Circulating Tumor Cells (CTC) Global Market Report 2022: Growing Demand for Minimally Invasive Diagnostics Fuels Sector

DUBLIN, Nov. 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The “Circulating Tumor Cells (CTC) Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027” report has been added to’s offering.


The global circulating tumor cells (CTC) market size reached US$ 9.54 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, the publisher expects the market to reach US$ 18.24 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 11.41% during 2021-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use sectors. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Circulating tumor cells (CTC) are cancer cells that split away from the primary tumor and appear in the circulatory system as singular units or clusters. They have different biological phenotypes, such as epithelial, mesenchymal, and mixed epithelial-mesenchymal. CTC levels in a patient’s blood can allow early detection of cancer and act as a prognostic indicator. As they are in minimal quantity, several technologies are used for the isolation, enrichment, and detection of CTC, such as immunocapture, size-based separation, density-based separation, and microscopy. It also has wide-ranging applications in liquid biopsy, cancer research, drug development, and clinical biomarkers.

Circulating Tumor Cells (CTC) Market Trends:

increasing prevalence of cancer due to genetic disorders, rising alcohol consumption, and rapid lifestyle changes are key factors driving the market growth. CTC assists in the early identification and real-time monitoring of lung, breast, digestive tract, and prostate cancer. In line with this, the increasing utilization of CTC in patient screening for metastasis and preclinical studies of new cancer drugs is favoring the market growth.

Furthermore, the growing demand for minimally invasive (MI) diagnostic procedures and widespread adoption of CTC-based liquid biopsy to enable rapid recovery and limit trauma are providing a considerable boost to the market growth. Apart from this, the introduction of nanotechnology to improve the sensitivity and efficiency of CTC isolation and detection is providing an impetus to market growth. Moreover, increasing utilization in medical research to develop cell culture models for drug screening, disease modeling, genome editing, and tumor immunity is creating a positive outlook for the market.

Additionally, the increasing awareness amongst healthcare professionals and patients about the importance of early cancer diagnosis is positively influencing the market growth. Other factors, including rapid advancements in biomedical imaging and bioengineering technology, extensive research and development (R&D) activities, and the rising demand for preventive medicine and companion diagnostics, are anticipated to drive the market growth.
