The global bioinformatics market is projected to reach USD 21.8 billion by 2026 from USD 10.7 billion in 2021, at a CAGR of 15.2% during the forecast period. Bioinformatics is the application of computer technology for the management and analysis of biological data. It includes storage, analysis, and dissemination of biological data. Bioinformatics uses computer programs for a variety of applications, including determining gene & protein functions, establishing evolutionary relationships, and predicting the three-dimensional shapes of proteins. However, high costs of bioinformatics software and services and a dearth of skilled professionals are likely to challenge market growth in the coming years.

Medical biotechnology to hold the largest segment of the market
Based on the sector, the market is segmented into medical biotechnology, animal biotechnology, plant biotechnology, environmental biotechnology, forensic biotechnology, another sector. The medical biotechnology segment accounted for the largest share of 50.3% of the bioinformatics market in 2020.The development of new databases for drug discovery, the use of bioinformatics for clinical diagnostics, and the increased funding for the development of bioinformatics solutions for clinical diagnostics are primarily driving the use of bioinformatics in clinical diagnostics and contributing to the growth of the medical biotechnology segment in the market.

Genomics segment to hold the largest share of the component market
Based on application, the bioinformatics market is segmented into genomics, chemoinformatics& drug design, proteomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics, and other applications. The genomics segment accounted for the largest market share of 36.9% in 2020. The increasing use of pharmacogenomic research for the development of precision medicine, the growing favorable funding scenario for genomic research, and the increasing partnerships and collaborations between various life sciences and informatics companies for the development of advanced bioinformatics tools and software are the major factors contributing to the growth of the bioinformatics market for genomics.
