Growth in incidence of rectal, GI and colon cancer and flourishing trend of cancer screening through genetic testing are the prime factors allowing the growth of in vitro colorectal cancer screening market. Favorable government guidelines and regulation for increasing awareness in the general population and supporting the adoption colon cancer screening also facilitate the global demand for minimally invasive screening tests that use genetic biomarkers and DNA for risk determination. Colorectal cancer is the third most prevalent form of cancer and its incidence rate has witnessed a major upswing in the past decade.

Technological innovation in the field of IVD and molecular diagnostics and use of biomarkers have significantly urged the demand for in vitro colorectal cancer screening. Growing accuracy of in vitro diagnostic tools thus, have assisted in promoting the growth of this market. Tools such as fecal occult tests and Immuno-FOB ELISA and Immuno-FOB agglutination tests find the widest use in this market, and are majorly favored by users due to their easy applicability. Transferrin assay and methylated gene testing will witness the most rapid growth due to their recent introduction in the market and high accuracy rate over the other counterparts. Developed and high-income regions of the world will dominate the in vitro colorectal cancer screening market through the forecast period. Whereas regions such as Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Middle East and Africa will witness above average market growth.
