Gene expression analysis is research dedicated towards functional genomics extending the application purview of studying genes and gene transcripts. Synthesizing functional gene products such as functional RNAs and protein species offers insights on how an intact organism survives when a particular gene goes missing. Growth in personalized medicine and technological developments are driving market growth. According to a data published by the Foley & Lardner LLP, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved 16 new personalized medicines in 2017. Moreover, the development of genomic databases and increased government funding towards genomics is fueling market growth.
However, the lack of skilled labor and the high cost of instruments may hamper market growth during the assessment period.

Regional Market Summary
Geographically, the Americas is anticipated to dominate the global gene expression analysis market owing to the increasing research activities and the rising popularity of gene expression tests. Additionally, the well-developed healthcare sector is anticipated to boost the American gene expression analysis market.
Asia-Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest growing region in the market due to the growing investment from governments in the field of genomics, and continuously developing economies. According to a report published by the International Journal of Social and Developmental Concerns in October 2017, in Malaysia, the growth of the public primary, as well as secondary care facilities, has decreased in the past few years, and it has not kept pace with the rapid urbanization. Thus, such factors restraint the growth of the market in this region. On the other hand, the Middle East & Africa has the least share of the market.
Europe is expected to hold the second largest position in the global gene expression analysis market. The market growth in this region is attributed to the availability of funds for research.
