As the foundation of providing superior healthcare lies in diagnosis, genetic testing represents a highly attractive segment in molecular diagnostics market. Genetic testing is a sophisticated form of medical testing for identification of slightest alteration in chromosomes, genes, or proteins that are associated with inherited disorders. The outcome of such tests can confirm or even rule out a suspected genetic condition and help the physician with greater precision towards determining a person’s chance of developing or passing on a genetic disorder. Several hundred genetic tests are currently in use, and more are being developed.

The global genetic testing market is presently in a strong growth trajectory, mainly backed by factors like aging population, increasing incidences for genetic disorders, and rising awareness. In 2010, the genetic testing market worldwide stood at around an estimated mark of US$ 1.5 Billion, which is anticipated to reach at US$ 4 Billion by 2015. Particularly, genetic testing for cancer is likely to emerge as one of the fastest growing segments as private sector and scientific community are actively participating in the oncology-specific areas.

Currently, direct-to-consumer (DTC) genetic testing is the buzz word in market. Companies including deCODE and 23andme have profound effect on the market. The segment is characterized by a sudden inflow of players prompting the healthcare authorities to spark debate on the subject.
