Concise Analysis of the International Genetic Testing Market
M2 - Fri Feb 28, 8:15AM CST
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/8z6k4n/global_genetic) has announced the addition of the "Concise Analysis of the International Genetic Testing Market" report to their offering. Currently, DTC genetic testing is the buzz word in the Global Genetic Testing market. DTC genetic testing refers to genetic tests that are marketed directly to consumers through television, print advertisements, or the internet. This form of testing, which is also called at-home genetic testing, provides access to a person's genetic information without the involvement of the consumer's healthcare provider. The DTC test typically includes collecting a DNA sample at home, often by swabbing the inside lining of the cheek, and mailing the sample back to the laboratory. Consumers are notified of their results by e-mail, over the phone, or the results are posted online on the websites of the offering companies. DTC genetic tests are expected to have a positive impact on the growth of the market during the forecast period. According to the report, one of the main drivers in this market is the increase in the aging population worldwide. The increasing prevalence of diseases such as diabetes, obesity, and cancer among the elderly population is contributing to the growth of the market. Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in the market is the lack of a credible standard procedure to evaluate the analytic and clinical validity of genetic tests. Key Topics Covered: 1. Executive Summary 2. List of Abbreviations 3. Introduction 4. Market Research Methodology 5. Scope of the Report 6. Market Landscape 7. Geographical Segmentation 8. Key Leading Countries 9. Vendor Landscape 10. Buying Criteria 11. Market Growth Drivers 12. Drivers and their Impact 13. Market Challenges 14. Impact of Drivers and Challenges 15. Market Trends 16.
