Bioinformatics Market Overview
The Bioinformatics market was valued at USD 7305.82 million in 2017, is expected to register a CAGR of about 20.75% during the forecast period, 2018-2023. Bioinformatics is the application of computational technology to gather, store, analyze, and integrate biological data. This data is used to procure information that can be applied to gene-based drug discovery and development, protein structure studies, and the determination of the therapeutic efficacy of drugs. Increasing demand for nucleic acid and protein sequencing, increasing initiatives from governments and private organizations, accelerating growth of proteomics and genomics, and increasing research on molecular biology and drug discovery are the major factors which are leading to the growth of the market. However, lack of well-defined standards and common data formats for integration of data, and data complexity concerns and lack of user-friendly tools are hindering the market growth.
Accelerating Growth of Proteomics and Genomics Propels the Growth of Bioinformatics Market
With the completion of the Human Genome Project (in 2001) and the Human Proteome Project, a vast amount of data has generated, which has given a new dimension to the profiling of proteomic and genomic analyses. The data generated, out of these projects, has driven the growth of the global bioinformatics market, due to the growing demand for tools and platforms for data management, data retrieval, sequence alignment, structure prediction, and other bioinformatics applications. This data has become the new face of drug discovery and biological research in the past few years. Proteomics and genomics have made the maximum contribution to the areas of process development of recombinant protein production, genome-wide expression profiling tools, identification of disease-vulnerable population, and drug design.
Other factors driving the market include increasing government spending and rise in R&D initiatives.
Data Complexity Concerns and Lack of User-Friendly Tools Hinder the Growth of Bioinformatics Market
A large amount of genomic and proteomic data, generated through various sequencing and structure prediction methods, are highly complex. The complexity of the generated data ranges from missing values to excess unwanted information. Data dissemination has been a major challenge for the growth of the bioinformatics market. Immense studies in protein-protein interactions, multi-resolution structure prediction, and molecular dynamics simulation with quantum chemical forces have fostered the development of probabilistic models and algorithms, which are required for the analysis of those studies. However, the techniques and tools that are being developed are comparatively not in pace with bulk of the data that is being generated through various sequencing projects. This factor is restraining the growth of the bioinformatics market.
Reimbursement hurdles for the manufacturer and high-capital investment are also restraining the market growth.
