Report Overview

The global cellular health screening market size was valued at USD 2.22 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.3% from 2021 to 2028. Cellular health screening facilitates easy and rapid understanding of one’s health at a cellular level. This technology helps in identifying areas that need immediate support and enables professionals to develop an individualized plan to achieve effective results. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, market players witnessed a decline in their sales and base testing volume. Moreover, the supply chain is disrupted due to governmental impositions and restrictions on transportation, export, and import of products, raw materials, etc. during the pandemic. This has led to a decrease in the demand; many of the organizations have diversified their product portfolios from cellular health testing line to COVID-19 molecular and antibody testing, which can equally offset the decrease in base testing volume.

Applications of home-based diagnostic tests are significantly increasing globally. Public awareness campaigns aimed at identifying the symptoms of chronic diseases and ways to prevent them play an important role in controlling the spread of the disease. Thus, increased patient awareness has led to high demand for cellular health screening kits and services. The use of these devices also eliminates the need to wait for deciphering test results as well as aids in optimization of timely treatment decision, improves the efficacy of care provided, and significantly reduces diagnosis cost, especially in resource-constrained settings where laboratory infrastructure is weak.

Several research studies are indicative of the correlation between cancers and telomere length. Telomere shortening as a tumor suppressor proves to be a major factor in aggravated forms of cancer. Although it has been established that the length of telomeres is influenced by a variety of factors, such as infections, inflammation, and stress, these factors, particularly inflammation, resulting in oxidative stress, leading to telomere erosion.

Research supports telomere maintenance to being a major element for effects of environmental, lifestyle, and genetic issues on aging and related diseases. Therefore, the rate of telomere change facilitates a vital understanding of biological aging and genetic diseases. Furthermore, a decline of telomere length has been linked to age-related pathological issues, including Cardiovascular Diseases (CVDs), cancer, and reduced immune function. Thus, with the rising incidence of chronic diseases, the demand for cellular health screening is likely to increase in the coming years.

The rising number of programs by various organizations aimed at increasing awareness about preventive healthcare-based testing products and services will also augment market growth. Furthermore, collaborations, such as those undertaken by the CDC, National Cervical Cancer Coalition, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF), WHO, and others, for cervical cancer screening are expected to boost the market growth during the forecast period. In addition, major market players are undertaking initiatives to increase awareness about cervical and vaginal cancer screening.

Cellular Health Screening Market Trends

Increasing number of awareness programs by organizations across the globe has led to a growing need for preventive healthcare-based testing solutions. Collaborative initiatives undertaken by institutions such as the WHO, CDC, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, and National Cervical Cancer Coalition, among others, for promotion of cervical cancer screening, is one of the major factors expected to drive the market growth in the near future.

Similarly, several countries and local governments have undertaken measures for promoting screening of the most diagnosed cancers in their respective regions. For instance, in the U.S., the Georgia Department of Public Health offers breast and cervical cancer screening services to uninsured women living in Georgia. Similarly, the Indian government has initiated the Ayushman Bharat and the Prime Minister’s National Relief Fund (PMNRF) for patients that require assistance during cancer treatment. Such initiatives can increase the adoption of cellular health screening services and boost the market.

Home-based diagnostic tests are gaining traction globally, due to increased patient awareness about cellular health screening kits and services. These devices aid in achieving timely treatment decisions by eliminating the long waiting time for arrival of test results. This also improves the efficacy of care provided, and can lead to cost reduction, especially in areas with limited availability of resources. Furthermore, increasing trend toward decentralization of testing has been crucial in increasing the adoption of such devices globally.

As most diseases are linked to some form of genetic basis, various diagnostic companies have used technological advancements to develop genetic tests directly for consumers. For instance, in September 2021, MedGenome Labs, introduced its direct-to-consumer category in India, with the launch of Kardiogen and Curegen personal genomics tests. Such kits are typically targeted toward individuals that are not necessarily at high disease risk or ill but are curious to understand their risk for various diseases and disorders.

Although there has been a significant rise in direct-to-consumer genetic testing, several issues with sample transportation are anticipated to negatively impact the market growth. Some of the major factor affecting the performance of these tests is the quantity and quality of DNA extracted. Some of the causes for failure of quality DNA extraction include blood clotting, owing to poor mixing with anticoagulants like EDTA, the use of serum tubes, and delays in sample transport. These factors may hamper the market growth in the near future.

There are several genetic testing kits that are commercially available in the market, although pricing variations for the same test by different manufacturers are a factor anticipated to hamper market growth. Genetic tests are usually priced between USD 100 and USD 2,000, based on the complexity of tests. Tests that determine the probability of chronic and life-threatening diseases such as cancer are typically covered by insurance; however, cellular health screening tests may often be an out-of-pocket expense for most consumers. Inconclusive tests may also prove to be a factor limiting the uptake of such tests.

Test Type Insights

The single test panels segment dominated the market in 2020 with a revenue share of 80.18%. The single test panels segment is further segmented into telomere, oxidative stress, inflammation, and heavy metal tests. The telomere sub-segment held the highest share in this market.
