Key Growth Drivers
- The growing popularity of remote technologies such as wearables and mobile applications is fuelling the digital biomarker market (DBMs) growth. Additionally, increasing digitization across the healthcare industry has transformed medical science, diagnostics, and therapeutics, resulting in rapid advancements in the development and adoption of Digital Health Technologies (DHT) by the healthcare continuum.
- For instance, according to Oracle Cerner, a Texas-based technology company, the digital health innovation space has grown significantly over the last ten years. Global financial and corporate markets invested USD 44 billion in 2021, up from USD 2 billion in 2011.
- The emergence of advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) is likely to create new opportunities for the biomarkers providers, as AI can assist clinicians in identifying risk factors for developing heart failure, monitoring care, defining prognosis, and creating druggable targets.
- For instance, in May 2022, Imagene AI, an Israel-based digital biomarker company, received USD 21.5 million in funding to emphasize precision medicine in cancer care. In February 2022, Koneksa, a U.S.-based company that designs digital biomarkers, raised USD 45 million in Series C financing to accelerate the emergence of its digital biomarker platform.
- Individual privacy concerns and the lack of validation procedures are expected to hinder the biomarkers market’s growth.
- Furthermore, it is difficult to foresee how the Covid-19 virus will manifest in an individual as the symptoms of the virus range from mild fever and cough to acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and death, and the virus has an impulsive course. This variability has prompted an urgent pursuit for biomarkers of disease severity to deal with patients appropriately and prevent fatal complications.
Key Trends by Market Segment
By Types: Molecular Biomarkers hold the largest share of the Global Biomarkers Market.
- Molecular Biomarkers are easily measurable as they emerge from immunology and neurobiology and can competently support other disease characteristics as well.
- In addition, they also can identify individuals who are predisposed to the disease.
- For instance, according to Experimental and Therapeutic Medicine, a U.S.-based journal devoted to laboratory and clinical medicine, some molecular biomarkers, such as p16, and Ki-67, have a higher positive predictive value (PPV) of 46.20% and 32.40% respectively, which can improve treatment for many thousands of women every year.
By Application: The Diagnostics application segment accounts for the majority share of the Global Biomarkers Market.
- Biomarkers are widely used in the treatment and diagnosis of cardiovascular disease, infectious diseases, immunological and genetic disorders, cancer, and other diseases.
- In addition, their use in research emerged from the need for more precise observation of contaminants in the predictive pathway of disease and has the potency to provide information on exposure uptake.
- Biomarkers have also been increasingly used by neuroscientists to help with the diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders, along with investigating their causative factors.
By Disease: The oncology segment accounted for the largest share in the market in 2020, owing to a rise in cancer patients worldwide and an unmet need for more precise, personalized targeted therapies for cancer patients. As per forecast by International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the cancer cases are expected to significantly increase in all geographic regions of world during the next 20 years.
- The dramatic shift toward precision medicines for treating cancer due to the absence of standard diagnosis and therapy/treatment is one of the major contributing factors to the demand for cancer biomarkers.
- Furthermore, biomarkers have numerous legitimate applications in oncology, which is a branch of medicine that specializes in cancer diagnosis and treatment.
- Assessing an individual’s risk of developing cancer
- Determine the prognosis
- Predicting response to treatment that a given therapy will work for a patient
- Monitoring disease progression to ascertain if a therapy is working

By Geography: North America accounts for the largest share among all regions within the Global Biomarkers market.
- Rapid advancements in the development and adoption of digital health technologies (DHT) across North America, notably in the United States, are one of the major contributing factors to the growth of digital biomarkers,
- For instance, according to JTO Clinical and Research Reports, an open access journal of the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer, a total of 17,513 patients (91.6% from community-based practices) in the U.S. were exempt with 83,064 genomic biomarker tests captured between 2015 and 2021.
- In addition, the ratio of patients who received biomarker testing using next-generation sequencing (NGS)-based methods, a technique that allows healthcare professionals to assess multiple cancer genes at the same time, rose from 28.3% in 2015 to 68.1% in 2020.
- Increasing regional government initiatives and strategies for biomarker development and regulatory science activities across the healthcare industry are also propelling the biomarkers market growth in North America.
- For instance, in July 2022, the food and drug administration (FDA) stated that it and multiple medical product developers are keen on developing novel biomarkers for use in assessment to improve clinical trial accuracy and efficiency.
- The Asia Pacific region is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecasted period 2022-2028, owing to the government’s increased emphasis on improving healthcare infrastructure, the adoption of smart medical devices such as wearables, and the rising prevalence of diseases causing high rates of mortality and morbidity.
