EPO Biomarkers Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2016-2026 Overview
Erythropoietin is special type of protein biomarker, also known as a growth factor. It acts by the stimulating the bone marrow to manufacture red blood cells. There are five different types of erythropoietin biomarkers such as epoetin alfa, epoetin beta, epoetin zeta, epoetin theta and darbepoetin alfa.
Erythropoietin is mostly administered subcutaneously as an alternative to iron supplements. Erythropoietin used in human beings is also known as recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEPO). Commercially available rHuEPO has the same 165 amino acid sequence as available in naturally occurring hormone but the level of glycosylation in rHuEPO depends on the testing method used.
Growing global incidence of renal diseases and cancers is expected to create a marked increase in use of EPO biomarkers.
EPO Biomarkers Market: Drivers & Restraints
The prime drivers for the market include growing incidence of cancers and renal diseases. Changes in lifestyle and improper eating habits contribute to pancreatic and endocrine cancers, which often lead to severe anaemia, where external erythropoietin infusion is required. Other drivers for the EPO biomarker market is technological advancement in devising proprietary testing methods apart from tried and tested ones.
Restraints for the market include lack of availability of skilled labour and sufficient quality controlled testing laboratories in most countries in less developed regions. Insufficient R&D in identification of biomarkers due to adoption of cost cutting measures in European regions is expected to restrain proper quantitative assessment of drugs and their therapeutic efficacy in blood.
This could also hamper progress of ongoing clinical trials and proper stratification of patients.
EPO Biomarkers Market: Overview
EPO biomarker market is account to rise in value during the forecast period. Due to expansion in the product segment of EPO biomarkers the market share will be rising with a promising rate, also with the increase in demand for diagnosis and treatment of widely spread chronic disease the EPO market is expected to grow with a promising CAGR during the forecast period.
