최근 유전자분석은 기술 진보와 대중화를 통해 소비자가 의료기관을 거치지 않고 직접 구매할 수 있는 소비자의뢰 유전자검사 시장으로까지 확대되고 있지만, 2016년부터 허용된 우리나라의 소비자의뢰 유전자검사 시장은 여전히 도입기에 머물러 있는 상태이다. 본 연구의 목적은 소비자의뢰 유전자검사 시장 및 서비스 확대를 위하여 구매의도 및 목적에 영향을 미치는 요인들을 밝혀보고자 하는 것이다. 이를 위해 일반국민을 대상으로 설문조사를 실시하였고, 이를 바탕으로 이항 및 다항로짓 회귀모형을 적용하여 분석을 시도하였다. 그 결과, 구매의도에 유의한 영향 미치는 변수로는 사용경험에 기반을 둔 지식, 치료 유익에 대한 긍정적 태도, 개인의 건강상태 등으로 나타났다. 구매목적은 연령대에 따라 차이가 존재하지만 치료목적이 더욱 두드러진 것으로 파악되었다. 특히, 검사결과에 대한 소비자만족도 향상을 통해 재구매 또는 효과적인 치료 및 건강관리와 연계할 수 있는 서비스의 개발이 필요하다. 본 연구는 향후 소비자의뢰 유전자검사 제품 개발의 전략적 방향설정에 기여할 것으로 기대된다.
