Urothelial Carcinoma Diagnostics Market to Expand at Over 11% CAGR through 2030; COVID-19 Pandemic Resulting in Reduced Manufacturing and Sales


  • Published On : Sep 22, 2020

According to World Health Organization (WHO) estimates, every year, 3.8 Mn new cases of urothelial carcinoma occur around the world, with the recurrence rate being nearly 30-50%. However, early detection by use of modern diagnostics enables quick medical decision-making and consequent treatment for urothelial carcinoma. Accuracy in urothelial carcinoma diagnostics plays a significant role in the reduction of treatment costs.

Moreover, increased demand for treatment of urothelial carcinoma is a key driver for increasing revenue inflow from diagnostic tests and procedures. However, development of effective urothelial carcinoma screening methods will play a significant role in the early detection and subsequent reduction in mortality rates. Furthermore, technological advancements in diagnostic methods such as the adoption of diagnostic imaging procedures, rapid molecular diagnostic kits, and use of biomarker testing in urothelial carcinoma screening programs are some other factors that will aid the growth of the urothelial carcinoma diagnostics market.

According to the latest report published by PMR, the global urothelial carcinoma diagnostics market was valued at US$ 1 Bn in 2020, and is expected to progress at a CAGR of over 11% during the forecast period (20202030).
