Third Generation Sequencing Market

Third Generation Sequencing Market is driven by Continuous Technological Advancements

Third generation sequencing, also known as single molecule sequencing, enables analysis of DNA at the single molecule level without requiring amplification. This allows DNA sequencing to be done more accurately and rapidly. Third generation sequencing technologies offer advantages over second generation ones like longer reads, faster speed, lower costs and portability. These have led to third generation sequencers finding numerous applications across various industries. With whole genome sequencing becoming more affordable and accessible, it is enabling deeper understanding of genetic variations associated with disease phenotypes and population history. This information is invaluable for biomarker discovery, drug development and precision medicine.

The global Third Generation Sequencing Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 10.1 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 13.% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:

One of the major trends driving the third generation sequencing market is the increasing adoption of single-cell sequencing techniques. Single-cell sequencing helps provide insights into cell-to-cell genetic and transcriptomic variability within tissues and tumors. It is gaining prominence as it allows researchers to analyze cellular heterogeneity at an unprecedented resolution. This has broad applications in developmental biology, immunology, cancer research and more. Promising single-molecule, single-cell sequencing platforms by companies such as 10x Genomics, Mission Bio and Fluidigm are expanding the potential of single-cell omics. Consequently, single-cell sequencing is expected to revolutionize our understanding of cell biology and disease etiology over the coming years.
