Colorectal Cancer Screening Is Driven By Rising Prevalence Of Colorectal Cancer Risk Factors

Colorectal cancer screening products such as diagnostic instruments, imaging systems, colonoscopes, and analysis and management systems are extensively utilized for early detection of colorectal cancer. Colorectal cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the third leading cause of cancer-related mortality globally, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). The rising risk factors for colorectal cancer such as obesity, poor diet, lack of physical activity, smoking, and alcohol consumption are driving the demand for regular cancer screening tests. Colorectal cancer screening helps in detecting the disease at an early stage when treatment is most effective.

The global Colorectal Cancer Screening Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 14716.31 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.8% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:
Advancements in colorectal cancer screening technologies is a major trend witnessed in the market. Development of non-invasive screening methods such as stool DNA testing and CT colonography is gaining traction. While colonoscopy remains the most accurate screening option, stool DNA testing and CT colonography provide less invasive alternatives. As per the American Cancer Society, stool DNA testing and CT colonography are acceptable screening options for average-risk individuals who are unwilling or unable to undergo colonoscopy. Also, the increasing preference for minimally invasive procedures is propelling the adoption of technologies such as colon capsules for colorectal cancer screening. Colon capsules enable non-invasive visualization of the colon without the need for sedation.
