The Global Precision Market was valued at US$ 45,720.8 million in 2016 and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 9.9% over the forecast period (2017–2025), as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights. Increase in adoption of personalized medicine, in turn, is projected to support the growth of precision medicine market over the forecast period.
Manufacturers are focusing on innovation to tap into emerging markets. For instance, Synapse, Inc. and Strata Oncology, Inc., together, implemented an end to end precision oncology program to improve the outcomes of the treatment with reduced costs, as the companies are selecting the most promising precision medicine clinical trials. Strata Oncology, Inc. also launched Strata NGS test in May 2017, which is designed for 90 gene targeted assay that focuses on genetic alterations in tumor tissue and includes standard care markers and clinical trial eligibility markers. AstraZeneca launched a next-generation asthma drug in 2016 named, Benralizumab for eosinophil biomarker, which is a part of the new way of biological treatments for people with asthma, as AstraZeneca is moving toward precision medicine to resolve the disease. The Food and Drug Administration approved the first gene therapy, Kymriah (tisagenlecleucel) on August 2017, which was developed by Novartis for the treatment of patients below 25 years of age with B-cell precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia. This therapy represents a shift from chemotherapy to precision medicine.
Furthermore, The University of Southampton in Britain is conducting a phase 2 clinical trial in 2017 for testing whether the addition of acalabrutinib to R-CHOP could improve outcomes of patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and then the trial researchers will gather the data on gene expression of DLBCL patients as a part of precision medicine for aggressive lymphoma consortium that supports the growth of precision medicine in hematology in near future.
Key players in the precision medicine market are adopting strategies such as collaboration to strengthen their product portfolio. In 2016, Precision for Medicine, Inc. signed a deal for the acquisition of ACT Oncology, which will help the company to have a strong foothold in the personalized cancer clinical trial space. In August 2017, Variantyx, a genetic testing company, announced its partnership with FDNA. FDNA has a facial recognition software, which helped in the diagnosis of rare diseases. It is expected to fulfill the demand of patients and offer them precision medicine. In August 2017, Alexion Pharmaceuticals announced a partnership with Sema4 for the improvement of company’s diagnosis rate of rare diseases and also to speed-up development of drugs in the near future. Precision for Medicine Group, Inc. completed the acquisition of Agility Clinical, a contract research organization that focuses on clinical development of rare diseases and orphan therapies in September 2017. The aim of the acquisition was to bring new precision medicines into the market.
Nevertheless, lack of reimbursement policy is expected to act as a restraint for the growth of precision medicine market.
