Biohacking refers to do-it-yourself (DIY) biology and experimentation with one’s own body. This includes self-tracking, optional implants, and other techniques for enhancement or optimization. Biohacking enables personalized health and provides insights into human biology and well-being.
Market key trends:
One of the major trends in the biohacking market is the rise of self-quantification and quantified self-movement. Self-quantification refers to tracking personal metrics like calories burned, sleep cycles, glucose levels etc. using wearable devices and tracking apps. Quantified self involves collecting data about oneself and using that data to gain insights and improve health and lifestyle. Many consumers are adopting self-tracking tools to gain more control over their health and wellness.
The global biohacking market can be segmented into DIY biohacking and do-it-yourself biohacking. DIY biohacking is currently dominating the market as it provides amateur biohackers access to a variety of medical devices, supplements as well as smart drugs which can help in tracking health metrics. DIY biohackers are also increasingly experimenting with biosensors, genetic engineering kits, and hormonal treatments which allow them to take control of their health and wellness.
The Global Biohacking Market Demand is expected to witness high growth, exhibiting a CAGR of 17% over the forecast period, due to increasing adoption of self-tracking tools and devices to monitor health and modify bodily functions.
North America is currently the fastest growing region in the biohacking market. This can be attributed to rising awareness about self-quantification and increasing R&D activities related to human enhancement in the US. Europe is another major region and is expected to witness significant growth due to growing interest of EU citizens in self-experimentation using DIY tools and kits.
Key players operating in the biohacking market are Thync Global Inc., Apple Inc., HVMN, Synbiota, MoodMetric, THE ODIN, and Fitbit, Inc. Thync Global Inc. is a leading player offering brain-stimulating headwear to help manage stress and focus.
