MEA Epigenetics Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The Epigenetics Market size in the Middle East & Africa is estimated to reach USD 131.09 million by 2028 from a market value of USD 79.57 million in 2023, registering a CAGR of 10.5% during the forecast period.

The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer and other targeted diseases drives the MEA Epigenetics market. Also, the growing geriatric population, rising awareness about Epigenetics are expected to augment the market growth. Other growth-inducing factors include creating DNA and RNA modifying enzymes such as acetylases, methyltransferases, reverse transcriptase, and ligases and introducing sensitive and selective testing and instruments.

In addition, increasing funding for epigenetics research and a growing number of applications of epigenetics in non-oncology diseases boost the market growth during the forecast period.  On the other hand, the growth opportunities in developing countries such South Africa, UAE, and Saudi Arabia are estimated to provide lucrative growth opportunities to the market players. However, growing partnerships between academic, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology companies expand the MEA Epigenetics market. 

Moreover, the unexpected outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), on the other hand, presents market participants with growth opportunities. Various research institutes, for example, are conducting advanced epigenetic testing to study the virus's influence on the human genome and creating methods for early detection, risk assessments, and personalized therapies. Further, the region's major players are conducting R&D activities in the biotechnology field due to the growing funding by the government and private organizations.

The main factors limiting the epigenetics market growth are the scarcity of qualified people at diagnostic centers who can use the systems and the high costs of the equipment and treatment choices. In addition, the absence of government payment systems, particularly in emerging countries, and a lack of awareness of various epigenetic techniques are expected to hinder the market growth.
