Illuminating the Future of Healthcare and Decoding the Global Molecular Diagnostics Frontier


The analyses of molecules like DNA, RNA, and proteins present in tissues or fluids, molecular diagnostics can detect various diseases including hereditary, infectious, neurological, and cardiovascular disorders. A range of methods such as mass spectrometry, PCR, next-generation sequencing, in situ hybridization, and molecular imaging are employed for disease diagnosis. Molecular diagnostics harnesses robust technologies like DNA sequence analysis, gene expression profiling, and biomarker identification to accurately identify and diagnose various disorders.

According to Data Bridge Market Research the Molecular Diagnostics Market accounted for USD 20.1 billion in 2022, and expected to reach USD 54.76 billion by 2030. The market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 13.3% in the forecast period of 2023 to 2030.

“Increasing prevalence of HIV”

The market is expected to experience growth due to the rise in infectious diseases. The increasing incidence of sexually transmitted infections like HIV and HPV is particularly driving this growth, as these diseases require frequent molecular testing. In 2020, HIV prevalence was recorded at approximately 37.7 million and 1.5 million cases worldwide, according to the World Health Organization. Individuals with HIV are also at a heightened risk of contracting other infections such as tuberculosis, necessitating multiple molecular tests for efficient treatment. This contributes to the overall market expansion.

What restraints the growth of the molecular diagnostics market?

“Increasing regulatory approvals”

The market's growth is primarily hindered by the regulatory framework governing approvals. Stringent regulations are in place due to the potential for inaccurate results stemming from issues with diagnostic kits or tests performed by untrained individuals. Consequently, these strict regulations are associated with the approval process, creating limitations on market expansion. The focus on maintaining accuracy and reliability acts as a constraint, impacting the growth potential of the market.
