Global $3.2B Microbiome Sequencing Services Market 2021-2027 - Shotgun Metagenomic Sequencing Technology Anticipated to Witness the Highest Growth -

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Global Microbiome Sequencing Services Market (2021-2027) by Technology, Application, Research Type, Laboratory Type, End-users, and Geography: Impact of COVID-19, Ansoff Analysis, Competitive Quadrant" report has been added to's offering.

The Global Microbe Sequencing Services Market is estimated to be worth USD 1.2 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 3.21 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 17.8%.

Effective understanding and application of microbiome sequencing services would help in the commercialization of personalized medicine and diet. Hence, the market is extensively driven by research-based communities, especially in the developed economies like the US, which has the presence of NHGRI (National Human Genome Research Institute) supporting the growth of the market.

Due to advancements in technology, there has been a rise in the NGS (Next-Gen Sequencing) to generate microbiome data. Besides, techniques such as novel high-throughput sequencing and new software tools are transforming microbiome studies by providing service at high quality, speed, and high cost. Many companies are additionally concentrating on novel exome sequencing and RNA sequencing applications in niche market segments.

Specific factors that have led to the growth of this market are the rising use of microbiome in genomics, along with the reduced cost of sequencing. However, other factors such as the lack of expertise in the data analysis for the microbiomes with advanced tools shall hinder the growth of this market.
