Asia-Pacific Genetic Testing Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The size of the genetic testing market in the Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.65% during the forecast period and the regional market size is predicted to be worth USD 4.05 billion by 2029 from USD 2.8 billion in 2024.

As the need to provide superior healthcare due to advancements in healthcare is increasing, genetic testing has become a highly attractive segment in the molecular diagnostics market. The slightest modifications to the inherited disease condition, like chromosomes, genes, or proteins, can be identified through genetic testing. Genetic testing, which analyses genes, chromosomes, or proteins, helps predict the risk of diseases, their diagnosis, the likely course of the disease, and identifying carriers (individuals not having the disease but having a copy of the disease gene) of the disease. Genetic testing has also helped easily diagnose diseases like sickle cell anemia, hemophilia, and cystic fibrosis, helping patients live normal lives.

A few significant factors promoting the Asia-Pacific genetic testing market are the growing awareness among individuals regarding the potential benefits of genetic testing. In addition, advancements and huge investments in the genetic testing space, a growing aging population, a rise in the number of chronic diseases, and increasing cancer cases are the other factors aiding the growth of the genetic testing market.

Cancer genetic testing is estimated to witness high growth and is most likely to accelerate the growth rate of the genetic testing market in this region during the forecast period. The market for screening newborns, diagnosing rare and fatal disorders, and estimating the probability of diseases is likely to expand. Particularly, genetic tests to screen newborns are expected to expand immensely. The growing frequency of genetic diseases unravels new opportunities for genetic testing and its related applications. It is anticipated that the transformation of genetic testing from a service-driven market to a product-driven market will push diagnostic companies to expand their operations.

However, a few factors affect the growth of the genetic testing market, like the authenticity of genetic reports being questioned due to a lack of credible standard procedure. And also, many individuals are concerned about the high cost associated with testing.
