Digital Genome Market is Estimated To Witness High Growth Owing To Technological Advancements

The digital genome market is estimated to be valued at US$ 26.59 Billion in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 18% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:
The digital genome market is associated with deciphering whole genome sequencing data and their applications. It enables to create whole genome databases and their clinical implementation. Digital genome allows to develop effective personalized medicines, cancer diagnosis and determine genetic predispositions. It helps researcher to find genetic variations linked with common as well as rare diseases.

Market key trends:
One of the key driver of the Global Digital Genome Market is technological advancements in next generation sequencing which has led to lower sequencing cost and huge volume of sequencing data. As sequencing cost decreased from US$ 3 billion in 2001 to around US$ 1000 in 2021 per genome, more sequence data is being generated. This genomic data needs to be efficiently stored, managed and analyzed which fuels the growth of digital genome market. According to National Human Genome Research Institute, over 10,000 genomes were sequenced in 2001 which increased to approximately 25 million genomes sequenced worldwide in 2021. Such huge volumes of sequencing data requires advanced analytics tools and services provided by digital genome companies contributing to the market growth.

Porter’s Analysis

Threat of new entrants: New players find it difficult to enter the market due to high capital requirement setting up infrastructure and R&D for genomic services. Established players enjoy economies of scale.

Bargaining power of buyers: Buyers have moderate bargaining power as they can choose from various service providers and products. However, switching costs are high due to proprietary technology and analysis involved.

Bargaining power of suppliers: A few number of suppliers exist for key equipment, reagents and consumables used. However, established players develop their own products minimizing dependence.

Threat of new substitutes: New substitutes pose low threat as DNA sequencing technology involves huge R&D and established protocols. Alternatives require validation before adoption.
