The global genetic disease diagnostic market is anticipated to witness growth over the forecast period, driven by rising incidences of genetic disorders that give rise to wide variety of independent diagnostic procedures. Additionally, increasing awareness about prenatal diagnosis, rising attempt to improve patients quality of life and growing popularity of certain techniques such as gene therapy, medical genetics are further expected to boost market growth. Moreover, growing prevalence of genetic disorders such as color blindness, Down’s syndrome, cystic fibrosis, etc. and frequent incidences of disorder of synthesis of DNA, RNA & Protein are factors that are also propelling the genetic disorder diagnosis market growth. Expensive diagnosis and inadequate reimbursement procedures are amongst few factors hindering market growth. However, advantages associated with genetic disease diagnostics are expected to curb the impact of aforementioned factors.
The global genetic disease diagnostic market, by application is classified into inherited disorder testing, pharmacogenetic testing (PGx), human leukocyte antigen (HLA) testing, oncology testing, and others. Inherited disorder testing segment is further categories into Bbloom syndrome, Gaucher’s disease, Tay-Sachs disease, fragile x-syndrome and others. In 2014, oncology testing was one of the highest revenue generating application area. Key factors associated to its large share include growing pervasiveness of various kinds of cancer such as carcinoma & sarcoma, increasing tobacco and alcohol consumption among youth and detrimental lifestyle among significantly large young population such as improper diet, lack of exercise and increasing consumption of red meat etc. Furthermore, rising patient awareness pertaining to genetic disorders and its diagnostic techniques and rapid technological developments in its diagnostic techniques such as SBRT, robotic radio surgery and usage of molecular target agent are few factors that are further expected to boost oncology and consequently genetic disease diagnostics market over the forecast period. However, pharmacogenetic testing segment is expected to witness lucrative growth over the estimated period of seven years. Factors such as growing awareness regarding diagnosis and growing interest of healthcare professionals towards the genetic differences in the drug metabolic pathways are few factors attributing to the rapid growth of pharmacogenetic testing market over the forecast period.
Geographically, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, MEA and Latin America regions are included in the study. In 2014, North America accounted for the majority of global genetic disease diagnostic market which is closely followed by Europe. Key factors attributing to its large share include the presence of developed healthcare infrastructure in the region, availability of skilled professionals & sophisticated genetic testing equipment, high healthcare expenditure and better reimbursement policies. However, Asia Pacific regional segment is expected to show a substantial growth rate over the forecast period. Constant development of medical tourism industry, rising healthcare expenditure, growing government initiatives pertaining to the development of healthcare infrastructure mainly biotechnology, agriculture and pharmacology are few factors which are contributing towards the rapid growth of Asia Pacific genetic disease diagnosis market.
Major players in the genetic disease diagnostic market include Abbott Inc., Celera Group, Elitech Group, PerkinElmer Inc., Quest Diagnostics, AutoGenomics, Roche Diagnostics Corp., BioRad Laboratories, Transgenomic Inc. and Applied Biosystems Inc.

The most common concern for the governments of all Covid-19 hit nations is the excruciating need to screen for and test large numbers of patients for possible Sars-Cov-2 infection. As a result, most of them are facing major shortages in the supply for diagnostic kits to test for the virus. Diagnostics virology entities are under immense pressure to provide reliable testing kits, and there is a surge in demand for in-vitro or point-of-care testing capacities by labs across a large number of countries. The report will account for Covid19 as a key market contributor.
