Global DNA Sequencing Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The global DNA sequencing market size is forecasted to hike at a CAGR of 14.2% from 2022 to 2027. This market is estimated to be worth USD 11.14 billion by 2027 and USD 5.73 billion in 2022.

The DNA sequence is used to identify the structure of a DNA molecule in laboratories. Researchers will require this information to identify a DNA molecule's genetic data and understand its function in the body.

Impact of COVID-19 on the DNA sequencing market:

The COVID-19 pandemic had a favorable effect on the DNA sequencing market under investigation because it raised interest in DNA sequencing technology for developing treatments and diagnostics. For instance, the FDA granted an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the Helix COVID-19 NGS test in August 2020. This test is an amplicon-based next-generation sequencing (NGS) test designed for the qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2 nucleic acid in upper respiratory specimens from people suspected of having COVID-19 infection. Therefore, the market is expected to maintain its high growth rate over the forecast period due to the growing DNA sequencing-based research and development activities in developing diagnostic tools or efficient therapies for COVID-19.


The global DNA sequencing market is majorly driven by its high accuracy rate/speed rate.

DNA sequencing over the microarray and other genomic analysis methods offers accurate results from low sample input. The discovery of DNA variants has been made possible by rapid developments in bioinformatics and sequencing technologies. These developments also identify variations linked to a higher risk of disease. In addition, the efficacy of DNA sequencing in clinical diagnosis applications is increased by the widespread use of Next-generation sequencing (NGS) and whole-genome sequencing (WGS), which allow several genes to be examined simultaneously on a single diagnostic platform.

From 2D sequencing in the 1970s to DNA sequencing, sequencing technology has advanced significantly. Platforms like Illumina/ Solexa, ABI/ SOLiD, 454/Roche, and Helicos have recently opened up possibilities for high-throughput functional genomics research. Furthermore, biologists and informatics professionals have been concentrating on creating better genomes, which have been made feasible by newer sequencing technologies, unique ways of finding chromosome sequences and enhanced DNA sequencing software.

In addition, the DNA sequencing market's cost-effective nature is also favoring the market's growth rate. As a result, DNA sequencing can be used for various applications such as drug discovery, oncology studies, personalized medicine, forensics, biomarkers, etc. Furthermore, factors such as a surge in sequencing applications, growing R&D investments, the increase in the numerous genome mapping programs, and technological advancements are also fuelling the growth of the global DNA sequencing market.


The global DNA sequencing market is constrained by factors such as expensive equipment, computational difficulties, repetition content, specialist skills, and ethical concerns.
