The global metagenomic market is expected to grow with the CAGR of 16%-18% by 2025

   January 13, 2021
According to a new market report published by Lucintel, the future of the metagenomic market looks promising with opportunities in applications, such as infectious disease diagnosis, environmental remediation, gut microbe characterization, biotechnology, biofuel, and agriculture. The global metagenomic market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 16%-18% from 2020 to 2025. The major drivers for this market are surge in the metagenomic experiment collaboration, adoption of metagenomic applications, and growing advanced sequencing platforms.

Metagenomics is a study of microbial communities where we can't separate one microbe from another. In this market, instrument & software and consumables are the major product segments. Lucintel forecasts that consumables will remain the largest product segment over the forecast period due to their high adoption in the pre-sequencing, which is one of the most important steps in the overall metagenomic sequencing protocol. Therefore, this factor continues to contribute to the dominant position of this segment in the market.

Within this market, gut microbe characterization will remain the largest application type segment over the forecast period. The human intestinal microbiota is a homeostatic ecosystem, which has a significant impact on human health, and the disruption of this equilibrium leads to increased susceptibility to infections by various pathogens.

North America will remain the largest region over the forecast period due to increasing implementation of DNA sequencing across metagenomic applications in this region. In addition, rapid adoption of novel sequencing technologies in this region has contributed to its dominance.

Agilent Technologies, Enterome, F. Hoffmann-La Roche., Illumina, Oxford Nanopore Technologies, Pacific Biosciences of California, PerkinElmer, Qiagen, Swift Biosciences, and Thermo Fisher Scientific are among the major suppliers in the global metagenomic market.
