Continuous Technological Advancement in NGS Platform will Boost Market Growth

Metagenomic is a research field involving genomic analysis of microbial DNA from environmental communities. Metagenomic sequencing techniques enable researchers to analyze genes in the given sample. The method also allows for the assessment of microbial diversity and identifying the presence of microbes in various environments. Various steps are involved in metagenomics sequencing, including DNA extraction, library preparation, sequencing, assembly, annotation, and statistical analysis.

The rapid technological advancements in sequencers have enabled the advent of an efficient, portable, and easy-to-use NGS platform, which can provide a fast and accurate result. The introduction of such advanced technologies provides a competitive edge to the market players; as a result, several companies are increasingly adopting strategic alliances to maintain a strong position in the market. 

Rising adoption during COVID-19 is one of the major factors accelerating market growth.

Recent advancements in sequencing have allowed the genomes of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), to be sequenced within hours or days of a case being identified. The novel metagenomic sequencing is critical to the detection and description of the novel pathogen. Early sharing of SARS-CoV-2 genome sequences allowed molecular diagnostic assays to be designed rapidly, enhancing global preparedness.
