Thermo Fisher Scientific (US) holds the leading position in the global bioinformatics services market. The strong geographic presence across major markets is supporting the growth of the company’s market share. The company primarily focuses on developing technologically advanced bioinformatics solutions to enhance its bioinformatics service offerings. The company also engages in inorganic growth strategies such as acquisitions. For example, it acquired Core Informatics (US), a bioinformatics company, in 2017. Such developments help the company maintain a strong position in bioinformatics services market. Thermo Fisher Scientific has a robust product portfolio of NGS platforms, consumables, reagents, and services. The company’s strong market position can largely be attributed to the fact that its leading platforms work on one of the best technologies—ion semiconductor technology. With its strong product portfolio, continuous research and development activities, and wide geographic reach, Thermo Fisher Scientific is expected to grow significantly in the global bioinformatics services market.

Eurofins Scientific held the second-largest share of the bioinformatics services market in 2020. It has maintained its position in the global bioinformatics services market due to its wide geographic presence and a broad range of bioinformatics services. The acquisition of GATC Biotech (Germany) further strengthened its service offerings and position in the market. In December 2020, the company launched SARS-CoV-2 NGS services for providing full-length viral genome sequences to support researchers globally for the development of vaccines and fighting against the pandemic. Owing to the company’s strong industry presence and brand recognition, Eurofins’ share in the bioinformatics market is expected to increase during the forecast period.
