PCR and NGS Based Diagnostic Testing Market size worth over $26.5bn by 2027

  • Published Date: May 24, 2021

PCR and NGS Based Diagnostic Testing Market size is set to surpass USD 26.5 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Technological advancement in diagnostic techniques and increased awareness among people has resulted in rise in the number of patients getting diagnosed with infectious diseases. Also, outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic is responsible for massive surge in the number of PCR & NGS based diagnostic testing for detection of virus. For instance, by end of April 2021, more than 476 million tests were done in North America to detect COVID infection. Similarly the number of test done in Europe and Asia-Pacific by April 2021 was more than 747 million and 590 million respectively. Increase in tests creates huge demand for consumable products. Moreover, establishment of new labs generates demand for diagnostic equipment and other consumables, thus driving the market growth.

Increasing research and development activity in developed countries will accelerate the PCR and NGS based diagnostic testing market expansion

In developed economies including North America and Europe, government highly emphasizes on research frameworks. Government has introduced numerous policies and initiated several acts for stimulating researchers and scientists to find novel solutions for disease treatment. Rising investments in R&D activities and rising number of studies pertaining to genetic makeup of an individual will create huge demand for NGS and other diagnostic techniques during the forecast period.

National Institutes of Health initiated the Human Microbiome Project (HMP), to study the effect of changes in microbiota on human body and associated diseases with the help of NGS technique. Furthermore, benefits offered by technologically advanced NGS techniques such as better molecular diagnosis that aids in finding clearer classification of genes causing diseases, will increase its adoption rate during the forecast timeframe. Therefore, focus of scientists and researchers on development of novel and effective medicines to treat chronic diseases such as cancer and other genetic disorders will propel the overall industry growth.

Growing demand for advanced diagnostic equipment will create significant growth opportunities
