Genetic testing, or deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) testing, refers to a medical technique that identifies changes in the chromosome structure or DNA sequence. It includes the collection and analysis of individual blood samples for examining the genetic condition and the chances of developing or passing various inherited disorders in laboratory settings.
Genetic testing assists in providing accurate results regarding gene mutation, eliminating the need for unnecessary checkups, and making informed decisions to manage health. At present, genetic testing is commercially available in varying types, such as carrier, diagnostic, predictive, presymptomatic and prenatal testing .
The increasing prevalence of genetic and chronic disorders across the growth represents the key factor driving the genetic testing market growth. This is further supported by the implementation of numerous favorable initiatives undertaken by the government bodies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) for sensitizing masses regarding genetic testing. In line with this, the extensive utilization of genetic testing in pharmacogenomics, or drug-gene testing for examining the response of the body against certain medicines after its interaction with inherited genes, is contributing as another growth-inducing factor.
Additionally, the sudden outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has led to the widespread adoption of virtual testing and the home testing kits for sample collection purposes, which, in turn, is contributing to the market growth. The tremendous technological advancements in genetic testing techniques along with the introduction of…
