Key Market Insights 

Close to 90 tests are available for the assessment of TMB / MSI / MMR and TILs
More than 50% of the aforementioned tests use next generation sequencing (NGS) technology, followed by tests based on polymerase chain reaction (22%) for the assessment of biomarker expression levels in cancer tissue samples. Examples of NGS based tests include (in alphabetical order, no specific selection criteria) FoundationOne® CDx™ (Foundation Medicine), Guardant360 (Guardant Health), NeoTYPE® Discovery Profile (NeoGenomics Laboratories).

More than 180 novel biomarker related research articles have been published since 2016 
Majority (~37%) of published scientific articles are focused on the potential use of these biomarkers in evaluating how patients are likely to respond to various types of immunotherapies, such as immune checkpoint inhibitors; in this context, it is worth highlighting that several such tests are available to assess the likely response to anti PD-1 / PD-L1 therapies. Further, close to 25% of such publications discuss the potential of novel biomarker testing in colorectal cancer, followed by lung cancer (nearly 20%). 

Over 170 clinical trials have been initiated over the last 5 years
In fact, leading industry players, such as (in alphabetical order, no specific selection criteria) Bristol-Myers Squibb, Merck Sharp & Dohme, Merck KgaA, Novartis, Pfizer and Roche / Genentech have been involved in most of the novel biomarker related clinical research initiatives. 

North America (primarily the US) is expected to capture the majority share (~43%) of the forecasted opportunity in 2030
This growth is anticipated to be driven by the approval of more biomarker-based tests for guiding cancer treatment related decisions in the near future. Further, the market for tests designed for lung cancer and colon / colorectal cancer, is expected to capture the majority share in the coming decade.
