RNA Sequencing: Life Sciences’ Transformative $2.6 Billion Industry

The RNA sequencing market continues to offer potent tools with the potential to usher in significant transformations in healthcare in the foreseeable future. Over the past decade, there has been a remarkable surge in product launches, novel applications, and a rush of end-user labs eager to become major competitors in this $2.6 billion industry, according to The Market for RNA Sequencing, 3rd Edition, a new report for sale by leading medical and diagnostic market research firm Kalorama Information.  

Since around 2008, when the first RNA sequencing experiments were published, the RNA sequencing products market has exhibited robust growth, a trend that has accelerated in recent years. The significance of RNA sequencing is increasingly acknowledged across various disease areas. RNA sequencing is increasingly perceived as a valuable tool capable of providing answers that may elude DNA sequencing alone.

In recent years, various research domains and approaches employing RNA sequencing have gained significant momentum, gradually making inroads into clinical applications such as RNA-based therapeutics, vaccines, gene editing, and personalized medicine. The field of single-cell sequencing has experienced rapid expansion, while the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the scientific community’s familiarity with RNA analysis as a whole. Data analysis remains a pivotal component of this market, and, akin to other segments in the life sciences, numerous innovations are intertwined with artificial intelligence and cloud-based computing.

The RNA sequencing field has also demonstrated significant potential for translation into clinical applications. Consequently, it has exhibited robust growth compared to other life science research techniques, including other next-generation sequencing (NGS) applications. NGS technologies have emerged as powerful tools that enable laboratories to conduct high-impact experiments at reduced costs, yielding new categories of data and thereby expanding possibilities in biomedical research.

Since its inception nearly two decades ago, the adoption of NGS has become pervasive in the life sciences. Continuous technological enhancements have led to improved performance and output, with prices gradually decreasing, albeit with some stabilization. Laboratories have harnessed this technology for a diverse range of applications, including various forms of RNA sequencing.
