Global DNA testing market is anticipated to reach USD 10.04 billion by 2022, according to a new study by Grand View Research Inc. Rise in developments in the field of genome sequencing and personalized DNA level diagnostic applications, a considerable growth in the number of patented research initiatives by the government and government funded projects are factors expected to drive demand during the forecast period.
Introduction of novel technologies for genome profiling are expected to boost progress of this industry over the forecast period. Furthermore, increasing incidences of chronic oncology and infectious diseases that depend on DNA prototyping for treatment and diagnosis using personalized medicine are anticipated to significantly raise demand for DNA diagnostics/testing based research thereby propelling industrial growth in the coming years. Increasing demand for prenatal testing and in-vitro fertilization that subsequently leads to rise in demand for DNA diagnostics/testing is also attributive towards expected progress in this market.
