Global Industry Analysts, Inc. (GIA) launches comprehensive analysis of industry segments, market trends, growth drivers, market share, size and demand forecasts on the global Genetic Testing market. Market segmentation includes Type (Prenatal & Newborn, Diagnostic, Predictive & Presymptomatic, Carrier, Pharmacogenomic, and Other Types).
The concept of genetic testing gained further from technological advances like microarrays and whole exome sequencing that offered data in a cost-efficient and quick manner. While microarrays probe for desirable sets of certain DNA variations, whole exome sequencing focuses on protein encoding part of the genome. In addition, progress in bioinformatics and computing enabled researchers to capture more genomic data. Each individual genome contains millions of genetic variations, and researchers are required to find their association with specific diseases. Advanced bioinformatics and computing techniques allow researchers to map desirable variations and genes to diseases. These advancements are enabling researchers to leverage genetic testing and associated data for various applications. The increasing popularity of direct-to-consumer genetic tests and ongoing efforts to capture and use genetic data for R&D and clinical settings is expected to provide large volumes of genetic data, which holds potential to transform healthcare and medicine domains in the coming years by supporting drug development and personalized medicine.
Multi-gene tests are anticipated to experience notable acceptance for hereditary and prenatal cancer risk testing in the coming years to provide a major boost to the market. While a large number of drugs note specific genetic markers in labels for guiding treatments, nearly 42% of medications in the pipeline are associated with genetic markers. The growth is also favored by aggressive attempts made by testing players to target new markets, government-funded R&D projects and implementation of massive testing by healthcare organizations for patient populations. Leading players such as Color Genomics offer genetic testing option as health benefits to family members and people working with large organizations. With all efforts to safeguard data, these tests allow people to identify their risk of developing specific genetic diseases for preventative measures. Companies also offer health-related genetic tests to serve large population. In addition, the US government is working on an ambitious 'All of Us Research Program' that targets enrolment of one million citizens for a study relying on genome sequencing. The program focuses on delivery of health test results to patients through genetic counselors. These endeavors are anticipated to provide a large number of individuals with an access to their health information. On the other hand, these approaches present a major challenge regarding integration of the data into traditional healthcare. However, regulation of these genetic tests remains unclear and loose. While the FDA holds authority over genetic tests, it mainly uses its enforcement discretion. However, the government has started making efforts to regulate LDTs and come up with the VALID Act.
