Cancer Diagnostics Market By Test Type (Digital Pathology, Genomic Testing, Cancer Biomarker Tests, Imaging, Endoscopy, Biopsy, Others), By Disease Condition (Breast Cancer, Lung Cancer, Prostate Cancer, Blood Cancer, Colorectal Cancer, Ovarian Cancer, Liver Cancer, Other Cancers) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

Industry Outlook

The global cancer diagnostics market to reach US$ 115.3 Bn in 2026 growing at compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.1% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. The prime factors driving the global cancer diagnostics market is the rising prevalence of cancer worldwide. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), cancer accounted for the second leading cause of mortality, claiming to 8.8 million deaths in 2015 globally. The National Cancer Institute estimated around 1,685,210 new cancer cases in 2016 in the United States. As per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), cancer cases anticipated to increase by 2 million each year by 2020. Such continuous rise in prevalence of cancer would propel the demand for cancer diagnostics ensuring persistent remunerative growth across the forecast period. Advancements in omics technologies, imaging techniques, surge in government funding for cancer research, growing healthcare expenditure and demand for personalized medicines would further propel cancer diagnostics market during the forecast period. Development in genomics and next generation sequencing technique have revolutionized cancer diagnostics and cancer management by analysing multiple biomarker and mutations for early cancer treatment regimes. Development in radiology techniques also known radiomics have benefitting effects of cancer diagnostics market. For instance, radiological imaging are non-invasive in nature and provides 3D picture of solid tumor unlike conventional biopsies and can be performed multiple time with any adverse effects on the body. Development of technologically advanced mammography, PET and SPECT scan, and other imaging modalities for cancer detection have positively impacted the cancer detection accuracy and projected to contribute substantial market revenue during the forecast period.

Advent of Cancer Biomarker Technique to Drive the Market during the Forecast Period

In 2017, imaging segment held the largest share in the global cancer diagnostics market. Imaging techniques are the usually the first type of test carried out for any cancer diagnostics along with number of genomics and laboratory tests. Advancements in the medical devices market space have positively impacted the growth of imaging segment in cancer diagnostics owing to accurate results, better tumor outlook, non-invasiveness and quick solutions. Biomarkers have proved fruitful for diagnosis, monitoring and predicting the therapeutic treatment and its efficacy. For instance, the widespread application of prostate specific antigen (PSA) and BRCA gene in the screening of prostate cancer and breast cancer respectively have led to the discovery studies for different types of cancer as well. For example, in the near future a serum or urine test may derive clinical decisions in every phase of cancer. Thus complementing and substituting the current invasive techniques.

North America Held Lion’s Share in Cancer Diagnostics Market

North America being the spearhead in the cancer research have emerged as the leading market in cancer diagnostics market, while Asia Pacific is heading towards being the hub for oncology research due to growing contract research organizations and increased investments from industry giants. Hence, Asia Pacific is projected to proliferate rapidly during the forecast period. Huge investment by government research institutes in discovery of novel cancer diagnostic techniques have boosted the growth in various cancer detection techniques. U.S. have highly supported the development of novel cancer biomarker tests due to its accuracy in early detection of cancer. For instance, Mammaprint is a gene expression-based biomarker that predicts the recurrence of breast cancer after chemotherapy. Asia Pacific is holds a high potential in the cancer diagnostics market due to high target population in the region. Developing healthcare infrastructure, availability of sophisticated imaging center in Japan, China, Australia and India will further drive the market in the region.
