The market for immuno oncology assays is expected to reach USD 5.9 billion by 2024 from USD 2.9 billion in 2018, at a CAGR of 12.7% during the forecast period. The growth of this market is primarily driven by factors such as the increasing adoption of targeted therapy over traditional therapy and increasing demand for mAbs. However, the high cost of immunotherapy treatment and the high attrition rate in the product development cycle are the major factors that are expected to restrain the growth of this market during the forecast period.
Based on products, the immuno-oncology assays market is segmented into consumables and software. The consumables segment dominated the market with the largest share in 2018; this segment is also expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The large share of this segment can be attributed to the availability of a wide range of reagents and kits, increasing use of reagents in different oncology therapeutic treatments, increasing research on cancer immunotherapy biomarkers and its applications in drug development, and easy accessibility to a wide range of reagents.

Based on application, the immuno-oncology assays market is segmented into research applications and clinical diagnostics. Research applications dominated the market with the largest share in 2018. It is also projected to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. The rising prominence of biomarker-based drug development and clinical trials and the emergence of cancer immunotherapy are the key factors driving market growth.
The immuno oncology assays market is divided into four major regions— North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World (RoW).
Asia Pacific is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growing number of CROs in the region, increasing awareness about early detection of cancer, and the shift of manufacturers’ and suppliers’ focus from developed economies to emerging economies are some factors supporting the growth of this region.
