[101 Pages Report] This market research report includes a detailed segmentation of the global molecular diagnostics market by application (oncology, blood testing, infectious disease, genetic testing, and tissue typing), by technology type (PCR, INAAT, Microarray, Hybridization, DNA Sequencing and other MDX technology), by end-users (hospitals, reference laboratories and others), and by regions (Americas, APAC, EMEA, and RoW). The market research report identifies F.Hoffmann-La Roche, Abbott Diagnostics, Siemens Healthineers, Danaher, and Hologic as the major vendors operating in the global molecular diagnostics market.

Overview of the Global Molecular Diagnostics Market Research

Infoholic’s market research report predicts that the global molecular diagnostics market will grow at a CAGR of 8.7% during the forecast period. The market for molecular diagnostics is driven by increasing prevalence of infectious and other lifestyle diseases, increasing demand for non-invasive biomarker-based tests, growing adoption of point-of-care testing, and high growth of the market in emerging countries. Increasing number of mergers & acquisitions and growing significance of companion diagnostics are providing opportunities for the market growth. Low awareness about standardization, stringent regulatory approval process, and lack of skilled labors are hampering the market growth.

According to the molecular diagnostics industry analysis, North America accounted for the largest share of the global molecular diagnostics market in 2017. The reason for the market’s growth in the Americas is the increasing incidences of disease and organ transplantation in the US along with increasing funding by government and private players and increased adoption of personalized medicine in clinical practices are some of the factors driving the molecular diagnostics market growth. The Asia Pacific region is expected to witness the fastest growth rate due to the large patient pool, increasing awareness, and rising healthcare expenditure.

Molecular Diagnostics Market Research competitive analysis and key vendors
Molecular diagnostics are performed mainly to examine the existence of the disease in blood, tissue, or even in bones. The importance of nucleic acids and other cellular biomarkers in defining the vital cellular process has facilitated medical advancements in the diagnosis of various diseases. Early diagnosis of the disease is one of the key advantages of this technology. The capacity of molecular diagnostics to systematize molecular reactions for the enhancement of the clinical diagnosis has put healthcare in the front line. The increasing importance of molecular diagnostic tests has resulted in the launch of new tests and also increased acquisition, strategic partnership, and funding to develop new tests and technologies. For instance, in April 2018, NanoString Technologies, Inc. launched a Breast Cancer 360 (BC 360) research panel. In July 2017, MDxHealth SA announced the commercial launch of its AssureMDx for bladder cancer test in the US as a laboratory developed test. Illumina recently started a new company, named GRAIL, for liquid biopsy. It invested $100 million and raised another $900 million through public funding to develop new non-invasive tests for cancer diagnosis.

Some of the Key Vendors in the Molecular Diagnostics Market Research are:

  • Hoffmann-La Roche

  • Abbott Diagnostics

  • Siemens Healthineers

  • Danaher

  • Hologic

Molecular Diagnostics Market Research by Application type

  • Oncology

  • Blood Testing

  • Infectious Disease

  • Genetic Testing

  • Tissue Typing

In 2017, the infectious disease application occupied the largest share due to large number of patients suffering from hospital-associated infection, sexually transmitted infection (STI), hepatitis, respiratory infection, pathogen ID detection, and others is fostering the market growth, but oncology is expected to grow at the highest growth rate during the forecast period due to increasing incidence of cancer globally.

Molecular Diagnostics Market Research By Technology

  • PCR


  • Microarray

  • Hybridization

  • DNA Sequencing

  • Other MDX Technology

In 2017, the PCR segment occupied the largest share. PCR is a gold standard technique for DNA amplification and is the primary technique conducted prior to any molecular diagnostic examination Next-generation sequencing and microarray are expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period.

Molecular Diagnostics Market Research By End-Users

  • Hospitals

  • Reference Laboratories

  • Others

In 2017, the hospitals occupied the largest share and is expected to continue the same trend during the forecast period.
