Genetic testing is the study of genes that examines genetic material taken from cells in a persons blood sample or a sample of other body fluids. The study is conducted in relation to hereditary and variations in genes and number of chromosomes, which are used for the detection of genetic disorders as well as selection of precise therapies for the treatment of these genetic disorders. Genetic testing includes various techniques such as comparative genomic hybridization, fluorescence in situ hybridization, karyotyping, immunohistochemistry, and others.

The global genetic testing market is expected to register substantial growth in the near future due to rise in incidence of genetic disorders & cancer. In addition, growing demand for personalized medicine and increasing application of genetic testing in oncology are expected to boost the market growth during the forecast period. However, high costs of genetic testing and stringent regulatory requirements for product approvals are anticipated to hamper the genetic testing market growth during the forecast period. Conversely, untapped emerging markets in developing countries are expected to provide remunerative opportunities for the market players. Therefore, these drivers and opportunities are anticipated to boost the global genetic testing market share.

Based on type, the market is segmented into predictive testing, carrier testing, prenatal & newborn testing, diagnostic testing, pharmacogenomic testing, and others. The diagnostic testing segment currently holds the lead with revenue in 2017 and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. This is attributable to the growth in awareness among people regarding health and increase in incidences of mortality rate due to the genetic diseases across the world. On the other hand, the pharmacogenomic testing segment is anticipated to witness highest CAGR during the forecast period. This is largely due to increase in application of drug discovery and development by the pharmaceutical companies.

Based on geography, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. North America was the leading revenue contributor to the global genetic testing market in 2017 and is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period. This is attributed to the presence of majority of key players in this region. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to increase in affordability, surge in healthcare expenditure, and rise in awareness toward early screening of genetic disorders. Furthermore, the number of travelers to the cholera-affected countries is increasing, which in turn increases the demand for immunization.
