Non-invasive cancer diagnostics are procedures used for the identification of cancer without incision in the body. Detection and treatment of cancer at early stages are important for long-term survival. Non-invasive cancer detection method is found to be an increasing choice of interest, owing to its painless or minimal pain method of diagnostic coupled with more accurate results. Molecular based diagnostic methods are expected to increase during the forecast period due to launches of new biomarker based detection methods. Moreover, factors like increasing incidence of cancer, increasing cancer screening rate, government initiatives, and emerging technologies such as next generation sequencing are expected to drive the market during the forecast period.

According to Cancer Research UK, currently no diagnostic tests are 100% sensitive in general practice. This suggests the unmet demand for novel diagnostic assay with more efficiency. The efficiency of molecular diagnostics for screening of blood and tissue sample for cancer detection fuels the research and development of biomarker based molecular diagnostic method, which can detect abnormalities in their early developmental cycle. Moreover, according to Genome Biology article published in 2017, the current research in non-invasive cancer detection are targeting two class of studies - the development of biomarkers for a specific cancer type and the characterization of circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) for general cancer detection, without trying to predict specific cancer types. Such studies will help manufacturers to develop better cancer detection kits for molecular based diagnostics.

Non-Invasive Cancer Diagnostics Market Drivers

Increasing incidence of cancer is expected to be a major factor driving growth of non-invasive cancer diagnostics market. Cancer is a major factor impacting the world economy. For instance, according to the National Cancer Institute (NIH), cancer incidence was 439.2 per 100,000 individuals based on the cancer cases that occurred between 2011 and 2015. The same source estimated that rate of cancer survivors in the U.S. were 15.5 million, which is expected to increase to 20.3 million by 2026.

Increasing rate of cancer detection will also boost the non-invasive cancer diagnostics market growth. According to the U.S. Breast Cancer Surveillance Consortium (BCSC) researchers, the rate of cancer detection increased to 34.7 per 1,000 individuals in 2013, as compared to 25.3 per 1,000 individuals in 2005. Furthermore, governmental and non-governmental organizations are engaged in raising awareness for breast and cervical cancer as well as conducts screening programme. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) is involved in improving diagnosis rate by revising draft guideline for early cancer detection. Moreover, increasing cancer studies for cancer drug development will boost the non-invasive cancer diagnostics market growth. In 2016, NCI's Center to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities launched the National ‘Screen to Save’ Colorectal Cancer Outreach and Screening Initiative. The initiative was aimed at increasing colorectal cancer screening rate.

Non-Invasive Cancer Diagnostics Market - Regional Analysis

On the basis of region, the global non-invasive cancer diagnostics market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa. North America holds a dominant position in the non-invasive diagnostics market, owing to increasing incidence of cancer, increasing technological advancement, better reimbursement scenario, and governmental initiatives for screening of cancer in early stages. For instance, the American Cancer Society Guidelines for the early detection of cancer offers various screening plans at different ages. For example, the guidelines suggest that women between the age of 40 and 44 must screen for breast cancer annually.

Non-Invasive Cancer Diagnostics Market – Competitive Landscape

Some of the key players operating in the global non-invasive cancer diagnostics market include Roche Diagnostics, Hologic Inc., Qiagen, Gen-Probe Inc., Digene Corporation, Abbott Molecular, IVDiagnostics, Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings, OncoCyte Corporation, Arquer Diagnostics Ltd. and Affymetrix Inc.

Increasing product launches as a part of organic strategies to rule the market is also the key factor contributing to the non-invasive cancer diagnostics market growth. For instance, in 2017, Natera, Inc., a company involved in non-invasive genetic testing, launched Sigatera, ctDNA technology based novel personalized approach for cancer detection. The advantage of the Signatera is that, it can target 16 or more patient–specific mutations. Moreover, technologies like spectroscopy is expected to be alternative for the liquid biopsy. For instance, in 2013, Medipex Ltd’s diagnostic device named ZedScan I, cervical cancer detection device received CE approval. Moreover, to enter China market, company announced strategic deal with MaxHealth Medicine Group in February 2018. Increasing pipeline products are also expected to boost the market growth. For instance, OncoCyte Corporation, is engaged in developing a confirmatory test for lung cancer via non-invasive liquid biopsy. Further, in 2016, Exosome Diagnostics, Inc. launched ExoDx Prostate (IntelliScore) test. The test uses genetic information from urine sample to evaluate patient risk for high grade prostate cancer. Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings, in 2016, launched Epi proColon, the first FDA-approved DNA based blood test for colorectal cancer screening with FDA approval.

The inorganic strategies by market players are continuously boosting the non-invasive cancer diagnostics market. For instance, in 2017, Lonza, a biopharmaceutical development and manufacturing company, acquired HanaBioMaed Life Sciences OU, a company dedicated to research and development, manufacturing and distribution of products for the exosome genome market. Through this acquisition, company will invest to develop exosome-based early-stage cancer screening and molecular diagnostic tests. In same year, CORE Diagnostics partnered with CellMax Life to introduce CellMax’s genetic cancer risk test and ctDNA-based liquid biopsy throughout India.
