Published Date : Aug 2019 | No. of Pages : 140 Pages | Category : Healthcare

The global cancer therapeutics market size was around $100.21 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach $197.45 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 13.4% through 2026.

The report offers comprehensive analyses of the industry dynamics, top investment pockets, key strategic developments, major market segments, and competitive landscape.

Increase in cancer prevalence, surge in collaboration between pharmaceutical companies, and rise in cancer research are the key factors that augment the growth of the cancer therapeutics market. Furthermore, growth in geriatric population is expected to boost the market growth.

However, high cost associated with oncology drug development along with adverse effects associated with cancer therapeutics are some of the factors that restrain the market growth. Conversely, the upsurge in demand for personalized medicine and high potential of developing nations is expected to provide new opportunities for the market players in future.

The global cancer therapeutics market trends are analyzed through the application vertical in the report. The lung cancer segment dominated the cancer therapeutics market, owing to the surge in prevalence of lung cancer and favorable government regulations toward lung cancer therapeutics.

The global cancer therapeutics market growth is also studied through the top selling drugs vertical in the report. The Revlimid segment occupied the largest share in the cancer therapeutics market in 2019, owing to the face that it received a breakthrough therapy designation. Revlimid (lenalidomide) belongs to the class of immunomodulatory drugs. It is an oral cancer drug indicated for multiple myeloma treatment. Revlimid functions against cancer cells partly by impacting the immune system. In October 2016, the combination therapy results of Revlimid and daratumumab (Johnson and Johnson) reported a surge in progression-free survival rate for patients suffering from refractory or relapsed multiple myeloma (or MM). This combination treatment was granted a breakthrough therapy designation by the FDA in July 2016.

Furthermore, the global cancer therapeutics market forecast is also analyzed through the region vertical. By region, North America is anticipated to occupy the largest share by 2026, owing to heavy funding by various organizations and increase in adoption of cancer therapeutics in this region. Moreover, rise in R&D investments is anticipated to facilitate the market growth during the forecast period

A rise in focus of vendors on the emerging markets, such as Asia-Pacific and LAMEA is expected to boost the market growth. Asia-Pacific is projected to witness significant growth in future, owing to increase in R&D investment and surge in cancer awareness. Furthermore, this region presents remarkable opportunities for the venture capitalists and investors, as the developed markets are comparatively saturated.

Increase in competition and continuous technological advancements have led to enhancements in the product portfolio; hence, product approvals and product development are one of the key developmental strategies adopted by the market players in the global cancer therapeutics market. For instance, in April 2018, the Swiss authority for the licensing and monitoring of therapeutic products (Swissmedic) granted approval for Roche's Alecensa (alectinib), as a first-line treatment for patients with advanced or metastatic ALK (anaplastic lymphoma kinase)-positive, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
