The Global Market for Epigenetics to 2025: Size, Share & Trends Analysis by Technology, Application and Product -

The "Epigenetics Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Technology, By Application (Oncology, Non-oncology), By Product (Reagents, Instruments, Enzyme, Kits, Services), And Segment Forecasts, 2018 - 2025" report has been added to's offering.

The global epigenetics market size is expected to reach USD 22.05 billion by 2025, progressing at a CAGR of 19.7% during the forecast period. The growing prevalence of cancer and other diseases worldwide with an epigenetic modification base is expected to drive the market during the forecast period.

Diagnostic companies are coming up with new products such as antibodies specific for detection of modifications and new upgraded kits for easy and efficient detection of biomarkers. This is estimated to attract pharmaceutical companies to collaborate for development of therapeutic drugs, which will work in favor of the market.

The presence of pipeline drugs and their expected commercialization is anticipated to boost the growth of the market. For instance, Ramucirumab (Cyramza) by Eli Lilly and Company was approved by FDA for use in combination with Folfiri for treatment of patients with metastatic colorectal cancer.

Technology advancements in the epigenetics industry are majorly focusing on detection of methylation markers related to cancer development. For instance, Epi proLung BL Reflex Assay by Epigenomics helps in diagnosis of lung cancer by determining methylation of SHOX2 biomarker gene.
