Speak to Analyst:

 In Latin America, bioinformatics is now widely recognized as a crucial field for research and development in agricultural, veterinary, and human health sciences. The Latin American bioinformatics market displays a lucrative growth potential. It is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 22% from 2012 to 2017 to reach $627 million by 2017. The growth of the bioinformatics market is driven by factors such as the decreasing cost of DNA sequencing, the increasing number of training and development programs on the usage of bioinformatics tools/platforms, the high concentration of bioinformatics research institutes, ongoing partnerships of academic institutions, and the formation of regional bioinformatics networks. However, the dearth of adequate infrastructural facilities and skilled professionals, presence of obsolete bioinformatics solutions, lack of government funding and investments, and less focus of global bioinformatics players on Latin American countries are factors that are restraining the growth of the market.
