From the period of 2022 to 2028, the Global Cancer Biomarkers Market is expected to reach USD 31.8 Billion in terms of revenue, growing at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 17.5%.
In oncology, biomarkers are substances secreted by a tumor or a distinct human body reaction that indicates the existence of cancer. Using diverse genomes and proteomics technologies, biomarkers enable early cancer detection and ease high-speed noninvasive diagnosis. Biomarkers are employed in a variety of applications, including cancer diagnosis, medication research, prognostics, and customized medicine. Furthermore, the growing need for biomarkers in drug research and development for personalized medicine is propelling the global market forward. One of the primary factors expected to drive demand for Cancer Biomarkers is a paradigm shift toward personalized medicine for cancer therapy due to a lack of conventional diagnosis and treatment. Biomarkers are also becoming more important in personalized medicine, with applications in diagnosis, prognosis, and the selection of targeted therapy. Collaborations between various key industry players and research institutes with the goal of developing novel Cancer Biomarkers for personalized treatment are also expected to boost market expansion over the projected period.
