Market Overview

The global metabolomics market was valued at USD 1674 million in 2019 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.5% during the forecast period.

Metabolomics is a branch of omics sciences that deals with the study of biochemical processes, which involves the study of intermediates and byproducts of metabolic activities. These products from the metabolic pathways are called metabolomes, which includes the cluster of all metabolites involved in various body functions such as metabolic intermediates, signaling molecules, secondary metabolites, and hormones.

Scientifically, a metabolomic study involves various analytical techniques (spectroscopy, chromatography, and bioinformatics) and statistical tools (multivariate analysis for the determination and study of metabolites). The study of these metabolites can help in a wide range of applications, such as substantial equivalence testing, phenotyping of genetically modified plants, identification of gene function, and study of biotic-abiotic stress reaction.

Market Dynamics

The Potential of Metabolomic Techniques in Therapeutics to Boost the Market Growth

Over the last decade, metabolomics has gained great traction due to its capabilities in disease biology research. Many studies have revealed, the optimum level of specific metabolites can associate with the onset/progression of diseases. The metabolomic studies can be used to understand the response to treatment for such metabolite-related diseases.

With the rapidly-rising prevalence and associated fatality-chronic lifestyle diseases, such as cancer and CVDs, researchers take increased efforts to develop novel therapeutic approaches using metabolomic tools. Further, it is facilitating researchers and scientists to estimate physiological effects and monitor the adverse drug reactions. Thus, many pharmaceutical and biotech companies, research institutes have a huge capital for metabolomic researches.

As reported by The Metabolomics Innovation Centre (TMIC), metabolomics research has experienced tremendous growth during the past decade. Thus, this extensive usage has fueled the market to achieve steady growth during the forecast period.

Rising Awareness and Funding from Government and Private Authorities Fuel the Market Growth

The metabolomics market has wide-scale applications in numerous domains.
