Middle East and Africa Genetic Testing Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The genetic testing market size in the Middle East & Africa was worth USD 3.92 billion in 2023 and is estimated to reach USD 5.77 billion by 2029 from USD 4.18 billion in 2024, growing at a CAGR of 6.64% during the forecast period.

Genetic testing has been widely used in pharmacogenomics, often known as drug-gene testing. Furthermore, genetic testing methodologies are projected to enhance market growth throughout the forecast period. These test findings can be used to monitor a current health condition, diagnose an undetected medical issue, or provide information on personal health characteristics.

The rise in the prevalence of genetic disorders and cancer has had a favorable impact on the growth of the genetic testing market in the Middle East and Africa. During the forecast period, personalized medicine therapy is expected to boost the market growth.  As the demand for quick, cost-effective, and accurate tests grows, several firms consider giving actionable recommendations alongside the test findings. Customers are more likely to seek out customized services due to this technique, which boosts customer satisfaction. In addition, direct-to-consumer laboratory testing, also known as direct access testing, allows patients to order tests from a lab without going through a healthcare provider. Additionally, factors such as technological advancements in the field of genetic testing, as well as the rising risk of chromosomal abnormalities as maternal age rises, are further estimated to accelerate the growth rate of the market. In addition, the growing incidence of male and female infertility is also forecasted to contribute to the market’s growth.

During the forecast period, however, standardized debates about genetic test-based diagnostics and tight legal requirements for product approvals are projected to hamper the growth of the genetic testing market in the MEA region.
