Report Overview

The global nucleic acid amplification testing market size was valued at USD 1.78 billion in 2015. Growing demand for advanced diagnostic measures and increasing investments for the development of new biotechnological diagnostic techniques are the key factors propelling the growth of the market. In addition, the growing prevalence of infectious diseases associated with vectors like bacteria & viruses is also fueling the overall growth.

India Nucleic Acid Amplification Testing Market, By Application, 2014 - 2025 (USD Million)

India Nucleic Acid Amplification Test Market size

The global prevalence of communicable diseases remains high despite the presence of various diagnostic and therapeutic techniques in the market. The successful management of an infectious disease is highly dependent on accurate identification of the infecting agent. Nucleic acid amplification provides the most precise detection technique for most of the infectious agents. Thus, it is preferred over traditional diagnostic techniques. In addition, favorable initiatives undertaken by the governments worldwide to introduce these tests in various screening programs are expected to impact the sector positively, especially during the former half of the forecast period.

Along with infectious diseases, NAAT is being extensively studied for applications in other fields like cancer, personalized medicine, and forensics. This is expected to spur the demand for NAAT during the forecast period.

Application Insights

Infectious diseases captured the largest share in 2015 owing to the high usage of NAAT for the detection of disease-causing bacteria and viral agents. The growing emphasis on the management of epidemics, including the most recent one of the Zika virus, is expected to maintain the largest share of the segment throughout the forecast period.

The constantly rising burden of mortality of cancer across the world is catching the attention of healthcare agencies. Thus, high demand for effective early diagnostic methods for various cancer types is anticipated to drive the growth of the segment with a significant CAGR during the forecast period.

Technique Insights

The target amplification system includes PCR technology, which is widely used because of its operational simplicity and high efficiency. Thus, the segment is expected to dominate the nucleic acid amplification testing market throughout the forecast period with the highest CAGR.

Many of the companies had limited access to the PCR techniques until 2006. Because of the limited access, alternative techniques like signal and probe amplification systems were developed. These techniques have applications in selective cases. These techniques are used in place of PCR to minimize the time and money required for diagnosis in cases such as branched DNA probes and anti-DNA-RNA hybrid antibodies.
