A liquid biopsy is a medical test that involves the analysis of various biomolecules, such as DNA, RNA, proteins, and other substances in a patient's blood or other bodily fluids, to diagnose and monitor various medical conditions, including cancer. Unlike traditional biopsies that involve the removal of tissue samples from the body, a liquid biopsy is non-invasive and can provide important diagnostic information without the need for surgery or other invasive procedures. Liquid biopsies are still in the early stages of development but hold promise for improving the detection and management of cancer and other diseases.
Middle East and Africa Liquid Biopsy Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints, and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail below
- Growing demand for non-invasive liquid biopsy technique
Liquid biopsies consist of isolating tumor-derived entities such as circulating tumor cells, circulating tumor DNA, and tumor extracellular vesicles among others, present in the body fluids of patients with cancer, followed by an analysis of genomic and proteomic data contained within them. Methods for isolation and analysis of liquid biopsies have rapidly evolved over the past few years, as described in the review, thus providing greater details about tumor characteristics such as mutations, tumor staging, tumor progression, heterogeneity, and gene and clonal evolution, among others. Liquid biopsies from cancer patients have opened up newer avenues in detection and continuous monitoring, treatment based on precision medicine, and screening of markers for therapeutic resistance. Non-invasive cancer diagnostics offer a safer and more patient-friendly approach, resulting in a growing demand for these methods.
- Advancements in precision medicine due to liquid biopsy
Precision medical oncology in the clinical management of cancer may be achieved through the diagnostic platform called "liquid biopsy" (LB). The LB was recognized as a powerful real-time approach for the molecular monitoring of this dynamic cancer disease. This method utilizes the detection of Biomakers in blood for prognostic and predictive purposes by non-invasive means, which in the near future will represent a change in the paradigm of molecular biology understanding and the heterogeneity of tumors. Advancements in precision medicine, fueled by the use of liquid biopsy techniques, have contributed significantly to the growing demand for non-invasive cancer diagnostics. Liquid biopsy techniques, such as the analysis of circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA), Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs), or exosomes in blood or other body fluids, provide valuable information about the genetic makeup of tumors, enabling precision medicine approaches in cancer care.
- Integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning
Liquid biopsy-based approaches offer many new opportunities to measure molecular Biomakers for diagnosing, prognosis, and monitoring disease. Artificial Intelligence (AI), such as machine learning, and its ability to identify signatures of specific disease states in multiplexed data will be key to taking advantage of the new molecular information that microchip-based diagnostics can extract.
Thus, the integration of AI and machine learning is expected to act as an opportunity for the growth of the market.
- Increasing reimbursements and government support for liquid biopsy
The adoption of liquid biopsy has been significantly influenced by government backing. Governments throughout the world have put legislation in place to encourage the adoption of liquid biopsy because they understand how it may enhance patient care, lower healthcare costs, and advance precision medicine. Incorporating liquid biopsy into national cancer screening programs or treatment recommendations is only one example of how this might be done. Other examples include financing for research and development of liquid biopsy technologies and backing clinical trials and studies to produce evidence on their therapeutic efficacy. Such government assistance has aided in boosting liquid biopsy test knowledge, adoption, and reimbursement coverage.
Thus, increasing reimbursements and government support for liquid biopsy is expected to act as an opportunity for the market's growth.
- High cost of liquid biopsy tests
The liquid biopsy is severely constrained by the high cost. While liquid biopsy tests show promise for non-invasive illness detection and monitoring, including cancer, there are cost-related obstacles that may prevent their widespread use.
The necessity for specialized tools and technologies is one of the biggest economic obstacles. Costly tools, including digital PCR machines, NGS platforms, and automated sample processing systems, are frequently needed for liquid biopsy studies. Smaller healthcare facilities with tighter budgets may find it difficult to afford the initial investment and ongoing maintenance costs connected with these technologies, which limits their capacity to provide liquid biopsy tests to patients.
Thus, the high cost of liquid biopsy tests is expected to restrain the market's growth.
- Lack of skilled professionals performing liquid biopsy
The demand for liquid biopsy tests is increasing due to their potential clinical utility in cancer detection, monitoring, and personalized treatment decision-making. However, there may be limited resources, including personnel, equipment, and funding, to support the implementation of liquid biopsy programs in healthcare institutions. This can result in a shortage of skilled professionals who can perform liquid biopsy tests, especially in regions or healthcare settings with limited resources.
Thus, the lack of skilled professionals performing liquid biopsies is expected to challenge the market growth.
- In January 2022, Exact Sciences Corporation announced the acquisition of Prevention Genetics, a genetic testing laboratory, to complement its advanced cancer diagnostics portfolio and support its entrance into hereditary cancer testing (HCT).
