Global Preimplantation genetic diagnosis Market 2016: Industry Growth, Research, Future Outlook to 2022


Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a diagnostic technology used with an in-vitro fertilization (IVF) procedure for the genetic profiling of the embryo prior to implantation in the uterus. Preimplantation genetic diagnosis is intended for use in the selection of embryos without genetic disorders, thereby increasing the chances of the successful pregnancy, and for embryonic-sex selection. High prevalence of undiagnosed congenital disorders -at the early stage – has created an impending need for PGD testing. PGD is primarily used to diagnose severe disorders such as cancer and other genetic disorders in the embryos before commencing the IVF treatment.

Presently, the PGD market is witnessing impressive growth owing to the increasing rates of infertility and a large adoption of IVF technology worldwide. Another key factor driving the PGD market is rising fertility tourism, especially, in emerging economies. However, the high procedural cost, inadequate reimbursement policies and ethical considerations related to the embryo-based studies are key factors that limit the growth of the global PGD market.

Overcoming the lack of technological awareness, particularly in under-developed economies would be a major challenge for companies to sustain their growth in the global PGD market.The PGD market is segmented on the basis of technology, applications, end-users, PGD products and geography. Based on technology, the market is further segmented into polymerase chain reactions, fluorescence in-situ hybridization, next generation sequencing and comparative genomic hybridization. Based on applications, the market is segmented into, chromosomal abrasions, inheritable genetic disorders, gender identification, HLA typing and sex-linked disorders. Based on end-users, the market is segmented into hospitals/diagnostic centers, fertility clinics, and academic and research institutes. In accordance to the products used in PGD, the market is segmented in to instruments used, reagents, software and accessories (kits) used in the diagnostic tests.

Geographically, the global PGD Market is segmented across four regions namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. One of the key strategies adopted by the leading industry players is product launch. Companies such as Perkin Elmer are largely focusing on the production of PGD testing technologies such as GeneAmp 9700 PCR and FISH Systems. The companies profiled in this report include Abbott Laboratories, Inc., PerkinElmer, Inc., Quest Diagnostics, Inc., Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings, Illumina, Inc., Genesis genetics, Reprogenetics, LLC, Natera, Inc., GeneDx, Inc. and Rubicon Genomics, Inc.
