The NGS Library Preparation Market is expected to reach $6.47 billion by 2030 at a CAGR of 16% from 2023 to 2030. The growth of this market is mainly driven by the declining costs of sequencing, the increasing prevalence of cancer and genetic disorders, the growing utilization of NGS in disease diagnostics and precision medicine and rising R&D investments and healthcare expenditures. However, the availability of alternative technologies and the low chances of identifying positive actionable mutations for precision medicine restrain the growth of this market. The increasing applications of next-generation sequencing technology and collaborations between vendors to develop automated library preparation protocols are expected to create market growth opportunities. However, regulatory and standardization concerns in diagnostic testing and the limited expertise and sequencing capabilities of small & mid-sized laboratories are major challenges to the market’s growth.
