A Chapter by Markets Insights

The global genomics market size was valued at USD 20.1 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.35% from 2021 to 2028.


Genomics market is one of those upbeat markets that grows year-on-year with one of the highest growth rates. According to a market research company, Grand View Research, Inc., this market was valued at USD 20.1 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at CAGR of 15.35% from 2021 to 2028. These numbers speak volumes about the potential this market holds.

Genomics �" What & Why?

To understand genomics as a subject, we need to go through some of the minor but important definitions that form a substantial part of genomics.

  • DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid) �" It is a molecule formed by two polynucleotide chains in a double helix formation, having all the genetic information for the development, functioning, growth and reproduction of all known organisms and several viruses.
  • Genome �"Genome is the name given to all the genetic material of an organism. By genetic material, I mean �" DNA, RNA (in RNA Viruses), also mitochondrial DNA, and chloroplast DNA- all of it.

Now that we are up to speed, lets jump right into the Genomics part.

What is Genomics �" Genomics is that part of biology which deals with all the operations on genomes, such as finding out information about its structure, function and evolution, along with mapping and editing it. So basically, it aims at the collective characterization and quantification of all of an organism’s genes, their interrelations and influence on the organism.
