Global Cancer Diagnostics Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The global cancer diagnostics market is expected to grow 288.6 billion by 2029 from USD 146.87 billion in 2024 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.2% from 2024 to 2029.

Global Cancer Diagnostics MARKET DRIVERS:

The continuous rise in the number of cancer patients is the primary market growth factor. Cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide and has been heightening at a startling rate. In 2018, the World Cancer Research Fund International found about 18 million recorded cancer cases worldwide. The continual innovation of products and the increasing need for advanced diagnosis of several diseases are prime market growth factors. In addition, the growing number of cancer cases raises the demand for screening tests and imaging methods to control disease progression. Governments and corporations are taking independent and collaborative initiatives to raise awareness about early cancer diagnosis benefits. Moreover, cancer research institutes and private bodies invest massively in research projects to launch advanced diagnostic tools in the market, proficient in diagnosing the disease much before the symptoms appear.

 Global Cancer Diagnostics MARKET RESTRAINTS:

Yet, high-cost therapy and low compensation policies in the world's developing countries may hinder the market growth. The increasing use of diagnostic tests coupled with advancements that enable accurate and quicker results has escalated diagnostics costs. The majority of the population cannot afford advanced diagnostic imaging methods, thus impeding the market growth rate. Although various screening procedures enable disease detection at an early stage, they pose certain risk factors that negatively affect health, such as nausea and diarrhea. Also, the cost entailed in performing a diagnosis is relatively high. Therefore, the damaging effects of imaging solutions and the high price of diagnosis are expected to hinder the market growth. In addition, large-scale investments by medical corporations and low profit-cost quotient, and a scarcity of skilled professionals pose restrictions to this market's growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on the cancer diagnostics market:

The recent outbreak of COVID-19 has shifted the healthcare industry's focus and subsequently impacted the Cancer Diagnostics market. The pandemic has disrupted the spectrum of cancer care, as screening programs and services have been suspended or decreased in many countries. Thus, COVID-19 is expected to have some impact on cancer outcomes. However, market players still focus on R & D investments, leading to innovations in the cancer treatment and diagnosis market. Severe shortages of critical medical supplies and expeditiously rising COVID-19 cases have resulted in reconstruction rather than progression in the healthcare ecosystems. Furthermore, transportation restrictions and supply chain disruptions have created a logistical ordeal for market players, leading to severe diagnostic product shortages globally.

  • Liver-lung cancer
  • Melanoma
  • Non-Hodgkin lymphoma
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Thyroid cancer
  • Others

Other cancers (than listed above) are currently dominating the application segment due to the rise in public health awareness programs and proactive undertakings by government healthcare departments to encourage early detection and curb the mortality rate connected with cancer globally. Lung cancer is anticipated to grow faster during the forecast period due to the constant rise in tobacco consumption and the rise in air pollution at an alarming rate.

Global Cancer Diagnostics Market - By End-User

  • Hospitals
  • Diagnostic laboratories
  • Diagnostic imaging centers
  • Cancer research institutes

The hospital segment leads with the highest shares of the market owing to the growing number of hospitals with an increasing patient pool. In addition, diagnostic laboratories are also gaining traction in gaining the highest shares due to the increasing demand for the early detection of diseases. 

Global Cancer Diagnostics Market - By Region

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Latin America
  • The Middle East and Africa

Currently, North America leads the regional segment for the global cancer diagnostics market. American Cancer Society (ACS), in its latest research citings in 2019, approximated 1.7 million new cancer cases to be diagnosed and around 606,880 deaths in America due to cancer. The principal factor driving the cancer diagnostics market growth in the region is the home of market leaders such as Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc., Hologic, Inc., Qiagen, GE Healthcare, and Danaher Corporation. Europe follows behind in the second position due to the rising predominance of cancer. It focuses on developing advanced technology in cancer diagnostics by strategic collaboration between academic institutes and medical device manufacturers; finally, The Asia Pacific region is expected to manifest widespread growth during the forecast period due to the continual rise in medical tourism and developing healthcare infrastructure.
