Revenue of Molecular Diagnostics Market from 2018 to 2022 Compared to Demand Outlook for 2023 to 2033

As per the Molecular Diagnostics Market research by Persistence Market Research - a market research and competitive intelligence provider, historically, from 2018 to 2022, the market value increased at around 3.8% CAGR.

Molecular diagnostics has evolved as a superior approach in the previous decade, achieving the objective of speedier illness detection with less complexity. The need for these treatments is escalating particularly for diagnoses of infectious diseases. Infectious disease incidence is increasing both in developed and developed regions, increasing the demand for molecular diagnostic tests.

Some of the viral and bacterial epidemics in the Middle East and Africa compelled governments and research institutes throughout the world to embrace molecular diagnostic methods to stop the outbreaks.

Companion diagnostics help medical professionals make treatment decisions for a patient based on their response to treatment. Companion diagnostics using therapeutic products have the potential to significantly transform the development of prescription drugs and commercialization by speeding the design and development of safer medications with more effective therapeutic results.

The market for companion diagnostics is rising due to the need for pricey specialized treatments and safer drugs. The trend for molecular diagnostics can generate prospective opportunities for the companion diagnostics industry.

For treatment to become more effective and safe, pharmaceutical businesses are cooperating with diagnostic companies. The expanded availability of optimized therapeutic aids is anticipated to propel industry growth over the next few years.

Which Factors are Propelling Molecular Diagnostics Demand?

Managing microbial outbreaks and diseases across the globe is currently a key concern for all governments across the world. The market for molecular diagnostics is being boosted by the significant involvement of resources in terms of technology, experience, and financial services, as well as a favorable climate for the replication of research initiatives, particularly for infectious illnesses. Furthermore, an increase in infectious disease awareness campaigns undertaken by global organizations such as the World Health Organization, and the World Bank, among others are expected to encourage healthcare fraternities to step forward with the goal of increasing the use of such diagnostic tools.

Advances in molecular biology and infectious diseases in developed and underdeveloped countries would further propel the market growth for molecular diagnostics. A large number of prescriptions are handed out for molecular diagnostic tests due to the detection and treatment of a wide range of illnesses.

In the upcoming projection period, the aforementioned factors, together with the advancing tendency toward preventive care, are projected to boost demand for molecular diagnostics. Molecular diagnostics provide these tests, which, as a result, are projected to have a positive effect on this market.

What are the key factors hindering the growth of the Molecular Diagnostics Market?

Molecular diagnostic devices are costly, wherein the variable costs of the reagents required, as well as those set by the suppliers, contribute to the total cost. Additional expenditures include maintenance and insurance, laboratory supervision, and overhead costs such as utilities, space, and administration.

Only key hospitals and reference laboratories with substantial capital budgets are able to afford the high volume of molecular diagnostic tools. Most small laboratories, physician offices, and solo practitioners do not have capital budgets, thus they may not be able to buy a large or very large analyzer. As a result, high costs may limit the expansion of the molecular diagnostics industry.
