According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Cancer Diagnostics Market is accounted for $17.82 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $43.24 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 13.5% during the forecast period. Cancer diagnostics is a method of identifying different biomarkers, proteins, and some signs that lead to the identification of the presence of a cancerous tumor. Efficient diagnostic testing is used to validate or rule out the existence of illness, monitor the progression of the disease, and schedule & review treatment outcomes. Diagnostic procedures for cancer may include imaging, tumor biopsy, laboratory tests (including tests for tumor markers), endoscopic examination, surgery, or genetic testing.

Market Dynamics:


Development in the number of private diagnostic centers

The number of private diagnostic centers is rising across the globe as there is a rising demand for diagnostic imaging procedures and an increasing burden on public hospitals owing to the limited number of imaging modalities at their disposal. Favorable healthcare policies, coupled with high per capita healthcare spending, have created a conducive environment for the adoption of advanced cancer diagnostic technologies such as imaging. Strategies undertaken by these companies include product launches and expansion plans, which will drive market growth.


High cost 

The rising demand for tests coupled with technological advancements with faster results and accuracy has escalated the price associated with imaging cancer diagnostics. The practice of imaging diagnostics has grown exponentially over the last decade in the industry. Though, in numerous countries, it is observed that some cancer diagnostic services are not fully covered by insurance.


Recommendations for cancer screening, Introduction of novel diagnostic biomarkers

The identification of prospective cancer biomarkers has been made possible by technological developments in the field of biotechnology, and some of these biomarkers have been marketed. The introduction of novel diagnostic biomarkers is creating lucrative opportunities for the growth of the market. Moreover, to detect cancer in the early stages and bring down the mortality rate, governments in advanced countries and primary care doctors are recommending cancer screening tests for patients. The increased understanding of certain cancer biomarkers is creating a huge commercial opportunity for treating cancer patients through improved detection technology and equipment.


Insufficient reimbursement policies

Inadequate reimbursement policies are predictable to threaten the growth of the market. There have been numerous advancements in radiology concerning imaging equipment in the recent past. Moreover, most medical insurance companies do not offer reimbursement for procedures using Computer-aided Detection (CAD). Thus, people tend to choose conventional methods for diagnosis such as biopsy, pathological tests, or conventional imaging methods such as mammography, and MRI procedures.

Breast Cancer segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The breast cancer category is the largest segment in the market, due to upsurge in older women population and increase in breast cancer prevalence between the women. Moreover, the market will gain traction owing to an increase in the number of initiatives conducted by numerous groups are some of the factor foster the segment growth.

The Hospital Associated Labs segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The hospitals segment accounted for the largest share of the market, owing to the increasing number of in-house diagnostic procedures performed in hospitals, the growing number of patients visiting hospitals, and rising consciousness regarding early diagnosis is the major driving factor for this market.

Region with highest share:

The North America is projected to hold the highest market share, owing to developed healthcare infrastructure, government initiatives toward public health care are expected to drive this dominance. Moreover, the rise in cancer cases, the presence of key manufacturers, well-established healthcare infrastructure, and rising awareness regarding cancer and its proper management. The additionally rising presence of numerous biotechnology as well as medical device companies, rising greater funding available for research and development projects, and high adoption of advanced technologies in this province are some of the factors driving the market growth in the province.

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR, The growth is accredited to the rise in the medical tourism market, and the increase in the prevalence of cancer disease in countries of this area is favouring the market growth. The Asia Pacific is also flourishing owing to medical tourism, increasing awareness, and investment in private diagnostic centers. This is owing to the presence of a huge patient population, a well-defined regulatory system that favours fast product approvals, and the accessibility of qualified personnel at a reduced cost.
