Europe Molecular Diagnostics Market size was valued at USD 2.0 billion in 2017 and is expected to witness 7.5% growth from 2018 to 2024.
Germany Molecular Diagnostics Market, By Application, 2013 – 2024 (USD Million)
Growing geriatric population that prefers personalized medicines will drive Europe molecular diagnostics market growth during the upcoming years. According to WHO by 2020, the European population should increase to 910 million and majority of the elderly population base suffers from chronic disorders that should increase the demand for molecular diagnostics service. Additionally, favorable reimbursement scenario available for molecular diagnostics procedures will resolve affordability issues of elderly population escalating the demand for molecular diagnostics service. However, high costs associated with the molecular diagnostics devices may restrain the business growth.
Genetic testing segment will have at 9.0% CAGR over the forecast timeframe. Growing incidences of genetic diseases should positively impact the segmental growth. According to global genes in 2015, around 30 million Europeans suffered from rare genetic diseases that will upsurge the business growth over the forecast timeframe.
PCR segment was valued at USD 863.3 million in 2017 and is expected to witness high growth trends over the estimated forecast. Technological advancements in the PCR devices will enable accurate diagnosis of diseases. RT-PCR technology will have considerable demand due to numerous factors including increasing use in research and medical diagnostics, expansion of installation base and growing use of robotics for lab automation that should escalate segmental growth.
Germany molecular diagnostics market accounted for 21.0% of regional revenue share in 2017. Increasing number of diseases due life style factors such as heart disease coupled with rising discoveries in molecular biology and human genetics will drive the molecular diagnostics market in the country. Rapidly evolving techniques in molecular biology, high stage of sophistication in healthcare and scientific biomedical applications and innovative approaches in technology will propel the industry growth over the forecast period.
