[150 Pages Report] Molecular Cytogenetics Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.13% during the forecasting period (2022-2029).

Molecular cytogenetics is the study of chromosomes. Molecular cytogenetics helps in disease pathogenesis, 3D organization of the human genome, nature of inherited syndromes, and genetic anomalies such as cancer, sickle cell anemia, cystic fibrosis, Down’s syndrome, and others. Cytogenetics is an important technique for the development of targeted cancer treatment. Molecular Cytogenetics consists of a wide range of techniques such as comparative genomic hybridization (CGH), fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), and karyotyping. Due to continuous technological advancements in cytogenetic and, mapping techniques of human genome researchers can look into the disease-causing mechanism at a genomic as well as cellular level as well get insights about the transmittance of diseases from child to parents.

Market Dynamics

The market is driven by a high incidence of genetic disorders and cancer, a growing focus on targeted cancer treatment, an increase in the geriatric population, and technological advancements.

Continuous rise in cancer cases globally is boosting the need for targeted cancer treatment and the development of advanced technologies for the identification and treatment of cancer at the genomic level. According to Cancer Research UK, there were 17 million new cases of cancer worldwide in 2018 and 9.6 million deaths. FISH and CGH are recognized cytogenetic techniques that provide information about cancer-related molecular signatures — these methods aid in gaining insights on cancer progression.

The high cost of advanced instruments, unfavorable reimbursement scenario, lack of skilled persons to handle genomic tools, and high expense associated with maintenance and handling of advanced techniques are going to restrain the market in the forecast period.

Market Segmentation

The global molecular cytogenetics market can be segmented by product as Kits and Reagents, Instruments, Consumables, and Software & Services, by technique Comparative Genomic Hybridization, Fluorescence in Situ Hybridization (FISH), Karyotyping and Others, by application as Genetic Disorders, Oncology, Targeted Drug Therapy, and Others and by end-user as Clinical & Research Laboratories, Academic Research Institutes, Hospitals & Pathology Laboratories, Pharmaceutical, and Biotechnology Companies and Others.

FISH is expected to account for the largest market share over the period of forecast. FISH is a powerful diagnostic and discovery tool for identifying the genomic status of oncology tissues. FISH involves the use of fluorescence probes to detect specific gene sequences within chromosomes and can be used to detect different kinds of mutations such as gene amplification, deletions, and translocations. Even the viral sequences can be detected. FISH has greatly expanded the capabilities of cytogenetics and pathology laboratories through its high sensitivity, specificity, and rapid turnover with high efficiency of hybridization and detection. Material for FISH can be processed in 4–24h, and the analysis of 1000–2000 cells accomplished in 15–45 min, enabling the information on the cytogenetic pattern of tumor cells to be achieved within a sufficient time frame for use in treatment strategies.

Geographical Share

Geographically, the global molecular cytogenetics market is divided into North America, Europe, South America, Asia-Pacific, and the Middle East and Africa.

North America is expected to hold the largest market share in the period of forecast, due to a rise in cancer and other genetic diseases. The rise in the geriatric population also plays a major role in driving the North American market. Mental retardation can also be diagnosed and treated at the molecular level with the help of cytogenetic analysis. Mental retardation (MR) affects more than 300,000 Canadians with a life-long severe disability. The cause of most mental retardation remains unknown, but abnormalities of the chromosomes, the packages of genes within cells, are the most frequently recognized cause. Children with MR of unknown cause may be subjected to repeated medical testing to determine the cause, and their families often find it difficult to obtain appropriate educational or social support. The Canadian Molecular Cytogenetics Platform is an infrastructural partnership of 13 major research facilities. The platform includes a system for the collection of clinical research data and specimens from 18 centers in 7 provinces.
