Market Overview

The global oncology companion diagnostics market size was valued at USD 893.44 million in 2022. It is estimated to reach USD 2,436.84 million by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 11.8% during the forecast period (2023–2031).

A branch of pharmacogenomics known as companion diagnostics (CDx) studies how to use a person's genetic profile to predict how they will react to a drug or tailor their treatment specifically for them. The FDA defines CDx as a medical device, frequently in vitro, that provides the knowledge required to safely and effectively use a corresponding drug or biological product safely and effectively.

In oncology, companion diagnostics are utilized to better pair a patient with an appropriate treatment. For instance, a companion diagnostic test could determine the presence or absence of a drug-targeted gene alteration or biomarker in a patient's tumor. This is useful information in deciding whether or not to give the drug to the patient.

Global Market Restraint

Possibility of Reduce Due to the Adoption of CDx Laboratory-Developed Tests

The FDA evaluates the analytical validity of a commercial CDx and its clinical validity, which means its ability to predict clinical outcomes from its biomarker measurement. Moreover, commercial companion diagnostics are subject to systematic adverse event reporting, premarket review, and correction or recall process. Such discrepancy in regulatory overseeing between commercial and lab-developed tests grabs substantial attention in using commercially developed pharmacodiagnostic tests in academic organizations and research institutes. Such factors restrain market growth to a certain extent in the coming years.

Global Market Opportunities

Collaborations Between Diagnostic and Pharma Entities

The pathway for developing companion diagnostics can be best achieved through close coordination and interaction among drug companies, regulatory agencies, and diagnostic manufacturers. There is a specific requirement for an alliance between drug companies, regulatory agencies, and diagnostic companies.
