Global Bioinformatics Market Projected to Reach USD 9.1 Billion in 2018

By BiotechDaily International staff writers
Posted on 10 Dec 2012
Projected to record double-digit growth, the global informatics market will have the highest revenue contribution from the platforms segment.

The global bioinformatics market, estimated at USD 2.3 billion in 2012, is forecasted to reach a market size of USD 9.1 billion in 2018, at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 25.4% from 2012-2018, according to Transparency Market Research (Albany, NY, USA; www.transparencymarketresearch.com). The market growth is motivated by a rise in applications across a range of industries. The major contribution to the market demand is from fields such as pharmaceutical research and development, agriculture biotechnology, medical and clinical diagnostics, and other life-sciences related industries.

The services market currently holds a comparatively smaller market share; however, it is expected to increase considerably over the forecast period. The bioinformatics platform segment is the fastest growing market and is expected to contribute 54% of the total market growth during the same period.

Research outsourcing by pharmaceutical giants in the fields comprising bioinformatics content is a significant driver of the global bioinformatics market. These companies, in efforts to decrease time and costs on R&D activities involved in the development of new medicines and new applications for existing drugs, are looking for outsourcing services for bioinformatics knowledge and management tools, platforms, and services.

North America holds the largest share among the regional markets; it, however, is forecasted to be superseded by Europe as the leading market shareholder in 2018, because of rapid growth seen by major European markets such as the United Kingdom and Germany. Europe is predicted to be the fastest growing region, with growth chiefly driven by mounting government support for R&D activities in the region. The bioinformatics services market in Europe and North America is well established and organized, while it is still in an early growth phase in emerging markets of Asia Pacific region.
