Cancer Diagnostics Market

Technological advancements in various fields such as biopsy, imaging, biomarkers and endoscopy, rising prevalence of cancer, increase in government initiatives for creating awareness, rapidly increase in geriatric population, and growing government funding are key factors driving the growth of the cancer diagnostics market.

Timely detection of cancer requires suitable diagnostic tests to screen the immunosuppressed population which is at moderate risk of cancer, particularly for lung cancer, cervical cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer and melanoma. Growing awareness of early signs and symptoms of cancer among physicians and other healthcare professionals as well as among the general population supplements the growth of cancer diagnostics.

Inclusion of cancer screening tests in National Cancer Screening Programs is another major factor expected to fuel the demand for cancer diagnostics. Introduction of regular mammography into national cancer programs by major developed countries where the incidence of breast cancer is high that is leading towards increasing adoption of cancer diagnostics in developed region.

For instance, the U.S. government has included the National Mammography Program in its national cancer screening programs. The government of Australia is taking initiative by conducting 3 cancer screening programs such as the National Cervical Screening Program, BreastScreen Australia and the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program. Similarly, most of the countries in Europe are continuously adopting HPV DNA screening for cervical cancer as a part of national cervical cancer programs.

Short-term Negative Impact Likely Due to COVID-19

The cancer diagnostics market is expected to experience short-term negative growth owing to a reduction in the cancer diagnosis procedures and adoption rate in developed and emerging countries. COVID-19 has impacted the landscape of cancer diagnostics. This has affected demand in various fronts, from prevention to screening and diagnosis, palliative care, treatment, and patient follow-up, to logistics and supplies of cancer diagnostic tests kits and other essential commodities.

Nonetheless after a period of muted growth, the market is poised to recover as economies return to normalcy. As per FMI, the rising incidence of lung cancer is attributable for over 19% of sales in the market.
