Demand Analysis of Colorectal Cancer Diagnostics (2016 to 2020) Vs Market Projections (2021 to 2031)

Colorectal cancer is also known as colon cancer or rectal cancer based on the nature of origin in the body. The cancers are very similar in most aspects, hence, colon cancer diagnostics and rectal cancer diagnostics are researched and developed on the same lines as that of colorectal cancer.

Instances of colorectal cancer have been seeing an increase over the past decade, and this can be attributed to lifestyle disorders, aging population, and improper diet habits. WHO (World Health Organization) has also stated that, there would be a 70% rise in the prevalence of colorectal cancer cases worldwide by 2030.

As the number of cases rises, demand for effective treatment and diagnosis is also expected to follow a similar trend. Demand for colorectal cancer diagnostics is expected to rise at a CAGR of 8.5% over the decade.

Which Tests are Most Common for Colorectal Cancer Diagnostics?

There are many tests prevalent in the industry to diagnose colorectal cancer. Every test has its own specific nature of indicator. Of all of the tests, FOB tests are expected to see dominant demand over the forecast period and rake in majority of revenue. CTC tests for colorectal cancer diagnostics are expected to follow and bring in the second-highest revenue share.

Demand for immunochemistry tests for colorectal cancer diagnostics is predicted to rise at the highest CAGR over the next ten years. BRAF tests for colorectal cancer diagnostics are not as common and are anticipated to rise at the lowest CAGR among all other tests.

What is the Outlook for the Colorectal Cancer Treatment Market?

As prevalence of colorectal cancer increases, demand for its treatment is also expected to see a significant increase over the years. Key providers of colorectal cancer diagnostics are focusing on creating effective and optimal diagnostic solutions that would be crucial in treatment of the disease.

Colorectal cancer medicine manufacturers are also focusing on developing drugs and pharmaceuticals that would aid in the treatment process. This is expected to drive demand in the colorectal cancer medication market.

Screening and imaging play a vital role in the diagnosis of colorectal cancer to understand the extent of tumor-affected area. In-vitro colorectal cancer screening tests are expected to see major rise in demand over the next ten years as instances of colorectal cancer rise.

Growth of the colorectal cancer diagnostics devices market is directly proportional to the growth of the global colorectal cancer diagnostics market, and is expected to rise at a similar pace in terms of demand.

Why is Popularity of Colorectal Cancer Therapeutics Increasing?

With incidence of colorectal cancer rising, demand for therapeutics to treat the condition is also anticipated to rise. Colorectal cancer immunotherapy is one of the most significant types of treatment that is popular across the world.

Demand for colorectal cancer immunotherapy is anticipated to be very notable over the decade, and this can be attributed to widespread availability of immunotherapy drugs all over the globe.

For advanced stages of colorectal cancers, different therapies are used based on the risk factor. Colorectal cancer targeted therapy and colorectal cancer chemotherapy are majorly used for advanced stage cases.

Country-wise Analysis

How is the U.S. Colorectal Cancer Diagnostics Market Shaping Up?

Colorectal cancer is the second-most-common cancer to cause death in the U.S., and this makes it a major cause of concern for the nation. The U.S. is seeing a substantial rise in cases of colorectal cancer, and this can be attributed to sedentary lifestyle and poor eating & dietary habits which are prevalent in the nation.

Demand for colorectal cancer diagnostics is also driven by the presence of prominent players in the country and early adoption of novel diagnostic and treatment solutions.

Why is Demand for Colorectal Cancer Diagnostics High in China?

Demand for colorectal cancer diagnostics in China is expected to evolve at a high CAGR over the forecast period. Increase in demand can be attributed to rising awareness about the disease, prevalence of cost-effective diagnosis, and rising medical tourism.

Over the coming years, the market in China is expected to be substantially larger than what it is in terms of size as well as revenue.

Category-wise Analysis     

Which Establishments Lead Demand for Colorectal Cancer Diagnostics?

Hospital-associated labs hold a dominant revenue share in the global colorectal cancer diagnostics industry. Demand for colorectal cancer diagnostics at cancer research institutes is anticipated to rise at the highest CAGR over the next ten years.

Use of colorectal cancer diagnostics in independent diagnostic laboratories is expected to see major increase, especially in emerging economies, due to increasing affordability of diagnostic devices and instruments.

COVID-19 Pandemic Evaluation

The screening and diagnosis of colorectal cancer saw a major drop during the pandemic period, which is a cause of concern, since diagnosis is a crucial aspect to deal with the disease effectively. Due to the pandemic, it was not possible to run extensive diagnosis of various health issues, and that created some major issues for people suffering from different health conditions.

In the post-pandemic era, focus on diagnosis of colorectal cancer is expected to see a major rise as WHO has predicted a massive rise in cases for this decade. More diagnostic providers will be targeting cost-effective methods to boost sales of tests and increase diagnostic numbers.

Competitive Landscape

Providers of colorectal cancer diagnosis are investing in the research & development of devices and instruments that would aid in diagnosis and treatment more effectively and efficiently.

  • Researchers at the University of Warwick have developed a new deep learning algorithm that is capable of identifying molecular pathways and mutations that result in the development of colorectal cancer. This could be a breakthrough in treating colorectal cancer patients.
  • Research at the Elizabeth and Vincent Meyer Laboratory of Systems Cancer Biology has discovered a small molecule - RGX-202 – which, in future, could be administered along with therapy treatment to starve colorectal cancer metastasis.
  • Researchers at the Hollings Cancer Center are also studying the increasing incidence of colorectal cancer among young individuals and prevalence in minorities. This research could be crucial in controlling the prevalence of colorectal cancer and aid in providing better preventive diagnostic and treatment solutions.
