4 Mins read

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Next Generation Sequencing Market by Offering Type Application Technology – Global Forecast to 2030” report has been added to’s offering.

The global NGS market is projected to reach $27.5 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 15.8% from 2023 to 2030.

Succeeding extensive secondary and primary research and in-depth analysis of the market scenario, the report comprises the analysis of key industry drivers, restraints, challenges, and opportunities.

The growth of the NGS market is driven by rising cancer prevalence and increasing application of NGS in cancer treatment and research, the declining costs of genome sequencing, technological advancements in sequencing procedures, increasing pharmaceutical R&D expenditures, the surge in genome mapping programs, and improvements in regulatory and reimbursement scenarios for NGS-based diagnostic tests.

However, the high costs of NGS systems and consumables, the availability of alternative technologies, the low chances of identifying positive, actionable mutations for precision medicine, and ethical and legal issues related to NGS-based diagnosis restrain the growth of this market.

The increasing applications of NGS, the rising adoption of bioinformatics and genomic data management solutions, and government initiatives supporting large-scale genomic sequencing projects are expected to create growth opportunities for the players operating in the NGS market.

However, the lack of skilled professionals and regulatory and standardization concerns in diagnostic testing are major challenges to market growth. The increasing demand for NGS automation, the development of portable sequencing technologies, and increasing partnerships and collaborations among NGS instrument manufacturers to expand and improve product offerings are prominent trends in the next-generation sequencing market.

Based on offering, in 2023, the consumables segment is expected to account for the largest share of the market. The growing adoption of NGS technology in research institutes, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, increasing adoption of NGS for genome mapping purposes, increasing the demand for consumables.

Based on sequencing type, targeted genome sequencing is expected to account for the largest share of the market. Targeted genome sequencing offers high throughput sequencing, high reliability, and low cost compared to WGS and WES, which are driving this segment’s growth.

Based on technology, the sequencing by synthesis segment is expected to account for the largest share of the market. Less time for sequencing, error-free results, and low cost compared to other technologies are leading to the largest share of the segment. Additionally, the growing incorporation of this technology in NGS products further supports the largest share of this segment.

Based on application, in 2023, the clinical applications segment is expected to register the highest CAGR in the global NGS market. The increase in cancer cases, growing research activities to develop genome-based cancer medicine, and applications of NGS in reproductive health diagnosis contribute to this segment’s large market share.

Based on end user, the hospitals and diagnostic laboratories segment is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. High patient inflows at hospitals and diagnostic laboratories, a wider range of services and treatments, and growing collaborations between hospitals and NGS supplier companies are supporting the growth of this segment.
