Drug Discovery and Soil Health Assessment Broaden Revenue Streams for Research Companies

The revenue of drug discovery is slated to witness huge leap from ~22% in 2019 and reach ~26% by the end of 2030 in the metagenomics market. Hence, research companies are adopting metagenomics medicine mapping systems in order to advance in the field of drug discovery. On the other hand, metagenomics is playing a pivotal role in the assessment of soil health and freshwater quality. These domains are broadening revenue streams for companies in the metagenomics market. Unprecedented environmental events and impact on the biodiversity are key drivers favoring market growth.

Innovative Bioinformatics Tools Help Overcome Bottlenecks of Complex Unassembled Reads

Apart from drug discovery and clinical diagnostics, companies in the metagenomics market are increasing their focus in food genomics in order to broaden their revenue streams. As such, food & beverages are estimated to dictate the third-highest revenue among all applications in the metagenomics market. The growing demand for safe food production and preservation is creating incremental opportunities for companies in the market for metagenomics.

Striking the right balance between food enzymes and microbes is becoming the key focus point for research labs and healthcare companies in order to ensure safe food production and preservation. Hence, companies are increasing their R&D activities in food microbiology. As stated by molecular biologist Dr. Nur Hasan from CosmosID – a leading next generation sequencing services company, placing together complex unassembled reads and the lack of comprehensive databases are some of the bottlenecks that researchers face in the field of food quality and safety. Hence, providers of end-to-end microbiome platforms are increasing efforts to develop integrated platforms with innovative bioinformatics tools that facilitate ultra-fast metagenomics analysis.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

The automated placement of COVID-19 with closest known viruses is being made possible with next-gen metagenomics analysis platforms. Microbial ecologists in the metagenomics market are extensively using shotgun metagenomics to assess the microbial diversity in soil. However, limited sequence assembly from highly complex samples poses a bottleneck for microbial ecologists. Hence, companies should increase awareness about flow cytometry-enabled mini-metagenomics to help microbial ecologists capture expanded microbial diversity from forest soil.

Metagenomic sequencing holds potential in the diagnosis of neuroinfectious diseases. Bioinformatics technologies are being deployed for the study of plant-associated microbial communities. Integrated bioinformatics tools are playing a key role in meeting specificity requirements in food safety applications.
