Global NGS Data Storage Market Report 2023: Sector is Expected to Reach $6.96 Billion by 2033 at a CAGR of 18.02%

Dublin, June 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "NGS Data Storage Market - A Global and Regional Analysis: Focus on Offerings, Read Length, Sourcing Type, Application, End User, and Country Analysis - Analysis and Forecast, 2023-2033" report has been added to's offering.

The global NGS data storage market is projected to reach $6.96 billion by 2033 from $1.13 billion in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 18.02% during the forecast period 2023-2033.

The growth in the NGS data storage market is expected to be driven by the rising adoption of next-generation sequencing (NGS) tool in research laboratories that generates a huge amount of data that is stored and analyzed for actionable insights. Several companies have developed NGS informatics solutions to aid healthcare institutions and academic research centers.

Market Lifecycle Stage

NGS data is critical to researchers that offer storage solutions that are reliable while being easy to manage. Sequencing companies are adopting cloud-based storage solutions that offer several advantages, including accessibility, scalability, and cost-effectiveness.

Cloud-based storage services are provided by various big IT vendors, such as Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure. These services offer pay-as-you-go models, which make it easier for researchers to manage costs based on their data storage needs.


NGS can be used to sequence the human genome and performed extensively in research laboratories during the COVID-19 pandemic. The technology generates an enormous amount of raw data that needs substantial amounts of computational processing to yield desired results. NGS also played a crucial role in advancing the research focused on tracing the origin of COVID-19.

NGS bioinformatic pipeline was in practice during the pandemic that is defined as a series of data algorithms that are run to generate interpretable data. The technological methods of NGS are in high adoption in commercial laboratory processes and use inevitable variations in the software and computational tools. All NGS bioinformatics pipelines share several major features, including variant annotation sequence generation, variant identification, assembly and alignment, and variant visualization.

Impact of COVID-19

The SARS-CoV-2 virus changed multiple times during the pandemic through mutations and has a constantly evolving nature. Continuous monitoring of the viruses' genomes is vital for the various diagnostic assays in different locations.

Several non-commercial protocols and commercial kits were made available for amplicon SARS-CoV-2 preparation, some of which were adapted by NGS platforms. Leading market players in the NGS data storage market that offer NGS data analysis solutions are undertaking strategic partnerships and collaborations to refine their product portfolios and maintain a strong global NGS data storage market.

There was the adoption of a bioinformatics platform by research laboratories during the pandemic, and the virus is still being sequenced even during the post-pandemic era. For example, in early 2023, the latest variant of XBB.1.5, which is a subvariant of Omicron, has become the most transmissible strain of the COVID-19 virus so far.

Thus, the need to keep sequencing this virus is constant. The pandemic has also spurred genome sequencing committees around the world, which are sequencing infectious diseases like never before. An enormous amount of NGS data is being produced, which requires effective data analysis and data storage.

The petabyte (PB) and zettabyte (ZB) are required to process and analyze data in the life sciences and pharmaceutical industry. The demand for data storage is anticipated to increase more in the future with the rapid usage of cloud-based solutions offered by companies to understand the mechanism of coronavirus to prevent future outbreaks.

Recent Developments in the Global NGS Data Storage Market

  • In March 2023, Illumina, Inc. launched its first product based on its long-read technology.
