Genetic Testing Market Trends



  • Advancements in genetic testing  techniques to boost market growth


The development of next-generation sequencing and chromosomal microarray analysis, which transform the identification of chromosomal structural and numerical abnormalities and, in turn, help identify a variety of rare genomic and genetic disorders, are examples of technological advancements in genetic testing. In addition, Roche introduced FoundationOne Liquid, a blood-based genetic profiling test, in September 2019. The 70 most often altered genes in solid tumors and microsatellite instability can be found using this assay. Additionally, Myriad Genetics, Inc. declared in May 2020 that the FDA had authorized BRACAnalysis CDx for use as a companion diagnostic test by medical professionals to find people with metastatic pancreatic cancer who have a germline BRCA mutation and are candidates for treatment with PARP (poly ADP ribose polymerase) inhibitor. The development of significant leading players' genetic testing products is anticipated to act as a driving force for the cytogenetic market throughout the forecast period.


Technology advancements have also improved test accuracy and allowed doctors to examine various genetic data sets simultaneously. By approving new ways for the market, many nations are facilitating their adoption. For example, the United States Food and Drug Administration approved the first test to identify Fragile X Syndrome (FXS), one of the primary causes of inherited developmental delay and intellectual disability, in February 2021.


Thus, the market for genetic testing is anticipated to experience significant growth over the forecast period due to the rising burden of chronic diseases, technological improvements, and the trend toward customized therapy. Therefore, such conditions have enhanced the Genetic Testing market CAGR globally in recent years.


However, positive government programs to encourage genetic testing are another factor driving the market revenue of the Genetic Testing.


Genetic Testing Market Segment Insights


Genetic Testing Method Insights


The genetic testing market segmentation, based on Method, includes molecular genetic tests/ DNA tests, chromosomal and biochemical tests, and others. The molecular genetic tests/ DNA tests segment held the majority share in 2021, contributing to around ~45% of the market revenue of genetic testing. The widespread use of this method in genetic tests is responsible for the segment's supremacy. Additionally, the segmental expansion will be fueled by the technological superiority of this technique, such as quicker turnaround times and the recent trend of falling next-generation sequencing (NGS) costs.


Genetic Testing Type Insights


The genetic testing market data has been bifurcated by Type into prescribed genetic testing and direct-to-consumer genetic testing. The prescribed genetic testing segment dominated the market in 2021 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2022-2032. By providing details on a person's chromosomes and genetic variations, predictive and presymptomatic testing has become popular for identifying potential hazards in the future. Comparatively speaking, the predictive genetic test is a revolutionary approach quickly growing as a genetic test in medical settings, particularly in developed countries. It is increasingly used to direct several illnesses' training methods and dietary plans.

Direct-to-consumer genetic testing was the fastest-growing segment. In nations including the US, China, and Japan, direct-to-consumer genetic testing kits are gaining popularity. The market for DTC-GT (Direct-to-Consumer Genetic Testing) kits is anticipated to expand rapidly over the forecast period due to rising technological adoption, awareness campaigns, and cost reductions.


Genetic Testing Application Insights


Based on Application, the global genetic testing industry has been segmented into reproductive health, cancer screening ancestry, predictive and presymptomatic testing, and others. Cancer Screening Ancestry held the largest segment share in 2021; by 2032. Genetic testing aids in determining a person's lifetime risk of contracting cancer. It achieves this by checking for specific alterations in a person's genes, chromosomes, or proteins. We refer to these alterations as mutations.


The fastest-growing segment in the genetic testing industry is Pred reproductive health. New diagnostic procedures, therapies, or interventions to delay the onset of disease or lessen its severity have been made possible by advances in our understanding of the mechanisms underlying genetic disease.
