Biomarkers Market Is Expected To Be Flourished By Increasing Adoption Of Personalized Medicines


Biomarkers are measurable and quantifiable biological parameters that can be used to evaluate normal biological processes, pathogenic processes, or pharmacologic responses to a therapeutic intervention. Biomarkers have diverse applications in healthcare including disease risk assessment, diagnosis, prognosis, prediction of treatment responses, and monitoring of disease progression or recurrence. They play a vital role in drug discovery and development with their use for target identification and validation, patient selection, assessment of pharmacodynamics effects, and prediction of adverse events. Biomarkers help develop personalized medicines that can pinpoint which patients will most likely respond to a specific drug and avoid adverse reactions.

The global biomarkers market is estimated to be valued at US$ 17.97 billion in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 8.2% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Dynamics:

Increasing Adoption of Personalized Medicines: The growing adoption of personalized medicines owing to their targeted treatment approach and improved clinical outcomes is expected to drive the biomarkers market growth over the forecast period. Biomarkers enable development of personalized medicines by helping researchers determine which biological characteristics, such as genes, proteins, or other biomarkers make people more responsive to a specific drug or therapy. This fuels the demand for biomarkers in drug discovery and development activities focused on precision medicines.

Rising Healthcare Expenditure: Increasing healthcare spending globally to enhance diagnostics, treatment, and drug development facilities is another key factor augmenting the biomarkers market. Governments across nations are allocating higher budgets for healthcare to provide affordable and advanced care to citizens. Greater healthcare spending allows more investments in biomarkers research and associated technological advancements to develop innovative biomarkers that improve disease diagnosis and therapy monitoring.

Segment Analysis
The global biomarkers market can be segmented based on product & services, disease indication, and application.
