Digital Biomarkers Market Research, 2032

The global digital biomarkers market size was valued at $2.1 billion in 2022, and is projected to reach $14.7 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 21.3% from 2023 to 2032. Digital biomarkers are objective, quantifiable measurements collected from digital devices or platforms that provide insights into an individual's health or behavior. These biomarkers are derived from various sources, such as wearable devices, mobile applications, sensors, or other digital health technologies. Digital biomarkers can encompass a wide range of physiological, behavioral, or biometric data. Examples of digital biomarkers include heart rate, blood pressure, sleep patterns, physical activity levels, cognitive function, speech patterns, medication adherence, or even social media activity. These biomarkers can be collected continuously or intermittently, allowing for real-time monitoring and analysis of an individual's health status.

Digital Biomarkers Market

Historical Overview

The digital biomarkers market share was analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively from 2022 to 2032. The market experienced growth at a CAGR of around 21.3% from 2022 to 2032. Most of the growth during this period was derived from North America owing to high presence of market players who manufacture digital biomarkers and increase in of population suffering from chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, respiratory disorders, neurological diseases, and others.   

Market Dynamics

Growth of the global digital biomarkers market size is majorly driven by high presence of market players who manufacture digital biomarkers, and technological advancements for development of digital biomarkers. Moreover, rise in prevalence of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, mental health disorders, neurodegenerative diseases and chronic pain conditions is anticipated to drive the demand for digital biomarkers, and drive the growth of the market. Moreover, these biomarkers are used in assessment and diagnosis in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease. Technologies like wearable sensors, smartphone-based assessments, and digital cognitive tests can aid in tracking disease progression, motor symptoms, cognitive decline, and response to interventions.

Thus, rise in prevalence of Parkinson's disease is anticipated to fuel the demand for digital biomarker and boost the growth of the digital biomarker market. For instance, according to Parkinson's Foundation, in 2022, nearly 90,000 people were reported to have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in the U.S. each year. This represents a steep 50% increase from the previously estimated rate of 60,000 diagnoses annually. Moreover, digital voice biomarkers are being investigated as a potential tool for assessing and monitoring Parkinson's disease (PD). These biomarkers analyze speech characteristics and vocal patterns to detect changes that may be indicative of Parkinson's-related motor and non-motor symptoms.

Moreover, rise in product provision of digital biomarker for neurological disorders is anticipated to drive the digital biomarkers market growth. For instance, Koneksa, the leader in digital biomarker development and implementation provides digital biomarkers for Parkinson’s disease patients, which is a cloud-based software as a service (SaaS) used in Parkinson’s disease. In addition, ActiGraph LLC, a biotechnology research company, provides ActiGraph wGT3X-BT which is applicable for gait analysis and fall detection.

Rise in geriatric population is anticipated to drive the prevalence of chronic diseases such as neurological disease, cardiovascular disorders, respiratory diseases, and others. Thus, this factor is anticipated to boost the demand for digital biomarkers in geriatric population and boost the growth of the market. For instance, digital biomarkers are used in geriatric population to monitor or diagnose different diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and dementia, gait disorders, falls and fall risk assessment, cardiovascular health, and others.

In addition, according to World Health Organization (WHO), in 2023, currently more than 55 million people have been reported to suffer from dementia worldwide. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia and may contribute to 60–70% of cases. Moreover, according to PM&R Knowledge, in July 2023, the prevalence of gait disorders was estimated to be 10% in individuals 60-69 years old increasing to more than 60% for those older than 80 years old and 82% for those older than 85 years old. Thus, rise in Alzheimer’s disease, gait disorders and other neurological diseases is anticipated to boost the demand for digital biomarkers and boost the growth of the market. 

Health benefits associated with digital biomarkers is anticipated to drive the digital biomarkers market opportunity. For instance, digital biomarkers, enable early detection and prompt treatment of medical disorders. Digital biomarkers can detect problems far sooner than traditional ones, enabling early treatment. Wearable biomarkers and cellphones continually collect health data. For instance, Element Science, manufacturer of next-generation wearable digital platform, provided the patch-based wearable cardioverter defibrillator (WCD) continually tracks patients' cardiac activity.

Digital biomarkers also provide effective self-management and personalized remote patient treatment at a cheaper cost. Patients can acquire a better understanding of their state and make better health decisions owing to the capabilities of smartphones and wearable technology to continually assess health data and to combine data from many sources. In addition, the clinician can deliver individualized care remotely after receiving this data. The expense is decreased since all of these tasks may be completed online without going to a clinic or hospital. Thus, advancement in technology and health benefits associated with digital biomarker are anticipated to boost the growth of the digital biomarkers market forecast.

On the other hand, data security issue is acting as restraining factor for the growth of the digital biomarker market. For instance, data security can be a significant concern in the context of digital biomarkers due to several reasons such as sensitivity of health data, increased data volume and complexity, data transmission and storage and others. Moreover, digital biomarker data is often transmitted and stored on various platforms, including cloud servers, mobile devices, or remote servers. Each point of data transfer or storage introduces potential vulnerabilities that could be exploited by cybercriminals. Moreover, connected software products may pose cybersecurity challenges exposing trial participants and patients to privacy breaches or even safety risks.

In addition, digital biomarkers generate large volumes of data due to continuous or frequent monitoring. The sheer quantity and complexity of this data make it challenging to secure and manage it effectively. Increased data volume also means a higher risk of potential breaches or unauthorized access. Thus, cyber security issues associated with digital biomarker is anticipated to hamper the growth of the market.
