Furthermore, rising prevalence of neurological diseases such as Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's Disease (AD), dementia, brain tumors, epilepsy, and others present significant unmet needs. AD is a global epidemic. According to Alzheimer's Association, approximately 55.0 million individuals globally have dementia, which is anticipated to rise to 98.0 million by 2030 and around 139.0 million by 2050. Furthermore, approximately 6.5 million individuals in the U.S., will be living with AD in 2022. Therefore, the demand for biomarkers is increasing for drug development, diagnosis, disease progression and research in neurological diseases.

The development of therapeutics used for neurological diseases has been challenging, mostly due to the blood-brain barrier. The key players are focusing on new therapies to prevent, defer, slow, or improve the symptoms of neurological diseases. Companies such as Biogen, AbbVie, AC Immune, Novartis AG, TauRx, Eli Lilly & Co., and others are highly active in developing novel therapies for the treatment of AD. Many market players have their candidate drugs in phase lll, which may be launched during the forecast period. Thus, increasing focus on the development of therapeutics for neurological diseases is expected to boost the demand of immunoassays for neurological biomarkers.

Moreover, key players engaged in the development of neurological biomarkers and partnerships between international companies are expected to fuel the market growth. Government initiatives such as investments in R&D of high-quality, cost-effective & standardized products for diagnosis and treatment of neurodegenerative disease research is also expected to drive market growth. For instance, in November 2021, the Department of Health and Social Care announced an investment of USD 456.62 million in neurodegenerative research in the UK. Moreover, the use of clinical data informatics platforms by productive research organizations is anticipated to propel market growth in the coming years.

Product Insights

The reagents segment held the largest share of 66.78% in 2022 in the immunoassays for neurological biomarkers. The market is witnessing a shift from traditional reagents to ultrasensitive reagents, which is driving the segment. For instance, the use of single-molecule counting assay kits for detecting neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer’s disease is significantly increasing. Furthermore, the approval and launch of novel immunoassay reagents are expected to fuel segment growth.

For instance, in December 2022, Sysmex Corporation obtained marketing approval of HISCL β-Amyloid Assay Kits in the Japanese market. This product detects and quantifies blood samples for amyloid beta, which is used for diagnosing AD.

The instruments segment is anticipated at a CAGR of 17.6% during the forecast period. Increasing approval and the launch of immunoassay instruments are expected to fuel the segment's growth. For instance, in December 2022, the FDA approved Roche’s AD assay employing cobas immunoassay analyzer. Similarly, in July 2022, FDA designated Elecsys Amyloid Plasma Panel as a breakthrough device that allows the measurement of Alzheimer’s disease biomarkers from a blood sample.

Disease Insights

The Alzheimer’s disease segment held the largest share of 38.04% in 2022. A rise in the prevalence of AD is expected to drive the market. The percentage of people with Alzheimer's dementia increases with age. Thus, this disease mostly occurs in people aged 65 and above. According to Alzheimer’s Association, globally, approximately 6.5 million individuals are living with Alzheimer’s disease in the U.S. as of 2022. Owing to the increasing prevalence of AD, government and nonprofit organizations are providing a plethora of research opportunities, which may fuel market growth.

In September 2020, National Institutes of Health (NIH) granted research funding of USD 45.5 million to the University Of North Texas Health Science Center for developing additional biomarkers for understanding the pathology of brain aging in Mexican Americans and non-Latino Whites population.

The Alzheimer’s disease segment is expected to expand at the highest CAGR of 18.4% during the forecast period. Key players are strategically undertaking initiatives to increase their share with the development of advanced biomarker technology for diagnostics and treatment research. For instance, in March 2022, Quanterix signed a licensing agreement with Eli Lilly and Company to use pTau 217 for near-term clinical research and in long term for IVD applications.

The FDA granted breakthrough device designation to Quanterix’s Simoa pTau-181 assay for the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. Thus, such developments are expected to govern the future of Simoa assay development across diseases like Alzheimer’s disease and drive the immunoassay for neurological biomarkers market.

Application Insights

The research application segment captured the highest revenue share of 68.17% in 2022. Immunoassay plays a crucial role in neurological R&D; it is being used to determine pharmacokinetics of biologics and measure biomarkers & the levels of host cell proteins. Moreover, researchers are involved in identifying key biomarkers in serum and plasma to develop assays that are highly sensitive for determining the low levels of biomarkers.

Merck’s Single Molecule Counting, an immunoassay kit, is one such example, which is highly sensitive in measuring neurological proteins in samples. All these factors are increasing the number of research organizations working on biomarker research & validation; pharmaceutical companies that are using biomarkers for drug discovery & development; and ambulatory surgery centers, thereby driving market growth.
