The global clinical oncology next generation sequencing (NGS) market size is expected to reach USD 1.5 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., registering a CAGR of 13.2% over the forecast period. Rise in demand for personalized medicine, coupled with growth in next generation sequencing technology, is anticipated to accelerate the growth of NGS technology in clinical diagnostics.
Owing to the fact that next generation sequencing offers several advantages such as sensitivity, accuracy, and speed, this technology is anticipated to drive the oncology clinical diagnostics market. Furthermore, next generation sequencing aids in the assessment of multiple genes in a single assay, thereby eliminating the need to order several tests for determination of underlying mutation.
North America held the dominant share in the global the market for clinical oncology NGS in 2018 owing to increased focus of government bodies on cancer treatment, rise in healthcare expenditure, and presence of adequate infrastructure in the healthcare industry. Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing regional market throughout the forecast period majorly due to continuous reforms in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries in the region. Presence of untapped markets in emerging economies in the region will also benefit regional growth.
