Dublin, Oct. 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Long Read Sequencing Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Product, By Technology (Nanopore Sequencing), By Workflow, By Application, By End-Use, By Region And Segment Forecasts, 2023-2030" report has been added to's offering.

The global long read sequencing market size is expected to reach USD 3.78 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 30.92%

As sequencing methods continue to play a pivotal role in pharmaceutical advancements, the expanding knowledge of long read sequencing adds cumulative market value. The adoption of these technologies for structural variant analysis is poised to be a driving force throughout the forecast period.

Ongoing research endeavors are expected to provide manufacturers with a slight advantage as they delve into the development of advanced long read sequencing methods, opening up a plethora of opportunities in the market. Additionally, in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, key industry players are collaborating with public health laboratories and researchers worldwide to facilitate rapid sequencing of the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.

Companies are actively engaged in devising workflows for characterizing a wide array of pathogens within samples. Notably, Oxford Nanopore Technologies recently introduced LamPORE, a scalable, cost-effective, and swift assay for detecting SARS-CoV-2. The rising prevalence of genetic disorders, coupled with increased R&D investments by leading manufacturers in long-read sequencing technology, is poised to propel the industry forward. Long read sequencing is particularly valuable for studying genetic disorders with well-known or strongly suspected disease loci.

Moreover, these technologies hold the potential to partially overcome the limitations of clinical disease research relying on next-generation sequencing. Their distinct advantage lies in the use of longer reads from a single DNA molecule. Another driving factor for market expansion is the growing acceptance of modern methods in medical diagnosis. The portability and real-time capabilities of long-read sequencing technology further contribute to its increasing demand.

Furthermore, it plays a crucial role in creating precise reference maps of chromosome centromeres. Many biotech firms are at the forefront of developing cutting-edge technologies that combine innovative approaches to library preparation with genomic analysis tools.

Numerous studies highlight the utility of long-read sequencing technology in identifying novel harmful mutations in human disorders with unidentified genetic origins. This presents a wealth of potential for researchers to leverage whole-genome sequencing (WGS) technology in advancing medical genetics.
