USFDA plays a vital role in the microbiome sequencing service market; they take responsibility to deliver safety and efficacy. FDA examines the part of the microbiome in the antimicrobial resistance in humans also in animals.


Rising demand for next-generation sequencing, expansion of microbiome sequencing service application, and reduction in the cost of Sequencing are the factors driving the global microbiome sequencing services market growth.

The increasing scale of pharmaceutical industries, growing awareness, and benefits of microbiome sequencing for cancer treatment are fuelling the market. The rise in the incidences of chronic diseases is significantly influencing the demand of the market. The growth of the global microbiome sequencing services market is further driven by the rise in the research and development institutes in the biological field, growing studies over genomics, and increasing incidences of chronic diseases.

Additionally, increasing spending on health care in urban areas and growing support from the government through investments fuel the demand for the microbiome sequencing services market. Also, rising priority for early diagnosis as some diseases may have a complete cure when diagnosed at the starting stage drives the demand for the market.


The lack of skilled persons in operating systems is the biggest challenge hampering the global microbiome sequencing services market growth.

Stringent rules and regulations by the government and the cost for installing and maintaining the equipment is a little high. These are further expected to limit the growth of the global microbiome sequencing services market. Lack of innovation with intensive analysis can hamper the market growth. The smaller number of technicians, physicians, and scientists is slowly limiting the market's growth rate. The high of equipment in laboratories is also impeding the growth rate of the microbiome sequencing services market.

COVID-19 impact on Microbiome Sequencing Services Market:

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is caused by the coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) of the extreme acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and has resulted in a global pandemic as well as restrictions on public and private life. Microbiome sequencing is a technique for studying the microflora of human biota to obtain a good understanding of human microbes and their roles in health and disease. The commercialization of personalized medicine and diet will be helped by a better understanding and implementation of microbiome sequencing services. Clinical researchers are interested in the microbiomes associated with upper respiratory tract infections, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and COVID-19 diseases. The microbiome diversity profiles and associated microbial genomic features discovered in COVID-19 and non-COVID (COPD and URTI) samples could be useful in developing microbiome-based diagnostics and therapeutics for COVID-19 and non-COVID respiratory diseases. As a result, clinical trials worldwide have been challenged, with unique consequences for the rapidly emerging microbiome research.

Microbiome sequencing involves genome sequencing of the disease-causing microorganisms, bacteria and other virus. The cells in the infected patients are collected and sent for sequencing to know the genetic behavior of the infecting foreign vectors. COVID-19 is a disease caused by the novel corona virus strains which effect lungs by causing an acute syndrome in the organs causing inflammation of respiratory tract. Due to this, the behavior of the virus has to be studied, for that genome sequencing of the human microbes is necessary. With the help of human microbial sequencing there can be a data bank repository which will further help in research involving personalized health care or for vaccine invention. 

Generally, microbiome sequencing is involved mainly in the oncology and pathology domains. In these domains genome sequencing of cancer cells is done to study the behavior. Likewise, due to the ongoing pandemic the virus strains are genetically sequenced for maintaining a data fiduciary that helps in vaccine invention. Hence as the pandemic is disrupting the life in the entire world, microbiome sequencing market is expected to grow a little faster due to the outbreak.
