In addition, factors such as limited reimbursement policies for epigenetic tests and therapies, lack of standardization in epigenetic analysis and interpretation of results, regulatory challenges in the approval of epigenetic therapies, limited availability of skilled professionals in epigenetic research and analysis, challenges in obtaining high-quality DNA samples for epigenetic analysis and complexity of epigenetic data analysis and interpretation inhibit the market growth. Furthermore, a limited understanding of the epigenetic mechanisms involved in various diseases and ethical concerns related to epigenetic modifications and their potential effects on future generations impedes the market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global epigenetics market:

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown positive as well as negative impacts on the epigenetics market. The usage of epigenetics has increased significantly during the COVID-19 pandemic owing to the need to discover therapies and treatments for Covid-19. In addition, increased funding by the governments of several countries to conduct research and developmental activities favored the epigenetics market growth. On the other hand, the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic in the global supply chains and non-availability of raw materials, labor and machinery affected the epigenetics market negatively. These have further caused delays in the research and development of new therapies, tools and treatments and caused a decline in the growth rate of the epigenetics market. Likewise, the epigenetics market has experienced a mixed impact from the COVID-19 pandemic.
