Molecular Diagnostics Market: Introduction

According to the report, the global molecular diagnostics market was valued at US$ 14.99 Bn in 2020 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 11.1% from 2021 to 2028. Molecular diagnostics primarily refers to the class of diagnostic tests that identifies nucleic acids or proteins at the molecular level. Molecular diagnostics has emerged as one of the fastest growing segments in the in vitro diagnostics industry.

The molecular diagnostics market has expanded rapidly since the 1990s with the introduction of PCR test for HIV and chlamydia trachomatis & neisseria gonorrhea (CT/NG). Since then, within a span of 20 years, the market has witnessed significant growth. Currently, molecular diagnostic kits are being widely adopted for testing genetic diseases, cancer, hepatitis viruses, and hospital acquired infections. Moreover, molecular diagnostic kits are used extensively for blood donor screening test for hepatitis and HIV.
