Global DNA Methylation Market to Reach US$ 2.93 Billion by 2028, Propelled by Increasing Prevalence of Chronic Diseases

April 14, 2023 | Healthcare

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “DNA Methylation Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028," the global DNA methylation market size reached US$ 1.30 Billion in 2022. Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) methylation refers to a biological process in which a methyl group is added to the cytosine base of a DNA molecule. It is an epigenetic modification process that alters gene expression patterns without changing the underlying DNA sequence. It is analyzed through various technologies, such as polymerase chain reaction (PCR), microarray, bisulfite sequencing, immunoprecipitation (IP), and nanopore sequencing. DNA methylation is widely used for disease diagnosis and prognosis, prenatal screening, drug development, epigenetic research, and forensic analysis. It provides a deeper understanding of disease mechanisms and progression, which aids in early disease detection, improving clinical outcomes, minimizing complications, and enhancing patient satisfaction. 

DNA Methylation Market Trends:

The escalating prevalence of chronic diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, hypertension, arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, and cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), is one of the key factors driving the market growth. DNA methylation is widely used as a biomarker to identify epigenetic changes associated with certain conditions, thus allowing early disease detection, improving patient outcomes, and reducing healthcare costs. In addition to this, the rising geriatric population with high susceptibility to developing chronic conditions is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the increasing adoption of DNA methylation as a non-invasive diagnostic tool for monitoring diseases, which enhances patient comfort and reduces the risk of complications, is providing an impetus to the market growth. Additionally, the recent development of single-cell sequencing technology that allows fast, more accurate, and in-depth analysis of DNA methylation patterns is positively influencing the market growth. Moreover, the increasing applications of DNA methylation in prenatal screening to detect chromosomal abnormalities and identify various genetic disorders, such as down syndrome, muscular dystrophy, and cystic fibrosis, is facilitating the market growth. Other factors, including rising healthcare expenditure, the increasing utilization of DNA methylation to develop new plant varieties, extensive research and development (R&D) activities, and growing demand for precision medicine, are anticipated to drive the market growth. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market value is expected to reach US$ 2.93 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 14.60% during 2023-2028.
