Cancer Biomarkers Market to Reach USD 48.20 billion by 2026; Advent of Personalized Medicine for Cancer Treatment will Add Impetus to Market

March 30, 2020 | Healthcare

The global cancer biomarkers market size is forecasted to reach USD 48.20 billion by 2026, owing to the increasing prevalence of cancer worldwide. Biomarkers are molecules that are extracted from a tumor in the body or any other specific part which indicates the presence of cancer. Biomarkers can detect cancer at an early stage and enables high-speed non-invasive diagnosis with the help of different proteomics and genomic tools. This information is presented in a recently published report by Fortune Business Insights™ titled, “Cancer Biomarkers Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Cancer Type (Breast Cancer, Lung Cancer, Colorectal Cancer, Prostate Cancer and Others), By Biomarker Type (PSA, HER-2, EGFR, KRAS and others), By End User (Pharmaceutical & Biotechnology Companies, Diagnostics & Research Laboratories, Hospitals & Specialty Clinics and Others), and Regional Forecast, 2019-2026.” According to this report, the value of the cancer biomarkers market was USD 18.94 billion in 2018 and is anticipated to exhibit 12.4% CAGR between 2019 to 2026.

Launch of New Assay for Detecting HER2 Biomarker by Roche to Drive Market

Roche launched a new assay for detecting the HER2 biomarker in gastric and breast cancer in May 2019. The inhibition and detection of HER2 (Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor-2) can help to manage aggressive cancer cases such as gastric and breast cancer more effectively.

Chief Executive Officer of Roche Diagnostics guarantees the commitment of the company towards personalized healthcare by providing critical information on gastric and breast cancer treatment options at a rapid pace. He says that the test has been launched in the Middle East and Africa, Latin America, Europe, and Asia Pacific and will soon be submitted to the US Food and Drug Administration for approvals. Such efforts are likely attracting high cancer biomarkers market revenue in the forecast period.
