Epigenetics Market

Based on the applications, the global epigenetics market is segmented as follows:

  • Cancer
  • Metabolic Diseases
  • Immune Diseases
  • Cardiovascular Diseases
  • Others

From the last few decades, the demand for epigenetics study in characterization of various diseases has increased in the field of drug discovery and life science research. Applicability of epigenetics study for complex diseases such as cancer, behavior plasticity, autoimmune diseases, neurodegenerative and psychological disorders, addiction etc. has considerably increased in the market. In 2017, cancer is the major revenue-generating segment in the global epigenetics market because the reported evidence that epigenetic modifications have a considerable effect on cancer development and therefore management. Non-oncology segment of epigenetics market comprises metabolic diseases, infectious diseases, cardiovascular diseases, and others. Metabolic diseases was the largest share holding sub-segment in the year 2014 at over 32.0% due to the high impact of high-fat diet on DNA modifications and epigenetic regulation of metabolism.

However, the cardiovascular disorders segment is expected to be the fastest growing segment over the forecast period owing to the emergence of technologies such as microRNA modifications in diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disorders. Other factors such as increase in prevalence of different forms of cancer, strong product pipeline and higher number of unmet needs are fueling the growth epigenetics in cancer.

Epigenetics Market

Based on the technology types, the global epigenetics market is segmented as follows:

  • DNA Methylation
  • Histone Modification
  • Other Techniques 

Epigenetics is the study of modification in gene expression that does not involve changes to the genetic code. The epigenetics market will grow significantly over the forecast period owing to its robustness. Furthermore, increasing applicability of epigenetics in targeted therapy and personalized medicine would influence the market growth over the forecast period. DNA methylation, non-coding RNA associated gene silencing and histone modification play an essential role in initiating and sustaining epigenetic changes. The introduction of technological advancement such as Methylation Sensitive PCR (MSP) and rapid adoption of these products to improve diagnostics efficiency are some factors attributing for its largest share. It is observed that the demand for DNA methylation technique was the highest in market as it is a rapid and accurate technique for whole genome analysis. DNA methylation technique is used in the preparation of DNA for methylation analysis; it includes the selection of methylated DNA, enzymatic compartmentalization by methylation sensitive enzymes, and biochemical treatment of the DNA. DNA methylation technique has great potential in understanding the functional mechanisms in complex disease and personalized drug development. Moreover, methylation plays a fundamental role in cell divisions, differentiation, apoptosis, growth factor response, detoxification, metastasis etc. that have promoted huge advances in the early detection of cancer.
