Introduction
Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) are cancer cells that are separated from the solid tumor and enter the bloodstream. Circulating tumor cells can be used as a blood biomarker for the early diagnosis of carcinogenesis and cancer and help to monitor metastatic breast, colorectal, and prostate cancers.

The growth of the circulating tumor cells market can be driven by the growing prevalence of cancer, rising research and development in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry, and rising geriatric population. The growing prevalence of cancer is driving the growth of the market, as circulating tumor cells find their applications in the diagnosis of cancer and precision management. For instance, the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) stated that the projected cases of prostate cancer all over India for the year 2015 were 28,079. Furthermore, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society estimated that around, 60,300 people are expected to be diagnosed with leukemia in 2018. The significant growth in the population of cancer patients is paving a way for the growth of the circulating tumor cells market.

Similarly, according to the National Health and Medical Research Council, the Australian government spent over USD 174.6 million on cancer research and development. This growing research and development in the field of healthcare are leading to the growth of the circulating tumor cells market.

The global circulating tumor cells market is segmented based on application, technology, and end-user.
Based on application, the market is further segmented into clinical, research, and drug development.
Based on technology, the market is segmented into CTC enrichment, CTC detection, and combined enrichment and separation of CTC (CTC analysis).
