Regional Analysis:

Geographically, the human microbiome market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. North America is anticipated to account for majority of the share in global human microbiome market. The dominance of the region is attributable to increasing prevalence of lifestyle disorders and advancements in next generation sequencing. For instance, Illumina Inc., a leading player in the U.S., states that the emergence of next-generation sequencing enables several high-profile collaborative projects such as the Human Microbiome Project and MetaHIT. These projects have published a wide range of data on the human microbiome using Next Generation Sequencing as a foundational tool.

Europe is expected to grow in market share during the forecast period attributed to comprehensive research and development of new applications of human microbiome. For instance, in March 2020, according to NCBI, new microbiome projects such as ONCOBIOME, MICROB-predict and GEMMA are focused on oncology, mapping of human microbiota and autism spectrum disorders respectively which are likely to fuel the market growth in this region.

Moreover, Asia Pacific is expected to grow during the forecast period owing to the increasing establishment of institutions working on microbiome and ancillary fields. For instance, in March 2020, the Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology (IGIB) which is a CSIR institute, is spearheading the Genomics for Public Health in India, also called IndiGen project. It is planning to enroll 20,000 Indians for whole genome sequencing in the next couple of years to build a larger database. The data will be important for building the knowhow, baseline data and indigenous capacity in the emerging area of precision medicine.

Furthermore, increasing prevalence of disorders affecting quality of life and growth in the healthcare sector may encourage market growth. The market in Latin America and the Middle East & Africa are at a budding stage currently due to slower adoption rates of upcoming advancements and generally follow trends of more relatively matured markets.
