Dublin, May 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Genetic Testing Market by Offering, Test Type, Method, End User - Global Forecast to 2030" report has been added to's offering.

The genetic testing market is projected to reach $28.24 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 10.4% from 2023 to 2030.

The report carries out the key industry drivers, restraints, challenges, and opportunities. The growth of this market is mainly driven by government initiatives promoting genetic testing, the increasing prevalence of genetic disorders, the growing need for the early detection & prevention of diseases, the increasing applications of genetic testing in oncology, and the decreasing costs of sequencing procedures.

However, the high cost of genetic testing in low-income countries and its social and ethical implications restrain the growth of the genetic testing market. The growing potential of direct-to-consumer genetic testing and the emerging field of genetic counseling are expected to create growth opportunities for the players operating in this market. However, the low chances of positive, actionable mutations and concerns regarding the security & privacy of genetic data are major challenges to market growth.

Based on offering, in 2023, the consumables & reagents segment is expected to account for the largest share of the market. The key factors contributing to the largest market share of the segment are rising demand for genetic testing, recurring demand for consumables and reagents, and use of consumables & reagents by multiple end users such as hospitals, research laboratories, and diagnostic & testing laboratories. The surge in genetic tests at hospitals and diagnostics labs is one of the key factors for the growing demand for consumables and reagents.

Based on test type, in 2023, the prenatal testing segment is expected to account for the largest share of the market. The key factors contributing to the large market share of this segment are the ability of prenatal tests to detect the genetic risks associated with an infant's health. Also, some invasive prenatal tests are conducted when there is a risk of developing genetic abnormalities in infants, such as a neural tube defect or chromosomal abnormality. These factors are expected to fuel the adoption of prenatal genetic tests.

Based on method, the market is segmented into molecular tests, biochemical tests, and chromosomal tests. In 2023, the molecular tests segment is expected to account for the largest share of the market. Several advantages offered by molecular tests such as high accuracy, fewer false positive results, and short test period, support the large market share of this segment. Additionally, increased government funding for the development of advanced molecular testing, increased research activities, and a rise in test frequencies for genetic disorders are leading to the growing demand for molecular testing.

Based on end user, the hospitals & clinics segment is likely to register the highest CAGR over the forecast period. Growing demand for advanced technology in the genetic screening of hereditary cancers, well-established infrastructure, the increasing use of advanced techniques, and the growing prevalence of chronic diseases are some of the major factors leading to the rapid growth of the hospital & clinics segment.

An in-depth analysis of the geographical scenario of the genetic testing market provides detailed qualitative and quantitative insights into five major geographies (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa) along with the coverage of major countries in each region.

In 2023, North America is expected to command the largest share of the genetic testing market, followed by Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. Key factors such as high spending power, the growing importance of early disease diagnosis, government initiatives to increase test frequencies, growing funding for research activities, and high R&D expenditure are responsible for the region's high share of the genetic testing market.
