Wellesley, Mass. (PRWEB) April 01, 2014
BCC Research (http://www.bccresearch.com) reveals in its new report, CARDIAC BIOMARKERS: TECHNOLOGIES AND GLOBAL MARKETS, the global market for in vitro diagnostic tests for cardiac biomarkers is expected to grow to $7.2 billion by 2018, and register a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.8%. China is the fastest moving market growing at a 18.6% CAGR.
Driven by the development of new congestive heart failure biomarkers, approvals of stroke biomarkers, and the growing market in point-of-care testing, the largest regional segment for this market is the United States, which is expected to grow to $3.1 billion by 2018 at a CAGR of 9.6%.
However, increasing access to advanced medical care in the emerging economies is shifting the greater market toward China, which is projected to grow from $798 million in 2013 to nearly $1.7 billion by 2018.
“The market leader in 2012 was the U.S., followed by Europe and China,” says BCC Research biotechnology analyst Cheng-Yuk Lee. “However, with the ever-expanding medical infrastructure and services in China, the Chinese market is expected to grow at the fastest pace and take over Europe as the second largest segment by 2018.”
Cardiac Biomarkers: Technologies and Global Markets provides a comprehensive analysis of the cardiac biomarker market. Current and projected forecasts assay revenues during the forecast period (2013 to 2018) are presented. In addition, newly developed assays with regulatory approval and others expected to receive FDA approval within the forecast period are also projected. For large market segments, such as cardiac troponin and natriuretic peptides, the analytical sensitivities and cutoff references for the diagnosis and prognosis values are discussed in detail. Moreover, the ongoing effort in developing a high-sensitivity troponin assay, as well as the attempt to pursue additional biomarkers for the diagnosis of congestive heart failure and strokes are focused on in this study.
