The global Gene Expression Market size is anticipated to reach USD 19.4 billion by 2028 registering a CAGR of 9.96% from 2021 to 2028, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Rise in investments for the development of alternative drug discovery approaches coupled with an increase in research activities for genetic studies is expected to drive the global market.
A rise in awareness about the potential application of genetic studies has led to an increase in investments for the development and launch of novel products. For instance, in August 2020, Lexogen GmbH launched the QuantSeq-Pool Sample-Barcoded 3’ mRNA-Seq Library Prep Kit to expedite multiplexing capacities during gene expression profiling. The company’s new QuantSeq-Pool kit also facilitates the sequencing of up to 36,864 RNA samples in parallel, thereby reducing cost and time.
Furthermore, the decrease in cost associated with sequencing posed as a major driver in the last few years. According to the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), the cost of sequencing per genome reduced from USD 46.77 thousand in 2010 to USD 0.689 thousand in 2020. This dramatic 98.5% decline in sequencing costs within a decade has increased research involving genomic expression profiling studies.
