Pharmacogenetic Testing Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Integration of Electronic Health Records - Comprehensive patient health records and effective, centralized genetic data storage are made possible by seamless integration. This combination makes pharmacogenetic data easier to find and use for medical practitioners, empowering them to make data-driven decisions in real time. When arranging a patient's course of therapy, doctors can easily access genetic insights to ensure that pharmaceuticals are prescribed that are specific to each patient's genetic makeup. The adoption of pharmacogenetic testing is accelerated by the efficiency gains gained from this integration, which also lead to better patient care, streamlined workflows, and eventually, pharmacogenetic testing market expansion. 
  • Growing Adoption of Personalized Medicines - Because it allows for the customization of medication therapies based on a patient's genetic composition, pharmacogenetic testing is essential to personalized medicine. This novel method entails examining a person's genetic differences, which can affect how they metabolize and react to particular drugs. By looking at each individual's distinct genetic makeup, medical professionals can find genetic markers that indicate how their body uses and processes medications. With the use of this data, medication choices and dosages can be tailored to maximize therapeutic results. Pharmacogenetic testing is a major driver behind the personalized medicine paradigm, which is transforming healthcare by encouraging more focused and customized treatment plans that lead to better patient results.


  • Reliance of Medical and Genomic Expert for Result Interpretation - One significant obstacle facing the market is the significant reliance on medical and genomic professionals to interpret results. Accurate and meaningful analysis of genetic data requires particular knowledge and skills due to its complicated nature. Highly qualified experts in genetics, pharmacology, and genomics are crucial to correctly interpreting the results of pharmacogenetic tests. The widespread acceptance of pharmacogenetic testing and its scalability are hindered by this dependency. The lack of sufficient competent specialists and the time and effort needed for accurate interpretation frequently cause delays in giving patients and healthcare professionals useful information.
  • High cost of Test is expected to hinder the pharmacogenetic testing market growth in the forecast period
  • Limited evidence for clinical utility and uncertainty regarding benefit of pharmacogenetic test is expected to hinder the market expansion in the forecast period.

Pharmacogenetic Testing Segmentation

Therapeutic Area (Cardiology, Gastroenterology, Anesthesiology, Genomics, Endocrinology, Immunology & Hypersensitivity, Dermatology, Gynecology, Oncology, Neurology)

In terms of therapeutic area, the oncology segment in the pharmacogenetic testing market is anticipated to hold the highest CAGR of 20% by the end of 2036. The growth of this industry can be primarily driven by increasing focus and massive expenditure on cancer research. The global number of cancer cases has grown in the last few years and they are expected to double and triple by the end of 2050. Therefore, this would create a lucrative demand for effective and personalized cancer treatments. Cancer is the leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for nearly 10 million deaths in 2020, or nearly one in six deaths, reported as of World Health Organization.

Distribution Channel (Hospital Pharmacy, Retail Pharmacies, Mail-Order Pharmacies, Direct-to-Customer Services)

Based on distribution channel, the hospital pharmacy segment is expected to hold 40% share of the global pharmacogenetic testing market during the time period between 2024-2036. Pharmacogenetic testing can aid in identifying patients who are unlikely to respond to certain medications or at risk of severe side effects leading to more targeted and effective plans. This translates to enhanced clinical outcomes, reduced hospital readmissions and lowered healthcare costs.
