Report Overview

The global neurological biomarkers market size was valued at USD 7.2 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.8% from 2023 to 2030. Some of the major factors expected to drive the market are the increasing prevalence of neurological diseases and growing awareness about the condition among physicians & patients. Furthermore, technological advancements and growing R&D efforts for neurological diseases drugs development are further propelling the overall market.

U.S. neurological biomarkers market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

According to a WHO article, published in February 2023, every year nearly 5 million people across the world are diagnosed with epilepsy. Increasing cases of Alzheimer’s disease in older people is expected to fuel market growth. For instance, according to WHO, globally, about 10 million new cases are reported every year and approximately 50 million people have dementia. Furthermore, according to Alzheimer’s Association, approximately 13.8 million people aged 65 and above are estimated to suffer from Alzheimer’s dementia by 2050. According to a WHO report, in March 2023, it was estimated that about 55 million people around the world are living with Alzheimer’s dementia.

Companies such as AbbVie, Biogen, AC Immune, Novartis AG, TauRx, Eli Lilly & Co., and others are highly active in developing novel therapies for the treatment of AD. Several companies have their candidate drugs in phase lll, which may be launched over the forecast period. Furthermore, growing incidence of neurological diseases presents significant unmet needs. Thus, the demand for biomarkers is increasing for drug development, diagnosis, and disease progression research in neurological diseases.

Furthermore, growing research and innovation to help diagnose Parkinson’s disease using antigen-antibody binding techniques is fueling market growth. For example, according to an article by NCBI, in 2022, diagnosis of Parkinson's disease by investigating the inhibitory effect of serum components on P450 inhibition assay requires immunoblotting analysis, and it demonstrates that P450 inhibition assay can discriminate between sera from healthy individuals and patients with Parkinson’s disease. Moreover, this technique is easier to perform and is faster than other assays, as it does not require any pretreatment.

Blood Based Biomarkers (BBBMs) play a crucial role in selecting appropriate therapies and tracking disease progression. This can be evidenced by research initiatives and clinical studies that are being conducted in hospitals for developing biomarker tests, which, in turn, is anticipated to fuel market growth. For instance, Fundació Institut de Recerca de l’Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau is studying circulating microparticles to develop new biomarkers, such as BBBMs, for neurological prognosis of patients.

Type Insights

Proteomic biomarkers accounted for the largest share of 30.48% of the neurological biomarkers market in 2022. Increasing product launches is expected to drive the neurological biomarkers market. For instance, in December 2021, Olink Holding AB launched Olink Explore 3072. It offers ~3000 assays covering all major biological tests, including neurological tests. It can run 96 or 384 samples per run—this further enables the measurement of high concentration of protein in the sample than in the previous version of the platform.

The others segment which includes digital biomarkers is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period. Digital biomarkers offer various biopharmaceutical and pharmaceutical firms supplemental and contextual data to conclude clinical trial decisions. For instance, IXICO plc is entering into collaborations with major biopharmaceutical firms to authenticate clinically digital biomarkers and use them in clinical trials. Such initiatives are expected to boost the segment during the forecast period.

Applications Insights

Alzheimer’s disease accounted for the largest share of 35.60% of the market in 2022 and is expected to dominate the market over the forecast period due to rise in the prevalence of the disease and increasing awareness for early diagnosis and timely treatment. According to Alzheimer’s Association, globally, approximately 55 million individuals are living with dementia, which is anticipated to rise by 98 million by 2030 and around 139 million by 2050. Moreover, in the U.S., approximately 6.5 million individuals are estimated to live with AD in 2022.

Parkinson’s disease segment is expected to grow at a fastest CAGR during the forecast period. Increasing R&D activities in biomarkers may offer new opportunities for Parkinson’s therapeutics. For instance, according to an article published in Pharmaceutical Technology, in October 2022, a research study identified a novel cerebrospinal fluid biomarker for Parkinson’s disease, strengthening the scope of possible drug targets. Hence, neurological biomarkers may open new avenues for treatment of Parkinson’s disease and are projected to drive the market during the forecast period.

End-Use Insights

Research organizations and others segment accounted for a significant share of 43.05% of the market in 2022.Research institutes, such as the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), have been providing funding for biomarker discovery, validation, and qualification of various neurological disorders. In May 2022, Amprion Inc. received an additional research grant of USD 730,000 from NINDS for continued validation of the SYNTap Biomarker Test to diagnose neurological diseases or disorders.

Global neurological biomarkers Market share and size, 2022

Hospital & Hospital Laboratories and others segment is and is expected to grow at a fastest CAGR over the forecast period owing to an increase in hospitalization. Research initiatives and clinical studies are being conducted in hospitals for developing biomarker tests, which is anticipated to fuel market growth. For instance, Fundació Institut de Recerca de l’Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau is studying circulating microparticles to develop new biomarkers for neurological prognosis of patients

Regional Insights

North America region commanded the highest share of around 41.63% of the market in 2022 and is expected to witness a significant growth rate over the forecast period. Growth of the region can also be attributed to the increasing understanding of significant potential of biomarkers in drug development. The local presence of regulatory entities in the region is also expected to fuel growth of biomarker-based drug development in the near future. This is mainly because these entities play a pivotal role in creating awareness among the population about the potential of biomarker-based therapies in disease management.

neurological biomarkers Market Trends, by Region, 2023 - 2030

Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2023 and 2030. The need for early diagnosis of neurological disorders, which would further aid to reduce treatment costs& mortality, is expected to fuel growth of the market in the region. The local presence of leading biomarker companies supported increase in R&D investments driving development of novel biomarkers to meet the rising demand for early diagnosis in the region.
