Rare disease diagnostics has grown significantly since the technology was first commercialized with whole genome and exome sequencing, but it is important to quantify that growth and describe future trends. The genome testing industry is proliferating, and its growth is expected to continue at a torrid pace. However, there are significant challenges that may dampen future growth, if not addressed.
Our healthcare experts have found rare disease diagnostics to be one of the most rapidly evolving technologies, and the global market is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 8.57% over the forecast period of 2020-2030.
The unmet clinical needs for better tools to predict, diagnose, treat, and monitor diseases are acting as significant factors driving the growth of the sequencing industry. Other factors fueling the growth include increased understanding of the molecular basis of diseases, patient demand, industry investment, and regulations that allow marketing of tests without the FDA approval.
Despite rapid advanced sequencing industry growth, there are several key issues that need to be addressed to facilitate future growth. The relatively high total costs of delivering sequencing test results compared with other technology platforms, and limited coverage by payers, are the key challenges to the growth of this industry. Whole genome and exome sequencing remain relatively costly, requiring initial equipment investment, specialized workforce requirements, and time-intensive variant interpretation.
Within the research report, the market has been segmented on the basis of disease type, product, sample, age group, testing type, technology, end user, and region. Each of these segments cover the snapshot of the market over the projected years, the inclination of the market revenue, underlying patterns, and trends by using analytics on the primary and secondary data obtained.
The exponential rise in the application of next-generation sequencing on the global level has created a buzz among companies to invest in the products and services of next-generation sequencing used for rare disease diagnostics. Due to the diverse product portfolio and intense market penetration, whole genome and exome have been pioneers in this field and significant competitors in this market.
Based on region, North America holds the largest share, owing to improved healthcare infrastructure, rise in per capita income, and improvised reimbursement policies in the region. Apart from this, Latin America and the Asia-Pacific are anticipated to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period.
