Vision Shopsters:The Worldwide Market for Cancer Diagnostics, 4th Edition

Press Release   •   Oct 09, 2010 10:16 IST

Since Kalorama Information last updated our comprehensive market report on cancer testing, changes in the industry abound. Developments that were novel two years ago such as the commercialization of service products , PGx testing and tissue microarrays are showing an increased presence. Some companies who promised much in the past have not produced results. And new entrants have entered the field.

These changes and more are addressed in Kalorama Information's Worldwide Market for Cancer Diagnostics, 4th. Edition. This report authored by Kalorama Diagnostic Analyst Shara Rosen, contains detailed market data on the following IVD segments for their use in cancer diagnostics:

  • Histology/Cytology

  • Immunoassays

  • Flow Cytometry

  • Rapid Tests

  • Molecular Assays

  • Tissue Arrays

  • Circulating Tumor Cells

  • Pharmacodiagnostics

Diagnostic tests for effective cancer screening are obviously needed more than ever. As cancer becomes more treatable, diagnostics are finding multiple expanded roles, including pharmacodiagnostics for matching the targeted treatment to the patient and ongoing disease monitoring as treatable cancer enters the realm of the chronic disease. Kalorama Information's Worldwide Market for Cancer Diagnostics, 4th Edition represents the fourth time Kalorama has engaged in an exhaustive study on the status of this important diagnostic market. Among the market data provided in this report, readers will find:

  • Immunoassay Lab Based Cancer Test Sales

  • Pap Smear Testing Volumes

  • World Cancer Statistics

  • POC Tests

  • DNA Reagents for Cancer Testing

  • CTC Testing Markets

  • Biochip Innovations

  • New Companies with Novel Approaches

  • "Laggard" Companies Who Have Not Met Expectations

  • Major Protein and Molecular Markers Used in Tissue Staining

  • Biomarkers Under Investigation

  • Acquisitions and Mergers

  • Status of PGx Testing

  • Microarray Markets in Clinical Labs

  • Lists of Vendors and Major Products

  • Unmet Needs of the Marketplace

This report includes market analysis of the following screening tests: The Cancer Profile, CTC, Fecal Occult Blood, PSA, H. pylori, IHC, ISH As well as tests for specific cancers:

  • Bladder Cancer

  • Breast Cancer

  • Cervical Cancer

This latest edition of Kalorama Information’s study takes a fresh look at all of these developments both qualitatively and quantitatively. The report provides revenue and growth forecasts through 2014 and, as in the previous edition, analyzes the market in two ways:

  • Tests for specific cancers, and

  • Cancer tests in specific IVD segments

This allows the reader to match his or her own situation to the market at large.

The various diagnostic techniques and trends are discussed from the point of view of their present and potential market impact. Therefore, the report does not provide an in depth discussion of the etiology, physiology and clinical manifestations of cancer except where an understanding of these areas is required to understand the impact that new and early diagnostics exert on patient care. Similarly, the report does not describe the technical aspects of the test modalities, for example

All market data is based on factory sales to the end user and not retail pricing or reimbursement payments. For cancer testing, this means that the actual dollar market - that is what manufacturers earn from the sale of their products is undervalued. This is because many of the new tests are offered as test services either by the companies that have developed the tests and/or their partners.

Market data is presented in dollar market size for categories of tests, and for specific analytes where possible. Here the dollar value of a market segment is directly proportional to the number of tests performed, because the cost of the instrumentation is generally buried in the per test price.

The report discusses tests and technologies that are currently available and those that are expected to take their place. Generally, current products and technologies establish the standard of care and its value to payers. Many of the assays and imaging techniques presented in the report are expected to replace the standard of care in 2010, but with healthcare systems' emphasis on cost/benefit analysis for new technologies adoption, the market value and thus penetration capabilities of newer approaches may be limited.

The information presented in this report is derived on publicly available information sources such as company, government, and medical organization reports. The analysis is based on the author's industry knowledge combined with literature searches and interviews with industry professionals and experts in the areas of in vitro diagnostics, imaging industries and cancer specialists.
