapping in research institutions and pharmaceutical companies contributed to market growth. For instance, in July 2023, the Centre for Cellular & Molecular Biology (CCMB) in Hyderabad, India launched a cutting-edge high-end next-generation genetic testing tool called 'Optical Genome Mapping' (OGM) that may discover genomic anomalies causing a variety of hereditary diseases in humans. As the importance of genomics in drug discovery and development continues to rise, the demand for precise and reliable genomic analysis tools like optical mapping is expected to surge further.

Product Insights

In terms of product, the market is segmented into instruments, consumables and reagents, software, and services. The services segment dominated the market with the largest revenue share of 39.1% in 2022.An increasing number of outsourced service vendors is expected to maintain the demand for services over the forecast period. The optical genome mapping (OGM) industry is thriving due to increased demand, ongoing innovation, diverse applications, and its integral role in advancing genomics research and applications. There has been a growing demand for OGM services across various end-users for genomics research and clinical applications. As genomics research continues to advance and new challenges emerge, the demand for advanced OGM services is expected to grow over the forecast period.

The consumables and reagents segment is anticipated to grow with a rapid CAGR from 2023 to 2030. Consumables and reagents make up an essential part of the OGM workflow. These consumables and reagents including DNA extraction kits, labeling kits, buffer solutions, microfluidic chips or flow cells, and others are crucial for preparing, processing, and analyzing genomic samples using OGM technology. As OGM technology is increasingly adopted in genomics research and clinical applications, the demand for the essential materials and chemicals used in the process is expected to surge over the coming years.

Application Insights

Based on application, the market is segmented into structural variant detection, genome assembly, microbial strain typing, and others. The structural variant detection segment dominated the market with a revenue share of 49.2% in 2022 and is expected to grow at a lucrative CAGR from 2023 - 2030. Structural variants (SVs) are large-scale genomic alterations that can have a profound impact on an individual's health, including their susceptibility to genetic diseases and their response to treatments.

Optical genome mapping's high-resolution imaging capabilities and ability to analyze individual DNA molecules make it exceptionally well-suited for the detection of structural variants. According to a study published by Springer Nature Limited in March 2021, the total count of SVs discovered per genome has increased from 2, 1-2, 5k in the 1000 genomes project to more than 27k in 2021 multi-platform sequencing efforts. Recent contributions from the Pan-Cancer Analysis of Whole Genomes (PCAWG) Consortium offered a substantial supply of matched tumor-normal genomes. The findings from multi-platform analyses also reveal present SV gaps in cancer variant databases such as COSMIC. However, the increasing research on large-scale genome identification is expected to drive market growth over the forecast period.

The genome assembly segment is anticipated to register the fastest CAGR of 33.8% over the forecast period. Genome assembly involves piecing together the entire DNA sequence of an organism, which is a complex and intricate process. OGM has emerged as a transformative technology for genome assembly due to its ability to provide high-resolution, long-range structural information about DNA molecules. This precise structural data helps researchers overcome challenges associated with repetitive and complex genomic regions that often confound traditional sequencing methods. As the genomics field continues to expand, the genome assembly application segment is poised for further growth and innovation.
