A biopsy is the most common, definitive medical procedure used for cancer diagnosis and treatment monitoring. Tissue biopsy in specific is the widely followed procedure to detect cancer because of its accuracy. However, the major drawback for tissue based diagnosis approach is its involvement of invasive surgical procedures, which in many instances preclude the regular treatment monitoring and sometimes the initial diagnosis too.
The search for better minimal invasive diagnostic procedures to aid regular monitory of the patient's response towards the treatment, gave birth to liquid biopsy tests. In recent years the impressive research on cancer biomarkers presence in biological fluids such as blood, which can be collected through minimal invasive techniques yielded promising results to develop better minimal invasive diagnostics procedures which was later named as liquid biopsies.
Liquid biopsy is a minimal invasive medical procedure with the ability to detect presence of molecular cancer biomarkers in the biological fluids. The derived test results help doctors in deciding the further steps in treatment of patient for cancer. The test principally involves the use samples of biological fluids such as blood, urine, serum, and saliva, among others and then enrichment of the samples using different techniques such as Next generation Sequencing (NGS) and Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) to detect the mutations known to cause cancer.
The liquid biopsy market is expected to grow at near double digit annual growth rate. Abilities of liquid biopsy such as minimal invasiveness, possibility of continuous monitory of patient's response towards treatment, and monitory of clonal mutations, combined with growing prominence for precision medicine have fueled the growth of liquid biopsy market.
The research study comprises of in-depth analysis of market trends and market size through different approaches. The entire market has been segmented and estimated in five different approaches namely by product & services, by biomarker and technology, by cancer type, by end users, and by geography.
