Liquid Biopsy Market Foresees Skyrocketing Growth in the Coming Years 2018-2026

Liquid biopsy gained popularity among physicians owing to increasing importance of precision medicine and advantages offered by the liquid biopsy over conventional biopsy techniques. Clinical diagnosis of tumors is done by pathological testing and medical imaging in which pathological testing involves tissue biopsies, molecular pathology tests, and serological indicators tests. Among these techniques tissue biopsy is considered as a gold standard for diagnosis. However, it has certain disadvantages such as difficulty in obtaining tissues from terminal cancer patients, complications due to sampling, and result difference due to tumor heterogeneity. Liquid biopsy provides more accurate results and offers more advantages over conventional techniques. It uses circulating tumor cell detection and cell free DNA etc. techniques for early detection of the cancer. Click To Read More On Liquid Biopsy Market.

Market Dynamics

Factors such as rising prevalence of various cancers, rising demand for minimally invasive procedures, and advantages offered by liquid biopsy over conventional tissue biopsy are supporting growth of the liquid biopsy market. Liquid biopsy offers advantages over conventional tissue biopsy such as early disease detection, real-time monitoring of the metastasis and actual treatment response, detection of primary tumors and metastasis through simple and non-invasive tests, and may be cheaper than conventional biopsy. Furthermore, prevalence of various cancers is increasing and according to National Cancer Institute, 2016, an estimated 16.8 million new cases of cancer are diagnosed in the U.S., with an around 595,690 deaths from the disease. The number of people with cancer is expected to rise to 19 million by 2024, indicating need for early disease diagnosis and treatment. Demand for minimally invasive treatments is also increasing as tissue biopsy is an invasive approach for cancer diagnosis, wherein, liquid biopsy is more convenient, which is expected to boost growth of the liquid biopsy market.

A liquid biopsy is a simple and non-invasive technique that enables to discover a range of information about a tumor through a simple blood sample. Some of the commercially available liquid biopsy tests for cancer are Cologurad, Guardant360, Oncotype SEQ Liquid Select, and Target Selector liquid biopsy assays. A liquid biopsy test can detect epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene mutations, evident in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The process requires only 5 milliliters of blood and is quicker than a surgical biopsy. The blood sample is processed to get 2 milliliters of plasma that is analyzed for tumor DNA. Potential of liquid biopsies to detect disease progression or treatment resistance long before it would trigger clinical symptoms or appear on imaging scans is major factor driving growth of liquid biopsy market.

Tissue samples removed for biopsy many not show all mutations as cancer has multiple genetic mutations, whereas liquid biopsies offer an improved chance of detecting these genetic changes. Moreover, the efficiency of liquid biopsy to improve progression and survival rates in cancer is major factor driving growth of the market.

Manufacturers are focusing on development of new tests in the liquid biopsy market and this is expected to bolster growth of the liquid biopsy market over the forecast period

Established as well as small players in the liquid biopsy market are actively focusing on research and development of methods in liquid biopsy through collaborations. For instance, Biodesix—a U.S.-based company—developed a novel way of extract circulating RNA from plasma in November 2017, in collaboration with Norgen Biotek. Moreover, Precipio—a U.S.-based organization, entered into merger agreement with Transgenomic, in 2017, for commercializing ICE COLD PCR (ICP) for liquid biopsies, which preferentially enriches mutant DNA sequences over wild-type DNA through selective amplification. HaploX Biotechnology—a China-based company—raised US$ 32 Mn in financing, in January 2018, in order to integrate liquid biopsy technology, artificial intelligence, and gene sequencing.
