Market Overview

The global human microbiome market is expected to show a CAGR of 22.60% during the forecast period. The key factors propelling the growth of this market are increasing incidence of lifestyle-related diseases and growing geriatric population.

The rising incidence of lifestyle-related diseases, globally, is a strong driver of the human microbiome market, as therapeutics may provide an alternative route to tackle significant healthcare challenges, such as obesity. The increasing occurrence of autoimmune disorders and antibiotic resistance are also important areas, which are in great need of fresh treatment approaches, and for which, microbiome therapies may have a significant impact over the next few years. With advancements in precision medicine, personalized nutrition is also playing a crucial role. Microbiome technologies strive for novel developments in the area. Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) continue to be the major cause of mortality, representing about 30% of all deaths, worldwide. Lifestyle-related diseases, like hypertension, diabetes mellitus, dyslipidaemia, and overweight/obesity, are the major risk factors for the development of CVD. With rapid economic development and increasing westernization of lifestyles in the past few decades, the prevalence of these diseases has reached alarming proportions in the recent years, which is expected to boost the growth of the human microbiome market.
