According to a new technical market research report, NANOMATERIALS IN THERANOSTICS: GLOBAL MARKETS (Report code: HLC144A) from BCC Research (http://www.bccresearch.com), the global market for theranostic nanomaterial was valued at $112 billion in 2012. BCC Research expects the market to reach $188 billion by 2017, and register a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.8% for the period 2012 to 2017.
Theranostics is the fusion of therapy and diagnosis; it is the foundation of personalized medicine. This revolutionary model of highly customized healthcare includes specific therapies that are tailored to treat diseases based on the patients’ genetic makeup. Theranostics is changing the standards of the healthcare model by imposing new marketing tactics, strategic alliances, innovative business models, and research and development outsourcing paradigms. BCC Research expects nanotechnology to play a pivotal role in this revolution. This report addresses the drivers and limiters of this new model and offers an exhaustive analysis of the nanomaterials used in theranostics.
Nanomaterials include biological molecules such as proteins and antibodies and organic and inorganic synthetic materials such as liposomes, quantum dots, gold nanoparticles, nanocrystals, and fullerenes. According to BCC Research, protein drugs and antibodies will dominate the market of theranostics through 2017. The market for protein drugs and antibodies, as a segment, was valued at $54.3 billion in 2012. This market is expected to reach nearly $100 billion in 2017, and register a CAGR of 12.9%. The monoclonal antibodies segment was valued at nearly $53 billion in 2012 and is expected to reach $61 billion in 2017, to register a CAGR of 2.9%.
Theranostic and personalized medicine will be the ultimate transformation of modern healthcare to diagnose and treat diseases. Nanotechnology will be the toolbox used to execute this new approach to medicine. Personalized medicine has already proved effective with respect to costs and has lowered the number of trial-and-error prescribing and incidents of hospitalizations due to adverse drug reactions and late diagnoses.
