MEA Precision Medicine Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The precision medicine market size in MEA is estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 11.32% from 2023 to 2028. As a result, the size of the market is expected to be USD 8.52 billion by 2028 from USD 4.98 billion in 2023.

Precision medicine is mainly one of the emerging approaches to preventive health and for the treatment of disease. Mainly the approach allows doctors and physicians or a patient to study the individual response to therapy. 

The Middle East and Africa precision medicine market is expected to be driven by the rise in online collaborative forums in developing and developed economies increased adoption of gene therapy across the region, and increased use of big data analytics in precision medicine in developing and developed economies advancements in cancer biology. In this regional market, the adoption and deployment of advanced technologies are a must-is opportunity, and it is expected to boost the market's growth during the forecast period.

The rising prevalence of cancer is expected to accelerate the demand for individualized cancer diagnostics and therapies. Furthermore, the precision medicine market in the MEA region is further predicted to grow during the forecast period due to substantial changes in the field of gene therapy, rise in the demand for gene therapy to treat major chronic illnesses and cancer, increased R&D for selecting the most effective treatment based on preclinical research and tumor molecular analysis. In addition, the growing demand for preventive care, along with advancements in next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies, has resulted in an unprecedented proliferation and deluge of genomic sequence data, propelling the precision medicine market forward in the MEA region. 

However, misinterpretation of health and genetic data, an increase in the cost of precision medicine, reimbursement issues, and a breach of the privacy regulation are some of the limitations that would limit the market's growth during the forecast period.

Impact of COVID-19 on the MEA precision medicine market:

The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic had a significant influence on the precision medicine market in various ways.  Precision medicine has been advancing since the pandemic arrived. The healthcare sectors in the region are focussing on precision medicine and genome research to understand the SARS-COV-2 susceptibility further, analyze its effectiveness and identify viable treatments. In addition, precision medicine has pushed governments, medical institutions, and academics to collaborate to create more effective medications faster. 

In 2020, the San Antonio Partnership for Precision Therapeutics, for example, announced financing for three initiatives focused on speeding COVID-19 intervention. These studies would look at how biological substances, such as proteins in the immune system and respiratory tract, affect an individual's virus response and how researchers might use this information to build therapies. As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, healthcare professionals seek alternatives to standard systems and practices. As a result, digital medical care is rapidly adopted across the industry, from providers to consumers. In addition, patients turn to digital treatments since non-essential requirements are given low priority during the pandemic.
