Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2035

Genetic Testing Market size is poised to reach USD 45 billion by the end of 2035, growing at a CAGR of 9% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of genetic testing was over USD 19 billion. The reason behind the growth is impelled by the rising prevalence of hereditary illnesses. The prevalence of hereditary illnesses is rising as a result of a lack of understanding of the usefulness of genetic testing.

Patients could use genetic testing to help them make crucial decisions about the early diagnosis, treatment, or prevention of hereditary illnesses. For instance, more than 250,000 kids worldwide are born with sickle cell disease each year, and the disease affects over 4% of the world's population.

The growing popularity of personalized medicine is believed to fuel the market growth. Personalized medicine is becoming incredibly popular, since it helps patients' prognoses and therapies to be more effective, and is a fresh and improved method of treating patients that is based on the individual genetic composition of each patient. Personalized medicine uses genetic testing to enable providers to better serve their patients, advance precision and personalized medicine, and increase patient outcomes.

Genetic Testing Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growth in Penetration of Online Website to Purchase Products– Since the prevalence of online websites is so high, genetic kits are easily available through the same, reaching a large number of customers. Owing to this, the demand for home genetic testing is growing. At-home genetic testing is the greatest option for people who wish to learn more about their heritage, family links, or special genetic features such as caffeine sensitivity or other dietary requirements. With a substantial surge from a few years ago, there are now over 3 billion consumers who purchase online across the globe.
  • Growing Geriatric Population- The elderly population is more prone to certain genetic-related diseases. Moreover, when the genes or chromosomes undergo a mutation, genetic illnesses result. While some illnesses manifest symptoms at birth, others do so over time. Hence, the significance of genetic testing is growing. According to the World Health Organization, one in six people on the planet is estimated to be 60 years of age or older by the year 2030. At this point, it is anticipated to be 1.4 billion people, up from 1 billion in 2020, who are 60 years of age or older.


  • Growing Price of Genetic Testing- The intricacy of the associated processes is the primary cause of the high cost of genetic testing. The price is determined by several elements, including the test's type. In some particular situations, the patient's age affects the cost as well. Moreover, the three major factors involved in genetic testing are the time-consuming process, the need for advanced-level medical technology, and the intensive labor procedure. Genetic testing is more expensive than other types of testing owing to all of these variables.
  • Issues with Genetic Testing-Based Diagnostics' Uniformity
  • Regulatory Standards that are Strict for Product Approvals

Genetic Testing Segmentation

Disease (Cancer, Alzheimer’s, Thalassemia, Cystic Fibrosis, Huntington Disease, Duchene Muscular Dystrophy)

The cancer segment is estimated to hold 25% share of the global genetic testing market in the coming years owing to the growing prevalence of cancers owing to genetic inherent. However, parents can't pass on cancer to their offspring. Furthermore, tumor cells' altered genetic makeup cannot be passed on to offspring. 

Yet, if a cancer-risk-raising genetic mutation exists in a parent's sperm or egg cells, it could be inherited (transmitted). Hence, owing to this factor the genetic testing demand is growing. If a person has inherited a genetic alteration that raises the risk of developing cancer, several genetic testing could reveal this. Normally, a little amount of blood is used for the cancer screening, but it is also occasionally possible to use saliva, cells from inside the cheek, or skin cells.

As per the estimates, inherited genetic alterations could account for up to 10% of cancer cases.

Test Type (Carrier Testing, Predictive Testing, Diagnostic Testing, Parental & Newborn Testing, Nutrigenomics, Pharmacogenomics)

Genetic testing market from the diagnostic testing segment is set to garner a notable share shortly backed by growing cases of chronic disease that need to be diagnosed. Long-lasting disorders known as chronic diseases could typically be managed but not cured. Individuals who have chronic conditions sometimes struggle with managing day-to-day symptoms that impair their quality of life, as well as acute health issues and consequences that may reduce their life expectancy.

In addition, chronic diseases including depression and back pain are frequently the main causes of decreased productivity and rising healthcare expenses. However, chronic diseases and their repercussions could frequently be avoided or effectively managed by effective behavior change initiatives, adequate medical therapy, and thorough monitoring to identify new issues. Hence, the need for diagnostic tests is growing, further boosting the market growth. According to estimates, globally, more than 40 million people die from chronic diseases each year.
