Epigenetics is an innovative field dealing with identifying and monitoring, the phenotypic changes in genes due to changes in the chromosomes, wherein the DNA sequence is not been affected. This field is generally implicated in the study of cancer, although other applications are expanding. Rising institutional and governmental collabration, and funding for development of new methods for disease diagnosis and treatment, are some of the factors anticipated to increase the demand for epignetics and hence driving the growth of the market. For instance, in February 2016, the University of Southampton and University Hospitals Southampton NHS Foundation Trust (UK) received USD 1.57 million (GBP 1 million) for genetics and genomics research related to cancer and infectious diseases.

Rising prevalnce of cancer globally along with growing applications epigenetics in non-oncology diseaes are some of the major factor driving the growth of the global epigentics market. According to WHO estimates, people suffering from cancer is expected to increase to 19.3 million by 2025 from 14.1 million in 2012. According to the American Cancer Society, in the U.S., the number of new cancer cases increased to 1,688,780 in 2017 from 1,685,210 in 2016.
