Genetic Testing Market is estimated to grow at CAGR above 11.3% over the forecast time frame 2020-2027 and reach the market value around USD 17.95 billion by 2027.

Genetic testing is the study of the cells and tissues contained in the gene. In the field of biology and medicine, this study is further implemented to get a better understanding of genetic disorders like cancer, cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anemia, Down syndrome, and others. The report's scope explores the use of gene testing for personalized medicine growth, targeted cancer therapy, and other genetic illnesses.

Novel genetic testing technologies, together with increasing efficiency and accuracy are providing lucrative growth opportunities for the genetic testing market. Furthermore, across the emerging economies, the market is expected to witness exponential growth rates owing to the growing patient ratio and awareness. One of the major trends moving across the genetic testing industry includes the shifting focus on clinical science to bioinformatics.

In the near future, the global genetic testing market is anticipated to record significant development owing to an increase in the incidence of genetic disorders & cancer and an increase in awareness and acceptance of personalized drugs. Additionally, advances in genetic testing methods and the growing application of genetic testing in oncology are anticipated to grow significantly over the coming years.

The global genetic testing market is expected to register substantial growth in the future, owing to rise in incidences of genetic disorders and cancer and rise in awareness & acceptance of personalized medicines. For instance, genetic testing has been widely used in pharmacogenomics, also referred as drug-gene testing. In addition, advancements in genetic testing techniques are expected to boost the genetic testing market growth during the forecast period. However, standardization concerns of genetic testing-based diagnostics and stringent regulatory requirements for product approvals are anticipated to hamper the genetic testing market growth during the forecast period. Conversely, untapped emerging markets in developing countries are expected to provide remunerative opportunities for the market players. For instance, Healthcare systems in developing countries such as Brazil, India, and China have experienced significant increase in investments in healthcare and infrastructure, which leads to surge in demand for genetic testing in the region.

Segment Review

By type, the market is segmented into predictive testing & presymptomatic testing, carrier testing, prenatal & newborn testing, diagnostic testing, pharmacogenomic testing, and others. The prenatal & newborn testing segment held dominant position with highest revenue in 2019, and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. This is attributable to growth in awareness among people regarding healthcare and increase in incidences of mortality rate from genetic diseases across the world. On the other hand, the pharmacogenomic testing segment is anticipated to witness highest CAGR during the forecast period. This is largely anticipated to increase in application in use of personalized medicine across the globe.

By technology, the molecular testing segment acquired the major genetic testing market share in the year 2019, and is expected to maintain a lead during the forecast period. The growth of this segment is attributed to the fact that molecular testing is the most used technology for genetic testing. For instance, the technology is used in genetic tests such as carrier testing, diagnostic testing, predictive & presymptomatic testing and others. Furthermore, molecular testing is also preferred as it can be used to analyze gains or losses in DNA that are not detectable with routine chromosome analysis.

Region wise, North America was the leading revenue contributor to the global genetic testing market in 2019, and is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period. This is attributed to presence of majority of key players in the region. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to increase in affordability, surge in healthcare expenditure, and rise in awareness toward early screening of genetic disorders.

Covid-19 impact:

  • Due to prolonged lockdown across various countries, genetic counselors are unable to see their patients in person. Moreover, there is lack of skilled professionals and laboratories to run the tests.
  • Government bodies such as Centers for Medicaid Services (CMS) do not consider genetic counselors as healthcare providers, and are not exempting them from practicing during the lockdown.
  • Clinics and healthcare providers are using telehealth to conduct genetic counseling.
