"Next-generation Sequencing (NGS)-based Companion Diagnostic Tests to Capture a Larger Market Share in Chronic and Life Threatening Diseases in the Future"

Advanced technologies such as next-generation sequencing (NGS), increasing adoption of companion diagnostics kits/tests by the pharmaceutical industry, and encouragement from regulatory bodies are expected to boost the global companion diagnostics market. This market is segmented by technology, application, and end user. Technologies are further subsegmented into immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridization (fluoroscent ISH and chromogenic ISH), polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and next-generation sequencing (NGS)-based tests.

Increasing costs of drug discovery; continuous focus on customized medicines for cancer; infectious, cardiovascular, neurological, and autoimmune diseases; and the need for technically advanced diagnostics has stimulated pharmaceutical firms to enter into the companion diagnostics market. In 2013, many new molecular entities (NMEs) were approved by a pharmacogenomic biomarker from the FDA. However, non-validated home brew tests employed by reference laboratories pose a major threat to validated companion diagnostic kits globally, as they are easily available and have faster approval procedures. In addition, different reimbursement policies followed by different regions may hinder the growth of the companion diagnostics market.

NGS-based companion diagnostics is one of the major factors that will drive the companion diagnostics market owing to its capability of identifying multiple genes at a single time. This in turn encouraged the adoption of diagnostic tests in the earlier clinical phase and ensured accurate treatments. Currently, NGS-based companion diagnostics tests are available for cystic fibrosis and the companion diagnostic manufacturers are engaged in developing tests for other chronic and life threatening diseases. To capture this market, pharmaceutical firms are striving to enter into the global companion diagnostics market through strategic acquisitions and collaborations with NGS platform diagnostic firms. Moreover, the end results of NGS is superior as compared to other technologies, as NGS provides a wider definition of genome sequencing that will fuel the adoption of NGS-based companion diagnostics in the future.

The growth in the companion diagnostics market is attributed to the growing need of personalized cancer treatment and tailored medications, increasing adoption of companion diagnostic tests by end users such as pharmaceutical and biotechnology firms and reference laboratories, and encouragement by regulatory bodies such as FDA and EMA to implement developments of companion diagnostic test at the early stages of drug development procedures. The oncology segment in the pharmaceutical industry and reference laboratories has been the major growth driver for the market.
