Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Biomarkers Market - Discovery Technologies , Validation Services, Applications & Diseases - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2018" report to their offering.

     (Logo: )

Biomarkers comprise definite cells, genes, molecules, gene products, enzymes, or hormones which are objectively measured as an indicator of typical biological processes, pathogenic processes, or pharmacologic response to a therapeutic intrusion. Major application areas of biomarkers are early disease diagnosis and prevention, drug target recognition, and drug discovery and development. The global market showcases high growth potential in the near future. This market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 18.5% from 2013 to 2018, to reach $40.8 billion by 2018.

The global market has been segmented into biomarker discovery technologies, biomarker services, applications, and disease indications. The biomarker discovery technologies are classified as omics technology, imaging technology, and bioinformatics. Omics technology, which includes proteomics, genomics, transcriptomics, and metabolomics, accounts for the largest share of the biomarker discovery technology market. The biomarkers services market is classified into sample preparation, assay development, and biomarker validation and testing services. Biomarker applications market has been segmented as drug discovery and development, molecular diagnostics, and personalized medicine. Based on type of diseases, the biomarker disease indication market has been classified as oncology, cardiology, neurology, and other diseases (HIV, renal disorders, diabetes, arthritis, and tuberculosis).

Globally, the biomarkers market is witnessing a transformation and is expected to grow at a high growth rate in the coming years. The growth in the market will be primarily driven by advancements in discovery technologies, government initiatives and grants for biomarker research activities, and rising demand for personalized medicine. The incidence and prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer, cardiac diseases, and diabetes is increasing globally and hence, it is crucial to develop new preventive and diagnostics treatments. Since, biomarkers play a significant role in development of preventive and diagnostic tests and drugs, the demand of biomarkers is expected to increase rapidly.

Over the past few years, the biomarkers industry has been witnessing increasing number of contracts and partnership agreements among market players for the development of novel biomarkers. Major research on biomarkers is taking place in the field of oncology. Recent developments of companies such as Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. (U.S.), QIAGEN N.V. (Netherlands), Roche Diagnostics (Switzerland), Hologic, Inc. (U.S.), and Johnson & Johnson (U.S.) have exhibited inclination towards agreements and partnerships, in accordance to their key strategy to expand their market share and geographical presence.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
