Genotyping is the process of studying DNA sequence to determine genetic constitution in the genotypes of living organisms, such as humans, plants, animals, and microorganisms. Human genotyping helps in determining fatherhood or motherhood. Genotyping of micro-organisms, including viruses and bacteria, helps in prevention of spreading of pathogens by tracking down the origin of outbreak. Traditionally, genotyping was partial due to technological limitations, which means doctors and scientists were able to determine only small fraction of genotype. But, technological advancements in recent years present new avenues in the genotyping process by providing whole-genome genotyping.
The factors that drive the growth of the world genotyping market are decreasing prices of DNA sequencing, increasing incidence of genetic diseases, growing importance of SNP genotyping in drug development, awareness on personalized medicine, and increasing demand for genotyping of animal & plant livestock. However, ambiguity in the reimbursement for these products and a lack of trained professional are factors that restrain the growth of this market. Increasing application areas of genotyping and increasing investments by key manufacturers create opportunities in the market.
