Global Molecular Diagnostics Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.6% during forecasted period 2018-2023. Molecular diagnostics is a branch of diagnostics which utilizes molecular biology to detect and measure the presence of genetic material or proteins related to a specific health condition. Molecular diagnostics is an integral part of in-vitro diagnostics, used to detect definite sequences in DNA/RNA, or in single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), rearrangements, insertions and deletions. It is a collection of techniques used to analyse biomarkers in genomics and proteomics. Molecular diagnostics plays a vital role in infectious disease testing as they provide fast and effective results. Molecular diagnostics is a significant tool when it is essential to diagnose and treat at molecular level.
Molecular diagnostics market is driven by advancements in technology as they provide higher accuracy and cost-effectiveness. The growing incidence of infectious diseases and various types of cancers rise in awareness programs, progress in biomarker identification, acceptance of personalized medicines are the factors expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period. Additionally, rise in occurrence rates of cardiovascular disorders, genetic disorders, neurological disorders are also expected to fuel the market growth.
