9 Key Projections on Lung Cancer Diagnostics Market
Published : 28 Jul 2017 Industry: Healthcare
According to a recent report by Fact.MR, the global lung cancer diagnostics market is anticipated to register 7.3% CAGR throughout the forecast period 2017 to 2022.
Growth of the global lung cancer diagnostics market is mainly attributed to surging developments in the lung cancer-specific biomarkers. Diagnostic tools, such as these, will facilitate personalized treatment approach for lung malignancies.
Numerous biomarkers are in the research pipeline. Epigenomics AG has launched a new test which is based on blood by utilizing DNA methylation biomarkers, and their developments are in process. Initial results of these tests have guaranteed early diagnosis of lung cancer. These incidences are most likely to increase demand for diagnosis of lung cancer across the globe.
Several awareness programs related to lung cancer and its symptoms are being taken by the private as well as government authorities for enhancing the diagnosis as well as screening rates of patients with high risks of lung malignancies.
In the United Kingdom, November has been considered as lung cancer awareness month, and Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation has been supporting the initiative. These kinds of initiatives will fuel demand for diagnosis of lung cancer, which in turn will propel growth of the market.
