Report : Middle East & Africa Colorectal Cancer Market Forecast to 2028 – COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis – by Modality (Diagnosis Type, Therapy Type, and Imaging Type) and End User (Hospitals and Diagnostic & Research Laboratories) 

At 2.5% CAGR, the Middle East & Africa Colorectal Cancer Market is speculated to be worth US$ 1,076.92 Million by 2028, says Business Market Insights

According to Business Market Insights’ research, the Middle East & Africa colorectal cancer market was valued at US$ 885.81 million in 2022 and is expected to reach US$ 1,076.92 million by 2028, registering an annual growth rate of 2.5% from 2022 to 2028. Various benefits offered by generic drugs and growing pharmaceutical industry in emerging economies are the critical factors attributed to the market expansion.

Personalized medicine is a relatively new approach. However, it is rapidly expanding in the healthcare sector, where medical doctors can select a treatment based on a patient's genetic profile, which can minimize harmful side effects and lead to successful results in a short time.

Cancer personalized medicine involves studying individuals' genetic makeup for tumor growth. By studying patient’s genetic makeup, the oncologist can customize the treatment depending on the patient’s genetic mutations. For instance, two of the most common inherited colorectal cancer syndromes include familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) and hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC). However, determining the type of mutation in the cancer patient provides crucial information for the type of treatment that needs to be given to the patient.

Before personalized medicines, every patient received the same treatment for colorectal cancer. However, with the advent of personalized medicines, patients are now given treatments based on their genetic makeup. In such cases, the patient’s tissue is excised to carry out the genetic diagnosis process. The patient’s tissue sample is checked for gene mutations, and chemotherapy is carried out depending on the type of mutation. This allows the right treatment to be performed at the right time, which reduces the mortality rate. Biomarker testing analyzes the genetic makeup of a patient's tumor. Furthermore, test results provide patients and their medical teams with important information about the type of treatment that could work best for the patient, hence the term "precision medicine." In 2020, the Colorectal Cancer Alliance (Alliance) launched Personalized Biomarker Patient Education Campaign to empower patients and caregivers with information regarding precision treatment planning in colorectal cancer through biomarker testing, which can help improve the chances of survival.

Due to these advantages of tailoring the treatment based on individuals' genetic profiles, the personalized medicine approach is expected to create many opportunities for the MEA colorectal cancer market.
