Targeted sequencing is a cost-effective and rapid way to detect novel and known variants in selected genetic or genomic regions. There are several different methods of DNA/RNA sequencing depending on the scale of the region being sequenced. Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is the most used method for targeted sequencing, which offers good scalability, speed, and resolution to evaluate the targeted regions of interest. Other methods include sanger sequencing and CRISPR.

The global targeted sequencing market is projected to reach $10,976.1 million by 2032 from $3,198.8 million in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 13.12% during the forecast period 2022-2032. The growth in the global targeted sequencing market is expected to be driven by the increased use of targeted sequencing in clinical laboratories and diagnostic applications, especially in cancer research.

Impact of COVID-19

In March 2019, the world was hit by a storm with the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which led to the shutting down of the entire world and everybody getting tested for the virus. As the amount of testing increased, it became important to increase the pace of testing as well. Research in sequencing the genome of the virus amplified, and governments provided lots of grants for the sequencing of the virus for syringe manufacturing.

The amplicon-based next-generation sequencing (NGS) method was widely used for genome sequencing. This is due to the ease of use and low sequencing cost of this method. This has made it the method of choice among many laboratories. COVID-19 genome sequencing is accomplished using a probe-based liquid phase hybridization technique, which can then be followed by NGS sequencing. The appeal of using target capture NGS methodology has the ability to enrich the limitless repertoire of genetic loci without the constant need to update primers and to deal with multiplexing issues that are encountered by amplicon-based approaches. That’s another reason why virome target capture NGS methodologies are being developed. The target capture-based NGS approach has another advantage, i.e., it is better at sequencing degraded samples as compared to other NGS approaches. End-to-end target-based NGS solution, which is validated for concurrent detection and sequencing characterization for respiratory viruses like SARS-CoV-2 and other respiratory pathogens, is a powerful tool for genomic surveillance in the post-COVID-19 era and can play a crucial role in the timely generation and dissemination of the genomic data.

Recent Developments in Global Targeted Sequencing Market

•    In August 2022, QIAGEN N.V. launched its QIAseq targeted DNA pro panels and the QIAseq UPXome RNA library kit as an expansion of its next-generation sequencing (NGS) portfolio. Both these launches lead to the growth of the company's sequencing product portfolio.
•    In September 2022, BGI Group (MGI Tech Co., Ltd.) launched its DNBSEQ-G99, which is a mid to low-range throughput sequencer. This makes this sequencer especially suitable for targeted gene sequencing, small gene sequencing, and high and rapid-quality data output.
•    In June 2022, Agilent Technologies, Inc. announced its collaboration with the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) G5g powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) Graviton2 processors. The NVIDIA T4G Tensor Core GPUs, combined with NVIDIA Clara Parabricks' advanced genomics capabilities, improved Agilent Technologies, Inc.'s cloud-native Alissa Reporter software. This collaboration is expected to streamline the company's SureSelect family NGS assays, which comprise a wide range of custom and catalog panels.
