DNA Sequencing Market

DNA Sequencing Market is Expected to be Flourished by Accelerated Adoption of DNA Sequencing In Clinical Diagnostics

DNA sequencing is a process of determining the nucleic acid sequence—the order of nucleotides in DNA. It includes any method or technology that is used to determine the order of the four bases—adenine, guanine, cytosine, and thymine—in a strand of DNA. DNA sequencing is used in clinical diagnostics for identification and detection of genetic diseases. It helps in identifying genetic links for certain diseases like cancer, muscular dystrophy, hemophilia, and cystic fibrosis. Technological advancements have lowered costs and improved accuracy of DNA sequencing. This has accelerated adoption of DNA sequencing in clinical diagnostics for prenatal testing, predicting disease risks, and selecting optimal therapies.

The global DNA sequencing market is estimated to be valued at US$ 6802.2 Mn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 3.2% over the forecast period 2024 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Dynamics:
Accelerated adoption of DNA sequencing in clinical diagnostics is a major driver for the DNA sequencing market. Advancements like next generation sequencing techniques have made DNA sequencing more affordable and accessible for clinical use. This is expected to drive higher demand and adoption of DNA sequencing by diagnostic laboratories and hospitals. Further, increasing awareness and understanding about precision medicine is also fueling use of DNA sequencing for diagnosis, prognosis and selecting targeted therapies based on patient’s genetic profile. With continuous technological innovation DNA sequencing is expected to play a more pivotal role in clinical diagnostics thereby flourishing this market over the forecast period.

Segment Analysis
There are four major segments in the DNA sequencing market namely, instruments, consumables, services and bioinformatics. The consumables segment accounts for the largest share in the market currently owing to repetitive purchase of reagents and kits required for each sequencing run.
