Rising numbers of assisted reproductive procedures such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) is Asia is the most prominent factor driving the market for preimplantation genetic diagnosis. This is, in essence, the result of factors such as the delayed age of conception among Asian women, the rising rate of infertility among the population, and the significantly expanding medical tourism industry in the region. Rising disposable incomes and increased awareness regarding the rising prevalence of a number of genetic disorders are also encouraging the Asian population to undertake costly diagnostic procedures such as PGD.
TMR analysts project that these factors will enable the Asia preimplantation genetic diagnosis market expansion at a healthy 6.8% CAGR from 2015 to 2023. The market is expected to rise from a valuation of US$16.0 mn in 2014 to US$28.8 mn by 2023.
Rising Preference for Single Gene Disorder Screening over Prenatal Diagnostic Testing to Drive Market
Preimplantation genetic diagnosis for the screening of aneuploidy held the largest share of 34.7% in the Asia PGD market in 2014. Liberal regulations pertaining to this area of diagnosis in most Asian countries is the major factor behind the high numbers of aneuploidy screening tests undertaken every year in the region. However, PGD for single gene disorder is projected to expand at the faster CAGR of 8.4% from the period between 2015 and 2023.
Increased preference of this diagnostic modality is encouraged by technological advancements and relatively high accuracy of results. Moreover, single gene disorder screening is more beneficial compared to conventional prenatal diagnostic testing in embryo, driving the market for PGD for single gene disorder.
Rising Numbers of Healthcare Facilities to Boost Asia PGD Market
Known to provide excellent medical services at highly economical rates as compared to developed regions, the healthcare industry in Asia has invited patients from world over. With continuous advancements in healthcare infrastructure, rising numbers of healthcare experts, and constantly improving diagnostic facilities, Asia is expected to be a major hub for the PGD market in the future. Many global vendors in the healthcare and diagnostics industry are extending their businesses in the region and the number of fertility clinics, hospitals, and diagnostic centers are constantly rising in the region.
Fertility clinics held a major share in the overall Asia PGD market in 2014, and are expected to exhibit a 5.9% CAGR from the period between 2015 and 2023. However, the segment of healthcare facilities is expected to expand at a much better 7.8% CAGR over the same period. The flourishing tourism industry in the region is leading to the establishment of an increasing number of IVF centers and healthcare facilities such as hospitals and diagnostic centers in the region.
Asia PGD Market to Witness Highest Traction in Southern Countries
In the next few years, the Asia PGD market is expected to witness the highest growth in Southern countries such as India and China. The high and rising rate of infertility in South Asian countries, rising disposable incomes, high percentage of women in the workforce, and availability of technologically advanced healthcare infrastructure will enable the region in presenting the most attractive growth opportunities for the Asia PGD market. Countries in Southern Asia will also benefit from the flourishing medical tourism industry during the period between 2015 and 2023.
Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is the inspection of an embryo in vitro in order to eliminate a genetic condition in case a high risk of that condition is known. PGD is an evolving technique that provides a practical alternative to prenatal diagnosis and termination of pregnancy for couples who are at substantial risk of transmitting a serious genetic disorder to their offspring. Growing incidence of infertility across the world is the major driver of the PGD market. Preimplantation genetic diagnosis plays an important role in the detection and determination of genetic disorders, sex-linked diseases, and chromosomal abnormalities in the embryo before IVF can be performed. Rising incidence of infertility coupled with growing awareness about IVF and PGD is the major factor driving the PGD market in Asia.
