Increase in Environmental Toxicology

Metagenomics plays an important role in bioremediation as microorganisms are the main agents of bioremediation. Microorganisms are responsible for degradation of environmental pollutants. The metagenome of a contaminated environment includes all the DNA involved in that environment. Genetic information is used to understand how contaminants and treatments are affecting the complex microbial communities that exist in the environment.

Apart from environmental toxicology, development of new research laboratories is playing an important role in the growth of the metagenomics market. With technological advancements, many new bioinformatics tools have been introduced in the market, which is expected to contribute to the growth of the metagenomics market. Besides, advanced technological platforms and improved genomic tools are the key factors expected to drive the growth of the global metagenomics market.

Development of New Products and New Techniques

The companies are focusing on to develop new types of sequencing products that aim at increasing the product portfolio and revenue of the metagenomics market. New sequencing techniques have been introduced which are expected to increase the revenue of metagenomics market.

Request Information on the Metagenomics Market Competitive Landscape


Metagenomics is a new high throughput screening tool for the microbial community. It basically refers to the study of genetic material recovered from the microbial community present in the environmental sample.

The primary aim of conducting a metagenomics experiment is the analysis of genes and the study of metabolic pathways. Metagenomics is used to explore new pharmaceutical and industrial products from the environment. It deals with the study of composition and taxonomy of microbial culture. The metagenomics market deals with three kind of products – library preparation kits, sample extraction kits and metagenomic sequencing kits. The total genome is isolated from the environment, fragmented and then sequenced.
