The Global Molecular Diagnostics Market, by Product Type (Reagents & Kits and Instruments), By Application (Oncology, Genetic Testing, Microbiology, STDs, Blood Screening, Virology, Tissue Typing, Prenatal Diagnosis, and Others), By End User (Hospitals, Diagnostic Laboratories, Academic and Research Labs, and Other) was valued US$ 8,623.2 million in 2017 and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 11.5% over the forecast period (2017 - 2025).
New product launches by market players coupled with rising government initiatives are major factors driving growth of the global molecular diagnostics market over the forecast period. Molecular diagnostic test are done for diagnosis and drug discovery & development purpose. Molecular diagnostic test results are quick and accurate, which has led to increasing demand for these. In order to cater to growing demand for such tests, manufacturers are more focused on research & development for new product launches. For instance, in February 2017, AITbiotech Pte Ltd., a Singapore-based genomic service and molecular diagnostics (MDx) company, exhibited its comprehensive range of abTES MDx assays, including its newly launched Zika assays and the multiplex respiratory panel, at MEDLAB 2017, the world’s largest laboratory exhibition and congress in the Middle East. Furthermore, in October 2017, FDA approved Roche’s cobas Zika, as first commercially-available donor screening test for Zika virus. In October 2017, QIAGEN launched the custom solution for the molecular diagnostic test, which accelerated adoption of molecular testing for life sciences and molecular diagnostics companies. Moreover, governments of various countries are focusing on initiatives, in order to develop novel techniques in precision medicines. For instance, the U.S. government launched Precision Medicine Initiative (PMI) in 2015, in order to increase awareness and focus on advancements in the precision medicine field, which in turn is expected to favor growth of the molecular diagnostics market.
