The Next-generation Sequencing Services Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 20.4% from 2021 to 2028 to reach $14.1 billion by 2028.

Next generation sequencing (NGS) refers to a DNA sequencing technology that has revolutionized genomic research. The potential capabilities of NGS allow the entire human genome sequence in a single day. Genome sequencing was traditionally performed using Sanger’s sequencing method, which is comparatively slower and a tedious process. However, NGS has superseded the former in terms of cost-efficiency, run-time, and wider clinical applications. Some of the popular services offered under the arena of NGS include targeted sequencing that is vital and highly informative in case of drug development and diagnostic applications. NGS has recently become popular in the diagnosis of immunological disorders, infectious diseases, non-invasive prenatal diagnostics, hereditary disorders and helps in therapeutic decision making. In April 2018, the U.S. FDA released a set of guidelines for the design, development, and validation of NGS tests and had approved several NGS-based tests and targeted therapies.
