The global companion diagnostics (CDx) market was valued at US$ 1,614.5 million in 2015 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 12.0% during the forecast period 2016 to 2024
Companion diagnostic (CDx) is a diagnostic tool used to determine the suitability of a drug therapy to the patient. It has become a critical part of targeted cancer therapy that allows for development of personalized therapy can be developed and administered to the patient. Whole blood samples, tissues samples, or buccal samples are collected and tested for diagnosis and identification of targeted disease biomarker. CDx is usually utilized in identifying genetic mutations and the health and treatment approach implications. In July 2016, the U.S. FDA released a draft guideline for development of a therapeutic product accompanying an IVD companion diagnostic. Companion diagnostics include Gleevec (imatinib mesylate) and BCR-ABL LDT and DAKO C-KIT PharmDx, Herceptin (trastuzumab) and DAKO Herceptest; and Nolvaldex (tamoxifen) and laboratory-developed estrogen receptor positive test.

Companion diagnostics are beneficial for pharmaceutical companies who face challenges with respect to high drug development cost, safety and outcome of clinical trials, and long product approval time. Companion diagnostics lowers development costs, improves time to market and enhances drug safety by enabling rapid identification of target biomarker and the most effective drug therapy. For patients, the technology provides better treatment outcomes and lower morbidity risk. Use of technologies such as PCR, immunohistochemistry, and gene sequencing has enabled accurate diagnosis and determination of targeted cancer therapy. As the CDx tests also aid in revealing the off-target effects of a drug along with identification of a molecular target, CDx have become and indispensable tool for oncologists.
