Accelerated Demand for Targeted Therapy
According to a 2016 survey published in an article by the National Centre for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), 75% of physicians believe that genomic testing could improve the treatment of cancer patients. The article further stated that the US annually spends $5 billion on genetic tests, which is anticipated to reach $15-25 billion by 2021 further accelerating the targeted therapy demand. Growing awareness about the benefits of personalized medicine is also one of the key factors in the upsurge of precision medicine, genomics & proteomics technologies. Precision medicine which involves the analysis or specific indications for specific drugs in a particular patient, are an essential part of individualized treatment regimens for many chronic diseases and conditions. Implementation of patient-selection diagnostic set-up in the earlier phases of drug development has been the core objective of pharmacological, pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical firms for which significant efforts are being put so that targeted therapies are delivered to the right candidate which further supplements the growth of the precision medicine market. For instance, Roche has developed EGFR inhibitor Osimertinib sold under the brand name “Tagrisso” for treating lungs cancer and monoclonal antibody trastuzumab sold under the brand name “Herceptin” for HER-2. Genentech had launch BRAF inhibitor vemurafenib commercially known as “Zelboraf”, and Merck has come up with immunotherapy pembrolizumab sold as “Keytruda” which targets the exact biomarkers regardless of tumour location. Other FDA approved therapies in rare and advance cancer includes Novartis’s “Kymriah” and Gilead’s “Yescarta”. These therapies enable healthcare providers to make informed clinical decisions and reduce the likelihood of unnecessary adverse events.
How has COVID-19 had a significant impact on the Precision Medicine Market?
The COVID-19 disruption has handicapped the global market extensively due to numerous challenges in supply chain of lot of essentials. The European Union has been revamping its guidelines on precision medicine, to bring them in line with internationally established standards. However, these political priorities might get impacted due to the COVID-19 pandemic not only for current year but also in future. In Europe, scrutiny has been on the conflicts amongst Member States’ own actions and those taken mutually at European Union level. The initial indications of nationalist political response of member states, such as the closing of borders and export bans on medical equipment were not encouraging.
Moreover, during the pandemic, termination of elective care to increase hospital capacity and social distancing measures to reduce community spread of the coronavirus resulted in a steep drop in healthcare use and expenditure. This has certainly delayed and hindered surgeries and testing on biopsy tissue. Thus, delayed biopsies, postponed preventative screening and medical appointments might lead to wave of more advanced cancers since earlier the cancer is detected, the better the outcome.
However, as the year progressed, healthcare use and spending began to rebound as in-person care resumed for hospital and lab services. Thus, the challenges also give birth to opportunities, and it is rightly applied to the healthcare care industry which is now living through the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and evolving under changing circumstances. Precision medicine treatments can help to increase the positive patient outcome for severely affected COVID patients. There are more than 60 subtypes of SARS-CoV-2; all patients have complex array of underlying risk and disease tolerance; and all patients have varying response towards COVID-19. These aspects help to promote the use of personalized treatment based on the requirement of the patient. Thus, COVID has helped promote the importance of precision medicine for treatment of different diseases.

What are the Current Market Drivers?
Growing precedence of precision medicine over traditional practice of “one-size-fits-all” therapies
At present most of the diagnostic test are being carried out in centralized, hospital-based or clinical laboratories which makes use of expensive equipment and highly trained professionals. The costly, time-consuming, and invasive nature of these tests makes it extremely challenging for healthcare professionals to diagnose diseases in the early stage a key issue faced by healthcare systems across the globe. This, however, has led to the development of fast, reliable, and disease specific diagnostic tools that can be used to eliminate the traditional practice of “one-size-fits-all” therapies and help in determining a specific therapy for patients, which reduces overall healthcare costs and improve public health. Precision medicine reduces healthcare costs by decreasing the consumption of reagents, shortening analysis times, and increase efficiency. Precision medicine not only helps in early detection and screening of chronic diseases but also improve patient outcomes by providing high diagnostic accuracy and most-effective targeted therapy options. Recent advances in precision medicine technologies integrated with non-invasive procedures are accelerating the development of rapid, low-cost, and reliable diagnostics and therapeutics. Many new technologies and tests are also being developed that integrate the various functions of sample collection, analytic deduction, and readout. These advantages of precision medicine and increasing test marketing of these therapies are expected to drive market growth in the coming years.
