According to this report the global nucleic acid amplification, detection, and diagnostics market is expected to reach US$ 38,162.68 million by 2027 from US$ 14,014.59 million in 2019. The market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 13.4% from 2020 to 2027. The report highlights trends prevailing in the global nucleic acid amplification, detection, and diagnostics market and the factors driving market along with those that act as hindrances. Based on nucleic acid, the global nucleic acid amplification, detection, and diagnostics market is segmented into deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and ribonucleic acid (RNA).

The emergence of Coronavirus is expected to have positive impact on the market growth. As nucleic acid related diagnostic technologies offer superior outcomes, majority of the market players are focusing on the product development equipped with nucleic acid tests. However, implementation of physical distancing policies and total shut down of businesses in order to prevent the viral infection disrupted the supply chain operations, which deterred the market growth by certain extent.
