Albany, NY -- (SBWire) -- 05/08/2018 --Human Microbiome Market: Snapshot

With ample unmet needs, the global market for human microbiome exhibits high potential of growth. The market is set to emerge as a lucrative business in the near future, thanks to the increasing emphasis on diagnosis and treatment of various underrated diseases. The worldwide human microbiome market will be US$2.2 bn in 2020. The lack of targeted drugs for specific conditions, such as ulcerative colitis and C.difficile infection across the world makes this market highly opportune for players to set their innovative drug ideas on the path to commercial success. Driven by these factors, the opportunity in this market is slated to rise at a CAGR of 9.80% between 2020 and 2024 and reach US$3.2 bn by the end of 2024.

Microbiome diagnostics and microbiome therapeutics are the two prominent sections of the global human microbiome market. Currently, the market is in the budding phase, with most of the therapies still being in preclinical or clinical (phase I or phase II) stage. The diagnosis technology is also in the development phase and the leading companies have begun to allocate funds for the research and development and the management of clinical studies for their innovative class of therapies. All these factors are likely to propel this market significantly over the next few years. The human microbiome therapeutics market is likely to report a CAGR of 9.20% during the period of 2020 to 2024, whereas the market for human microbiome diagnostics is anticipated to rise at an 8.60% CAGR between 2018 and 2024.
