Global Long-read Sequencing Market: Overview

  • Long-read sequencing, also known as third-generation sequencing, is a class of DNA sequencing method. Long-read technologies are helping to overcome the early limitations in accuracy, throughput, and broadening their application in genomics.
  • Long-read sequencing offers a number of advantages over short-read sequencing. Short-read sequencers such as Illumina’s NovaSeq, HiSeq produce read up to 600 bases of DNA, while long-read sequencing technologies can generate read more than 10,000 bases. Moreover, long-reads can improve genome assembly, mapping certainty, transcript isoform identification, and detection of structural variants of DNA.
  • Wider use of such long-read sequencing technologies in the clinical context may rapidly improve the understanding of cancer, pathogen evolution, drug resistance, and genetic diversity in complex regions of the genome that have important implications for clinical care

Key Drivers and Restraint of Global Long-read Sequencing Market

  • Long-read sequencing technologies are rapidly moving toward the support of high resolution histocompatibility leucocyte antigen (HLA) typing for transplant registries in certain regions as high resolution typing potentially provides better matching of organs and clinical outcomes of patients undergoing transplantation show good results.
  • Using long-range PCR amplicons with barcoding and long-read technology also allows better description of genes from pseudogenes, such as for sequencing PKD1 for diagnosing autosomal-dominant polycystic kidney disease, for which diagnostic accuracy of NGS technologies has been limited and this drives the demand for long-read sequencing.
  • However, higher cost per base relative to short read sequencing is one of the factors that are restraining the market
