Market Overview

The precision medicine market is expected to record a CAGR of 9.2% over the forecast period.

The COVID-19 pandemic affected many different areas of the precision medicine market. Amid the pandemic, precision medicine has been advancing at a breakneck speed. The healthcare industry is focused on conducting precision medicine and genomics research to better understand COVID-19 susceptibility, measure its impact, and discover potential therapies. Precision medicine has spurred collaborative efforts between governments, medical institutions, and researchers to swiftly develop effective treatments. For instance, in July 2020, San Antonio Partnership for Precision Therapeutics provided funding for three projects aimed at accelerating intervention for COVID-19. These projects will focus on how biological substances, such as proteins in the immune system and respiratory tract, affect an individual's responses to the virus and how researchers can utilize the data to develop therapeutics.

Furthermore, in the past few years, a number of gene therapies, diagnostics, and medicines have been introduced in this field due to the rising incidence of life-threatening medical conditions, such as cancer and rare diseases. For instance, as per data published by the Globocan 2020 report, 19.29 million people were living with cancer. Hence, characterizing or sequencing genes is the most important method to gain information about genes and their probable mutations.

To achieve the ambitious goals of precision medicine, creative and energetic involvement and collaboration are required between biologists, physicians, technology developers, data scientists, patient groups, governments, and many others via online collaborative forums. For instance, in May 2021, AdventHealth expanded its genomics program with the launch of a data-driven precision medicine initiative that will structure and integrate longitudinal patient data with molecular testing data, creating a dataset and disease network models to help the health system better predict the development of diseases and responses to treatments. Similarly, in April 2022, a Nordic Precision Medicine Forum was planned to strengthen academic research, facilitating collaboration between academia and industry, attracting more industry-initiated clinical trials, and continuous skill development for precision medicine and highly advanced production of pharmaceuticals and MedTech devices. Moreover, the conduction of online forums for specialized areas like oncology and neurology will also boost the market. For instance, there are online forums planned for May 2022 in New Jersey, United States, and for November 2022 in Berlin, Germany, which will provide a platform for healthcare professionals, industry, patient groups, research, payers, and governments to share their experiences and vision for a future of improved cancer patient outcomes.

Innovation and availability of new technology are other key factors for the market’s growth. For instance, in November 2021, Cleveland Clinic expanded its advanced genomic testing platform as the standard of care for patients with cancer. This expanded capability to test tumor samples involves whole-exome sequencing, which examines all the portions of DNA in the genes responsible for making proteins in the body, and RNA sequencing, which assesses how these proteins are encoded. With advancements in precision therapies and diagnostics, coupled with breakthrough innovations, such as Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) and big genomic data, the industry is expected to witness rapid growth during the forecast period. However, the shift from the treatment-based approach to the preventive healthcare approach is expected to hinder the market’s growth.

Key Market Trends

Oncology Expected to Hold the Highest Market Share in the Application Segment

The COVID-19 pandemic had an economic impact and implications on most sectors, including the oncology segment. The pandemic hindered surgeries and, thus, the testing of biopsy tissue. For instance, as per a survey conducted by, released in July 2020, in 534 patients, 31.7% of people who had been diagnosed with breast cancer reported a delay in care. Of these people, 22% reported a delay in screening, and 9.3% reported a delay in treatment due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States. As a result, more cases of advanced cancers are expected, due to delayed biopsies and other issues, such as postponed medical appointments and preventative screening, over the coming years.

Precision medicine applications are primarily directed toward better treatment of oncological diseases and are expected to hold a major share in the precision medicines market. The key factor behind the dominance of the segment is the rising prevalence of cancer and the rising number of drug candidates for the same under clinical trials. Also, in June 2019, the National Institute of Health granted funding of USD 3.7 million to the Washington University School of Medicine to fund an open-source database with an aim to boost precision medicine and genomic research for cancer. Similarly, the collaborations between key market players are another factor propelling the market’s growth. For instance, in September 2021, AstraZeneca and Thermo Fisher Scientific entered a multi-year strategic collaboration to co-develop next-generation sequencing (NGS)-based companion diagnostics (CDx). AstraZeneca said that more than 90% of its clinical pipeline contains targeted precision therapies, including oncology.

The high support from the government through funding and rapid growth of genomic analysis is expected to augment the growth of the precision medicine market at a fast rate over the forecast period.
