These biomarkers serve as diagnostic tools to detect and evaluate various cardiac conditions, including heart attack, failure, and other such disorders. According to the World Health Organization, cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the primary cause of global mortality, responsible for an estimated 18 million deaths each year.

Increasing prevalence of CVDs is likely to increase the demand for cardiac markers. As the number of individuals affected by CVDs increases, there will be a greater need for diagnostic tools and biomarkers to identify, assess, and manage these conditions. As people become more informed about the risk factors for CVDs, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, smoking, and physical inactivity, they are increasingly motivated to monitor their heart health.

COVID-19 Impact

During the initial phase of the pandemic, healthcare resources were redirected towards COVID-19 care, leading to the postponement of non-urgent cardiac testing and elective procedures. This temporarily affected the demand for cardiac marker testing. Nevertheless, COVID-19 posed cardiovascular complications, including myocardial injury which elevated the need for cardiac marker testing in patients with COVID-19 to assess cardiac health and monitor potential damage.

Cardiac Biomarkers Market Trends

The increasing clinical research efforts dedicated to discovering novel cardiac biomarkers represent a pivotal development in the field of cardiology. These efforts have the potential to transform cardiovascular diagnostics and patient care, enhancing early detection, risk assessment, and the personalization of treatment strategies. As research progresses and novel biomarkers are identified, the future of cardiovascular healthcare is likely to benefit from accurate, comprehensive, and patient-specific approaches to cardiac diagnostics and management.

  • The trend towards personalized medicine has emphasized the need for biomarkers tailored to individual patient profiles. Clinical research seeks to identify markers that can better predict and monitor cardiac risk on a patient-specific basis.
  • Conditions such as heart failure with preserved ejection fraction and microvascular dysfunction have created new diagnostic challenges. Research efforts are underway to discover biomarkers specific to these conditions.

The market by product is categorized into troponins, creatine kinase-MB (CK-MB), myoglobin, natriuretic peptides, c-reactive protein (CRP), ischemia modified albumin. The troponins segment garnered USD 3 billion revenue size in the year 2022. Troponins are predominantly found in cardiac muscle and their specificity for cardiac injury reduces the risk of false positives, making them highly reliable indicators of heart damage.

  • Troponins exceptional sensitivity and specificity for cardiac injury make them indispensable in the early detection of myocardial infarction, the monitoring of heart-related disorders, and risk assessment in cardiovascular healthcare.  
  • Advances in diagnostic technology have made it possible to conduct troponin testing at the point of care. This increased accessibility has driven demand, particularly in emergency departments.

Troponins are prominently featured in clinical guidelines for cardiac evaluation, enhancing their use in routine practice.

U.S. cardiac biomarkers market accounted for USD 1.4 billion revenue size in 2022.

  • As per CDC data, approximately 695,000 individuals suffered from heart disease in the U.S. in 2021, accounting for 1 out of every 5 deaths.
  • Moreover, as healthcare systems adjust to meet the growing demand, cardiac markers continue to play an essential role in cardiovascular medicine, guaranteeing that patients receive the utmost standard of care for heart-related conditions. This is crucial in addressing the elevated mortality associated with cardiovascular diseases.

Cardiac Biomarkers Market Share

The cardiac biomarkers industry is consolidated, with major players such as Abbott, Roche dominating the market. These companies are focused on continuous product innovation to secure a significant market share. For instance, in 2021, Roche has unveiled a set of five new proposed applications for two pivotal cardiac biomarkers, utilizing the Elecsys technology: the N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide test and high-sensitive cardiac troponin T. These well-established biomarkers have demonstrated their efficacy in aiding the management of cardiovascular diseases and can assist healthcare professionals in the diagnosis of heart attacks and the improved management of heart failure. The introduction of such products can certainly be advantageous for the company

Cardiac Biomarkers Industry News:

  • In June 2022, Tosoh Bioscience introduced the ST AIA-PACK BNP assay, designed for use on Tosoh System Analyzers. This assay provides a non-invasive approach for precise measurement of B-type Natriuretic Peptide (BNP) levels in a blood sample, enabling the evaluation of patients for heart failure. The compact AIA-360 system is particularly well-suited for emergency rooms and can be utilized alongside other cardiac markers, including troponin I, CK-MB, and myoglobin. This strategy benefited the company by extending its product portfolio.
  • In July 2021, the distribution of BNP assay was taken over by Beckman Coulter. It is a marker for congestive heart failure, currently known as TRIAGE BNP from Quidel Corporation. Beckman Coulter sells it under the brand name Access BNP for their immunoassay analyzers. This strategic move aimed at generating favorable outcomes for the company.
