Molecular Cytogenetics Market Size by Technique (Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization, Comparative Genomic Hybridization, In situ Hybridization, Karyotyping, and Banding Techniques), by Product, by Application, by End User - Global Forecast to 2022

The global Molecular cytogenetics market will grow at a CAGR of 11% from 2017 to 2022 to reach USD 2,266.4 million by 2022, according to this latest publication from Meticulous Research®. The molecular cytogenetics market is driven by increasing focus on preventive healthcare measures, growing genetic abnormalities, increasing aging population and subsequent rise in various chronic diseases, growing need to reduce mounting healthcare cost, and increasing focus on clinical and research diagnosis. Moreover, increasing focus on targeted based therapies and growing predictive and presymptomatic genetic testing further provides significant opportunities in this market. However, lack of awareness about diagnostic technologies, the high cost of diagnosis, and unfavorable reimbursement scenario within the molecular cytogenetics, and technical limitations and complexities of the equipment have embraced the growth of molecular cytogenetic market globally. While the transition from fluorescence in situ hybridization to array based techniques is one of the notable trends observed in the global molecular cytogenetics market.


Market Segmentation


The global molecular cytogenetics market is mainly segmented by technique (fluorescence in situ hybridization, comparative genomic hybridization, in situ hybridization, karyotyping, and banding techniques), by product (instruments, kits and reagents, software, services, and consumable/accessories ), by application (oncology, genetic disorders, personalized medicines, and other), and by end user (pharmaceuticals and biotechnological companies, clinical and diagnostic laboratories, and academic institutes). The comparative genome hybridization is further classified into an array based CGH and matrix based CGH, whereas, the karyotyping market is further segmented into Spectral Karyotyping and virtual karyotyping. Banding techniques are further classified into G banding, R banding, C banding, Q banding, and T banding.
