Traditionally, diagnostic tests are prescribed by the medical practitioners, approved by healthcare providers and the results are discussed with the patients.The direct-to-consumer (DTC) or at-home tests have transformed conventional testing and have enabled consumers to order their tests from the convenience of their homes, at any time.

With no physician approval required, the DTC tests provide the consumers with freedom to order any test at an affordable cost. Moreover, they have access to the test results, which they can then share with their physicians, if they wish to.

There are several DTC companies across the globe that offer various types of personalized testing.While the majority of these tests are genetic tests, routine biomarker tests and novel microbiome tests have also entered this booming market.

The applications of DTC tests range from ancestry and genealogy testing, to screening for diseases in couples, to identification of genes associated with certain heritable diseases and cancers. Advances in genotyping custom arrays have enabled the identification of traits that are linked to fitness, allergies, sleep disorders, neurological diseases, and many other health and wellness aspects.

Next generation sequencing (NGS) techniques and reducing costs of genetic sequencing have led to significant adoption of whole genome sequencing (WGS) for routine testing. Companies such as Veritas and Nebula Genomics now offer DTC WGS products for less than $REDACTED.

Leading players, such as 23andMe, are strategizing new business models to foster growth in this market.Partnerships with healthcare and pharmaceutical companies to drive research in disease pathogenesis and drug discovery are accelerating.

Also, many companies have partnered with large healthcare networks such as PWN Health to provide in-house licensed physicians, and thereby, add reliability to their products. The DTC testing market is driven by increasing consumer demand for at-home testing kits, expanding access to these products through online and retail options, decreasing test costs, and expanding applications of these tests.

The market is, however, restrained by lack of proper regulation for DTC tests.Data privacy and security are ongoing challenges.

Lack of population-specific databases has also delayed the adoption of tests by many populations.

As new players enter the emerging markets and population-based projects also expand, the DTC testing market is expected to have new opportunities in these regions.Growing consumer awareness and improving lifestyles are also expected to contribute to further growth of this market.

Many players, including Quest Diagnostics, Everlywell and many others, launched COVID-19 at-home testing kits. Sales from these kits are expected to boost market growth in the coming years.
