Major companies such as Ancestry and 23andMe have been investing a significant sum of capital to develop advanced and innovative superior and excellent direct-to-consumer genetic testing and other related solutions.

Moreover, the growth in genetic ancestry testing is also expected to play a major and imperative role in the market growth, during the forecast period. These trends are expected to have a positive impact on the market, in the coming years.

A rise in genetic ancestry testing

Genetic ancestry testing is defined as a way for an individual to learn more about his family’s genealogy or want to go beyond data collection from historical documentation. There has been a surge in the demand for ancestry testing, with the use of cheek swabs or saliva DNA test kits, especially in the regions like Europe and North America. According to the data given by the MIT Institute and Technology, more than 26 million customers had added their respective DNA to four major health databases and commercial ancestry.

Moreover, according to Ancestry and 23andMe, two of the major players in the market, the companies have now a collection of some of the world’s biggest collections of human DNAs. With the affordable pricing of around US$59, these DNA tests offer a plethora of entertainment, a major chance of discovering family and ancestry secrets, such as estranged siblings. Ancestry also claimed that they had registered a record Thanksgiving sale in November 2018 and sold a total number of test kits at around 14 million.


Moreover, other companies are also making significant developments in the market. For instance, Gene By Gene, one of the major firms in the market, had stated that its family tree DNA ancestry database contains approx. 2 million people. Another company, known as MyHeritage, a major Israeli firm, had stated that their database has around 2.5 million profiles.

Moreover, the growth in direct-to-consumer DNA testing is also expected to have a major impact on the market. According to several official figures, there had been an expectation of sales of around 100 million kits by the year 2021. A plethora of companies has been providing DNA testing services to their customers, in the past few years.

For instance, in December 2020, MyHeritage, a major global service for identifying your past and future company, announced the launch of genetic groups. The genetic groups would be able to identify and find ancestral origins with high-resolution data of around 2100 geographic regions. This development is expected to enhance the company’s market share, in the coming years.

Other players are also making significant developments in the market. In January 2021, myDNA, a major Australian genomics company, announced a merger with FamilyTreeDNA, a US-based consumer DNA test company, and with Gene By Gene, the parent company of FamilyTreeDNA.

The innovative merger of these companies is expected to be a major development for the market, as the companies would aim to focus on the enhancement of a scientific foundation for personalized and actionable insights. Asia Pacific region is expected to have a major share in the market, due to the rise in the number of start-ups and increasing excitement about ancestral DNA testing.
