A Huge Prize for Genomics ETF

The size of the healthcare market is gigantic. In America alone, it consumes 18% of GDP, equivalent to $3.6trn a year.1In other wealthy countries, the share is lower, around 10%, but it is increasing as populations age. Just as science is developing new gene therapies, so too the pandemic has made people comfortable with digitally-mediated care. That means healthcare is ripe for disruption. VanEck's Genomics ETF allows investors to gain exposure to this development.

Scientific advances promise to revolutionize healthcare. Not only does gene sequencing have huge potential for the treatment of cancer, old-age and in-borne diseases, but also AI is improving areas such as diagnostics. Turning to e-healthcare, digital technologies are being deployed to transform the productivity of healthcare and even for preventative wellness apps.

In the future, healthcare will be more proactive, predictive and personalized. A sharper focus on ‘wellness’ is designed to be predictive, for instance with wearable devices encouraging good habits while monitoring health. Meanwhile, enormous scientific advances are allowing treatment to be personalized for better outcomes.

Technology is shrinking costs. In genomics, newer technologies are cutting the costs of the latest treatments and making them more widely available. Turning to telemedicine, as people become more willing to speak with a doctor over the internet, so this too is reducing costs.
