“There’s an emerging market of patients and clinicians who want diagnostic content that complies with the same standards of US healthcare companies,” says Sharma. “Growth is also driven in large part by an increase in public health spending and as cancer incidence increases, so too has spending on research in these areas. Patients and clinicians, as well as research organisations, need clinically validated tests that will work for India’s populations.”
As newer therapies for cancer hit the market, there’s a silent churn going on as diagnostic companies prepare for the future by stepping into unchartered territories.
