High Incidence of Colorectal Cancer amongst Geriatrics Encourages Uptake of Screening Tests
The primary factor driving the growth of the global in-vitro colorectal cancer screening test market is the increasing preference for the non-invasive diagnostics. The huge pool of geriatrics, who are also fueling the growth of this market, are opting for the non-invasive measure as they reduce recovery time and offer ease of operation to the medical professional. These methods also eliminate the hassle of dietary restrictions and are also known to be exceptionally effective.
The market is also being favored by growing number of people with a history of inflammatory bowel disease such as Crohn’s disease, which has a tendency to result in colorectal cancer. Furthermore, rising number patients suffering from infections to the gastrointestinal system, respiratory tract, and ulcerative colitis has also created a significant surge in the number of in-vitro colorectal cancer screening tests in recent past. The growing number of diabetics are also projected to contribute toward the rise of the global market as they remain susceptible to such diseases.
Substantial advancements in technology, which has rendered a positive effect on the life expectancy of patients, have played a vital role in the growth of this market. The growing awareness about the disease and increased spending by the governments to spread awareness about it has also made a significant contribution to the global market.
Tough Compliance Norms Deter Global Market
The rigmarole of obtaining approvals for in-vitro colorectal cancer screening tests has been the Herculean task for several companies operating in the global market. The companies are expected to find it even more difficult as the regulatory norms are getting even tougher to comply with. The U.S. FDA and EMA have made their protocol severely strict in recent years for both existing players as well as new entrants. Thus, this is expected to restrain the global market to a significant extent in the near future. The poor reimbursement schemes, especially in the developing countries are also hampering the overall market.
