To secure research data and reduce discovery budgets, many drug discovery companies are opting for developing in-house bioinformatics tools over outsourcing their bioinformatics projects. Data security threats are the main challenges to success in pre-competitive collaborations between bioinformatics researchers and companies, which reduces the outsourcing of bioinformatics projects.
Major Growth Drivers:
Factors such as increasing public-private sector funding for bioinformatics services, the shortage of skilled bioinformatics professionals leading to increased outsourcing of biofinformatics projects, and growing applications of bioinformatics in various industries are expected to drive the growth of the bioinformatics services market.
Expected Revenue Growth:
The global bioinformatics services market is expected to reach USD 3.53 billion by 2023 from USD 1.70 billion in 2018, at a CAGR of 15.7% during the forecast period.
Accessories to Fuel the Growth of Bioinformatics Services Market :
Growth in the global bioinformatics services market is mainly driven by the growing applications of bioinformatics in various industries, increasing public-private sector funding for bioinformatics services, and the shortage of skilled bioinformatics professionals leading to increased outsourcing of bioinformatics projects. The reducing cost of sequencing and growing volume of data generated during sequencing, growing focus on outsourcing for the management of large volumes of data, and the emerging markets are also expected to present growth opportunities for players in the market.
