Biomarker Technologies Market Outlook - 2026

The biomarker technologies market accounted for $21,594 million in 2018, and is expected to reach $58,508 million by 2026, registering a CAGR of 13.2% from 2019 to 2026. 

Biomarker is a biological characteristic which is measured and evaluated as a maker of normal biological or pathological processes or a response to a therapeutic intervention. For instance, patterns of gene expression are used to identify various diseases. There are different biomarkers, which can be identified by using different technologies such as polymerase chain reaction, next generation sequencing, immunoassay, and others. Biomarkers are extensively used in diagnosis of various diseases such as cancer, infectious diseases, autoimmune diseases, and others. This is due to their property of marking the biological changes associated with these diseases. Moreover, biomarkers are also employed in the drug development process as these can mark early toxicity associated with drugs in the early phases of drug development. In addition, as these provide sensitive data related to disease progression, biomarkers are also employed in personalized medicine.

Analyst Review

Biomarker technologies are the techniques used to measure biomarkers. These biomarkers are further measured to examine biological state or condition of the body. They are extensively used in disease identification as these are traceable when introduced into an organism. Moreover, these biomarkers are also employed in the detection of cellular defects and can be used to create genetic maps of the organisms that are studied. Biomarkers are used to detect diseases such as cancers, diabetes, AIDS, and others. The technologies performed to discover biomarkers include polymerase chain reactions (PCR), immunoassay, mass spectroscopy, chromatography, and others. The rise in prevalence of cancer and infectious diseases is the major factor that boosts the growth of the global biomarker technologies market. 

In addition, surge in healthcare investments worldwide is another major factor that drives the market growth. Moreover, increase in adoption of personalized medicine and rise in investments related to drug discovery across the globe are some other factors that contribute toward the growth of this market. However, higher initial capital investment for the discovery of biomarkers and dearth of skilled technical professionals is expected to restrain the market growth. Surge in awareness of early detection for the treatment of cancer makes way for different growth opportunities for the market during the forecast period.
