Biomarkers in Cancer Research 2010

Biomarkers in Cancer Research 2010
The Global Cancer Biomarkers Market will grow from $3.6 billion in 2007 to $6.3 billion in 2016.

Sep 21, 2010 - The global cancer biomarkers market for 2007 was estimated to be $3.6 billion and is expected to grow at a CAGR (Compounded Annual Growth Rate) of 6.3% to reach $6.3 billion by 2016.

This growth is primarily attributed to the rise in the number of biomarker tests in the cancer types such as cervical cancer, NSCLC (non-small cell lung cancer), breast cancer, gastric cancer, head cancer, colon cancer and many others that will be launched in the next few years. These will contribute significantly to market revenues. In addition, the support from regulatory bodies such as the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and various government initiatives will also drive up the investment in biomarkers, which will result in the discovery of improved tumor markers.

In the future, the growth of personalized medicines and the strong support from regulatory agencies such as the FDA will be the two major factors that will drive the demand for biomarkers, particularly in cancer research. Personalized medicines are gaining popularity due to their ability to provide customized treatment to patients based on their genetic as well as medical profile. Since biomarkers help in predicting patient response to a compound, personalized medicine are increasingly using biomarkers to identify the patient population set that is more likely to respond to a particular drug therapy. Personalized medicines are also increasingly being used in targeted cancer therapies. Thus, going forward, as personalized medicines gain more importance and popularity, the demand for biomarkers is also expected to increase.
