Macrophage marker Market

The Macrophage marker Market Growth is Driven by Increasing Incidence of Cancer

Macrophages play a crucial role in innate immunity and are known to be involved in several physiological and pathological processes such as development, tissue remodeling, metabolism, inflammation and cancer. Macrophage markers are molecules that are expressed on the surface of macrophages and are used by researchers to identify and characterize macrophage subsets and functions. Macrophage markers are gaining immense importance in cancer research for applications such as diagnostic marker identification, determining cancer progression and predicting treatment response.

The global Macrophage Marker Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 295.15 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 2.7% over the forecast period 2023 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Key Trends:

One of the key trends spurring growth in the macrophage marker market size is the rising incidence and prevalence of cancer globally. According to the World Cancer Research Fund International, in 2020, there were an estimated 19.3 million new cancer cases and 10 million cancer deaths. Macrophage markers play an important role during tumorigenesis and tumor progression by interacting with cancer cells, regulating inflammation and remodeling tumor microenvironment. For instance, CD163, CD206 and CD204 markers have been associated with tumor-associated macrophages that promote cancer cell invasion, metastasis and immunosuppression. Increased understanding of macrophage heterogeneity and plasticity is driving research to target specific macrophage subsets as a potential anti-cancer therapy using macrophage markers.

Porter’s Analysis
