Rising Numbers of IVF Procedures and Increased Awareness to Drive Asia Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis Market

Blog Description

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) refers to an ancillary technique to in-vitro fertilization (IVF) that is used for the detection of genetic or inheritable diseases before an embryo is implanted. Preimplantation genetic diagnosis can be performed for the screening of a large number of medical conditions such as Down’s syndrome and a variety of physiological abnormalities. The rising awareness among patients regarding the benefits of PGD techniques, coupled with the growing prevalence of genetic diseases among children, is leading to an increased demand for preimplantation diagnosis methods and IVF procedures. Studies have demonstrated the high rate of successful pregnancy when IVF procedures are combined with PGD screenings, a factor that has heightened the acceptance regarding PGD techniques in the global market.

Rising Numbers of IVF Procedures to Propel Asia Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis Market

Asia is the home to some of the world’s most prominent developing and populated countries. Major developing countries such as China, India, Vietnam, Israel, Singapore, and Indonesia offer vast growth opportunities for the PGD market, majorly owing to three factors: the rising awareness about genetic disorders, increased expenditure on healthcare, and the rising rate of infertility and the consequent rise in IVF procedures.

Strengthening economies and rising disposable incomes directly relate to increased expenditure on several aspects, one of which is healthcare. Combine to this the rising awareness regarding the increased prevalence of genetic disorders and the willingness of expectant parents to spend money for ensuring that their babies are not carriers of a genetic disorder, and the healthy growth prospects of the PGD market in Asia become obvious.
