Global Digital Biomarkers Market: Overview
The global digital biomarkers market is projected to witness significant growth during the forecast period 2022-2028. The high prevalence and growing incidences of chronic diseases and the technological advancements in digital healthcare systems are the key propellers for the growth of the market.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, technological advancements such as the integration of software and artificial intelligence (AI) in wearable devices, rising adoption of mHealth applications, and growing interest in telemedicine and remote patient monitoring systems have all contributed to the market growth for digital biomarkers. The global digital biomarkers market report highlights that the market was valued at $1,808.3 million in 2021 and is expected to reach $16,174.0 million by 2028. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 36.06% during the forecast period 2022-2028.
Global Digital Biomarkers Market Drivers
Conventional chronic disease diagnostics are very subjective and based on a series of visits. As a result, drug development decisions are based on limited, subjective evidence, resulting in large-scale Phase 3 trials of medications that were unsuccessful. Digital biomarkers can predict the efficacy of a drug more swiftly than a conventional clinical endpoint, thereby accelerating product development in the case of certain therapeutic areas. Moreover, the advancements in digital biomarker technology such as voice-based digital biomarkers, mHealth applications, and the adoption of smart wearable devices are gaining popularity among people.
Furthermore, with the rise in prevalence and incidence of chronic diseases, technological adoption will also increase. As a result, disease diagnosis will become more prevalent, and the global market for digital biomarkers will expand. Governments invest a significant amount of money in healthcare insurance so that the overall healthcare costs can be reduced, and the quality of life and affordability of the treatment can be enhanced.
Global Digital Biomarkers Market Restraints
The factors restraining the growth of the global digital biomarkers devices market include the risks associated with return on investment (RoI) and the lack of standardized and interoperability solutions. Moreover, people are specifically concerned about the increased risk of medical errors and invasion of patients’ privacy when digital health devices are being used instead of conventional methods.
Global Digital Biomarkers Market Opportunities
High growth opportunities in emerging economies and the emergence of local companies in Asia-Pacific and the Middle East and Africa hold immense potential for digital biomarkers market growth. In an era of machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI), extracting quantitative digital biomarkers that help in illness detection, characterization, monitoring, and therapy response assessment is becoming increasingly desirable.
Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Digital Biomarkers Market
