Biomarkers Industry Trends and Market Segment Forecasts To 2020 - Global Market Size,Growth and Analysis

Press Release   •   Dec 28, 2013 02:44 EST

Biomarkers are used as diagnostic tools to measure the presence and severity of a disease. These biomarkers are naturally occurring genes or molecules and are introduced to the target site or organ to detect pathological and physiological processes of a disease. 

Biomarkers hold paramount importance in the field of drug discovery and development by providing clarity on a disease in terms of its epidemiology of a disease. Therefore, rising number of initiatives undertaken in the drug discovery and development field is the most significant growth driver of this market. Moreover, rising worldwide prevalence of cardiology, oncology and neurology based diseases and encouraging initiatives undertaken by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. FDA will serve the global biomarker market as drivers. 

Drug discovery and development dominates the application market in terms of market share. Moreover, this segment is expected to maintain its market position throughout the forecast period. Drug discovery and development are of very high importance in the pharmaceuticals industry. The use of biomarkers in this process helps in accelerating the process and in predicting drug failures. Such an ability of biomarkers to predict drug failures proves to extremely cost effective as according to the estimates of the U.S. FDA, accurate drug failure predictions save approximately USD 100 million for the manufacturers.
