Epigenetics Market Size, Growth (2022 to 2027)

As per our report, the global epigenetics market size is predicted to grow from USD 892.6 million in 2022 to USD 1706.6 million by 2027, showcasing a CAGR of 13.84 % during the forecast period.

Epigenetics is the study of change in behavior of organisms by modification of gene expression rather than a change in genetic code itself. Genes will get turned off or turned on depending on the circumstances, interactions, etc. These turning on and off of genes differ in most humans, making humans unique. Some of these traits are passed down to future generations as heritable traits. The study of this entire mechanism is called Epigenetics. For instance, epigenetic change is DNA methylation, where the addition of a methyl group to part of the DNA molecule prevents certain gene expressions. This type of epigenetic change of DNA methylation is associated with cancer development and progression. Scientist claim that the genetical changes such a tumor suppression helps prevent cancer from one generation to other. In many other aspects, epigenetics methodology contributes to helping diagnose diseased conditions earlier and prevent them for future generations. 


The rising prevalence of cancer and technological advancements in cancer treatment are majorly driving the growth of the Global Epigenetics Market.

Globally, the number of individuals who have Cancer has increased significantly. There is about 18 million population suffering from Cancer. The primary cancer types are Cancer of the oral cavity and pharynx, Breast Cancer, Bowel Cancer, Lung cancer, prostate cancer. Similarly, in that, 33% caused because of smoking habits. Obesity and Overweight is the second biggest cause of cancer after smoking.

The origin and progression of cancer are associated with epigenetic changes such as dysregulation of DNA methylation. Epigenetics offers new ways to develop therapeutic approaches to reverse cancer dysregulation. Several cancer research trials are currently underway using epigenetics techniques; massive investments are being made to support them.

The global epigenetics market is further driven by the increasing funding in R&D and the increasing frequency of research activities in this field.


The dearth of the skilled person in utilizing the systems in diagnostic centers and the high costs associated with the instruments and treatment options are the major factors restraining the growth of the epigenetics market.

Difficulties in getting approvals from government organizations for innovative products, lack of reimbursement schemes by the government, especially in undeveloped countries, and lack of awareness of different epigenetic techniques in the rural areas are further expected to limit the market growth. 

Impact of COVID-19 on the global epigenetics market:

The SARS-CoV-2 reagent is responsible for causing COVID 19 worldwide. Millions of people are affected by the infection, and almost all sectors are involved, including the medical field. Epigenetics plays a vital role in the inflexibility of symptoms in COVID 19. Efforts focus on recognizing and advancing efficient pharma plans, and precision medicine holds a commitment to a voluminous increase in guarding the epigenetic variability in SARS-Cov-2 infection. The epigenetic mechanisms are an essential part of the pathophysiology and illness severity of COVID-19. The structure and anatomy have been recognized in the SARS-CoV-2, also among the other infections. Scientists are researching how the coronavirus impacts the administering and controlling of the human genome. For example, the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and other medical schools advanced an epigenetic test that permits early recognition of the new coronavirus leading to COVID-19. Epigenetics of the COVID-19 infection helps clinicians identify the virus more appropriately, evaluate the risk and severity of the diseases, and personalize treatment options across varying patient profiles. Recent research of epigenetic alterations could better unveil predicting makers, new targets, and the associated mechanisms of SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19.
