• The presence of major product and service providers of NGS oncology and services in regions such as North America and Europe significantly impacts the market. For instance, Illumina, Inc. provides an NGS sequencing platform and clinical sequencing bioinformatics services.
• Companies such as Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. expanded hematology oncology portfolio NGS with new Ion Torrent Oncomine Immune Repertoire Assays that ensure quality results. The presence of these companies has a positive impact on market growth.
Impact of COVID-19
The current global NGS oncology market study comprises next-generation sequencing (NGS)-based products and services for oncology used for diagnosing cancer, measuring cancer risk, and aiding in providing the right and personalized treatment to cancer patients. Since the market is primarily dominated by manufacturers of next-generation sequencing instruments, kits, assays, and service providers that provide gene panels and testing services using next-generation sequencing for oncology, the pandemic negatively impacted the growth of revenue generated from the market. Players in the NGS oncology market reported a decline in revenues during the initial phase of the pandemic. The decrease was primarily attributed to the lockdown in the regions that disrupted the supply chain, thereby hampering the cancer diagnostic testing.
Additionally, a halt in research and development activities pertaining to the use of next-generation sequencing for oncology to discover novel variants and develop novel products and services for the market also led to a decline in revenue. However, to curb the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and contain the spread of the virus, demand for COVID-19 tests and services that detects the virus in less time increased, which led to the shift in focus of the manufacturers and service providers for developing and manufacturing testing kits and services for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 virus.
