Share This Post

Since the first human genome was sequenced in 2003, at a cost of $3 billion, Genomics companies have been innovating to provide less expensive, faster, and higher quality solutions. This high-growth industry is currently valued at an estimated $15.5 billion, with further growth predicted to tip 8.6% over the next five years. 

Consolidation in the genomics industry is common for technology companies through M&A or partnerships to build complementary solutions. We are also seeing expansion in NIPT (non-invasive prenatal testing). The industry has an expanding base of funding from venture capitalists. Research and new technologies are quickly moving to commercial applications and are raising significant amounts of capital. In 2019, the total investment in genomics was nearly $5 billion with investments in 154 companies. 

In our Genomics Industry Report, we explore a sector overview, demand trends, industry transaction activity, insights into select active acquirers, and more.
