Oral Cancer Diagnostics Market Overview

The oral cancer diagnostics market is projected to grow at 6.94% CAGR and will touch USD 736.90 Million by 2024. Condition of oral cancer includes cancer in tongue, lips, soft and hard palate, cheeks, the floor of mouth, sinuses, and pharynx. Its treatment of oral cancer largely depends upon the stages. So, early diagnosis of oral cancer is very important that makes it easier for treatment.

Rising aids of proper healthcare, efficiency for detecting oral cancer, technological advancements, increasing number of people who have oral cancer are some factors that are expected to influence the growth of the market. Although higher health costs, unavailability of adequate healthcare facilities, and fewer trained professionals are estimated to hinder the growth of the oral cancer diagnostics market.

COVID-19 Analysis

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has massively impacted the oral cancer diagnostics market. It has disrupted healthcare facilities, especially in underdeveloped countries in Africa and other developing countries. It has prevented the whole cancer diagnosis sector, such as regular tests and screenings, ramification, follow-ups of patients, etc. The infection and disruption caused by COVID-19 have spiked the health risks of cancer patients.

Market Dynamics


Since recent past years, oral cancer diagnostics have been gaining importance due to the increasing number of cases in the sector of oral cancer. As per reports by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which was published in 2017, it was estimated that around 3,70,309 people had pharynx cancer and oral cavity. Also, around 3% of the population registered newly reported increasing cases of the pharynx and oral cancer annually. Hence, the continuous growing pervasiveness for oral cancer largely led to the increased technological advancements for better facilities, diagnostic tools that have influenced the market growth. Furthermore, increasing consumption of tobacco, consumption of alcohol, and HPV-induced cancers are some major drivers of the market.


Oral cancer constitutes the largest share among the affected patients suffering from various types of cancer. The mortality rate caused by oral cancer is comparatively high due to a lack of proper tests to detect the disease at an early stage. Detecting oral cancer in an early stage can largely affect the treatment in a positive way. Furthermore, the present conventional tests in the market take more time and incur higher costs which are a major restraint in oral cancer diagnostics.


Technological development, such as the usage of biosensors, has helped manufacturing companies to improve their functions. Also, the development of befitting biomarkers essential for the rapid test of oral cancer is loaded with several challenges to fulfill the sensitiveness and specification requirements.


Many companies are trying to improve the testing methods and equipment needed during routine tests among cancer-affected people. They are developing equipment called Oral Cancer Rapid Testing Kit or OCRTK. This equipment is capable of detecting oral cancer is lesser time and in an effective way. Technological advancement and innovation of new and convenient products will lead the global oral market. The requirement comprises RNA, lipids, exosomes, and DNA. The emergence of new technologies that boost immunity has increased the opportunity to develop oral cancer tests.

Cumulative Growth Analysis

The increasing cases of oral cancer among people worldwide have significantly increased the importance of oral cancer diagnostics. Several technological developments, such as the innovation of oral cancer rapid test kits are attracting more consumers in recent past years. It is anticipated that the global oral testing kits will register a compound growth annual rate (CAGR) of 6.94%. The market is expected to reach about USD 736.90 Million during the forecast period 2018-2024.

Value Chain Analysis

Oral cancer diagnostics are used to detect cancer occurred in the tongue, lips, cheeks, and pharynx. Rapid invention and development of rapid test kits to detect the cancer earlier than the present devices are used worldwide. The invention of rapids kits will help to cater more consumers for its efficient and time-effective use in forthcoming years.


The global oral cancer diagnostic market is segmented into diagnosis type, indication, and user end.

By indication, the oral cancer diagnosis market based on diagnosis type is divide into biopsy, X-ray, positron emission tomography (PET), computed tomography, and others.

By diagnosis type- the global oral cancer diagnosis market is segmented into biopsy, endoscopy, computed tomography (C.T.), X-ray, ultrasonography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), fluorescence imaging, positron emission tomography (PET), and others.
