Epigenetics Market

Epigenetics Market is Estimated To Witness Robust Growth Owing To Increasing Adoption of Epigenetics Techniques in Disease Diagnostics and Treatment

The Epigenetics Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 14.80 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 1.0% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:
Epigenetics involves changes in gene activity and expression that occurs without any changes in the DNA sequence. Epigenetic techniques help in understanding cell differentiation and development. These techniques are used in cancer, developmental biology, immunology and neurobiology research. They also help in analyzing pathogenicity of diseases and identifying new drug targets.

Market key trends:
The increasing adoption of epigenetics techniques in disease diagnostics and treatment is one of the key trends driving the growth of epigenetics market. Epigenetic markers help in early cancer detection. They also aid in developing epigenetic drugs for precision medicine. Various companies are investing in development of epigenetic drugs for cancers and other chronic diseases. For instance, Active Motif, Inc. offers epigenetic research tools and reagents for studying of histone modifications, chromatin structure & non-coding RNA. Their products help in understanding epigenetic mechanisms of diseases.

Porters Analysis
Threat of new entrants: The threat of new entrants is moderate as the Global Epigenetics Market requires huge R&D investments and regulatory approvals.

Bargaining power of buyers: The bargaining power of buyers is high due to the presence of many global companies providing epigenetics products and solutions.

Bargaining power of suppliers: The bargaining power of suppliers is moderate due to the availability of substitute raw materials and reagents.

Threat of new substitutes: The threat of new substitutes is high due to the availability of alternative techniques like DNA methylation and histone modification analysis.

Competitive rivalry: High due to the presence of global and local players.

SWOT Analysis
