Next-Generation Sequencing Market Size (2022 to 2027)

As per our report, the global NGS market size is estimated to grow USD 10.13 billion by 2027 from USD 4.31 billion in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 18.66% during the forecast period.

The next-generation sequencing (NGS) approach uses massively parallel processing in the formation of DNA sequencing. There are two methods to prepare the templates, namely amplified templates originated from single molecules and single DNA molecule templates. NGS plays a pivotal role in clinical practice by improving diagnosis procedures. This technique is mainly used in discovering disease-causing genes. It takes a single day to complete the entire human genome with this technique.


Increasing incidences of chronic diseases are undoubtedly a significant factor propelling global next-generation sequencing market growth.

Growing investments in research institutes in the biotechnology field are accelerating the growth of the market. The rise in the need to improve diagnostic procedures and also to ensure quality treatment is also propelling the growth of this market.

Growing studies on genomes are likely to outshine the global NGS market growth.

Increasing the geriatric population is also a common factor leveling up the growth rate of this next-generation sequencing market. Growth opportunities lie in the government's rising support in introducing reimbursement schemes in favor of the public.

Next-generation sequences provide enormous cloud computing opportunities as potential data management services in the emerging markets offer numerous opportunities to the companies operating in this space. Opportunities are to be delivered due to growth in the government initiatives for the genomics projects in large-scale industries such as drug developments and research of the clinical diagnostics processes. Nowadays, the growing trend in medicine of personalized medical facilities in the next-generation sequencing market.


The cost of installation and maintenance of the equipment in laboratories is a bit expensive, which is slowly impeding the market's growth.

Lack of standardization is also an attribute limiting the demand of the NGS market. The major challenge faced by the global next-generation sequencing market is the interpretation of the data's DNA sequence, acceleration of the analysis of the data, shortage in the storage of the data generated in the bottleneck. There are serious issues such as data originating from the diverse datasets usage, which needs to be addressed. Poor in records of the data sequences. Some DNA’s like short fragments should be analyzed and compared with the reference databases, which is against but efficient and fast. To face these many challenges, many solutions were proposed by the commercial software and industries, but still existing many hardships to handle.

Another significant challenge is updating the data to the central or disturbed data storage and analysis services by the clients' computers and the data parallelization using the grid or cloud solutions.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global NGS market:

Next-generation sequences have a crucial and essential role in the clinical labs and research to fight against the SARScov-2, which results in the COVID-19. When the world is fighting against the dangerous disease which is the COVD-19 pandemic, there is an evolution in the genome, giving vital insights on spreading the impact on different people. To fight against the COVID-19, the researchers are, and scientists together found information by the next generation sequence. Flomics are the latest research findings active in monitoring and contributing to the specialty in the following generation sequencing field. It helps find the cruciality of the interaction between the viral and host genomes, which helps find the individuals levels of riskiness.

The next-generation sequence gives an idea with a deep understanding of the disease and the impact of the pandemic on humans' health. The biotech partners, which are national and international, joined the force by Flomics with the specialization of the NGS tests, which helps develop the solutions based on the cloud to detect the COVID-19. Transformation of the raw data into interpretable clinical information will help manage the pandemic without bioinformatics expertise but within a few clicks from any place like clinics, hospitals, and research laboratories.
