KEY MARKET INSIGHTS ¬†
The Global Agrigenomics Market is projected to grow from USD 3.3 billion in 2021 to USD 6.1 billion by 2030 at a CAGR of 9.7% during the forecast period. The study of the genetic makeup of crops and livestock, as well as how genes influence production, is known as agrigenomics. Agriculture can benefit from genomics by increasing the sustainability and productivity of livestock and crop production.
The agrigenomics market is growing due to significant technological advancements that have led to a switch from single-gene sequencing to whole-genome sequencing, as well as an increase in research on genome composition and gene function. The increased use of genome sequencing in livestock not only allows for the study of parent ancestry but also aids in the understanding of infectious organisms like bacteria and viruses that infest or reside on them. The high resolution of next-generation sequencing allows researchers to track the mutations in infectious agents through time, which aids in the understanding of disease transmission patterns and the creation of effective treatments. Furthermore, these investigations allow researchers to better control disease outbreaks in animals, resulting in increased output. These considerations are important market drivers for agrigenomics.
COVID-19 has created significant medical, societal, and economic issues. The agricultural and food processing industries are concentrating their efforts on restoring efficient food production, logistics, and supply chain efficiency, and creating buffer systems to absorb future supply-demand shocks, while the medical community is concentrating on developing effective diagnostic and medical treatment. In addition, trait developers, seed businesses, and genomics researchers and suppliers are attempting to discover capacity-building solutions in the aftermath of the COVID-19 epidemic. Agricultural genomics is progressing toward using gene-editing techniques to generate a variety of antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral treatments.
Rising Opportunities for DNA Sequencing In Crops and Livestock
Crop genomics research has made a substantial contribution to the successful application of modern molecular biology methodologies to improve species genetics. Because of advances in sequencing technology, the genomes of major crops such as rice, corn, wheat, soybean, rape, vegetables, cotton, and other crops have been sequenced. On this foundation, the cloning and control of genes for critical agronomic features have now been achieved.
Tools and Techniques for Advanced Genome Analysis
Rapid innovations in the functional genomics sector, such as the development of approaches and the adoption of massively parallel sequencing technology to efficiently evaluate cellular behavior at the molecular level, are driving the worldwide agrigenomics market. Molecular marker-assisted crop breeding beats traditional breeding methods in terms of crop selection speed, scope, and efficiency. Crops can have improved yield and quality while using fertilizers, fewer pesticides, and water, according to advanced genome characterization methods. This factor is anticipated to propel the global agrigenomics market during the forecast period.¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†
Lack of Infrastructure Support Restraints Market Growth
Due to funding constraints, the adoption of automated approaches in agrigenomics research has been somewhat limited in comparison to other domains such as human genetics. As a result, while being aware of the benefits of automated systems, researchers in underdeveloped nations continue to prefer manual methods. Similarly, university research laboratories in developing countries find it difficult to invest in such systems. As a result, only rich countries can afford these high-cost automated systems, limiting the market for agrigenomics research automation to continue to grow.
