Rare Disease Genetic Testing Market Analysis and Size
Genetic testing is a type of medical test that detects changes in genes, chromosomes or proteins. A genetic test's results can confirm after suspected genetic condition or they can help determine a person's risk of developing or passing on a genetic disorder. Most tests are used to diagnose rare genetic disorders, such as Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and Fragile X Syndrome. Genetic tests are performed on a blood sample, amniotic fluid (the fluid that surrounds a foetus during pregnancy), or other tissue. In case of newborns, genetic screening tests are done on a small blood sample obtained by pricking the baby's heel.

Genetic testing is a diagnostic tool that not only aids in the identification of specific disease manifestations but also in determining the underlying causes of genetic disorders. Genetic testing has a variety of advantages such as confirming a diagnosis, determining the cause of unexplained symptoms, and identifying treatment options, including clinical trials. Genetic testing refers to a wide range of applications, ranging from family history collection and evaluation to whole genome screening. Each test has its own set of advantages and disadvantages based on the technology used and the indication for the test. A rare disease refers to a condition, disorder or disease that affects a small percentage of the population at any given time. For instance, in the European Union, it affects fewer than 1 in 2,000 individuals, in the United States, a rare disease is defined as a disease that affects less than 200,000 individuals.
Global Rare Disease Genetic Testing Market Dynamics
- Genetic testing use in research laboratories
Genetic testing is used in the research laboratories for laboratory test to look for variations in an individual's DNA, typically in the context of medical care, ancestry studies, or forensics. A genetic test's results can be used in a medical setting to confirm a suspected genetic disease. Genetic testing is the use of a laboratory test to examine an individual’s DNA for variations, typically performed in the context of ancestry studies, forensics, medical care. These all are the certain factors which propel the growth of market.
- Rise in diagnostic testing
Diagnostic testing is used to identify a specific genetic or chromosomal condition. In many cases, genetic testing is used to confirm a diagnosis when a particular condition is suspected based on physical signs and symptoms. Even though uncovering the genetic cause behind a condition may not directly impact treatment options, it will provide physicians and the families with useful information. For instance, physicians can combine genetic testing with existing clinical and biochemical analyses to accurately confirm a disease diagnosis. These are the factors which boost the market’s growth.
- Rise in disease testing
The Canadian organization for rare disorders (CORD) provides a strong platform for streamlining health policy and a healthcare system dedicated to the management of patients with disorders. The agency works with clinicians, researchers, governments and the diagnostic industry to advance research and development, diagnosis, treatment, and service availability for all rare conditions in the country. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), approximately 30 million Americans have been diagnosed with one of the 7,000+ known rare diseases. With increased awareness, the number of patients undergoing disease testing is expected to rise in the coming years.
- Dearth of trained healthcare personnel
Lack of regulatory framework in emerging economies associated with dearth of trained healthcare personnel will obstruct the market's growth rate.

COVID-19 Impact on the Rare Disease Genetic Testing Market
Patients with undiagnosed and rare diseases have faced significant health challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to a study published in January 2021 by a group of researchers from the United States, there is an urgent need for the development of approaches that can reduce the serious challenges faced by patients and families with rare and undiagnosed diseases. The difficulties include diagnostic or prognostic uncertainty, as well as medical complexity, which leads to poor health outcomes. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic had an impact on clinical trials focusing on rare diseases. Clinical trials have faced several challenges as a result of the pandemic. The difficulties in locating, recruiting, and retaining patients with rare diseases had a significant impact on clinical trials.
- In December 2020, Cell ID Pte. Ltd., a Singapore-based company that manufactures genetic testing products, will launch the Quiz PCR Biochip, a portable genetic test for COVID-19. This is a portable palm-sized moveable genetic test kit that uses an app to determine whether or not a person has COVID-19. This device also included a QR code for tracking purposes. The device employs pooled screening technology. This is easily portable and can conduct tests at any time
