"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"
A nucleic acid test (NAT), also known as nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT), is an innovative technique used for the detection of a specific nucleic acid, virus or bacteria that acts as a disease-causing pathogen from biological samples such as blood, tissues, urine, etc. The major three steps involved in the nucleic acid test are sample collection and nucleic acid (NA) extraction, target NA amplification, and target amplicon NA detection. The nucleic acid test includes an amplification step for the amplification of the genetic material. There are several techniques for amplification, including strand displacement assay (SDA), polymerase chain reaction (PCR), or transcription-mediated assay (TMA). New and innovative NAT testing platforms are being introduced in the market, which is further expected to augment the demand for nucleic acid testing in the global market from 2019-2026. For instance, a team of researchers from National University of Singapore (NUS) developed a portable, easy-to-use device for quick and accurate screening of diseases named as envision (enzyme-assisted nanocomplexes for visual identification of nucleic acids) in September 2018. This device is designed for the detection of a wide range of diseases, including emerging infectious diseases such as Zika, Ebola and others.
The increased demand for the nucleic acid test kits from blood transfusion centers and the blood banks are anticipated to positively impact the global nucleic acid testing market. Increase in demand for PCR kits and technological advancement in both research & health care industries are the major drivers of the global nucleic acid testing market. Also, increased prevalence of genetic diseases, cancer, and infectious diseases such as hepatitis, dengue, malaria, and others are expected to fuel the global nucleic acid testing market.

Recent industry developments such as partnerships, mergers, and acquisitions
North America followed by Europe, are the two largest markets for Nucleic Acid Testing (NAT) at present, and they are expected to account for a large proportion of the market in the forecast period as well. The increased investments in the diagnostics and research sectors combined with the increasing prevalence of infectious diseases are expected to favor the nucleic acid testing market in North America during the forecast period. Asia Pacific is expected to register a comparatively higher CAGR, owing to factors such as increasing awareness of the nucleic acid testing along with a shift of research institutes and contract research organizations from developed western countries to emerging countries in Asia Pacific.
