Key Market Trends

Molecular Diagnostics Segment is Expected to Grow with CAGR of 7.12% Over the Forecast Period

Molecular diagnostic devices are used to analyze biological markers in the genome and proteome to detect pathogens or mutations. On the basis of technology used, molecular diagnostic devices can be segmented into chips and microarrays, mass spectroscopy, next-generation sequencing (NGS), polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based methods, cytogenetics, and molecular imaging.

Factors, such as large outbreaks of bacterial and viral epidemics in India, increasing demand for point-of-care diagnostics, and rapidly evolving technology, are driving the growth of the molecular diagnostics segment. Also, advancements in molecular diagnostics and new product launches in India projected to boost the segment growth over the forecast period. For instance, in January 2020, CO-Diagnostics, Inc. and Cosara have launched CoSara tests for tuberculosis, malaria, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and human papillomavirus.
