The global neurological biomarkers market grew at a CAGR of around 15% during 2015-2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to exhibit strong growth during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end-use sectors. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Neurological biomarkers are molecules present in the blood or cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) that support the diagnosis of brain disorders and monitor disease progression. The main sources of these biomarkers are genetic mutations, metabolite levels, brain imaging and changes in protein expression or post-translational modifications. As they detect biological responses to experimental drugs and aid in discovering new targets for therapeutic intervention, neurological biomarkers are widely used in clinical practice during drug development. Presently, researchers measure biomarker concentrations to provide non-invasive testing, earlier diagnosis and personalized treatments.
The rising occurrence of neurological disorders, such as stroke, motor neuron disease (MND), Alzheimer’s disease (AD), Parkinson’s disease (PD) and Huntington’s disease (HD), is escalating the need for faster drug development. This represents one of the primary factors impelling the market growth as biomarkers help measure the efficacy of new drugs and therapeutic strategies. The increasing adoption of minimally invasive procedures and personalized medicines are acting as another major growth-inducing factor. Apart from this, as various neurological disorders share standard features, there is an increase in the demand for multiple biomarkers to differentiate specific diseases and their sub-types. Moreover, advancements in mass spectrometry and imaging procedures enable faster evaluation of large numbers of biochemical markers and structural changes in the brain. This, along with the introduction of digital biomarkers and the rising number of clinical trials, is anticipated to propel the growth of the market in the coming years.
