Pharmacogenomics Market By Technology (Microarray, Sequencing, Polymerase Chain Reaction), By Application (Oncology, Cardiology, Pain Management, Neurological Disorders) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2016 - 2024

Pharmacogenomics refers to the study of the human genetic make-up and corresponding tailoring of the drug treatment. Each individual response to the drug varies according to the genetic composition. To address such variations, it is necessary to study how the drug processing is affected by the genes. Precise genetic testing helps in determining targeted drug therapies and streamline the treatment protocol to improve therapeutic results. Pharmacogenomics has various therapeutic applications such as oncology, cardiology, pain management, neurological disorder, etc. Thus, through further advancements in this field, the goal is to shift towards preventing, rather than reacting; therefore, optimizing drug therapy, enhancing drug safety, increasing patient compliance and further reducing healthcare cost.

Pharmacogenomics Market

Based on the type of Therapeutic application, the global pharmacogenomics market is segmented as follows:

  • Oncology
  • Cardiology
  • Psychiatry
  • Infectious Diseases
  • Pain Management
  • Neurological Disorders
  • Others

Oncology, psychiatry, and infectious diseases are the three leading therapeutic areas that are benefited from pharmacogenomics. With help of pharmacogenomics studies, there is a paradigm shift in respective treatments, focusing on the personalized therapeutics. Oncology dominates the therapeutic applications in the pharmacogenomics market. Pharmacogenomics studies help cancer treatment by making selective decision of the drug, by anticipating the drug response, efficacy, safety profile, toxicity within chemotherapeutic agents and targeted immune biologics agents. Since the past few years, there has been an increase in clinical adoption of psychiatric pharmacogenomics testing. Due to cost effectiveness of this testing, it would be of help in near future to select psychotropic drug, its dosing and avoid further side effects according to the need of the patient. Pharmacogenomics is being used to study the genome of both the host and pathogen. The study of pathogen genome used in identification of the antigen, determine microbial resistance and further help in designing vaccine. Therefore, pharmacogenomics has the potential to revolutionize the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of infectious diseases.

Pharmacogenomics Market

Based on the type of technology, the global pharmacogenomics Market is segmented as follows:

  • Microarray
  • Sequencing
    • Sanger Sequencing
    • Pyrosequencing
    • Next-Generation Sequencing
  • Polymerase Chain Reaction
  • Other Technologies
    • Mass Spectrometry
    • Electrophoresis

DNA sequencing is technique used to determine the sequence of nucleotide (Adenine, Guanine, Cytosine, and Thymine) in a particular region of DNA. With technological advancement, sequencing has gone through three generation which includes: First generation - Sanger sequencing and Gilbert sequencing; Second generation - pryrosequencing; Next generation – Illumina (Solexa). It has ability to read DNA template in real time without amplification providing accurate and precise sequencing data. Thus next generation sequencing dominates the pharmacogenomics market and is anticipated to further grow in the forecast period. PCR is another technology widely used to replicate DNA sequence in short duration of time. Real time PCR helps to provide comprehensive content and also helps in pharmacogenomics studies to give quick accurate result at lower cost. Microarray is another fast growing technology in the field of molecular biology and genetics. DNA microarray technique is used in pharmacogenomics to search and validate new therapeutic targets, to understand the metabolic pathways, mechanism of action, and unwanted secondary effects. Mass spectrometry is a high throughput technology used for detection of genotyping, thus help in understanding how the drug interact with the patient. It is a quick process and less expensive and is used for of drug monitoring, thus its market is anticipated to grow in future.

Pharmacogenomics Market

For the purpose of this study, the global pharmacogenomics market is geographically categorized into:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Latin America (LATAM)
  • Middle East and Africa (MEA)

Pharmacogenomics Market

At present, North America dominates the pharmacogenomics market followed by Europe. In developed countries, with advancement in research and development, the goal is to shift towards preventing, rather than reacting, optimizing the drug therapy, enhancing drug safety, increasing patient compliance and further reducing healthcare cost. Personalized medicine emphasize on the paradigm shift in medicine from reaction to prevention. Asia Pacific is expected to be the most attractive regional market in the global pharmacogenomics market and promises extensive growth during the forecast period.
