Germany Molecular Diagnostics Market, By Application, 2013 - 2024 (USD Million)

Recent technological advancements in the field of molecular diagnostics has revolutionized the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Gene expression profiling involving evaluating activities of thousands of genes at once to envisage overall picture of cellular function is gaining wide acceptance. Introduction of next generation sequencing has made sequence based analysis a popular alternative to conventional methods.  Other technologies influencing molecular diagnostics market growth are nucleic acid amplification(NAT), a biochemical technique to detect bacterium or virus and microRNA based diagnosis.

Increasing research and development activities focused at developing advanced tools and techniques intended to enable rapid as well as accurate diagnosis of disease will propel molecular diagnostics market growth. As the demand for early diagnosis of these diseases is skyrocketing, various public and private organizations are pouring funds to accelerate research and development in the field of molecular diagnostics.

The prevalence of infectious disease is increasing rapidly in developing countries. Around 80,000 new incidences of HIV infections found in India in 2016. Recent outbreaks of Ebola virus in west Africa and zika virus in Brazil resulted in several deaths. Such emergence of new infectious disease as well as increasing prevalence will fuel the demand for molecular diagnostics techniques. Moreover, increasing geriatric population will further influence the industry growth as the vulnerability to such infections significantly increases with the increasing age.

However, unclear regulatory landscape due to the existence of different paths of approval has created barriers to enter in the market. Moreover, cost concerns due to expensiveness of molecular tests will further impede molecular diagnostics market growth over forecast timeframe.
