Global Nucleic Acid Testing Market:

The global nucleic acid testing market valued at US$ 3,653.6 Mn in 2018 and estimated to grow at significant CAGR over the forecast years 2019-2025 due to increase in prevalence of certain types of cancers and infectious diseases across the globe. For instance, according to WHO 2018 data, approximately 9.6 Mn death occurred due to cancer around the globe. Moreover, rise in R&D for the development of advanced technologies for nucleic acid testing, increased in demand for early stage disease diagnosis and personalized medicine, raise in funding from public and private sectors for the healthcare infrastructure development, and surge in demand for nucleic acid testing from blood banks are anticipated to boost the market over the forecast timeframe. However, stringent regulatory guidelines, high cost and complexity in the testing, and lack of skilled professionals and sophisticated healthcare infrastructure in underdeveloped countries are hinder the growth of market in future years


Increase in the R&D for the Development of Newer Products

Increase in the R&D for the development of newer products is a major factor drive the global nucleic acid testing market over the forecast years. For instance, in June 2018, Grifols received FDA approval for two blood screening assays: Procleix Ultrio Elite and Procleix WNV. Procleix Ultrio Elite to detect HIV 1, Hepatitis C, Hepatitis B, and HIV 2 based on nucleic acid testing. Moreover, raise in funding for R&D also boost the market over the forecast timeframe. For instance, in 2016, The National Cancer Institute has reserved $3.9 Bn to fund the establishment of laboratories to advance research on assays for cancers of the breast, prostate, lung, and genitourinary organs.


North America Accounts for Larger Market Revenue Share in Global Nucleic Acid Testing Market

North America contributed largest share in 2018 with a share of approximately 42% due to increased incidence of certain types of cancers in USA and Canada. For instance, according to National Cancer Institute 2018, approximately 1,735,350 cases diagnosed with cancer in United States. Moreover, rise in R&D for the development of technologically advanced diagnostic methods and sophisticated healthcare infrastructure are bolster the market. Europe nucleic acid testing market contributed highest growth rate in 2018 and expected to grow at 6.3% CAGR over the forecast years owing to adoption of advanced technologies, surge in prevalence of infectious diseases, and favorable reimbursement policies in the region
