Global Bioinformatics Market - Segmented by Technology, Applications, End-user and Geography - Growth, Trends and Forecasts (2018 - 2023)
Bioinformatics is the application of computational technology to gather, store, analyze, and integrate biological data. This data is used to procure information that can be applied to gene-based drug discovery and development, protein structure studies, and in order to determine the therapeutic efficacy of drugs. The global bioinformatics market is expected to register a CAGR of 19.8% during 2018-2023 (the forecast period).
Growth in Proteomics and Genomics
With the completion of the Human Genome Project (in 2001) and the Human Proteome Project, a vast amount of data has generated, which has given a new dimension to the profiling of proteomic and genomic analyses. The data generated, out of these projects, has driven the growth of the global bioinformatics market, due to the growing demand for tools and platforms for data management, data retrieval, sequence alignment, structure prediction, and other bioinformatics applications.
Other factors driving the market include increasing government spending and rise in R&D initiatives.
Rising Data Complexity Concerns
A large amount of genomic and proteomic data, generated through various sequencing and structure prediction methods, are highly complex. The complexity of the generated data ranges from missing values to excess unwanted information. Data dissemination has been a major challenge for the growth of the bioinformatics market.
Reimbursement hurdles for the manufacturer and high-capital investment are also restraining the market growth.
North America to Dominate the Market
The bioinformatics market has been segmented on the basis of technology, application, end user, and geography. By geography, the market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and South America.
Owing to the factors, like the growing demand for bioinformatics across genomics and proteomics research, technological advancements, increasing research funding, and the presence of a large number of market players and research institutes in the region, North America dominates the global bioinformatics market.
