Epigenomics refers to the analysis of modifications to the DNA and DNA related any other protein in the cell. Cancer which is considered as one of the most common condition has emerged as one of the major application area for epigenomics. This has initiated the introduction of many drugs based on epigenomics techniques in the market and have also encouraged many prominent players to carry clinical research either through strategic collaboration or public-private partnership models. The completion of the Human Genome Project and the growing focus towards personalized medicines have geared up the research for the development of therapies using epigenomics.

Using the concept of epigenetics, Canadian Cancer Trials Group is conducting research on HDAC inhibitor SB939 for treatment of prostate cancer. The emergence of epigenetics is expected to revolutionize the methods used for the treatment of cancer. Similarly, in January 2017, Illumina Inc., collaborated with Koninklijke Philips N.V., for analysis of genetic variation and developing integrated genomics solution for cancer. By developing modulators through methods such as DNA methylation, histone acetylation, histone methylation, and many other novel therapies can be made possible for cancer.

The increased funding for research in the field of epigenomics, new product launch, greater adoption of epigenomics methods based kits and microarray for diagnosis and increased in clinical trials to use epigenetics modulators to treat cancer are the primary reasons attributed for the growth in epigenomics market. 

Furthermore, the fast pacing shift toward personalized medicine as it patient specific is anticipated to accelerate the growth in global epigenomics market during the projected years. However, lack of skilled professional in emerging countries and stringent government regulations are factors that can hamper the growth in global epigenomics market.

Regional Analysis 

The global epigenomics market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa. The global epigenomics market is expected to have an exponential growth in North America in the forecast years owing to the huge R&D investment and introduction of new product into the market. In Europe growth in epigenomics market is estimated to propel by the end of 2025 due to the strategic collaborations and active government support for the development of novel therapy for cancer. In 2018, Boehringer Ingelheim International GmbH, a pharmaceutical company partnered with Epizyme Inc., for research and development of novel molecule inhibitors to treat cancer, which is further expected to fuel the epigenomics market in Europe.
