Global Immuno-Oncology Assays Market: Regional Insights

Based on geography, the immuno-oncology assays market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa.

Among regions, North America is expected to gain highest share in the market over the forecast period owing to the increase in prevalence/incidence of cancer and rising elderly population in the region, especially in the U.S. By harnessing the immune system, immuno-oncology aims to activate or augment the body's natural response to fight cancer. For instance, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS), in 2022, there will be an estimated 1.9 million new cancer cases diagnosed and 609,360 cancer deaths in the United States.

Asia Pacific is also expected to witness robust growth in the global immuno-oncology assays market due to the subsequent increase in the incidence of cancer and rise in geriatric population in the region. For instance, India’s cancer cases could increase by 12% in the next five years, with 1.5 million people projected to suffer from the non-communicable disease by 2025, up from 1.39 million in 2020, according to the report by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR). This in turn is expected to increase the use of immuno-oncology assays.

Global Immuno-Oncology Assays Market Drivers:

Rise in burden of cancer across the globe is expected to augment growth of the global immuno-oncology assays market over the forecast period. Immuno-oncology (IO) is a class of treatment designed to boost the body's natural immune defense against cancer. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), cancer was a leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for nearly 10 million deaths in 2020, or nearly one in six deaths. The most common cancers were breast, lung, prostate, and colon and rectum cancer. This in turn is expected to increase demand for immuno-oncology assays around the world.

Increase in focus on the development of novel cancer treatments is expected to boost growth of the global immuno-oncology assays market over the forecast period. For instance, immuno-oncology is the study and development of treatments that take advantage of the body's immune system to fight cancer. In the pursuit of precise cancer treatment, researchers are developing new techniques, known as immuno-oncology, to fight cancer. Immuno-oncology use the body's natural defences to target and eradicate cancer cells.

Global Immuno-Oncology Assays Market Trends:

Preventing cancer is a significant public health challenge around the world, with an increasing burden in almost every country. With the increasing prevalence of cancer, the demand for safe and effective treatment is also increasing rapidly. As a result, players in the market are focusing on developing and launching novel cancer therapeutics, and this trend is expected to continue over the forecast period, driving the growth of the market.

Moreover, the recent trend in the global immuno-oncology assays market is the development of immuno-oncology assays to fight cancer. Immuno-oncology is the study and development of treatments that take advantage of body's immune system to fight cancer. Thus, researchers are developing new techniques, known as immuno-oncology, to fight cancer. This trend is also expected to continue during the forecast period, driving the market growth.

Global Immuno-Oncology Assays Market Restraints:

Dearth of skilled professionals is expected to hinder growth of the global immuno-oncology assays market. For instance, there is a shortage of lab technicians, technologists, and possessing advanced laboratory expertise, a major factor that restrains growth of the market. Currently, Canada is facing a nation-wide shortage of lab technologists. As per the Canadian Society for Medical Laboratory Sciences, around 50% of the lab technologists are over the age of 45 years, and are expected to retire in next ten years.

Unfavourable regulatory and reimbursement scenario is expected to hamper the growth of the global immuno-oncology assays market. For instance, Immunotherapy in oncology (immuno-oncology) represents a promising new treatment category. It should come as no surprise that the rising cost of oncology medicine is a main driver of the challenges surrounding coverage and reimbursement.
