INTRODUCTION
The introduction of personalized medicine has brought about a paradigm shift within the healthcare sector. Over the years, many cases have been identified where conventional treatment options have failed to demonstrate any therapeutic benefit. It is estimated that nearly 50% of prescribed drugs / therapies fail to show adequate clinical benefits. In fact, adverse drug-related reactions / side effects are reported to be the fourth leading cause of death in the US. To mitigate challenges associated with adverse drug reactions, there are multiple therapeutic products in the market, and many more under development, which have been tailored to effectively treat disease with unique molecular / genetic signatures.

Personalized therapies demand companion diagnostics to make physicians aware of patients’ unique genetic profiles, thereby, enabling them to make informed decisions. A study of nearly 200 unique pharmacological interventions, across 670 clinical trials, concluded that the likelihood of a lead compound passing through all the phases of clinical development and eventually getting approved is only 11%. The same study highlighted that correlating disease-specific biomarker data with therapeutic susceptibility and using this information to recruit patients for clinical research demonstrated a six fold increase in trial success rates. It is also worth highlighting that companion diagnostic guided drug development efforts have been estimated to help reduce clinical trial costs by almost 60%.

Since the approval of the HercepTest™ (in 1998) for identifying patients for treatment with trastuzumab, over 50 companion diagnostics have been developed for various drugs. Further, several companies have also undertaken initiatives to develop biomarker-based therapeutics for other disease indications, such as infectious diseases, neurological disorders and metabolic disorders. Industry stakeholders are forging strategic alliances with diagnostic developers to develop diagnostic solutions for a diverse array of drugs / therapies. Such initiatives are focused on improving clinical trial success rates, and subsequently optimizing R&D expenditure in the pharmaceutical industry.

The analysis highlights the key trends associated with these clinical studies across various parameters, such as trial start year, trial status, phase of development, key indications, type of therapy, biomarkers evaluated, enrolled patient population and regional distribution of trials.

One of the key objectives of the report was to estimate the existing market size and the future opportunity for companion diagnostics developers, over the next decade. Based on multiple parameters, such as the disease incidence, adoption of companion diagnostic tests and the likely prices, we have provided informed estimates on the evolution of the market for the period 2019-2030. The report also features the likely distribution of the current and forecasted opportunity across [A] different therapeutic areas (oncological disorders (breast cancer, colorectal cancer, leukemia, lymphoma, melanoma, non-small cell lung cancer and ovarian cancer) and non-oncological disorders (Alzheimer’s disease and HIV/AIDs), [B] important assay techniques (in situ hybridization (ISH), immune histochemistry (IHC), next generation sequencing (NGS), polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and others) and [C] key geographical regions (US, EU5, Japan, China and Australia). In order to account for future uncertainties and to add robustness to our model, we have provided three market forecast scenarios, namely conservative, base and optimistic scenarios, representing different tracks of the industry’s growth.
