Key Market Trends

Diagnostic Testing is Expected to Hold its Highest Revenue Share in the Testing Type Segment

  • By type, diagnostic testing is believed to have the largest market size. The is due to the detection of diseases and treatment at an early stage to minimize the severity of diseases, leading to a reduced mortality rate. Treatment at an early stage requires diagnostic testing and this is expected to increase the market demand over the forecast period.
  • In recent years, China has been concentratring increasingly on genetic science, with several trials underway. The country is also quietly at work, building the world’s biggest DNA database. Thus, China is rapidly increasing the appetite for DNA-reading technology, which is helping companies that can help unravel the genetic code grow.
  • DNA labs in India are ranked as India’s number one Genetic DNA Testing Laboratories. There are 3,000 sample collection centers and tie-ups with 500 hospitals across India. This network performs more than 5,000 tests per day. Hence, all the aforementioned factors are contributing to the growth of the market.
