Demand for Liquid Biopsies will Drive Cancer Diagnostics Market

The global cancer diagnostics market is expected to post impressive growth through 2021, driven by rising cases of cancer registered worldwide. Launch of advanced technology, rising awareness regarding the importance of early diagnosis of cancer, and public and private sector initiatives undertaken for spreading the awareness about cancer are the key factors driving cancer diagnostics market.

According to the study, the market is expected to exceed the mark of US$ 47.62 Bn by 2021 due to the rising cancer cases, especially among geriatric population. The advancement in non-invasive techniques such as liquid biopsy and preference of it among cancer specialists are the chief factor for improved demand of cancer diagnostics market. Furthermore, increasing demand for technically advanced liquid biopsy products for cancers such as breast cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer and other cancer diseases, for better precision and accuracy, is anticipated to fuel the cancer diagnostic market demand.

Oncologists across major regions such as UK, United States, China and Japan are inclined towards using liquid biopsy for cancer diagnosis and treatment aiding the growth of market. Various cancer research institutes are being provided with high funding to develop non-invasive technologies for the patients. For instance, according to National Institute of Health, FDA funded National Cancer Institute of United States with US$ 6.45 billion for cancer research and development in cancer diagnostic development.

“Rising cases of lung cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer and others have necessitated development in cancer diagnostics and use of advanced technologies such as liquid biopsy for breast cancer. Recent developments are aiding the growth of the market,” remarks the FMI analyst.
