Global Companion Diagnostics Market Size (2021 to 2026)

As per our recently published report, the global companion diagnostics market size is forecasted to grow USD 12.88 billion by 2026 from USD 4.66 billion in 2021, showcasing a CAGR of 22.56% from 2021 to 2026.

Companion diagnostics are categorized by the rising requirement for improved personalized patient treatment that contributes to healthcare providers and their patients' positive assurance about the treatment results, differing from traditional treatment procedures.

These diagnostics help regulate the patient's personal molecular profile, which supports determining which therapy will work for the patient. This diagnostic procedure requires a biopsied tissue to contact the appearance of biomarker protein or mutant. Companion diagnostics are also used in the drug development process by defining a companion biomarker that predicts likely toxicity response. 

MARKET DRIVERS:

The increasing number of targeted therapies, the shifting trend towards personalized medicine, and the rise in the prevalence of improving treatment procedures by properly analyzing diagnosis results are majorly accelerating the growth of the global companion diagnostics market.

In addition, an increase in the focus on next-generation sequencing technology and diagnostics procedures has an immense role in developing drugs, potentially influencing the growth of the global companion diagnostics market.

Furthermore, an increasing number of diagnostic centers with the latest equipment with private and public organizations' help and growing spending on healthcare also fuel the market's growth rate. In addition, companion diagnostics promotes better treatment options suitable for the patient for a particular disease, boosting the global companion diagnostics market.

MARKET CHALLENGES:

However, lack of awareness and skilled professionals and the cost of installing and maintaining the equipment require vast amounts that small-scale companies cannot afford, slowly impeding the market demand.

Frequent changes in the software and the time taken to update the existing one are a little more. This attribute is limiting the demand of the market. In addition, the shortage of skilled technicians to resolve the complications in real-time applications has remained challenging for the market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global companion diagnostics market:

The global companion diagnostics market growth is negatively impacted during the first quarter of 2020; WHO announced the pandemic as healthcare emergence. When the disease transmission accelerated, all the governments imposed nationwide lockdown. The companion market is significantly affected due to a ban on flights and transportation. Companion market has its supply chain across the country, including significant tier I and Tier II such as Agilent technologies, thermos fisher, Roche Diagnostics, and Abbott laboratories. In the countries such as Europe, Asia Pacific, North America, and South America, suppliers have manufacturing facilities with these countries; due to sudden lockdown and stringent government guidelines and social distancing implementation, the supply chain of these products has been disrupted.

With the surge in the COVID-19 cases, many researchers directed their research to study the novel virus and the disease it causes. In addition, the rising significance of companion diagnostics in drug development and the increasing number of clinical trials for possible drug treatment create the demand for companion diagnostics during COVID-19. The companion diagnostics propel clinical success by identifying biomarkers and disease-specific therapeutic targets. Therefore, the market growth is expected to increase during the forecast period.
