Cancer is an uncontrolled growth of cell. Uncontrolled growth of cell leads to formation of tumor which can interfere with the digestive, nervous, and circulatory systems. Tumor cell releases hormones that alter body functions. Tumors that stay in one location and show limited growth are considered as benign cancer. Whereas, the cancerous cell which flow throughout the body part, using lymph, blood, and destroying the healthy tissue are called malignant cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, cancer is the second most common cause of death in the U.S. and accounts for nearly 1 of every 4 deaths. The World Health Organization estimates that, worldwide, there were 14 million new cancer cases and 8.2 million cancer-related deaths in 2012.
There are over 200 different types of cancer, and each of which is classified by the type of cell that is initially affected. Various types of cancer include, prostrate cancer, blood cancer, lungs cancer etc. Cancer is diagnosed with the help of various in-vitro cancer test which include immunoassay, immunohistochemistry, clinical chemistry and nucleic acid tests (NAT). The global in vitro diagnostics (IVD) market size was estimated at USD 51,674.4 million in 2013.
Major factors responsible for the growth of in-vitro cancer diagnostics market are the rising incidences of chronic lifestyle diseases across the globe. Furthermore, growing aging population, and increasing usage of point-of-care testing and personalized medicine are also fueling the growth of in-vitro diagnostics market. Moreover, a new range of condition-specific markers and tests with advances in genomics and proteomics and increasing investment in emerging countries are creating new opportunities for this market. However, inadequate returning policy and stringent regulatory approval framework are restraining the growth of this market. Nonetheless, ongoing research and development in the healthcare sector coupled with advancement in medical technologies is expected to open growth avenues for the market over the years.
