Companion Diagnostics (CDx) Development Market Revenue to Cross US$ 1.8 billion by 2035

Published: July 2022

According to a recently published report by Roots Analysis, the increasing adoption of CDx-guided drug development along with the growing preference for personalized healthcare is driving the demand for companion diagnostic development services

Companion Diagnostics (CDx) Development Industry Overview

The global companion diagnostics (CDx) development market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 11% from 2024-2035, reaching USD 1.8 billion by 2035.

Companion diagnostics (CDx) are essential tools in personalized medicine, that enables the identification of patients who are most likely to benefit from a specific therapy. As the development of novel therapies advances, the demand for close to 170 companion diagnostics approved by the USFDA, and more than 140 under investigation for various disease indications is expected to grow significantly. However, CDx development faces various challenges, such as varying diagnostic thresholds and simultaneous submission of these diagnostics with drug applications. Despite these challenges, the potential to enhance patient care and have better therapeutic outcomes, especially for oncological disorders makes CDx development a critical focus area for regulatory authorities and the pharmaceutical industry. The aforementioned factors are likely to present lucrative market growth opportunities for contract service providers and the CDx development market is anticipated to grow faster in the coming years.

Market Drivers 

Several factors contribute to the growth of the companion diagnostics (CDx) development market. The updated regulatory requirements for therapeutic approval, technological innovation and the growing demand for personalized medicine are among the most important growth drivers of the CDx development market. Further, the substantial development seen in this industry is mainly the result of stringent drug approval guidelines and growing focus on developing patient centric tailored treatments. Furthermore, the increasing adoption of companion diagnostics (CDx)-guided drug development, coupled with the lack of well-equipped infrastructure and expertise among drug developers for CDx development, is likely to lead to a rise in the outsourcing of CDx development to service providers. In addition, service providers are dedicated to upgrading their services by integrating advanced technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning. This integration aims to elevate the quality of companion diagnostic development and optimize services, ensuring that they align with regulatory requirements to accelerate the drug approval process for serious and life-threatening diseases. Therefore, many drug developers are compelled to outsource the CDx development operations to contract service providers, thereby contributing to the growth of this market.

Market Restraints 

The process of CDx development is complex and challenging due to several factors. One of the primary restraints of this industry is the identification of predictive biomarkers that classify patients into responders and non-responders for a specified therapeutic agent. This step is hampered by the limited availability of genomic and clinical data. In addition, the discovery and development of CDx is a cost-intensive process, requiring specialized workforce, facilities and cutting-edge technologies, which can limit drug developer’s ability to manage the complexities associated with CDx development. The lack of expertise and a skilled workforce can further hinder the optimization of the CDx development process. These challenges highlight the need for a more streamlined and efficient approach to CDx development, which can facilitate the implementation of personalized medicine.

Growth Factors

Despite several challenges, various growth factors continue to drive the companion diagnostic (CDx) development market. It is worth noting that several service providers have expanded their service portfolio to include end-to-end CDx development services by using different analytical techniques, thereby offering a wide range of services to developers. In addition, various service providers claim to offer services by integrating advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms, ensuring high-quality companion diagnostic development and providing efficient services. In fact, several service providers have a well-established global network of research labs and facilities to streamline the co-development of companion diagnostic and therapeutic products. Additionally, stringent regulatory guidelines by regulatory authorities, such as the USFDA and EMA has accelerated growth of this market. Moreover, collaborations with pharmaceutical companies, academic institutions and research organizations to address the growing demand for companion diagnostic across the world, is likely to drive considerable growth in the market.
