The analysts forecast the Global Imaging Biomarkers market to grow at a CAGR of 15.09 percent over the period 2013-2018. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing prevalence of cancer. The Global Imaging Biomarkers market has also been witnessing the emergence of personalized medicines. However, the poor regulatory and reimbursement systems could pose a challenge to the growth of this market. 

The report, the Global Imaging Biomarkers Market 2014-2018, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market in the Americas, and the EMEA and APAC regions; it also covers the Global Imaging Biomarkers market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

The Global Imaging Biomarkers market has been witnessing an increase in the number of strategic alliances being formed among organizations. Mergers and acquisitions help organizations grow rapidly, expand their business processes, and gain more market share. The introduction of innovative technologies by small and mid-sized companies is prompting major pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to form strategic alliances with these smaller companies to identify various imaging biomarkers. 

The increase in strategic alliances is resulting in an increase in the application base for imaging biomarkers in drug discovery and diagnosis domains. For instance, in 2012, Genomic Health Inc. and OncoMed Pharmaceuticals announced a strategic alliance for Biomarker Research and Discovery using the Next-generation Sequencing process.

According to the report, the use of imaging biomarkers in the field of drug discovery has increased considerably over the past few years. The increase in the demand for imaging biomarkers is primarily because of their ability to be used in target discovery and validation, identification of disease mechanisms, toxicity profiling, and proof-of-concept studies.

Further, the report states that one of the main challenges hindering the growth of this market is the presence of poor regulatory and reimbursements systems. The current regulatory and reimbursement systems present in various countries are not well-suited for imaging biomarker-based diagnostics. The development of novel and useful imaging biomarkers is also an expensive and time-consuming process.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
