Global Companion Diagnostics Market - Industry Analysis and Market Forecast (2017 - 2022)

The global companion diagnostics market is currently estimated to be valued at USD 4.5 billion in 2014 and is poised to reach USD 27 billion by the end of 2020. The CAGR during this period is estimated to be 35%.

Companion diagnostics is a relatively new branch of diagnostics that is expected to grow at a swift pace in the near future. The various advantages it offers have increased its market demand globally. It has the potential to totally alter the drug development process and commercialization of the drug prospects will generate drugs with a better therapeutic efficiency in a faster and cost-effective way.

Oncology is one such area that has hugely benefitted from the advent of companion diagnostics. Companion diagnostics has been highly beneficial to identify patients with specific biomarkers that have predictive responses. This means that it has the power to predict the response of a specific therapy for a specific person, which in turn results in better patient treatments and reduction in healthcare expenditure.
