Advancements in cancer biologics will drive the growth of precision medicine. Development of newer therapeutics approaches including gene therapy for cancer treatment and increasing number of patients undergoing predictive diagnosis will push the market growth. On the other hand, high cost and potential threat to personal health data are some of the factors that may thwart the market expansion. The impact of COVID-19 on industry is observed to be minimal and short term. This impact was mainly due to disruption of supply chain and lockdowns imposed in many countries. However, as the lockdowns were lifted, and supply was restored, the market has recovered quickly. As precision medicine deals majorly with fatal disorders like cancer involving life-saving drugs, the COVID-19 pandemic is poised to have no major impact on the market during the assessment period.

Precision medicine is an emerging way of disease prevention and management. It involves tailored approaches including predictive diagnostic, prevention and treatment strategies for an individual based on their genetic makeup and genetic modifications. Using these approaches, drugs are designed to target specific mutations for better treatment and improved patient outcomes.

Expanding portfolio of precision medicine drugs will create growth opportunities

There has been significant development in the market in the last decade. The number of companies, government and private research institutes involved in the industry has been steadily growing. Continuous and untiring efforts of scientists in assessing human genome and identifying genomic biomarkers have been fruitful. Besides, government initiatives have also played important role in development of the market. For instance, in 2015, U.S. President Barack Obama launched the ‘Precision Medicine Initiative’, in an effort to build a national research cohort of more than one million Americans who volunteer their genetic information to help find various novel ways to improve disease identification and treatment. With all these efforts going on, the number of drugs approved for precision medicine has been on the rise.

In 2005, the number of commercially available precision medicines was just 5. In 2012, the number increased to 81. The number of drugs further increased to 132 by 2016. As of 2020, there are about 286 precision medicine drugs commercially available in the market and many more in pipeline. Currently, the market is dominated by cancer drugs. However, increased R&D activities for other diseases are projected to increase the number of drugs for cardiovascular, infectious, and neurological diseases among others. The number of precision medicine drugs is predicted to grow exponentially, and the continuous expansion of precision medicine portfolio will propel the industry growth.

Precision Medicine Market Analysis
