Single-cell Sequencing Services and Technologies Market, 2020-2030 - Global Current Landscape and the Future Opportunities

Dublin, Dec. 17, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Single-cell Sequencing Services and Technologies Market, 2020-2030" report has been added to's offering.

The 'Single-cell Sequencing Services and Technologies Market, 2020-2030' report features an extensive study of the current landscape and the future opportunities associated with single-cell sequencing services/technologies.

Over the years, technological advances in the field of genomics have enabled pharma companies to adopt a more personalized and targeted approach to drug/therapy development.

One of the key objectives of the report was to understand the primary growth drivers and estimate the future opportunity within the market. Based on several parameters, such as number of single-cell samples sequenced annually, average cost of sequencing, and growth trends across various geographies, we have provided an informed estimate of the likely evolution of the market, in the mid to long term, for the period 2020-2030.

Specifically, next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies have enabled millions of human genomes across diverse ethnicities, to be sequenced. The large volumes of genomic data from the aforementioned sequencing studies have led to the generation of valuable insights on individuals' likely responses to different treatment regimens. Innovation in this field have made NGS technologies increasingly affordable and accessible. In fact, the cost of sequencing a single genome has dropped from USD ~3 billion (Human Genome Project 1990) to USD 1,000 (Illumina sequencing kits) over the last two decades.

However, NGS based analyses are limited to offering averaged insights on gene expression. In other words, this method is incapable of quantifying nucleic acid content in individual cells, and thereby, offering gene expression information at single cell resolution. To better understand the interactions of individual cells with their microenvironment, advanced molecular probing solutions are required. In this context, high-throughput single-cell analysis, an emerging analytical technique, is considered a powerful means for studying individual cells, enabling researchers to study gene expression at single cell resolution.

Single-cell sequencing techniques offer many advantages over traditional genomic analyses, enabling the detection of complex and rare cell populations, and elucidating development trajectories of distinct cell lineages. Despite the potential to be used across diverse segments in biotechnology and medical research, this technique is still limited to early-stage research activities. This is primarily attributed to certain challenges associated with data processing and quality control.

Further, the lack of versatile in silico tools is also considered among the major roadblocks to meaningful analysis and interpretation of single cell sequencing data. Additionally, the high cost of process execution and affiliated labor intensive protocols are other barriers to the adoption of since-cell sequencing technology. However, the introduction of the RNA-QC-Chain tool in 2018 (an effort to address the data processing and quality control related challenges) and the Human Cell Atlas project (responsible for developing the first whole transcriptome map of human cells), are considered prominent milestones in the field of single cell genomics.

Presently, experts believe that the single-cell genomics market in North America, may reach USD 5 billion by 2025. Given, the potential of single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) technologies to probe into previously unelucidated cellular mechanisms, and identify novel biomarkers/therapeutic targets, they are likely to witness significant adoption in biomedical research over the next decade.
