Marker-assisted selection is estimated to be the most widely used process of molecular breeding.

Marker-assisted selection is the most widely adopted process in molecular breeding by key breeding entities, majorly for crop applications. Cost and time efficiency are the major factors attributing to the increasing adoption of this technique over traditional methods. Also, among the services offered by key players, marker-assisted selection witnessed higher demand as a result of its simplicity and accuracy in comparison to traditional methods.

Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) segment is projected to be the fastest-growing during the forecast period.

The SNP segment is projected to register the highest growth rate from 2018 to 2023. SNP provides the simplest form of molecular markers as a single nucleotide base. They are abundant, ubiquitous, and amenable to high- and ultra-high-throughput automation. Owing to the high accuracy and higher number of loci with SNP in comparison to SSRs, companies have been using SNPs for molecular breeding services. As per inputs from industry experts, the adoption of SNPs is expected to increase until the introduction of a better molecular marker. Even in case of a new marker discovery, SNPs would still be the most widely used marker during the forecast period, taking into account the high possible prices of the new markers.
