UAE Bioinformatics Market Executive Summary

UAE Bioinformatics market is projected to grow from $76.75 Mn in 2022 to $275.08 Mn by 2030, registering a CAGR of 1.30% during the forecast period of 2022-30. In 2019, national healthcare spending in the UAE as a percentage of GDP reached 4.28% from 4.15% in 2018. The UAE government has made it a top priority to build a top-notch healthcare infrastructure, and as a result, the industry has developed and grown tremendously over the past few years.

The study of biology and information technology are combined in the discipline of bioinformatics. Data generation, data warehousing, data mining, data management, and other techniques are used in bioinformatics. Bioinformatics software and tools are used as integrated solutions to provide statistical techniques and data processing algorithms for applications including next-generation sequencing, modeling of genomic and proteomic structure, and three-dimensional drug discovery. The bioinformatics market in the Middle-Eastern region is still in its nascent stages. However, UAE is one of the leading countries in the Middle-Eastern bioinformatics market.

Market Dynamics

Market Growth Drivers

The UAE government has been making investments in the creation of bioinformatics resources and infrastructure, such as the Dubai Genome Center and the Abu Dhabi Advanced Research Center (ADARC), a molecular diagnostics company. This government support, advances in technology and an increasing demand for personalized medicine are expected to drive the bioinformatics market in UAE.

Market Restraints

The factors that are limiting the growth of the market are limited awareness about the potential benefits of bioinformatics and the shortage of skilled workforce in this field which makes it challenging for companies to adapt or implement new applications or technologies.

Competitive Landscape

Key Players

  • G42 Healthcare (ARE)
  • Neo-Science (ARE)
  • Agilent Technologies
  • IBM Life Sciences

Notable Recent Deals

November 2022: The MOU between G42 Healthcare and Asa Ren aims to create and improve genomic sequencing, bioinformatics capabilities, and digital health solutions to support the Indonesian Government's National Genomics Initiatives and the digitization of the healthcare sector.

January 2023: The acquisition of Verogen by QIAGEN with $150 Mn was made to strengthen the company's position as a leader in the field of human identification and forensics, which is backed by process automation, genetic testing analysis, and sample preparation. Verogen and Illumina MiSeq FGx, NGS-based panels, and GEDmatch bioinformatics solutions would be supplied beginning in 2021, according to the deal.

Healthcare Policies and Regulatory Landscape

In the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the regulatory environment for the bioinformatics industry is still comparatively new and developing. Controlling and authorizing medical devices is within the purview of the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MOHAP). In the emirate of Dubai, the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) is responsible for overseeing the regulation of healthcare technology, including bioinformatics. Additionally, the UAE offers a variety of free trade zones that provide enterprises with laxer restrictions and incentives, including Dubai Silicon Oasis and Abu Dhabi Global Market. Furthermore, the UAE has put in place laws governing data security and privacy, including the Federal Law No. 2 of 2019 on Data Protection and the Cybercrime Law, which can be applicable to bioinformatics businesses that deal with genetically personal data.

Reimbursement Scenario

In UAE, reimbursement policies are set by individual insurance firms as well as government-funded healthcare providers. The cost of some genetic testing and other bioinformatics services is typically covered by these policies, but the precise tests and services that are covered, as well as the amount of the reimbursement, can change. The Ministry of Health and Prevention (MOHAP) in the UAE establishes the norm for medical operations, including the price of genetic tests. The MOHAP also controls medical procedure costs in the private sector; these costs require the Ministry of Health approval.
