The Sequencing Kits Market is Projected to Reach $21.9 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 8.1% During the forecast period, Says Meticulous Research® . The advent of advanced sequencing technologies such as NGS, nanopore, and single-molecule real-time (SMRT) sequencing has accelerated biological and medical research and discovery, allowing biologists and medical scientists to collect massive amounts of DNA sequence data rapidly and cost-effectively. In the past few years, the availability of advanced sequencing technologies has lowered sequencing costs and significantly reduced the time required for genome sequencing. According to the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), the cost of sequencing a human genome decreased from USD 29,092 in 2010 to USD 562 in 2021, significantly increasing the adoption of sequencing kits & reagents.
Sequencing kits and reagents assist in the sequencing process by providing precise and helpful information on DNA sequences. Sequencing kits & reagents are used in several research and clinical applications, including drug discovery, precision medicine, agriculture & animal research, and reproductive health. These kits and reagents allow sample preparation for most of the sequencing platforms. Furthermore, factors such as government initiatives promoting sequencing for several clinical & research applications, increasing funding for research activities, and a surge in genome mapping programs are some of the factors that have increased the demand for sequencing kits & reagents.
