This study intends to analyse diverse aspects of the global cancer biomarkers market. The insights offered in this report are expected to aid in market growth examination over the forecast timeline.
Market Analysis in Brief
The cancer biomarkers market has indexed significant growth in recent years and is expected to continue to expand in the coming years. Biomarkers are molecules that indicate the presence of cancer in the body and can be used for early detection, diagnosis, and cancer monitoring applications. This market includes several types of biomarkers, such as genetic, proteomic, and glycomic biomarkers. The increasing incidence of cancers, and the growing demand for personalized medicine are elements driving the growth of this global market. However, inflated costs associated with biomarker tests as well as the lack of standardization in biomarker development and validation are some of the challenges faced by this market. Overall, the cancer biomarkers industry is expected to register continued growth as R&D initiatives continue to advance this field further.
Key Report Findings
Increasing Prevalence of Cancers, Technological Advancements, and Higher Healthcare Investments
According to the WHO, cancer is one of the leading causes of death globally, accounting for about 9.6 million deaths in 2018. This growing burden of cancer has led to an increase in the demand for precise and efficient diagnostic tools. Additionally, ongoing developments in technology have led to the discovery of novel biomarkers which in turn has helped improve the accuracy and treatment of cancer. Advance in geonomics and proteomics have allowed the identification of specific genetic and protein biomarkers associated with different forms of cancer, which has subsequently led to the development of targeted and personalized therapies.
A study by Fairfield Market Research has found that the global cancer biomarkers market is expected to achieve a valuation of over US$26 Bn by 2025, growing at a favourable CAGR over the same timeline. In recent years, there has been a steady increase in investments toward healthcare, be it from governmental bodies and private entities, leading to the augmenting of healthcare infrastructure and more R&D initiatives. Factors such as these are all expected to have a positive influence on the growth trajectory of the global cancer biomarkers industry.
Greater Demand for Non-invasive Tools
As a less painful, non-invasive alternative to traditional diagnostic procedures such as biopsies, there has been a steady increase in the demand for non-invasive diagnostic tools. Moreover, there has been a steady increase in awareness concerning the several types of cancer and methods by which it can be detected at an early stage. Cancer biomarkers play a crucial role in the detection and diagnosis of cancer. These are also elements that are expected to significantly boost growth prospects for the various players engaged in the global cancer biomarkers market in the future.
High Costs, Regulatory Hurdles, and Lack of Standardization
The costs associated with biomarker testing are high, depending on the type of biomarker and diagnostic technique used. This can make it difficult for patients to access these diagnostic tools, specifically in low- to middle-income countries. Moreover, there are many regulatory hurdles and lengthy approval processes involved in the development of cancer biomarkers. Additionally, there is a lack of standardization in the use of cancer biomarkers, including the diagnostic techniques used and the selection of biomarkers. This can hinder the reproducibility and comparability of results. Factors such as these are slated to have a negative impact on the growth of the global cancer biomarkers market.
Growth Opportunities Across Regions
North America to Remain the Regional Frontrunner
Europe and the Asia Pacific regions are expected to account for a significant share of the global cancer biomarkers market owing to factors such as the availability of diagnostic technologies, booming healthcare infrastructure, growing awareness about early cancer detection and diagnostic techniques. However, North America is expected to remain the regional frontrunner in the market over the forecast period. This can be attributed to the significant presence of established industry players and healthcare infrastructure in the region, as well as increasing R&D initiatives, and the increasing prevalence of cancer.
Key Market Players – Cancer Biomarkers Landscape
Some of the key companies in the market include Roche Diagnostics, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Abbott Laboratories, Illumina Inc., and Qiagen N.V. Key players in the cancer biomarkers market have been involved in new product launches and are implementing other growth strategies such as collaborations, and acquisitions to strengthen their position.

Considering the volatility of business today, traditional approaches to strategizing a game plan can be unfruitful if not detrimental. True ambiguity is no way to determine a forecast. A myriad of predetermined factors must be accounted for such as the degree of risk involved, the magnitude of circumstances, as well as conditions or consequences that are not known or unpredictable. To circumvent binary views that cast uncertainty, the application of market research intelligence to strategically posture, move, and enable actionable outcomes is necessary.Read more
