Global Ontogenetic Market: Regional Insights

Based on geography, the global ontogenetic market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa.

Among regions, North America is expected to gain highest share in the market during the forecast period owing to the increasing burden of neurologic disorders and increase in use of ontogeny (as potential diagnostic tool) in the field of neuroscience. For instance, in case of Alzheimer's disease, optogenetics enables a more precise diagnosis of the neural activity of the brain. According to the Alzheimer's Association, over 6 million Americans of all ages have Alzheimer's. About 1 in 9 age 65 and older (10.7%) has Alzheimer's, while an estimated 6.5 million Americans age 65 and older were living with Alzheimer's in 2022. This in turn is driving the market growth.

Europe and Asia Pacific are also expected to witness significant growth in the global ontogenetic market due to the increase in adoption of various oncologic practices and rise in patient population in these regions. For instance, optogenetics can be used as potential tool for both the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of diseases, such as neurological diseases. According to the report published in July 2021 by the Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI), the burden of non-communicable neurological disorders is increasing in India mainly due to ageing of the population. India’s elderly population (aged 60 and above) is expected to touch 194 million in 2031 from 138 million in 2021, according to the National Statistical Office (NSO)’s Elderly in India 2021 report.

One of the key factors expected to boost growth of the global ontogenetic market over the forecast period is the rise prevalence of neurological disorders around the world. For instance, in neural research, optogenetic methods for monitoring synaptic activity proved to be extremely useful in a variety of neurological diseases. As per the Alzheimer's Disease International (ADI), someone in the world develops dementia every 3 seconds. There are over 55 million people around the world living with dementia in 2020. This number will almost double every 20 years, reaching 78 million in 2030 and 139 million in 2050, driving the market growth.

Increase in research and development to underpin market growth

Another factor which is driving the growth of the global ontogenetic market is the rise in research & development and government initiatives to encourage research. For instance, due to the increase in research activities on optogenetics as a potential tool for the diagnosis and treatment of various neurological diseases, the market is expected to witness robust growth, as optogenetic have proved to be extremely useful for the diagnosis and treatment of many neurological diseases. According to the study published in September 2019 in Frontier Neurology, optogenetics is an indispensable tool for the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy, a neurological disorder.

Global Ontogenetic Market Opportunities:

Technological advancements in the field of ontogenesis are expected to provide significant growth opportunities for players in the global ontogenetic market. For instance, several advancements in the field of ontogenesis are assisting research on optogenetics. According to the study published in May 2019 by the National Institutes of Health, optogenetics could be more fully integrated with other technologies used to study brain circuits, such as electrophysiology and calcium or voltage imaging, in addition to producing bigger, faster, and stronger opsins. This in turn is expected to aid in the growth of the global ontogenetic market.

Growing geriatric population across the globe is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for players in the global ontogenetic market. For instance, neurological diseases are more common in adults, affecting people 60 years of age and older. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), over 20% of adults aged 60 and over suffer from a mental or neurological disorder and 6.6% of all disability among people aged 60 and over is attributed to both mental and neurological disorders. Thus, with the growing geriatric population, the usage of optogenetics for the treatment and diagnosis of neurological diseases is also increasing.
