Global Rare Disease Diagnostics Market to 2025: Market was Valued $45.18 Billion in 2017 and is Anticipated to Reach $86.15 Billion

Dublin, Nov. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Global Rare Disease Diagnostics Market: Focus on Genetic Diseases, Service Providers, Competitive Landscape, and Country – Analysis and Forecast, 2018-2025” report has been added to’s offering.

The global rare disease diagnostics market was valued $45.18 billion in 2017 and is anticipated to reach $86.15 billion by 2025

Factors such as high incidence of rare diseases, presence of large numbers of research and development facilities for rare diseases, significant number of rare disease registries, high diagnosis rare of rare diseases in countries of North America, and extensive investments in different therapeutic areas are driving the growth of the North America rare disease diagnostics market. However, the Asia Pacific region is expected to register the highest CAGR of 9.22% during the forecast period 2018-2025.

Rare diseases, also known as orphan diseases, have become a major health burden in the recent times. Comprising 6000-7000 life threatening diseases, rare diseases affect small percentage of the population. Every country has their own definition of rare disease based on the country’s population.

In the initial years, pharmaceutical companies were less interested in adopting them to develop treatments for such a small patient population, therefore the US FDA started giving orphan drug designations to the drug candidates intended to treat rare diseases. Orphan drug designations benefit companies from incentives for the development of these products until the marketing approval. The major challenge in rare diseases treatment is the lack of diagnosis, government policies, awareness and funding for R&D, along with long diagnostic delays.

The increasing patient pool for rare disease cancer, government funding to accelerate research in rare diseases, and interest of big pharmaceutical companies in manufacturing orphan drugs and orphan disease diagnostic devices are expected to be the major factors for the growth of the market.

Pharmaceutical giants such as Shire and Qiagen are investing in the R&D for the development of innovative and improved diagnostic devices and assays for rare disease. Rise in the awareness level among people on rare diseases is also expected to fuel the growth of the market. The rare disease has different definitions across different countries.
