Microarray Genetic Analysis to Offer Direct-To-Consumer Genetic Testing US$ 4.0 Bn Market Opportunity by 2032. Direct-To-Consumer Genetic Testing Market in Asia Pacific is projected to grow at a 4.5% rate over the next few years.

NEWARK, Del., July 6, 2022 – As per Future Market Insights’ latest study, the global direct-to-consumer genetic testing market stood at around US$ 1.3 Bn in 2021 and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 11.2% over the forecast period, with an estimated valuation of US$ 4.0 Bn in 2032.

The direct-to-consumer genetic testing market is expected to grow at a steady pace due to increasing demand for personalized medicines in healthcare facilities for personal use, as well as safety of patients’ health. Emergence of various epidemics and their looming health dangers is also projected to boost the demand for direct-to-consumer genetic testing solutions among the general public and healthcare professionals, thereby supporting the market.

Furthermore, ongoing advancements in terms of characterization of DNA sequence variants related to the risk of commonly diagnosed diseases such as Crohn’s disease, type-2 diabetes, breast cancer, MI, and prostate cancer are set to aid growth. Despite significant attempts by dedicated researchers, only a few sequence variants associated with these diseases had been appropriately verified by replication in well-powered studies before 2006.

In addition, development of cutting-edge microarray genetic analysis technologies is expected to enable researchers to determine genotypes at hundreds and thousands of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) instantaneously and cost-effectively across the genome. Additionally, key players are focusing on novel product developments with enhanced efficacy in terms of efficiency and safety.

For instance, in August 2020, Ancestry, a global leader in family history and consumer genomics, announced the launch of AncestryHealth. It is powered by next generation sequencing (NGS), which would help in providing easy access to important information about wellbeing to consumers.
