Increase in the number of cancer cases and the rise in geriatric population are the major factors which are attributing for the growth of the Cancer Diagnostics market globally. As per the WHO statistics, cancer accounts for 13% of deaths globally every year, moreover, 70% increase in cancer incidences is anticipated over the next couple of decades and global geriatric population is anticipated to nearly double from 12% to 22% from 2015 to 2022. Furthermore, increase in the emergence of new technologies like biomarkers and point of care testing, inclination towards advanced less-painful and way more efficient tests from conventional tests, improved healthcare expenditure, growing awareness, and increased government support are the few more factors which are boosting the growth of the Cancer Diagnostics market globally. However, stringent regulatory framework, lack of universal health coverage, expensive diagnostic procedures, prolonged time of approvals for product launching and cost containment measures are the few factors restraining the growth of Cancer Diagnostics market globally.
Cancer is a complex disease that impacts every patient differently. Comprehensive and personalized treatment starts with an accurate, thorough diagnosis that includes radiology, pathology, genetics and advanced genomic testing. Sophisticated tests and procedures are used to measure the stage and progression of the disease and identify the tumor's type, size, and location.
Cancer diagnosis begins with a thorough physical exam and a complete medical history. Laboratory studies are performed to detect abnormalities that may indicate cancer. When a tumor is suspected, imaging tests help doctors to determine cancer's location and size. To confirm the diagnosis of most cancers, a biopsy needs to be performed in which a tissue sample is removed from the suspected tumor and studied under a microscope to check for cancer cells. If the diagnosis is positive (cancer is present), other tests are performed to provide specific information about cancer. If the initial diagnosis is positive for cancer and symptoms persist, further tests may be needed and the further treatment is started.
Imaging Test is expected to dominate the Cancer Diagnostics Market
The most commonly used screening test for cancer is diagnostic imaging tests. The different kinds of imaging techniques for cancer detection are Imaging (Radiology) Tests for Cancer, CT Scans, MRI, Nuclear Medicine Scans, Ultrasound, Mammograms, X-rays and Other Radiographic Tests and are considered as the most reliable ones. Factors that are responsible for the growth of this segment include the increasing awareness about the early detection of cancer, the growing incidence of various types of cancer, and the increasing government initiatives and support. Mammograms are the most widely used tests to diagnose cancers. Mammography is the gold standard technique used to screen breast cancer, governments and other healthcare organizations around the world are taking initiatives to provide women, between the ages of 50 and 75, access to mammography screening. As per the Breastcancer.org, about one in eight US women (about 12.4%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of their lifetime. In 2018, an estimated 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer are anticipated to be diagnosed in women only in the United States, along with 63,960 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer.
The Asia Pacific is anticipated to grow rapidly in the global Cancer Diagnostics market
Asia-Pacific is expected to record a substantial growth over the forecast period, due to the existence of a large patient pool, availability of skilled professionals at a reasonable cost, and a distinct regulatory framework supporting accelerated product approvals and growing economic developments in countries like China and India and improved healthcare infrastructure. According to "India Against Cancer" report, total deaths due to cancer in 2018 in India are 7, 84,821 out of which 4,13,519 are Men and 3,71,302 are Women. Market players in the APAC region are involved in partnerships and agreements to enhance the market growth in Cancer Diagnostics. For instance, In April 2019, Halifax signs an exclusive agreement with Genecast to make Immunoscore® available in China. In June 2017, Agilent Technologies Inc. and Agendia, Inc. have entered into an agreement to expand their relationship to include the development of an RNA-Seq kit version of Agendia's currently marketed MammaPrint and BluePrint tests.
The global Cancer Diagnostics market is highly fragmented with the presence of a large number of local and international players. Key players are adopting different growth strategies to enhance their marke presence such as partnerships, agreements, collaborations, new product launches, geographical expansions, mergers, and acquisitions. For instance, In November 2018, Belgian molecular diagnostics company Biocartis Group entered into an agreement with AstraZeneca to obtain faster lung cancer molecular diagnostic biomarker results in Europe. In March 2019, NeoGenomics Laboratories, Inc. announced the launch of "Ventana PD-L1 (SP142) Assay" testing for tumor tissue testing in patients with a triple negative subtype of breast cancer. The test recently approved by the FDA for patients who might respond to "TECENTRIQ", an immune checkpoint inhibitor in combination with chemotherapy. In March 2017, Biodesix, Inc. and Progenetics LTD entered into an international agreement where Progenetics will market and distribute kits for Biodesix's GeneStrat® and VeriStrat® liquid biopsy tests for patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Both tests are now available for clinical use in Israel.
