Personal Genome Testing Market

Personal Genome Testing Market: Global Industry Analysis 2012 – 2016 and Opportunity Assessment; 2017 – 2027

Market Overview

The personal genome is the study of sequencing and analysis of the genome of an individual. Human genome identifies and differentiates the unique set of variations in the DNA sequence, which is useful to access the genes involved in a disease. Personal genome testing has multiple clinical applications such as in cancer therapeutics and the diagnosis of childhood disorders. This application has been in practice, and the manufacturing companies are focusing on developing machines which are portable and small in size.

The personal genome testing market operates direct-to-customer as the products are directly available to the customer online. A genome testing kit comes in a small size with a tube, removable cap, and sealable split funnel. The market highly depends on the analytical and clinical validity and is covered under the regulatory framework.

Personal Genome Testing Market: Dynamics

Personal genome testing market has come into highlight due to the ability of the testing in predicting chronic diseases, and low-cost health risk assessment. Personal genome testing market is growing at a rapid pace however due to criticism from the healthcare professionals regarding the lack of evidence, a utility of the product directly by consumers, and utilization of ethical data the market is highly affected. Since personal genome testing is accurate and reliable technology, it is highly utilized by consumers.

Personal Genome Testing Market: Region-wise Outlook

Based on geography, the personal genome testing market can be segmented into five major regions: North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa. At present, North America holds a leading position in the personal genome testing market followed by Europe. The major driving factors which have driven the growth of the personal genome testing market in these regions are constantly increasing the prevalence of genetic diseases, and rising demand for technologically advanced medical equipment for treatment. Following North America, European countries are also anticipated to show steady growth in the personal genome testing market. In the next few years, Asia-Pacific would show remarkable growth in the personal genome testing market as it is developing at a very rapid pace and has shown the emergence of many regional players. The factors which would fuel the growth of personal genome testing market in Asia-Pacific are increasing awareness regarding various genetic disorders, increase in the number of patients getting affected with genetic disorders, and rapid development of the healthcare infrastructure across the Asian countries. Personal genome testing market would evolve at a rapid rate across the regions, however, North America would maintain its position in the overall personal genome testing market.
