Prevention of cancer is the most critical aspect under scrutiny worldwide primarily focussing in culminating various efforts in reducing healthcare burden and mortality rate associated with the disease. Healthcare agencies worldwide are being proactive in raising public health awareness which results in early cancer screening and thorough diagnosis. According to the research citings brought forward by World Health Organization (WHO) approximately 30 to 50% cancer cases can be prevented by avoiding risk factors and effective implementation of guidelines pertaining to cancer diagnosis. Researchers throughout the globe hold opinion that many cancer types are curable if diagnosed at an early stage.
Detection of cancer is a multi-step approach, patients often visit oncologists due to repeated occurrence of symptoms. Usually physicians conduct clinical examination and recommend the patients to undergo different types of imaging such as CT scan, MRI, endoscopy, ultrasound etc., Molecular diagnostics are performed to further elucidate the findings encountered in imaging technology regarding cancer. Final confirmation of cancer is given by pathologist after conducting thorough biopsy of tumor cells under investigation.
Oncomine Dx target test (Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc.,) is the first FDA approved CE-IVD solid tumor biomarker test employing next generation sequencing (NGS) technique to identify cancer biomarkers such as EGFR, KRAS, BRAF, ROS1, ALK and NRAS etc. Panther® system (Hologic, Inc.) is an integrated moelcualr diagnsotc kit is available at reduced cost to expedite the screening of human papilloma virus (HPV) which is the major risk factor associated with cervical cancer. GE Healthcare currently possess comprehensive breast cancer diagnostic portfolio such as Automated Breast Ultrasound, 2D and 3D Mammography, MRI, CT and PET/CT. Siemens Healthineers has recently signed an agreement with ScreenPoint Medical to create an artificial intelligence (AI) based applications for the detection of breast cancer.
The technology segment comprises of imaging, molecular diagnostics, biopsy and others. In 2018, the imaging technology spearheaded the segment owing to its popularity among oncologists worldwide as primary screening for cancer diagnosis. Imaging modalities such as MRI and CT scans are widely employed on account of its inherent features such as non-invasive, quick and pain free preliminary screening for cancer diagnosis. Molecular diagnostics are anticipated to be the fastest growing segment owing to technological advancement in next generation sequencing and cancer biomarkers for early identification of different types of cancers.
The application segment is categorized by different cancer types such as breast cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer, colorectal cancer, skin cancer and others. Other cancers are currently dominating the application segment owing to rising public health awareness and proactive initiatives adopted by government healthcare agencies to promote early detection and curbing the mortality rate associated with cancer worldwide. Lung cancer is anticipated to grow at a faster pace during the forecast period owing to constant rise in tobacco consumption and rise in air pollution at an alarming rate.
The global cancer diagnostics market is spread across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa regions. In the present scenario North America is leading the regional segment for global cancer diagnostics market. According to the latest research citings presented by American Cancer Society (ACS) in 2019, approximately 1.7 million new cancer cases are anticipated to be diagnosed. It is expected that in 2019, around 606,880 Americans will die due to cancer. The key factors driving the cancer diagnostics market growth in the region are domicile of market leaders such as Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc., Hologic, Inc., Qiagen, GE Healthcare and Danaher Corporation. Europe trails behind in the second position owing to the rising prevalence of cancer and strategic collaboration between academic institutes and medical device manufacturers to launch new technology pertaining to cancer diagnostics. Asia Pacific is expected to exhibit rampant growth during the forecast period on account of constant rise in medical tourism and developing healthcare infrastructure.
