Predictive Diagnostics: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) April 23, 2015
Follow us on LinkedIn – Predictive diagnostics refer to a series of genetic tests that determine individual susceptibility to diseases, such as cystic fibrosis, Lou Gehrig's disease, Huntington's disease, and Alzheimer's disease. Predictive diagnostics are also beneficial in examining the gene composition and interaction in diseased tissue/cells to understand and determine progress of the disease as well as the response to treatment, such as in the numerous types of cancer. With an increase in chronic degenerative diseases (CDD), including cardiovascular diseases, neurodegenerative disorders, cancer, and autoimmune diseases, there is an acute need for predictive diagnostics. Factors driving the market include the emergence of new diseases, increasing aging population and age-related diseases, an increasing preference for Point-of-Care (POC) diagnostic tests and kits, and favorable economic scenario and healthcare spending in the emerging economies.
Oncology, a major area of interest for pharmaceutical companies, is a major market for predictive diagnostic tools, because genetic testing enables early identification of the illness and guides physicians in taking the most appropriate course of treatment. With the cost of sequencing the entire genome falling below US$1,000 in comparison to anti-cancer treatment which cost over US$50,000, physicians increasingly prefer predictive diagnostics, following which medications are prescribed to only those patients who are more likely to respond to a specific cancer therapy or treatment option. Genetic testing, particularly for breast cancer and colorectal cancer, is expected to register the highest growth in the near future. With the WHO predicting that over 2 million breast cancer cases would be diagnosed by 2030, predictive diagnostics assume increased importance in the detection and management of breast cancer.
As stated by the new market research report on Predictive Diagnostics, Europe represents the largest market, while the United States ranks as the fastest growing market with a high compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18.7% over the analysis period. While developed economies with advanced healthcare infrastructure are at the forefront in the adoption of predictive genetic testing, population growth and recent government initiatives for better healthcare are expected to spur demand in developing countries in the near future. Asia-Pacific represents the second fastest growing market for predictive diagnostics.
